Sony’s Alpha-series has been one of the leading roles in DSLR market. But this time, the company has rejected the traditional DSLR design and instead created a hybrid like a compact camera plus a DSLR. It can offer features such as phase-detection AF during movie recording and extremely fast continuous shooting that mark the technology milestone of DSLR cameras.
Inside the box, you will find a Sony A55 DSLR Camera, a Battery Pack, a Battery Charger, a Data Cable (USB), a Strap, a CD-ROM and a User's Guide.
Let’s go through some of the key features A55 has. It has got 16.2MP resolution, a Sony home-made Exmor HD CMOS which offers at most 25600 ISO. It also brings 1080i Full HD movie capturing in A55, making it the first of all in the Alpha-series to have such function. Sony also introduces the 3D Sweep Panorama function to A55 to incorporate the company’s latest promotion of the technology.
The mirror of A55 is the most significant that makes it a revolutionist of DSLR in the whole market. The mirror in the A55 is semi-transparent. According to Sony, it allows approximately 70% of the light that strikes it straight through to the imaging sensor. The remaining proportion is reflected upwards to a large 15-point phase detection AF array.
Another most obvious change is the high-resolution EVF (100%) in place of an optical finder; and a fully articulated 3-inch 912k dot TruBlack LCD at the back. Both upgrades claim the first for the Sony Alpha line.
Near the LCD on the rear are some control buttons including the Movie button, Fn button and a control ring etc.
At the top of A55, apart from the power and shutter button, it has the the ‘Finder/LCD’ button for you to choose from the two.
The control dial is placed near the menu button at the top right side.
The A55 has a built-in GPS receiver, which can automatically tag photographs with location data. This can be used with Google Maps which is pretty convenient to users when travelling overseas.
In general, the Sony A55 is a powerful, innovative and user-friendly DSLR camera. As a brand new state-of-the-art hi-tech device, it still hasn’t got any competitors at the same level.
Canon has recruited many die-heart fans for its G-series. And after rumoring for a period of time, Canon has finally announced the newest PowerShot G12. In fact, compared to it predecessor, G12 hasn’t got many big changes. Maybe good things don’t worth changing, right? 10MP and optical zoom of 5x are remained unchanged in G12, but the most significant improvement would be the addition of capturing HD movies.
Let’s come to the package box. You’ll find a Canon PowerShot G12 Digital Camera, a Battery Pack, a Battery Charger, a USB cable, an AV Cable, a CD-ROM and a User's Guide.
There is textured rubber on the body of G12 to prevent slipping. An AF-assist LED and optical viewfinder can also be found just above the lens. Right back to the main business, G12 is upgraded to record 720p HD videos under the QuickTime MPEG-4 AVC format. It is the first to own this appealing feature in the G-series. Other major additions include Canon's HS System and Hybrid IS.
G12 has a 2.8-inch PureColor II VA (TFT) 460k dots LCD. It can also be articulated for a wide angle for you to make more challenging pictures.
At the side of G12’s LCD there fills with control buttons. Most of them are self-explanatory by their labels.
On the top you will find three control dials for setting. Two of those are the Mode and ISO. And the ISO control dial is newly adjusted to further suit user’s need. A small LED light nearby will light up showing active settings when in use.
The last of three control dials is for exposure compensation which is placed on the left. The small LED light also comes with it.
The PowerShot G12 features a premium 28mm wide-angle 5x optical zoom lens, allowing users to capture sweeping landscapes and get closer to distant subjects during shooting.
Overall, G12’s upgrades fall to Canon's HS System, 720p HD movie recording and Hybrid IS. And a lot of stunning features are kept in it. However, when shooting HD movies, it can only record up to 29m59s and file size varies. For either G-series users who seek for an upgrade or potential G-series users, it leaves to you whether to pick G12 or not.
