… and impressions. But not that many impressions in fact. Once I get comfortable with a camera’s performance and output, I promptly leave the “camera testing mode” and fall back into my usual photography. All that I can say is that if I still discover little things about the A58 now and then, overall its operation has become seamless, and I can concentrate on the pictures I want to make.
I’m still in this phase with the camera when you pick it up and handle it just because you enjoy its feel in the hand. Playing with menus, messing up with buttons and settings. I leave in on late into the night and shoot stupid stuff like coffee mugs or my own toes, just to judge the high ISO performance. I’ll spare you the sight of my feet, but here’s my coffee table at ISO 3200 in terribly dim lighting.
In the morning I was able to bribe my kid into posing for me. She immediately turned the Elite Model switch on, which is pretty funny for a not quite 5 year old 😉
So now that all reservations about IQ of the sensor are put aside, I must repeat that the A58 isn’t the pitiful downgrade fretful A57, 65 and 77 owners make it to be. It’s a small, cute, fun camera to use, and a seriously solid image making machine.
