Sony A3000

 

A DSLR-style camera for just £350 sounds like a great idea, is it?

Light body, Intelligent control layout familiar from the NEX system

Slow AF system, Poor specification, Sub-standard build quality

Sony is pushing into new territory with the launch of the Sony A3000. But it's risky: this compact system camera lifts the Alpha brand name, but not the

Sony Alpha 3000 review

 

Mix the build of a DSLT and the NEX E-Mount and you get the Alpha 3000

APS-C size sensor ; EVF ; Affordable

Poor screen ; Disappointing EVF

Sony has produced another good camera in the shape of the a3000. It's not hugely exciting, but it's not meant to be. It produces excellent image quality and is available at an enticingly low price point.

Sony Alpha A3000 review

 

Despite being one of the few growing segments of the digital camera market, mirrorless versions of interchangeable-lens cameras still don't get no respect. For one, there's a perception in some quarters that they don't produce the same image quality as...

With an attractive $400 (or less) price, the Sony Alpha A3000 delivers excellent photo quality for the money.

It's slow, with a poor LCD and only slightly better EVF. Plus Sony doesn't include a charger, which may be an issue for some folks.

If you're just looking for better photo quality than a point-and-shoot on a really tight budget, but not better performance, the Sony Alpha A3000 meets that criterion.

Sony Alpha 3000 review

 

While the body is plastic and both the LCD and the viewfinder are well below average in resolution, the Alpha 3000 is still an excellent beginner's camera. The autofocus is speedy, even in challenging conditions. Coupled with the wide sensitivity range...

Price - excellent value for money, Good image quality, Pleasing colour saturation, Good panoramic mode, Good battery life, Info-lithium battery, Focus peaking

Alpha branding could cause confusion, Same size as real Digital SLRs, Low resolution screen, Small viewfinder
