Sony Alpha DSLR SLT A35

True few people will care about such things, but I feel that every once in awhile, I should write about my equipment. I recently bought a new camera. It had been about 3 years since I bought a camera, so I was well past due.

Since the last time I bought a camera Sony had released a new line of camera that replaced the reflex mirror with a transluscent mirror. I was immediately intrigued and when I got my ducks in a row and decided to purchase a camera I decided to give one of these new revolutionary cameras a try. This is what it looks like:








Here is the first picture I ever took with the new camera:




I don’t want to bore you with too many technical details about the new camera, but here are a few:

There are obviously a ton more technical details, but that should cover it for now.
