Small package- HUGE punch!
4 April, 2015
I have always loved photography but have never loved the cost of decent equipment (DSLR type). I purchased this camera without much research to be honest. The 16.1 megapixels feature was a major selling factor because it would allow me to print out decent sized, frameable prints (11x17) without sacrificing image quality. This feature also allows for "major" cropping in photos to isolate the image inside the image, again without sacrificing the quality of the shot. As far as point-and-shoot cameras go (in my experience) this Sony is all you need. I've traveled from Mexico to Gatlinburg to plantations in Louisiana with this camera in tow. My wife is 8 months pregnant and we wanted to take some good quality full-term pics. I seriously considered buying a fancy, more professional model DSLR for the photo shoot. I've had this Sony for a couple years now and have been completely satisfied, but seriously doubted it was going to be able to capture the type of quality photos I was looking to capture in this type of setting/shoot. After serious consideration, and a serious lack of funds ;) I decided to use this Sony for the shoot, using the highest resolution available in the camera settings. Results:
Amazing image quality! Perfectly captured the professional feel we were hoping for. I cannot say enough about this camera or how satisfied I've been using it over the past couple of years. It's very user friendly, with just enough extra features for those who want to get the most out of each image. I hope this is helpful for anyone considering this type of camera. Quality pictures come from quality photographers- you don't need to spend $600 for incredible shots!
