Great start mate. On the auto setting most cameras seem to overexpose in bright light and when taking close up shots of say flowers. The end result is that they burn off some detail. If this shot was a bit darker the detail would show up.

I normally correct this in post production with Photoshop or the like. A quick fix is to set the camera to underexpose usually an AV setting button.

I know the camera is new and it has a huge instruction book but make this the first thing you look up and find out how to do as it will effect most shots you take on the auto setting

Nice one, looking forward to seeing the results. A word of caution it has a very large tele lens on it which at the top end needs a lot of support otherwise you will get the dreaded camera shake

Hi Dodge, in many respects the answer to your question is possibly. Sony are fairly new to the camera market in respect of the brand leaders who have been producing high end cameras for over 40 years.

I would recommend both Canon and Nikon without hesitation as both brands have a reputation for producing exceptional cameras, even at the entry level.

As ever try a Sony out, explain what you want to achieve with the camera, both now and in the future and hopefully an informed sales person will give you the answers

I use apples Aperture on my iMac it doesn't do everything you can do with photoshop though it isn't bad for enhancing and touching up. For further editing such as layers copying and pasting etc i use Gimp which is a free download.
I also still have the view NX 2 installed, Yes it is a bit basic but good software and all i used before getting my IMac. With most shots you only need to crop tweak the sharpness contrast saturation and shadowing and you can do this easily with view nx
