I heard a lot of praise for the CCD DSLRs such as the E-1, A350, and K100D Super. Some say they have better color rendering some say they have a "film-like look". I'm eager to actually experiment and test as to what these claims actually mean and so am thinking of getting a used 2nd hand DSLR with a CCD sensor.

I am thinking of upgrading my a390 to the SLT a58, mainly for the CMOS sensor, video and AEL button. I am also hoping that the performance in low light at higher ISO will be better (anyone have any experience of this?). However I have recently purchased the HVL-F43AM flash to use with the a390, and I want to be certain that it will work with the a58 which I understand has a different hotshoe mount. Does anyone know if an adaptor is included with the a58, and whether using an adaptor will lose...

Hi, Without thinking I took a couple of pics with my Sony a390 and I forgot the memory card was still in my PC . It let me take the pictures ok and I'm wondering whether they will be saved on some internal memory and if so how can I access them ?
