SonySony Alpha A350 Review : Sony announced a stunning amount of three new models for this year; the A200, A300 and the A350, and we haven't heard the last of Sony for this year. At first glance the three models look a lot alike and have similar specifications. Sony want to give the consumer complete freedom of choice and take this opportunity to cover the most important part of the market, the amateur segment, with a series of DLSR cameras. Quite a luxury in the world of photography land, which usually offers only one model per brand in a certain segment. Sony have started their storming. My first impression of the Sony A350 is an excellent one. It is a pleasant camera, quite well-organized and beautifully designed.

Sony Alpha Review
The Sony Alpha A350 is the most luxurious one of the new trio of D-SLR cameras. Similar to the A300 the Sony Alpha 350 features the vari-angle LCD monitor, which the A200 lacks, as well as Live View. The difference between the Sony A350 and the A300 is the amount of pixels. Its resolution of 14 Megapixels enables the Sony A350 to compete with many of the more expensive competitive cameras. Surprisingly, the Sony A350 has been equipped with a CCD sensor and not the CMOS image sensor. I really would have expected to find the same CMOS inside as that of the Nikon D300. But there is still a possibility of course…

Sony Alpha Memory
As most digital reflex cameras, the Sony Alpha 350 uses a Compact Flash as a storage medium. With the aid of an adapter you can also use the Sony Memory Stick memory card. I can't really see a reason why you would, to be honest. For this review, Sony gave me a CF card of their own brand, while before they used to give me an adapter with a Memory Stick. What is Sony's reason to not only offer the Memory Stick but also the Compact Flash other than the fact that photographers taking the step to the new Sony Alpha 350 will still be able to use their 'old' CF card?

Sony Alpha Quick AF Live View
Even though Live View may have become common in a D-SLR, for Sony it is still relatively new. And not without reason; the way Live View was working so far, wasn't the best solution according to Sony. Mostly because the auto focus was working either too slow or not at all. That's why Sony have invented a new system. Sony have applied a second image sensor just like in several of the earlier Olympus models. But that is as far as the comparison goes. The second sensor is housed inside the prism house. When activating Live View, the sensor tilts a tad, making it 'look at' the matt glass. The main benefit is that the auto focus sensor, placed below the mirror, is able to carry on with its job. And just as fast as if using the optical viewfinder. That is what you call: gaining speed. Therefore Sony have named their system; Quick AF Live View.
