'The A550's viewfinder doesn't compare particularly well, though. '
'Tilting 3-inch LCD.'
'poor colour accuracy and over-saturation'
'Overall, the Sony A550 and A500 look like good camera designs with some interesting innovations that take advantage of the serious CPU power of Sony's processing chips. '
'robust semi-professional feel'
'top LCD info panel'
'The SD15's back plate layout looks similarly sparse at first glance, with quizzically small buttons that seem dwarfed by its frame.'
'Pros Strong all-round performance'
'The Sony A500's grip is a little odd.'
'Coupled with their BIONZ image processor, the A500 and A550 are optimized for low-light performance and boast a range of up to 12800 ISO.
'The A500's performance is quite robust, with power on to first shot running around 5/10 of a second.'
'barely useful Picture Project RAW processing software'
'One bit of bad news on the D40x flash – the maximum flash sync speed is down to 1/200 th of a second'
'the D40x lacks some of the nice features of other cameras in this class, such as dust reduction, depth-of-field preview, and more than 3 focus points.'
'The D40x's only downsides will seem minor to most inexperienced digital SLR users.'
