"Great, until the shutter button fell off!!"3.0 starson by BPHW
Pros: I have been an avid Nikon user but decided to give Sony a shot. I enjoyed the ease of the action photography the a550 possesses. The a550 is very user friendly and I would have recommended this camera to a beginner to intermediate photographer
Cons: The a550 is entirely plastic. The shutter button fell off the camera 30 minutes in to it's first use. The a550 has potential but the poor quality of its' manufacturing forces me to recommend against this purchase.
