    Simply the best midrange DSLR (that isn’t even a DSLR), December 30, 2011

    This review is from: Sony a (alpha) SLT-A65V (A65) – Digital camera – SLR – 24.3 Mpix – Sony DT 18-55mm lens – optical zoom: 3 x – supported memory: SD/ MS PRO Duo/ SDXC/ SDHC/ MS PRO-HG Duo (Electronics)

    This is a serially (and over time very extensively) revised review, as I have had a chance to spend lots of time with this camera over the last ten months and taken roughly 15000 pictures – for sure one of the best electronics purchases I have made in the last 10 years. Some of the initial problems I saw (flash overexposure for one) have been addressed in firmware updates (or require some user adjustments). JPEGs (Sony’s default jpeg algorithm could use some tweaking/sharpening) print out sharply at 30 by 20 print sizes (as long as I stay under ISO 800). RAW images at low ISO will print tack sharp to 36×24 easily. When paired with the new Sony 16-50mm 2.8 lens (see separate review for this terrific lens), takes some of the best pictures this side of a FF pro camera) – if you stay to ISO 800 and under. The one Achilles heel of this camera is low light noise, but with flash, I mostly avoid shooting at anything over ISO 1600, so this weakness is really rendered a moot point. For those shooting in the virtual dark, see body text for comments (and confessions).

    And for those curious about the cryptic header (that this isn’t a DSLR), it is a DSLT – meaning that a fixed translucent mirror that doesn’t move replaces the standard SLR mirror that has to flop in and out of position in front of the sensor. That design difference is the key to the camera’s unique strengths (and its weaknesses in the minds of many purists). However, that single design difference allows the much faster and more accurate phase detection autofocus system to be working all the time, including while shooting movies (something no other DSLR can do), and thus gives you full time live view, much faster hi-speed shooting, and a lighter body, but also requires an electronic (non-optical) viewfinder, and with a modest loss of light to the sensor (with some attendant noise penalty). The key issue is whether that balance of pluses and minuses works for you . . . . but for most people looking for the best possible still photography and video, this is, at least in IMHO, a truly brilliant stroke that in one fell swoop removes some of the chronic limitations of the classic DSLR environs. There are a few downsides, but with HUGE upsides. Whether its mix of features works for you might depend on what and where you shoot . . . .

    Pros:

    1) Best viewfinder in the sub-frame world (2.4 million dot OLED), as bright as any full frame viewfinder, and with far more useful information. Once you’ve used it, you may not be able to go back. Paradigm changing – once you see what you can do creatively with this new tool, optical viewfinders seem primitive and confining.
    2) Class leading 24 megapixel resolution (at low to medium ISO, yields remarkably detailed images, esp in RAW).
    3) Many useful shooting modes including panorama and high dynamic range modes (but see cons on panorama mode). Intuitive and yet deep & customizable operating system. But can be put in simple AUTO and AUTO+ modes for the less technical.
    4) Full-time live view system and full time phase detection AF for both stills and movies – FAR better than the clunky live view systems ‘tacked on’ in traditional DSLRs, and the contrast detection DLSRs have to use with mirror-lockup and movie shooting.
    5) Class-leading video resolution (1080 at 60p) with as good video capabilities as any camcorder. Takes as good or better video than any DSLR if shooting in 60p, and with option to use either viewfinder or LCD for framing video – something no other DSLR can do.
    6) Intuitive and well thought-out ergonomics.
    7) Fast and responsive operation. Fastest continuous shooting in class (10 frames per second). Fast focusing, decent menu speed (improved w/ new firmware)
    8) Excellent image stabilization system (and no more sensor overheating from the IS that plagued the Sony A55!).
    9) In-camera GPS (can be defeated).
    10) Decent battery life (significant battery upgrade from the Alpha 55) given that EVF sucks down a lot of battery.
    11) Best features/price ratio in the middle to high-end consumer/prosumer model DSLR group.
    12) Easy access to any Minolta lens and a decent selection of Sony lenses for reasonable money, particularly a superb new 16-50 mm 2.8 lens (see separate review).
    13) Ability to remove virtually all CA, distortion, and vignetting in increasing number of Sony lens (firmware-based). When used with the new 16-50mm 2.8 lens, produces very sharp images, w/out any visible classic optical distortions (CA, vignetting, barrel distortion, etc).

    Firmware correction of lens optical aberrations has to be one of most under-appreciated but valuable features of this new camera’s operating system. These corrections work with many popular Sony lenses (now available for virtually all the Sony kit and telephoto zooms and most Sony primes), w/ more included in future firmware (wish Sony would make that full…
