Digital Photography/Choosing a DSLR camera


I want to buy Sony A57 or A55 dslr with full featured remote RMT-DSLR2. Is there any good option available in other brand with same features like Sony A57/A55, specially full featured remote?

Hi Rupesh

The A55 is a discontinued model and i would not advise buying the same.

There are too many feature differences and not enough price difference to justify buying an A55. Other brands would hardly offer the features offered in the Sony A57, especially the full featured remote.

You could look at the Sony A37 as another option, as there are only the following differences:

7 FPS vs 12 FPS
Small Body vs Big Body
2.6" (Up & Down) vs 3" (Fully Articulate) LCD
230K dot vs 921K dot LCD
450 shots vs 550 shots battery
No Wireless Remote vs Wireless Remote Compatible

If the above features do not matter to you, the A37 would be an exceptional Value for money, especially considering the recent Rs.5000/- price drop.

Please feel free to get in touch in case of any further queries.
