They had great forums. Professional Photographers. Adobe classes. Sony will be starting back up with their classes, in 2011, called Backstage. I can't wait. Last year, I took a course in slide show creations http://www.photodex.com/. The instructor is a huge Nikon fan.
So, i went back to Sony. I looked at some reviews. Here is what they said:
Sony Alpha SLT-A33!
Innovative translucent-mirror technology makes the Sony SLT-A55 one of the fastest digital cameras we've tested, and definitely one of the very fastest SLR cameras. For tighter budgets, the Sony SLT-A33 is a bit slower, but its shooting speed still beats every other digital camera anywhere near its category. Sony's unique tech also means that the Sony A55 and Sony A33 offer exceptional auto focus ability during video recording as well. Throw in special Sony features like sweep panorama and special mult-shot modes for hand holding low light shots and the Sony A55 and Sony A33 represent truly unique value propositions in the digital camera space. For maximum resolution and shooting speed, plus built-in GPS, choose the Sony A55. Give up a little speed and resolution and drop the GPS, though, and you can save upwards of $200 with the Sony A33.
