SonySony Alpha 55 reflex camera review : Sony presence on the digital SLR market is remarkable. It is remarkable because of its stormy conquest of market shares with a small assortment of DSLR cameras and just as much of a loss of market shares due to the lack of a true evolution in the succeeding models. This peak and decline is followed by a very successful entry to the so-called system camera market with the Sony NEX 5 and NEX 3 cameras. This was a bit of a chaotic beginning, but now promises a lot of potential.

Sony SLT-A55 review
Although the Sony Alpha 55 is not a true DSLR camera in terms of technology, the camera has an equivalent control. The only true differences worth mentioning are the electronic viewfinder and the Translucent Mirror technology. If you already have experience with an Alpha DSLR or competing model, you will be familiar with it immediately. Some buttons have been moved. The ISO button has been moved back and is now part of the multi-control button. The dynamic range has gained more importance as it now has its own button on the top, next to the shutter release button.

Review Sony SLT-A55 - Camera operation
The control of the Sony Alpha 55 is fairly straightforward. Consulting the manual is not necessary in order to take a first shot. The automatic mode makes it very easy, and if you want to take it a step further, you only have to turn the dial to try out an extra-creative setting. The Sony A55 is a true consumer’s camera, user-friendliness and easy control have high priority. The camera is comfortable to handle and due to its compact dimensions, the Sony Alpha 55 can easily be taken with you.

Sony SLT-A55 review and DIWA Labs test
The images are saved onto an SD /Memory Stick Duo format memory card, which are both available at different prices and in a variety of versions. Moreover, the newest generation of SDXC memory card is also supported. The Li-Ion battery is the same one that is used for the Sony NEX cameras. We have had the Sony Alpha 55 camera around for a while after this sample was extensively tested on technical aspects in our DIWA test lab. The practice experiences and technical tests form a balanced test. Our findings can be read in the following Sony SLT-A55 review.
