If you’re a Sony NEX fan you may want to check out the Sony ECMSST1 microphone for better video sound quality, it’s currently being offered at $93.00 instead of the usual $123.00.  It comes with the important wind screen too.  I’ve noticed you can get a Sony A230 DSLR with 18-55mm kit lens refurbished for $299.95!!  This camera and lens would be perfect for a person that wants to step up to a good DSLR, but is short on cash. I wouldn’t be afraid of using that camera for a paying job, the camera model is the least of your worries when you show up for a shoot.  To make great pictures, the easiest part is to simply be familiar with your camera, whether new or old.

I’d like to point out a few camera accessories items as a general service to readers; the $156.62 NEX LAEA1 lens adapter is priced much less from B&H photo than it is at Sonystyle.com, I’ll be getting one of these for testing some alpha mount lenses on the NEX system starting later in the year.  Also on my list (and recommended gear page) are used Sony 20mm lenses for $479.95, that’s about $120 off the retail price.
