Sony A58 DSLR as my backup camera

Great electronics for the budget minded, but not quite as good as my Canon 70d

I used this camera as my primary camera for a long time. Initially I used for photography and it was a great fit. Then I started getting into video more and it still functioned for that, albeit not as well as I would have hoped. I continually pined for a Canon and eventually was lucky enough to buy one used, and this camera was suddenly used as a backup camera and now spends most of it’s time in retirement.

The camera was nice, and took great pictures and video, especially when you paired it with a quality lens. Speaking about glass, one of the cooler aspects of this camera is you can buy old Minolta lenses on ebay for cheap and they mount right up due to sharing the same A mount. This will save you loads of money and allow you to buy a ton of nifty old lenses.
