The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H10’s unique features are overshadowed by poor flash image quality and iffy face detection. If you’re in the market for a budget superzoom, better, lower-priced options are out there.

Having reviewed several digital SLRs in the past few months, I can summarize the Sony A200 and A350 in two sentences: They’re simple to use and take good pictures, and you don’t have to wade through complicated menus to use them. It’s refreshing.

It looks like Amazon has updated the Sony A350 to “In Stock” and ready to ship. However, this only applies to the standard A350 kit with the 18-70mm lens. The body only and the 2 lens kit still show a release date of April 25.

The Sony Alpha A200 is a compelling entry-level DSLR due to its high image quality and excellent speed of operation. In many ways, this is what new DSLR buyers are looking for. Beginners often want to improve image quality and speed of operation without getting something significantly more complicated then they are used to. The A200 fulfills this role very well as well.

The Sony Alpha A350 is a feature-packed DSLR with a compelling price tag. With high resolution, built-in stabilisation, Live View and a flip-out screen, it ticks the boxes of most new DSLR buyers. Sony’s fuss-free Live View is also arguably the best implementation yet for general consumers.

Anandtech has published an in-depth review of the new Sony A350.
Most of the recent DSLR cameras feature Live View that was pioneered by Olympus, but Sony takes the feature from checklist novelty to a truly useful viewing alternative. This makes the transition easier for point-and-shoot users accustomed to Live View composing with the LCD screen.

Sony’s new titanium body HDR-TG3E is the world’s smallest HD camcorder. The CMOS image sensor with the BIONZ processor provides 1920×1080 Full HD recording. The use of Memory Sticks as recording media made it easier for Sony to go so small. Sony was kind enough to include a 4GB Memory Stick with the camera. The ability to capture 2.3 megapixel images while recording video is a nice addition to an already sweet feature set on the TG3E. [Read more…]
If you have no investment in a DSLR system and you’re looking for an entry-level model, the Sony A200 is a real alternative to the likes of the Nikon D60, Canon EOS 450D and Olympus E-510. It may not be the most exciting camera on paper, with no Live View and “only” a 10 megapixel sensor, but in practice it’s an easy-to-use, solid proposition from which you can confidently upgrade in the future to a more feature-rich model.

I was killing some time in Best Buy tonight and decided to snap a few images on the Sony A200. I took a CF card with me (it’s always a good idea to keep one handy). I certainly wouldn’t recommend overspending on a new DSLR at Best Buy (and never buy accessories there); however, it’s great to get your hands on a new camera before you make your purchase.
The Sony A200 basically handles like the A350, except for the display panel, which doesn’t articulate or feature a Live View function. Otherwise, the A200 has the same dedicated ISO button, which makes switching ISOs a breeze. The A200 has an sensitivity range of ISO 100-3200. Below, I’ve included several samples that cover the entire ISO range. You may download these images at 100% for you personal use and inspection. EXIF is embedded within. If you would prefer a gallery view, which also has an EXIF viewer, go here.
