I recently had a small accident with my A200 where I was trying to get a shot low down and near the ground. I either jarred my arm or hit my leg but the result was that the camera slipped from my hands and hit the ground. It was only about a 1 foot drop if that but it was enough to kill the SuperSteady Shot and in turn also messed up the sensor position. I'm not hopeful of repairing it given that I've seen prices listing about £120 so I'm also considering newer models. The problem I have is...

Has anyone had a problem with the Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 XR on an A57?I have now bought two of these, the last one arrived today, and had to return both as they are displaying the same problem. When the lens is connected to the camera it makes a ticking sound, won't focus and won't release the shutter. If I switch to manual focus it will focus but the screen flashes with a white flash, the f number flashes and it will release the shutter. It will however work ok on my spare A300. My other Sony...

Hello all, Getting to head into town in a couple of days and so get to buy a new lens (or two if the price is right) for my A57.  We are having our first baby in a few months and so being set up for that is one of my main priorities.  I have a DT 35mm 1.8 which I almost never take off the camera, and a Ricoh GR for landscape shots.  I am looking for a macro lens for the newborn feet, fingers, etc, shots.  I am assuming the 50-90mm range will be the best, but am seeing if the Sony 30mm macro...

Hi, I am using SLT A57. I am kind of unhappy with the quality of the images i am getting from my camera. Am not sure where I am going wrong. The exposure meter in the camera, while taking the snap, showed as 0 (supposed to be proper exposure). But when I try to edit the image in editor (Rawtherapee) , the editor shows as the image is under exposed by 1 to 2 EV. I tried using all the available types of metering modes in SLT-A57, but that didn't give me any better result. How to confirm that my...

I have Sony A57 and lately I bought Sony A77. Changing exposure compensation on A77 I don't see any changes looking trough viewfinder or on the screen only after taking the picture. On the other hand A57 shows the changes on the viewfinder and the screen before taking the picture. Is it normal for A77 or it is something wrong with this camera? I can't find any information about that in the manual of A77. My settings for both cameras: A priority /A57 plus DT1.8 35mm - A77 plus DT2.8...
