Hi, I live in Bangladesh, cameras are extremely expensive here compared to earnings. i am an entry level finance professional and my monthly salary $300. so... go figure! so i bought Sony A390 in 2011, and later in 2013 i bought Sony 35mm f1.8 prime. i only take travel photos and occasional family photos. and i'm completely content with the picture quality. but recently i've been wondering whether i should get a new camera or not. and it seems like sony is not really interested in A mount...

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".

My A390 recently started acting up with SteadyShot becoming non-functional. Since it has terrible performance at anything higher than ISO 400, I have decided to get rid of it. I'm really interested in the A6000 (almost ready to buy) but needed some advice on what to do with my Alpha Mount Lenses. I'm selling my Kit lens along with the A390 but also own a 55-200mm and a 50mm F1.8 lens. Now, both these lenses are far cheaper than their equivalents in E-mount. I wanted to know what features I...
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...
