I like it, and keep it. I bought a few Sony accessories for it, and plan to get more Sony accessories.

Ireally like mine..particularly the Sony LV implemetation over my Oly 510. ( I only have Sony or Oly cams as I love the Oly and Minolta/Sony color space over Canon and Nikon. :-)

Thereare ways to adjust the JPEGS on the A350. The user can adjust the contrast, sharpness, and saturation to get the "P&S" camera "pop-out" colors. Sony is backing off default settings for the mid range cameras to this type default duller, softer color, as the A700 has been criticized in many UK magazines for it's amateurish color defaults compared to it's competiton.

Sony is also very conservative with sharpening these days. Evensome A700users are doing at least +1 on the sharpening.

The A350 seems to have contrast backed down on its JPEGS as well.

Adjusting these settings is pretty simple:

For jpegs,I usesRGB color, and +2 sharpness in camera.I bumoup the contrast one level and add +1 for sautration for color "punch and pop".

Now take this A350 shots and display them on a 15" high res Smartparts or Pandigital digital frame and enjoy!!!

Thank you Anthony and Chrystie, could you post a couple of pictures that you have taken with the adjustment that you told me about but not photoshoped at all. I want to see the results for myself. Thanks a bunch.

Here are some jpegs straight out of the camera of our Botanical Garden and some special visitors that were there this past summer.
