Camera News – Hello Sony Alpha 65

I think it’s time to let the cat out of the bag – I’ve got a new camera! But this time, it’s not a replacement of my current one, but a completely unexpected addition because a good friend gave me his old camera kit as a very generous gift. It’s a six-year old Sony SLT-A65 and while I really could not see me using anything bigger than a bridge camera anytime soon, I’m certainly not going to look a gift horse in the mouth – so this will be my first digital camera with interchangeable lenses! The camera is pretty amazing and I even received four great lenses with it, but it won’t completely replace my trusty Canon Powershot SX30 which I still like because of its longer zoom and its lesser weight. That means I’ll be dividing my camera time between Canon and Sony from now on – I’ve been using the A65 for one and a half weeks now and I’ve already snuck a couple of images into the posted photos from it.

Originally I wanted to write a longer article about the camera, but I thought I’d post this short introduction first. There may be more soon about my experiences with my first ‘big’ camera, but fortunately I don’t have to learn everything from scratch since I had been using analogue SLRs before in the 1980s and 1990s! And now back to the regular photo stream :-).
