Sony Alpha A200 Digital SLR

 

Is Sony's second entry-level model the best value DSLR on the market?

The Alpha A200 is an important model for Sony, since it is now the entry model for a growing DSLR system. It ticks all the right boxes, with an attractive and easy-to-use design, brisk performance and good picture quality. Its feature set will leave...

Sony DSLR-A200 review

 

This Sony DSLR is up against some serious competition. Is the low price a bargain or a telling sign?

Cheap, but not really well rounded enough to offer good value for money

Sony A200 review

 

Sony's entry-level DSLR is a great camera, but a bit rough around the edges

Great value for money ; Good LCD display ; Plenty of features

Feels cheap ; Awkward handling ; Poor quality lens

The A200 gives you a lot for your money, but it lacks that little ‘spark’ to make it truly desirable. It’s a bit bulky, a bit cheap-feeling and not the best camera to handle. The kit lens isn’t great. The Sony’s a decent, sensible buy, but won’t set...

Best D-SLR entry-level: Sony Alpha 200

 

Easy to use, easy to carry and offered at a very attractive price with its 18-70mm zoom lens, the Sony Alpha 200 is a dream camera for beginners who want to start enjoying all the benefits of D-SLR photography. Its 10.2 megapixel sensor delivers top...

Sony Alpha A200

 

A capable, compact and fully-features SLR that's particularly handy for beginners. Word.

The price. It's amazingly user-friendly too

Sony DSLR-A200W Digital Camera Review

 

Sony's Super SteadyShot optical image stabilisation feature effectively reduces hand-shake, even when using macro or optional lenses; this is particularly useful in poorly lit conditions or if you are shooting whilst moving, such as in a car. Shooting...

The Sony A200 offers fantastic shooting functionality, but the range of 20 interchangeable lenses and lighting systems will really enhance your photography experience. The DSLR-A200W kit includes the digital camera, a standard DT 18-70mm lens and a...

Sony DSLR-A200K Digital Camera Review

 

The Sony DSLR-A200 features High ISO Noise Reduction, to improve the picture quality when shooting at maximum ISO 3200 sensitivity, which is particularly useful when shooting handheld in poorly lit conditions without the flash. The latest BIONZ image...

The DSLR-A200K kit includes the DSLR-A200 digital camera and a DT 18-70mm f3.5-5.6 3.9x zoom lens, for enhanced creative options and control. Sony’s dual anti-dust system protects the camera’s sensor during lens exchange. There are 20 optional...

Sony Alpha 200 Review

 

10.2-megapixels for £450 sounds like great value. Sony is certainly hotting up the budget end of the DSLR market with the Alpha 200.

Great-looking images, good price, ease of use, decent system to buy into

No Live View, menu options restricted, build-quality could be better

The A200 is a great camera for those who haven't invested in a system yet - it's great for photography starters. If the price drops, it will become a very attractive buy.

Sony Alpha A200

 

The Sony Alpha A200 is a 10 megapixel digital SLR Camera from Sony. It features an APS technology that ensures a steady shot at all times. It can take three frames/ second on its continuous shooting mode. It has a 23.6 x 15.8 mm CCD sensor as well as a...

Serious photographers will probably give this the swerve, but as far as entry-level digital SLRs go this Alpha dog cocks its leg at its competitors. Sony Alpha A200 is tagged with Sony and digital camera. Select a tag (Sony, for example) to find...
