2.0 out of 5 stars Wireless transfer is clunky process
By Mike on July 24, 2017
Pros:
Capable of great photos and feels solid in my hand. Battery lasts a descent among of time.
Android and iOS app available

Cons:
One of the big reasons I bought this camera was its capability to wirelessly transfer photos using NFC. It sounds great on paper but works in a clunky way. The NFC just opens the apps, so you still have to connect to it through wifi. Using wifi, you have to disconnect from home network and connect to camera''s wifi. It doesn't always connect. Sometimes its just faster to transfer the sd card to my computer. As for apps, there are only a few that can be downloaded from Sony to the camera.

Update: It says it doesn't recognize the lens sometimes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sony Alpha a500.
Reviewed in Canada on July 10, 2017
Amazing Camera, totally has exceeded my expectations. The lens that it brings is a generic one, but it does the job fairly well.
Upon further research, I have other lenses in mind to purchase to increase my satisfaction.
The attached pictures were taken with this Camera (had to downsize, as a picture is usually around 20MBs).
Also, the flip mechanism on the display is very useful when taking self-portraits.
