Hands-on with the Sony A350

Sony A350

2.7-inch live view can be tilted up & down
Recently, I had get chance to hands on Sony A350 at Sony Centre in East Coast Mall.
The main attraction of the a350 given me is the 2.7-inch live view LCD which can tilted up or down with new "Quick AF Live View" technology.

Quick AF Live View System
What is "Quick AF Live View System"? Actually, it is designed using two sensor. The Sony was added one more Image Sensor for Live View, so you can frame photos on the camera's LCD without sacrificing auto-focusing speed common to other live view systems. When i was using live view mode to auto focus, it is fast and quick responsive, the AF speed just like see from viewfinder and without focus delay. The live view AF is really much more better on my Canon 40D(phase detect, mirror up) and Nikon D3, D300, Canon 450D(contrast detect AF).
Sony A350 Features:
14.2 Megapixel
18-70 f3.5-4.5 kit lens
9-point AF with center cross
ISO 100-3200
Image Stabilization
2.5 fps burst shooting
2-way tilt 2.7-inch LCD
The price of Sony A350 kit with a DT 18-70mm f3.5-5.6 standard zoom lens is offer only RM2,990. It is affordble and worth for who is the first-time DSLR users.
