That one's for LiveView... not sure what it does exactly, something to do with AF in LV mode.
To save you the trouble, there's also a third button on the top plate, but I have absolutely no idea what's it for :)

Heck 14mp is better than Canon's 12mp and its got a swivel screen. If priced about the same as Canon's new Rebel I think Sony can be picking up a whole lot new shooters this year. I'll hold off judgment on the noise till I see it. Who knows, maybe 300 could be better for street photography with higher iso picture quality and the 350 would be good for people who want to get into landscape or studio shooting.

Probably Live-View (third-button, already mentioned)... I would not be surprised if there was no discernible difference... MAYBE a different pipeline to accommodate the different sensor, as I doubt it is the same sensor as the A200. Perhaps the sensor is significantly better than the A200? New sensor, pipeline, and live-view are enough to make a new model.

An this (BIG Pipe-Dream). MAYBE the A350 is the FF everyone has been waiting for? HIGHLY doubtful, but that would account for the 14.2MP (even Sony knows that this generation of consumers knows about the MP smoke).

I am still reeling about the lack of A900...

Makes me sad...

Also, the SSS switch, Fn button, and AF selector pad are all moved over to the right on the "A300" to allow more room for the screen.

Yes it is understandable. Some of us may not like it but that's the fact; most potential buyers are interested in as much MP as possible.

Even i have found something positive in it; sony will have some experiences in noise reduction that may after all be useful knowledge for a900 .. they will need this kind of experience

I wonder if they will update the kit lens to a better design; current one is pretty old. Canon's new 18-55 IS kit is apparently extremely sharp, sharper than many of their L lenses.

Wow. Wouldn't that be the something! Even something like 1.3x would be a welcome change :)

Hopefully, it will be more than that. I want a real alternative to the A700 (which is a tad too expensive for my taste and needs). If what these cameras (and especially A350) bring above A200 is just Live-View (and more noise on the 14mp sensor), then... it's not enough for me :(


I think we're all getting a bit spoiled if we can't find a camera to suit us when we'll soon have FOUR DSLRs at $1299 USD or less. That being said, wonder if there'll be an A500??

The A350 is better than Canon 450D (better LV, more MPx, better noise and AF)
The A350 is better than Niko D80 (LV, more MPx, better noise and AF)
The A350 is better than K20D (better LV, same MPx, better noise and AF)

Worthy speculations though! Crossing my fingers is what I'm counting on!
-Yes sir, it has a 12mp CMOS sensor, ISO6400 capability, 11 point autofocus, HD capability, Live-view, SSS, one of the most technologically advanced...-Great, and how do you load the film?
