PopPhoto have reviewed the $800 Sony A350 14.2 Megapixel digital camera.
Here’s what they thought:
“In all, the A350 has impressive features, specs, and price. But it’s still too early to tell whether it will lure serious shooters away from the new Canon EOS Rebel XSi or Pentax K200D. Though we haven’t tested them yet, both promise to control noise well in low light and high ISOs. And the Canon is likely to capture more detail.
As for stealing customers from Sony’s own A700? We doubt it. That camera will continue to attract hard-core shooters. The A350 is aimed at those moving up from a compact or for those who want (and can afford) more from an entry-level DSLR than Sony is offering in its new A300 ($600, estimated street, with 18-70mm f/3.5-5.6 lens), Nikon in its new D60 ($630, street, body only), or Olympus in its new E-420 ($500, estimted street, body only). For such photographers, the A350’s increased image quality and overall performance will be amazing, and the extra features — especially live view — will be reassuringly familiar.”
