  1. I have a Sony a230 and I'm starting to work with photography. I have a 50mm f1.7 and I pretend to buy a 55-200 Sam. What is better to me, buying this a37 and use all my lenses or buy a t5i, sell everything I have and slowly buy a 50mm and everything again?

  2. Hello, I'm having a hard time adjusting the auto focus for photos in manual mode and others .. it seems like for photos it does not adjust the auto focus by just pressing the AF button or the shooter button to focus. In video mode it focuses auto! with the approach of the object. In manual mode is it normal to have a processing delay after capture?

  3. Hi John, I am getting started at this area of filming. Is the sony a37 good enough for filming a wedding or a birthay? Or this camera does not do a good job if we compare to other recent cameras. There is a friend of mine who wants to sell his a37 but I got amazed with the new camcorder Canon vixia hf r700, which is better in your opinion? A37 has a 60i full hd and the canon has a 60p full hd.

  4. hi John need help in buying I am looking for a camera for learning photography so I have a choice between Sony A37, Nikon D3100 and Canon Rebel t3i or Canon 1100d all of them are in range of $250-$280

  5. Hi! I have a Sony a37 with f1.8/50mm lens and I love it. I have this camera for over 2 years now and just barely getting serious with it. I have no problems taking pictures outdoor when it's a cloudy day. But when it's sunny I do not know which angles or settings to set at. Well the only setting I change is the exposure and aperture. The ISO and WB I just leave them on auto. Also my lens and body I leave them on autofocus. I really appreciate it if you could give me some advice and or tips. Thank you!

  6. Thanks John very useful I purchased this camera but find it very difficult to read the instruction as the font is very small.

    What is the best mode for family portraits? Look forward to your comments.

  7. Hello John!  Your reviews are really fantastic.  I've seen many of them.  I really need your opinion for a camera on a budget to take photos of my 2 year old and 10 month old.  I'm using a Sony DSC-HX10V which I like but shows it's weakness when I try to crop.  Trying to decide between the Sony A3000, Sony SLT-A37, Canon EOS-M or Canon T3i.  Love the blurred background effect.  Please help and tell me why?  Mostly will be taking portrait shots of my baby girls.  Thank you!!!! Hope you are well. 

  8. Hey! Thanks for the review! My a37 when I shot on t7 mode only take 7 photos or less, I have a 16gb class 4 SD Card so this is the problem ?

    Thanks again!
    Excelente video!
