3rd November 2010 – Got myself a new camera today. Well, it’s not a huge upgrade but at least there is many improvement over the previous model I had. Here I present you the Sony Alpha 580 finally in my hands. The camera cost me at the street price of RM 2350 (with free Sony High Speed Memory Stick).
What I like about the Sony Alpha 580 in comparison to the Sony Alpha 300 doesn’t have?
- 16 Megapixel
- 15 Auto Focus Point
- ISO 25,600
- Sweep Panorama / 3D Sweep Panorama
- Full HD Movie recording
- Accept both Memory Stick and SD Card
Of course there’s two main things which I like about Alpha 300 compare to the new Alpha 580. That is the weight of Alpha 300 which makes the grip/handling more balance than the Alpha 580; and the body build of the Alpha 300 seems tougher than the Alpha 580. The feel I had when holding the Alpha 580 in hand is like holding a Canon EOS 550D but with better grip. Nevertheless, I’m very excited with this purchase and probably would only write a short review if I had the time for it :)
