About Sony Digital Cameras
Sony Digital Cameras
Sony Corporation, which is a Japanese electronics maker based out of Tokyo, is globally well-known for a variety of products. One of its chief products remains its exclusive line of cameras, consisting of both compact point and shoot models, along with digital cameras with interchangeable lens.
History of Sony Digital Cameras
Some of Sony’s earliest digital cameras came into the Cybershot series, a line that still exists to date. These were primarily launched around the mid-1990s. There were also some models that were released around the late 90s, under the name of the Mavica line and this continued till 2003. This series had been popular, but stands discontinued as of now. Cybershot still has a number of lineups such as W, WX, RX, QX and HX.
Sony’s DSLR lineup of cameras was launched in the year 2006, with the release of the Alpha lineup. The very first model in the series was called the Alpha DSLR-A100. The lineup exists even today and Alpha SLT-A68 is the latest release. Another lineup of DSLR cameras is the Sony SLT series.
Popularity of Sony Digital Cameras
In India, Sony has a good share in the camera market. While it lags behind Nikon and Canon, which are the two clear winners in the category, it still offers another great alternative besides these brands.
Sony’s point and shoot compact models, i.e. the Cybershot series is largely popular and shares a very good rapport among buyers. These are largely meant for casual photography and not professionals. Sony also has numerous stores and distributors that sell their models.
Design of Sony Digital Cameras
The design is pretty standard for most cameras in the industry, irrespective of the maker. Sony’s cameras come as point and shoot or DSLR models, as mentioned earlier. Most of the construction is polycarbonate, these days in an effort to make things lighter. However, metal is used in some parts.
The front face, as usual, has the lens in point and shoot models or has space for a lens on a DLSR. The flash is located at one of the top corners. You can find the shoot button, along with some others on the top face. The back portion houses the LCD screen, which varies in size. The buttons are also present on this side.
The lower side always has space for batteries and some connectivity ports. In most cases, the card slot and the one for batteries are under a common lid. Batteries of Ni-MH or LI-ion are supported variations on the model.
Color options for Sony cameras are numerous. However, this applies only to its point and shoot range. DSLR models are largely black in color.
Features of Sony Digital Cameras
Sony offers many features in its compact and DSLR camera models. There are dedicated lineups among the main ones that specifically target the experience level of the photographer. This means that there are separate models mainly meant for beginners, while others may be for the experts.
Sony’s Cybershot makes use of Exmor CMOS sensors and offers varying resolution counts. For lenses, they make use of Song G or Carl Zeiss ones. Some of the cameras also provide extreme zooming capabilities. Videos can also be shot with these models.
For the DSLR models, the cameras support E and A (for mirrorless) mount lenses. Lenses can be used interchangeably, as per the user’s choice. These cameras also make use of the Sony’s Exmor CMOS sensors and the BIONZ image processor.
For connectivity, all cameras have basic USB, HDMI and audio/video options. Some models also offer NFC and Wi-Fi for wireless options. Memory Stick, SHDC and SD cards are largely supported in Sony’s shooters.
