Sony A200

Sony, in comparison with other brands, is a newcomer to Digital Slr cameras. I recently took over the business of Konica Minolta-dSLR, so things can not be as bad as some might hope. The Sony A200 is one of the cheapest digital SLR between input level the market.

There is a 10.2 MP CCD sensor on board the A200 and Sony blocks an 18-75 mm lens with the camera, which is a worthy goal for the average picture distance. It is not as powerful as the Nikon VR 18-105 mm lens, but a small step up from the 18-55 mm lens is supplied with starter dSLR other brands. Ring focus is placed on the outer edge of the lens body. It has a fine-toothed gear-like feel that as an approach. It is different from other goals, but some may find this distracting and uncomfortable. Not in the way of functionality and performance, however.

The size also seems a little larger than the EOS 400D and EOS 1000D. It is easily the heaviest of the entry-level digital SLR. The camera quality is quite good, although it feels almost plastic everywhere.

The quality of the LCD display of 2.7 inches is average. Sony has brought in the colors for the menus and everything DSLR seems easy to use, but there is little help to guide the user through menus. The buttons on the back for the camera operation are well considered. The overall direction keys, for example, allows you to scroll through images in diagonal. The buttons are flat, smooth and effortless to use. But wear them through the tough months of use could affect some.

The controls are placed in different areas of the camera and not crowded together. This may be convenient to use once you get used to this type of design, but it also means you have to move your fingers around the camera to access them. Probably not the most optimal design. DSLR While trying to give users faster access to the controls, the A200 has a few settings Hidden behind a mode button. These include the flash mode, metering and autofocus settings mode. ISO noise reduction and long shots exposure are also present.

We are very impressed with the features and design effort Sony has put into this entry level DSLR. One such feature is a meter that measures the amount of movement while you are taking a picture. A flashing light next to it alerts you it. The stabilization control is present as a single slider on a corner of the camera and not the lens. Stabilization is average, but only the warning is enough to capture their attention and were very careful in holding the camera steady.

The other impressive feature is the flash. With almost everything automatically, the flash is capable of measuring light with great precision. We tried all kinds of shots with objects very close and some moderately so far away. The amount of light is correct dismissed and the funds are rarely plunged into darkness. If you think Sony's flash is not enough, then you might face a problem. Sony uses different mounting a flash compared to Canon and Nikon, so the purchase of a flash party could prove a bit of a problem. It must be said that this support feels more solid than the rest. The handle is also a little nicer than the Canon.

Image stabilization is present in the camera and not the lens with the Sony A200 Digital Cameras . A sensor detects the face in front eyepiece and then becomes the focus and turns off the LCD screen, with some of the other cameras. People with high definition TVs and monitors will be interested to know that this camera shoots 16:9. This means you do not have to go through the trouble of harvesting all the individual photos manually or using automation an image editor, which can often cut your areas of interest.

The camera is not very fast and the speed unit to 3 frames per second is not as impressive as the high-end cameras, but they easily make up to other cameras in its class. The A200 uses CompactFlash memory and Sony's proprietary Memory Stick Duo as their point and shoot cameras.
