      I have been looking for a feature rich digital SLR camera but I am very conscious on the price. Checking out the entry level digital SLR camera Sony Alpha A200 really didn’t disappoint me. Currently available with a price tag of USD500, the A200 come with a 10.2 Megapixels CCD which will make your pictures taken crispy clear and can be magnified many times on your pc with superb picture details.

      Despite the fact that the A200 has plastic coverings around its body,it does has an inner metal frame that gives you a solid feel to make you feel that you are paying something worth for your money. One thing I would like to touch is the comfortable right hand grip that is designed into this camera. It is perfectly designed ergonomically for our


      fingers and thumbs in holding the camera and ensure that you won’t slip the camera while holding it.

      Another feature that I love is the lens metal mount that come with this camera. You don’t have to worry on the wear and tear in the lens mount while taking off your lens as the lens mount has gone through a 10,000 times quality test in taking and mounting off the lens. Keep in mind too that the A200 is can be used with lots of Minolta DSLR lens unit as Sony has bought over the DSLR business from Konica Minolta. SO it means that you can use the A200 with more than the 20 plus Sony available lenses in the market.

      Taking blur pictures especially in low light condition or with a telephoto lens will be ...


      • a thing of the past as the A200 is equipped with an image stabilization system that compensate the small vibrations caused by your hand. This same image stabliziation system also help in removing dust from the low pass filter attached to the CCD unit as it will shake off dust when the camera is powered off. Together with the statically charged filter, this operation will do wonder in removing the ever prolific dust problem in a DSLR camera.

        Unlike its predecessor, you no longer have to pop up the A200’s flash unit as it is now controlled electronically by the microprocessor of the camera. You can also use the flash unit as an AF assist lamp which help the camera to focus more precisely by sending out a series of light

        flashes to your targeted object.

        If you have already bought the A200, I have a good tip for you. To get good pictures quality with the A200, keep your ISO sensitivity setting to the low side. As noise reduction is at the lowest level in this setting, you will get a sharper pictures out of your camera.

        Battery life is commendable too as you can snap up to 750 shots with the NP-FM500H battery before recharging. You can also get to know how much battery life is remaining on the battery with reference to the readout in the camera.

        All in all, the A200 is a great entry level DSLR camera for both beginners and enthusiasts as its performance is quite decent with razor sharp and crispy clear photos being output by the camera.
