    WoW great work my friend, nice review! I love this camera. I use mine for Time-Lapse movies. You just need this little remote for it to work:

  2. Angelika Heidi says:

    Hi! Have you thought about photo sfxart tricks (google it)? My friend Allan made some very incredible pictures with their video lessons.

  3. PushTheYellowOne says:

    If anyone is wanting this for £270 with lens brand new go to argos they have a really good offer

  4. hey there if u wanna shot lightng try to put our camera on a tripod and the shutter speed to 30 seconds or try bulb mode 😀

  5. Can somebody tell me how I can capture lightning shots with this? Choose “M” manual and i am having problems with what aperture and F stops. Somebody have an idea pls let me know. Thanks…

  6. nice camera abit nicer tha my a330 will have to think about geting one

  7. Dmitriy Ofrikhter says:

    This is a fantastic review. Thank you!

  8. with an lcd screen on the top with your fstops and all, and is a bit larger and better to grip.

  9. a65 is an awsome bet, or i would def go with the a77..a77 has 24.6 megapixels

  10. funboy1231 says:

    Is this camera still good? Is there a newer version of it in the same price range?

  11. TheSumoscorpio says:

    The firmware upgrade is really 4-5 additional styles under the SCN..

  12. photosbylex says:

    I have been using the a55 for a year now mostly doing outdoor action videos. What I found is that the camera over heats and shuts down even when you turn the steady shot off. The lens are rough and jerky. Very hard to get smooth movement out of them. Other then that it does good videos and stills. Being I sometimes carry the camera and lens for miles I find that the weight is not a problem.

  13. Great video and explanation. But I want to share some info about pros and cons of SLT over SLR since people are asking. Ok SLT is faster about 10fps plus better autofocus during video.About no vibration since mirror does not move, no a sturdy camera body does not suffer from that, Mirror in SLT is very sensitive and hard to clean all dirt shows on pictures. Electronic viewfinderis a nightmere try manual focus on a small brunch. I dont believe an OLED will solve the problem.

  14. kasimdoubleG says:

    a55 goes upto 25,000 in a special mode

  15. Rationalific says:

    What exactly do you mean? There is no lens image stabilization. Only body. So any lens will be automatically stabilized because the sensor, itself, moves.

  16. How do you change the Image stabilizer option on this camera ? from camera to lens ?

  17. Josh Moore says:

    Which would you suggest for someone focusing on photos? This, the Nikon D5100 or the Canon T3i?

  18. Hardtsonfire says:

    Thanks for this great review! I’m quite sure this is the camera I’m buying. One thing though. You said something which upset my special allergies – 1080i. It’s the i-part I’m not so keen on. Doesn’t it do 1080p? Interlaced really is from the devil. Oh well, No slow-motion…

  19. sanantonioskating says:

    my dream

  20. tusharkute says:

    pls suggest me which is good A55 or canon 550D.

  21. BramowitchIII says:

    I think no. Unless you need the 10fps or shoot videos in high actions situations. Otherwise buying into the canon system is still superior.

  22. Killzon3commander says:

    I think yes.
    Theres no category in which the t3i is better in my opinion except being 10$ cheaper in my country

  23. Dan Boyington says:

    I got this camera with the standard lens and a 70 – 300 mm lens, but I’m going traveling and need one more like 18 – 200mm, but unsure what make to go for keeping in mind it will connect.

  24. The only thing wrong with the a33/a55 is that the battery life isn’t that great.

  25.  robot


    Great gadget. I could definitely use something like this. Thanks for sharing!

  27. HBHomesforSale says:

    Nice camera for sale! great features!!!

  28. RealEstatePhotograpy says:

    Great Video! I want to try out a crane and get pictures of the exterior from a different angle. Have you ever used on before? If so how did it go?

  29. bfphotography says:

    It’s absolutely not. I personally use HDR photography when taking interior shots, as well as daytime exterior shots. The only time I personally use flash, is for twilight and night exterior shots.
    You are correct in saying that interior flash washes out the scene. That is my opinion as well, and that is why I use HDR. However, you shouldn’t limit yourself either. There are certain scenes that call for the use of flash, and you should learn, and be confident in using it when it’s appropriate.

  30. officeaddict33 says:

    Why is off camera flash needed (the speed light?) I’ve heard some photographers don’t use flash for RE photography because it washes out the scene. Curious for your feedback. Thanks.

  31. David Harley says:

    That is basic, none the less, pretty much spot on., simple and to the point..
    I wish more videos were like this,

  32. thanks bro!
