Sony Alpha DSLR-A500 review
I have used this camera since Dec 20, 2009.
Live View: Ooutstanding and incredibly fast. Much much faster than every other DSLR that I tried.
Face Detection, great for taking pictures of small children
Image Quality: Very sharp at higher ISO settings and under low light.
HDR: Have not played with it that much, but it does do a great job alingning picutures and merging into one photo fairly seamlessly. When shooting under questionable lighting, I will default to the HDR mode. Right now I am playing with how many EVs to use for the 2 shots.
As a new DLSR user, I found this camera to have the features that I wanted at a great price. During the Christmas sale I paid $800 for the A500 and the 18/55 and the 55/200 Sony lenses. Abolutley no regrets!
