Ex Canon Owner. (11:18 PM, October 11, 2012)
Wow, this is so paid for by Canon.


Compare this comparison to the comparison between the T3i and the D5100.

For some reason the A35 and D5100 blow away the T3i in actual
statistics for photography, I am not sure how they could have different
results. The Canon doesn't have a built in motor, the Sony does. The
sony records 1080 in either 60i or 30p. I dare you to actually take a
video with the canon and sony and see which works without having to
build a contraption to focus properly. As for stills, night and day. I
used to have the T1i, but after 1.5 years (out of warranty) and 10,000
shots, it's mainboard blew. Canon would only sell a new one or a fixed
one with 90 days warranty. That is when I swore off Canon. Not the
company they used to be.
