Camera lens properties

Lens mount

Lens mount

A lens mount is an interface — mechanical and often also electrical — between a photographic camera body and a lens. It is confined to cameras where the body allows interchangeable lenses, most usually the single lens reflex type or any movie camera of 16 mm or higher gauge. Lens mounts are also used to connect optical components in instrumentation that may not involve a camera, such as the modular components used in optical laboratory prototyping which join via C-mount or T-mount elements.

Edition 07/2012 - Unter Sonys Systemkameras ist die Alpha 580 wohl die letzte mit einem Klappspiegel und einem APS-Sensor, wobei die Kamera dank ihrer überzeugenden Leistung trotzdem noch nicht auf das Abstellgleis zu schieben ist. Sie liefert eine tolle Bildqualität und arbeitet zudem mit einer sehr hohen Geschwindigkeit, sodass sie mit neueren Modellen in jedem Fall noch Schritt halten kann.

Edition 09/2011 - Videostar. Beste Spiegelreflexkamera für Videos in Full-HD (1920 x 1080 Pixel). Sehr schnell. Schwachpunkt: Belichtungskorrektur nur in vier Stufen. Monitor bei Sonne und Dämmerlicht mit wenig Kontrast. Besonderheit: HDR-Funktion, verrechnet drei Aufnahmen eines Motivs zu einem optimierten Bild.

Edition 04/2011- Schwer wird es die Alpha 580 trotzdem haben: Die Konkurrenz kommt aus dem eigenen Hause, heißt Alpha 55, ist etwas besser ausgestattet und sogar günstiger, genauso gut und zudem noch einen Tick schneller.

sehr gute Bildqualität
schneller Autofokus im Live Modus
Full HD Videofunktion
hohe Serienbildrate

Super Kamera

+Auflösung ist gut
+wenig Bildrauschen
+nicht Schmutzanfällig (War damit in der Wüste, Gebirge etc pp.)
+gute Bedienbarkeit
+unterstützt Minolta Objektive (viel Auswahl, auch auf dem Occasions Markt)
+Liegt gut in der Hand (brauchte nicht mal den Batteriegriff um das Gewicht der Cam zu erhöhen, für bessere stabilität)

-RAW unterstützung meines erachtens auf Seite der mitgelieferten Tools mangelhaft (habe aber auch keine grosse Ahnung davon)

Nur eine Frage bleibt offen, wieso ist nur der Body der Cam fast 400 .- teurer ? (Ich habe das Kit mit dem 18-55mm und Telezoom)
