This Sony DSLR camera is my first “real” camera. This is definitely not a point and shoot camera. However, this another camera that you don't need to read the book to figure out how to use it. You will find that the majority of my pictures on Lisa Cooking are done with this camera. My inlaws also took it to Hawaii with them on their vacation.
Some of the highlights of this camera include 10.2 (aff)-megapixel Super HAD CCD which gives you clear, sharp photos, Live Preview of your subject, Tiltable 2 (aff).7-inch Clear Photo LCD Plus screen, Continuous shooting while viewing, Smart teleconverter 2x zoom, Expanded ISO sensitivity, Super SteadyShot in-camera image stabilization, Bionz image processor, 1200-zone evaluative metering, Dynamic Range Optimizer, Anti-Dust technology, Auto Pop-up flash, Eye-Start autofocus system, 9-point center cross AF sensor, Scene Selection modes: Portrait, Landscape, Macro, Sports, Sunset and Night Portrait/Night View situations, Creative Style Settings including Standard, Vivid, Portrait, Landscape, Night View, Sunset, B&W and Adobe RGB modes, Index and Slide Show Display, High-resolution thumbnails for PhotoTV HD viewing, Function Guide Display On-screen menus are intuitive and easy to use, Stamina Battery Power, and High-capacity media options.
In plain English, you'll take some of the best pictures of your life with this DSLR camera. The picture to the left here was taken the same day I got the camera. If I could figure out how to use the DSLR in one day, anybody can use this camera!
