    Thumbs down [Sony a200] The viewfinder and actual pic. does'nt match.

    Hi, I've a Sony DSLR a200, which I bought for just a couple a weeks ago, my first DSLR camera.
    After a few quick shots I discovered, what I saw in the viewfinder did'nt match the final picture when I playbacked the photos.
    Here are two samples, which maybe can make it more clear for you. View from the viewfinder & The final picture
    I've read that a200 has a 0.83x magnification and is 95 percent accurate, but as you can see on the samples, it seems to be more than 83% or 95%.
    My questions are then, is this something that I've to live with or is it something that can be fixed?

    Grateful for all help, and sorry for my non correct english.

    I am a user of a200 too. Yes, there will be a slight difference. However, from the links provided by you, the pictures do look to be very different. The final image was shifted entirely to the right. If I were you, I will send the camera for servicing or at least for some inspection.

    No, 95% coverage means the final pic would have a bit extra space around the edges. This is common in non-high-end cameras.

    The issue you are describing looks more like an off-centre prism or sensor. Best to send it to your nearest SonyStyle for servicing.
