    Everyone seems to be paying the extra $150 and going for the a580. I didn’t see enough reason to do so and I have no regrets. This camera is phenomenal and a great introductory camera with room to grow to intermediate. My girlfriend and I considered the 290/390 but we wanted something that we wouldn’t feel would only last us a year or two because we would feel restricted as we learned photography more and more. The video is a great plus as well and the fact that it doesn’t auto focus really isn’t that big of a deal if you are a photographer 99% of the time and a videographer 1% of the time. It’s there when you need it and manually focusing is actually fun believe it or not. If you are confused about whether to purchase this or the A33/A55 model just because of the AF, do yourself a favor and get the more superior camera in the photography department. With this camera I can walk around and take around 550 shots (in live mode) or 1000 (in viewfinder mode). Considering I like to get on my knees or take pictures of things that are hard to reach I use the swivel LCD A LOT and I’ve never had the camera die on me. Since it’s an alpha you have access to some sweet Minolta lenses at a nice discount compared to Sony’s overpriced products. It will never make sense to me how a lens can cost more than the camera it’s used for but luckily with Minolta lenses you don’t have to worry about that. The camera is sturdy, feels good to hold, the LCD is amazingly clear. WAY more clear than any other brand I have ever gotten a chance to use. The panoramic sweep mode is flipping awesome. I read how people “didn’t get it 4 or 5 times.” They must be either not reading the SIMPLE instructions (aka move left to right) or they are shaking the camera. Anyway, the first time I tried it I was just sitting at my desk and it was a horribly panning job, and WOW it came out with a flawless panoramic view of my wall and desk. HOW IN THE HELL DID YOU DO THAT SONY?? You have no idea the headaches I got from taking panoramic shots on my Olympus that also had an auto mode but NEVER got it right. I had to manually do those and that’s hard to do. Not with this, flawless 99% of the time. I even stood in front of a big bathroom mirror where I would be in the portion of every shot it took while it panned across. It somehow managed to cut me out of every shot and only use the one where I’m pointing the camera right at the center of the mirror. Remarkable technology. Low light is very very good. The Focus check option and depth of field check are God send’s. I mean honestly at this point anyone can be a photographer with this camera. Now all you have to learn is how to frame a shot and use light to your advantage. Buy this camera, you will never regret it, I’m sure it will last me about a decade before I upgrade because what else do I need when I can take this good of pictures? There are a million more things about this camera to rave about but if you can just find one at a store near you and play around with it. You’ll know right away this beauty is for you.

    This is a really great camera. It’s fast, easy to use and takes amazing photos.The camera is loaded with many features found only on more expensive products.
    The price to value ratio is there in a big way. If I had it to do all over I WOULD BUY THIS CAMERA AGAIN

    Serg “Serg” (US) –
    This review is from: Sony A560 14.2 Megapixels DSLR Camera with DT 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 Lens (Black) (Electronics)

    Pros:
    - fast speed shooting – combines 7 shots in 1 in SCN – Hand Held Twilight (“stable night shot”) mode – impressive. I have Sony HX1 which has 6 image burst with processing in 1 (it’s a little faster than a560 though). And I never will buy another camera without this feature because with that you will avoid blurry pictures especially in night time. And you do not have to carry around a tripod.
    - fast focusing, continuous AF – tracking of any object with release button is half pressed, when you point camera at object. Standard AF. The focusing is really fast in any time (day or night). Well at least with coming SAL 1855 Sony 18-55 mm lens. The same thing I liked about Pentax – fast focusing but it does not have a 7 in 1 burst and Sony Images much better than Pentax. I tried Canon Ti1-3, Nikon 3100 and none of them have the same fast focusing;
    - auto HDR mode takes 3 pictures and combine them in one with best contrast and color;
    - pretty true distinguished colors. I liked that very much. In this area A560 bits HX1;
    - high ISO (12800) and low noise (3200-6400) allows you to take a picture in twilight or practically in a night time with ambient light (using auto HDR in P mode or Hand Held Twilight) with pretty decent quality, better than Pentax K-x for example;
    - battery life is ok, and counts mostly not by number of taken pictures but by time when camera is on;
    - video HD 1440×1080 in MP4 is pretty clear, with stable shot on and steady hands you may shoot decent video (I did). It’s about 10 minutes with steady shot on, and about 24 minutes with steady shot off. If to compare with Sony-A580, the last one allows you to take only 14 minutes of video with steady shot off;
    - view finder and live view mode is practical in sunny day. Live view screen is clear and does not slow down AF;
    - there is a shoe for external flash or microphone;
    - 3.5 microphone input;
    - duel SD and MS (memory Stick Pro Due) in built card reader (you have to switch between them manually though);
    - tilted live view screen (90 degrees: up and down);
    - 3D sweep panorama mode;
    - AF Check LV (it’s metering distance to an object, then you press and hold button under lens and when an another object will be in a focus range of the first one you can just “draw” your camera and take pictures within milliseconds). Lets just say you wait for some person and he will pass next to the area where you set a focus and then, as I said, you just “draw”, point and “shoot”. It can be done along with any mode. It reminds me old good SLR.
    - Exposure compensation during a video shooting works best in P and S modes (worse in M and A modes). You can add or reduce brightness while taking a video;
    - Many function buttons on the camera body for easy access;
    - 14 Mp allows you to crop a picture without loosing a considerable picture quality (low grain and very clear picture especially with sufficient light);
    - with stable shot off you can take continuous clip (about 24 min per clip) without camera sensor overheating and as a result of auto shut down;
    - built in filters: Green and Magenta. You can change intensity (from 1 to 9 scale) in this color range;
    - the camera has a power savings setting. So if you would forget to turn it of it will “fall asleep” saving by that your battery.

    Cons:
    - built in filters: Green and Magenta only in AWB (auto white balance mode). For Blue color correction you can use only the color temperature by decreasing one.
    - 7 shots in 1 feature is available only in SCN “stable night shot” mode, and it does not freeze the object movement completely as it could be achieved with Sony Cyber Shot HX1, which has a day and twilight stable shot; A560 – has only twilight stable shot;
    - Portrait mode does not have too much control. You can lock exposure (AEL), set timer or use “Focus check LV”, you can not change ISO, select burst mode, you can not use exposure correction or D-range (DRO or HDR). You can not set center focus if AF in use. Because of all that outdoor picture in portrait mode are subject to light conditions. If it’s too sunny – picture will be overexposed, if you do not use manual focus you may end up with blurry object. I tried that.
    - When you take a picture in direct sun light or use a flash it seems that the color spectra shifted to red zone. A person face can become more yellow and red. My suggestion – use a UV filter.
    - Shooting object against the sun with flash is tricky. I found for my self hard to find right mode and brightness balance. I could finally find setting in P mode to take a person picture against the sun but it’s for certain light condition. Once cloud covered the sun (a bit) the background went overexposed. I suggest use external more powerful flash because the built in flash was set at maximum power and this was not much in help. I used to take a pictures with the same light…
