Sony Alpha A330 review

 

Sony's Alpha 330 aims to make photography easy for first-time digital SLR buyers

Excellent performance and features ; Good handling and build ; Great value

Awkward menu system

The A330 is targeted at the first-time DSLR buyer and it has many features – Live View, on-screen help and Super SteadyShot among them – that will appeal. It will also appeal to more experienced users because it is great value, performs well and...

Sony Alpha DSLR-A330L review

 

Sony's A330 is one of the cheapest DSLRs currently available, particularly if you buy one before 30 January 2010 to take advantage of the £60 cashback scheme.

A solid set of features for the price, but performance and image quality are below average.

Sony Alpha a330 review

 

The Sony Alpha a330 is small and lightweight. The a330 is not an upgrade for owners of the Sony Alpha DSLR-A300. This camera is aimed squarely at the smaller-is-better crowd. Its light weight is quite convenient, but its grip is consequently smaller...

Seeing as the Sony Alpha a330 contains a nearly identical feature set and the same imaging chip as its predecessor, this camera is not worth an upgrade, nor is it hearty enough to take on the latest models from Nikon and Canon. But for consumers new to...

Sony DSLR-A330

 

This camera is quite expensive, being one of the more costly digital cameras in the Sony range but for your money you get a whole mass of features that will make using this camera easy and will give you the quality of photos that any professional...

Overall the Sony DSLR-A330 is an extremely good camera that is highly recommended for those of you who are looking to get images that are of a great quality while still having a camera that is easy to use. The cost of the Sony DSLR-A330 is high but...

Sony DSLR-A330L

 

The camera-manufacturing world is on a creative streak, or is it a war, and there is just no stopping Sony when it comes to producing innovative, off-the-usual products and the Sony DSLR-A330L can attest to that. It is in the same class with the other...

Sony Alpha A330

 

With a petite size and a relatively low price, the 10-megapixel Sony Alpha a330 builds on the strong foundation laid by its predecessor, the a300. Although this camera is clearly intended for the same new to digital SLR crowd that the a300 targeted,...

Sony a330 DSLR

 

While a lot of digital cameras have special features – some much better than others – a DSLR camera can normally take a better image, yes they are bulkier and even if you settle just for a single 18-55mm lens you will not regret it.

It is 12x13x9cm and weights a tad under 800grams. The figure I gave was with an 18-55mm lens fitted and in its most compressed setting. For anyone coming from a standard digital camera there is of course a learning curve. Attach the lens, attach the...

Sony - Alpha A330

 

Sony has come comparatively late to the DSLR race but has already shown that it is to be taken seriously. It's also recognised that there's always a market of adventurous photographers who want to move out ...

Whether or not this is your first venture into DSLR photography, the A330 is a lightweight, quick-to-understand model with superior AF Live View and high quality imagery, which nevertheless suffers from niggling design flaws.

Sony Alpha A330 review

 

Like Malcolm, the Sony Alpha A330 is in the middle. Unlike Frankie Muniz, Matt Grayson thinks that in a couple of years, the Sony will still be working.

Nice design; Good price point; Excellent noise control; Nicely boosted colours
