Sony Alpha DSLR-A550 review

Image stabilization in-camera and true fast live view put the A550 at the top of the "features" rating. Add Manual Focus Live View Check and face detection to an impressive list of features, and no other camera can match it. Image quality (I shoot in RAW) is the equal of any competitor. The A550 is fun and easy to use and the number of my 'keepers' has nearly doubled from my former A100. Whether 'creating art' or 'shooting snaps' this camera tops all others in fun and success. For the price, no other camera equals it.


None, other than I enjoy taking it with me everywhere and friends, neighbors, wife, grandkids, etc are regretting my purchase!
