Sony Alpha SLT-A37 review

 

Does the Sony Alpha SLT-A37 really offers sufficient pro quality?

Ease of use ; Affordable price ; Sharp ; colourful pictures

LCD's lack of flexibility

Sony Alpha A37

 

Sony's been pushing its SLT - or single lens translucent - range for some time now. Although touted as an "entry level" model, the Sony Alpha SLT-A37 has an arm-length list of features - many of which better the nearest big brand DSLR cameras. The A37...

Nippy autofocus, impressive continuous autofocus, affordable, decent image quality

15-point AF system is centrally arranged, build is a little plasticky, electronic viewfinder won't suit all tastes, small LCD screen and light-reflective issues, limited battery life, no 60/50p movie mode

The A37 is a patchwork of other Sony SLT cameras past and present. Its ultimate goal: to be as budget as possible. And it achieves that with bells on.

Sony Alpha 37 review

 

New entry-level DSLT offers 7fps shooting

Clear Zoom function ; EVF useful for reviewing images ; Tilting screen

Limited raw format options ; Very limited in-camera editing ; Low-light focusing tricky

Sony's Alpha a37 is the latest camera to arrive in the company's entry-level DSLT lineup.

Sony SLT-A37 review

 

Anyone considering upgrading from a snapshot camera to a digital SLR may like to consider the user-friendly alternative of Sony's 16.1 megapixel SLT-A37. See all camera reviews.

As this a budget model costing a very reasonable £499 with the 18-55mm standard zoom supplied on test, we don’t get the top plate function window found on semi pro models, but we are provided with a shooting mode dial crammed with 12 manual and...

Sony Alpha 37 review

 

As entry-level cameras go, the Alpha 37 offers a lot of benefits. The array of clever features makes it easy to achieve some stunning results - so long as you have the composition to match. However, the new sensor doesn't seem to have gone far enough...

Sony SLT-A37 review

 

Single Lens Translucent camera handles like a cross between DSLR and DSC

Solid-feel build, tilting LCD back screen, plenty of manual control and automatic digital effects, good value for money with 18-55mm kit lens, sharp colour-rich images straight out of the camera

Some pixel fringing between areas of high contrast, AF sometimes struggles to keep up with faster subjects, LCD could be more flexible still to match the likes of Canon’s EOS 650D

As this a budget model costing a very reasonable £499 with the 18-55mm standard zoom supplied on test, we don’t get the top plate function window found on semi pro models, but we are provided with a shooting mode dial crammed with 12 manual and...
