Re: That would be a nice to have feature

Add the A550 to that list that won't fire without a card.

I think this is mainly a noob problem because someone inexperienced with an advanced camera may be a bit overwhelmed by all the features and could easily forget the memory card.

Isn't that odd... because Sony has included the option to prevent the camera from firing without a card in place specifically on their high end models like the A700/A850/A900.

The A100 also would not fire without a card. I'm not excusing Sony for allowing it to happen with their lower end OVF cameras but the SLTs do flash a warning that's pretty hard to miss. Anyways it's still primarily a noob problem.
