Sony a57

The Sony Alpha SLT-a57 SLR digital camera is the replacement for the a55 model and uses Translucent Mirror Technology to offer a smaller body size and high-speed shooting.

The Sony a57 is a interchangeable lens camera that features a 16.1 MP APS-C EXMOR HD CMOS sensor, 12fps burst shooting, a high-resolution electronic viewfinder with 100% coverage, full HD video with continuous autofocusing, ISO range of 100-16000, a 3″ tilt LCD screen and Multi-frame Noise Reduction.

Sony a57 reviews:

The Sony A57 is a considerably larger camera and more closely resembles a traditional DSLR than its predecessor A55. In terms of body design the a57 is virtually identical to the a55. More about body and design of Sony a57 as well as many tests of image quality you can find on Sony a57 review from dpreview.com website.

A great Sony a57 review comes from digitalcamerainfo.com website. The autor of this review notes that Sony Alpha A57 features a 15-point phase detection autofocus system with 3 cross-type AF points. Because A57 has a translucent pellicle mirror technology, the camera can utilize phase-detection autofocus even while shooting in live view, recording video or using the electronic viewfinder. The autor of a57 review also says:

The main additions to the A57 are support for AVCHD 1080/60p video recording, 12fps continuous shooting (10fps at full resolution, but with continuous autofocus), Sony’s Superior Auto+ shooting mode, and a new auto portrait framing mode. The additions are welcome, and add to a host of on-camera modes and tools designed to aid beginner shooters.

 

The Sony A57 records full HD video at 50p using the AVCHD 2.0 codec. When a good optic is used the level of detail in video recording is excellent, with AF system immediately bringing subjects into focus. More about this you can read on whatdigitalcamera.com website.

Another short Sony a57 review comes from digital-photography-school.com website. There you can read about some features of Sony a57 and you can see examples of photos taken with different settings.

The Sony A57 produces images of excellent quality. ISO 100-800 is noise-free, while ISO 1600-6400 produces more than acceptable results, and even ISO 12800 and the fastest setting of ISO 16000 are OK for emergency use. More about image quality of Sony A57 you can read on photographyblog.com website. The experts of this website conclude:

 While the A57 may be bigger than the A55 model that it replaces, and it loses its predecessor’s GPS functionality, in most other ways it’s clearly a better camera, so much so that it even competes with the more expensive and very similar A65 model. There’s not too much at all to dislike about the new Sony A57, and we can easily highly recommend it as a very capable and full-featured camera that won’t break the bank.

 

The Sony A57 has a ergonomically-shaped rubberised front grip that is very comfortable and pairs nicely with the neatly curved, rubber-clad rear thumb pad to provide a firm purchase. More about build quality, handling and performance of Sony a57 you can read on techradar.com website. The expert of this website say:

Throw in a fast, highly-accurate full-time Phase Detection AF system and great image quality, and it’s not difficult to see why we have plenty of praise for Sony’s latest innovation.

Sony HX200V lens detail

 

The Sony HX200V offers the impressively broad light sensitivity range option of captures between ISO 100 and ISO 12800. This camera offers an incredibly versatile focal range and handled chromatic aberrations well, with some purple fringing present around the edges of objects in high-contrast situations. You can learn more about image quality if you read the Sony HX200V review from photographyblog.com website. The experts of this website conclude:

 As an all in one with ‘DSLR lite’ style handling that really does offer most, if not all, of what you need – and delivers consistently high image quality – the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX200V takes some beating if a big zoom really is chief among your imaging requirements.

 

Video quality is good in the HX200V. The one touch video button initiates capture promptly. The microphone can be sensitive to wind noise but there is a wind cut feature that may be enabled. More about these things you can find on digitalcamerareview.com.

Sony Alpha NEX-C3 reviews

There are a few reviews of Sony Alpha Nex C-3.

The engadget.com says in his review that Sony Alpha Nex-C3 advantage is that can captures a 720p video, with a good quality but it can’t shoot in 1080p, then it is not full HD.

The 16-megapixel Alpha NEX-C3 builds upon the successes of its predecessor – the NEX-3 – sporting a slimmer body and redesigned APS-C sensor. It also adds a reported 20-percent boost in battery life, improved low light performance, and a slimmer, more attractive design.

In PCmag.com review, the advantages of Sony Alpha Nex-C3 are small dimension (than its predecessor), large APS-C sensor and tilting 3-inch LCD:

 The NEX-C3 is able to deliver D-SLR quality images in a compact body, one that is even smaller than the Olympus PEN E-P3  or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2, but packs a larger sensor than any Micro Four Thirds camera. The NEX-C3 follows the tradition of the NEX-3 as our Editors’ Choice for compact interchangeable lens cameras.

In his Sony Alpha Nex-C3 review, cameralabs.com days that Sony Nex-C3 unique attraction is that is based on the APS-C sensor format, commonly used in DSLR’s and can therefore offer comparable image quality and noise performance:

Given the APS-C sensor concealed within, the NEX-C3 really is a miracle of modern miniaturisation. Measuring 110 x 60 x 33mm and weighing 225 grams with battery and card (but no lens) it’s smaller even than the NEX-5. It measures up well against the Lumix GF3 and, the curviness of the latter apart, with the kit lens attached they are similarly dimensioned. While the Olympus E-PL3 has a slightly thicker body thanks to its built-in stabilisation, the smaller kit lens makes it the least bulky of the three overall.

In conclusion of his NEX-C3 review, pocket-lint.com says:

…the new NEX-C3 compact system camera is more refinement than revolution in comparison with the original NEX-3 of 2010, adding a couple of million extra pixels, better battery performance, fun digital effects filters, and minor control layout changes. None of which make a huge difference. Still, approaching this model afresh, it is a very capable camera in its own right for existing snapshot users looking to up their game, delivering consistently sharp and colourful results.
