Sony Alpha SLT-A37

 

The A37 is a solid entry-level, dSLR-class camera that will serve anyone on a tight budget who's looking for something to shoot active kids and pets.

The ; offers some class-leading performance, along with a solid set of features and respectable photo quality.

The EVF looks dim, and the LCD is on the small side.

A good option if you're looking for something fast with a viewfinder and tilting LCD, the Sony Alpha SLT-A37 is a solid but not outstanding sub-$800 dSLR-style camera.

Compact interchangeable-lens cameras are cute, but sometimes you want the heft of a dSLR-style body, full mode dial, electronic viewfinder, and a lot of direct-access controls. The Sony Alpha SLT-A37, the latest entry-level model in Sony's line of...

Sony A37 Review

 

The Sony A37 is a new entry-level interchangeable lens camera that uses Sony's unique Translucent Mirror Technology to offer high-speed shooting and a smaller body size. The 16.1 megapixel A37 features 7fps burst shooting, full 60/50i AVCHD video with...

The Sony A37 is a compelling entry-level DSLR camera with features, still and video image quality, and overall performance that beat its main rivals. Only the small, low-resolution, non-articulating LCD screen detracts from an otherwise outstanding...

Sony Alpha A37

 

The A37 replaces the A35 and clearly defines Sony's Alpha product lineup. As the lowest in the line, the A37 camera loses out on the burst speed, video quality, and screen resolutions of the more expensive models but does retain a smaller form factor....
