Sony Alpha A350


Sony's latest pro-sumer digital SLR offers 14.2 megapixels and full AF in live view mode

The Sony Alpha A350 is a superb camera, but anyone who was expecting a full professional DSLR like the A700 will be disappointed. Instead you get an A200 with the addition of live view and a massive 14.2-megapixel sensor. The live view system with...

Sony Alpha 350 digital camera


Sony has marched on with its Alpha range of DSLRs introducing what now seems to be a full set of cameras from the budget to the top, enthusiast, market with the Alpha 200, Alpha 300, Alpha 350 and of course the Alpha 700; the A350 marks the mid-point...

Excellent specification for price, great image quality, Super Steady Shot, Anti Dust system, Eye Start, D-Range Optimiser, ergonomics

LCD cannot be swivelled back into the body (for protection)

The Sony Alpha 350 is the step-up model from the Alpha 200, itself the replacement for the original Alpha 100 tested here in August 2006. Significant improvements have been meted out and there is some streamlining in terms of controls as well. However,...

Sony A350 review


It may have arrived late to the DSLR party, but Sony's making up for lost time

Plenty of features ; Takes some great pictures ; Impressive price

Shoddy lens ; Confusing to handle

Sony has built this camera to a price and that’s a shame as it’s capable of some stunning images. If you can ignore the build quality and get your head around all those buttons, switches and sliders, then it’s great. Shame about the Sony kit lens though!

Sony Alpha 350 digital SLR review


After making a rather slow start in the lucrative digital SLR market with the original Alpha 100, Sony has recently announced a flurry of new models. The latest of these is the mid-range Sony Alpha 350, a 14.2Mp model, which is one of the maker's first...

On the plus side, Sony's Alpha 350 shows great image quality, an effective antishake system, a good build and a handy pull-out LCD monitor. However, we weren't so impressed with its ergonomics, its poor layout of controls and tunnel-like viewfinder....

Sony DSLR-A350X Digital Camera Review


With a remarkably high-resolution 14.2 effective megapixel APS-C CCD sensor, the Sony A350X SLR captures lifelike images with depth and clarity. Sony's advanced BIONZ image processing engine optimises the operation of the CCD sensor and powers the...

To prevent dust getting into the camera when changing lenses, the A350X features an anti-dust coating on the CCD sensor which vibrates when the camera is turned off to dislodge any dust that may have settled there.

Sony A350 & 18-70mm zoom


14.2MP digital SLR with 3x zoom kit lens, built-in image stabilisation, Live View with autofocus and folding 2.7-inch display. The good Live View framing on SLRs has been a mixed bag – some feel nearly as sluggish as old-fashioned manual focusing. The...

The geeky A350 won’t win any beauty contests but the Live View is great and images are solid. You could even do your wallet a favour and step down to the near-identical A300: it has a perfectly respectable 10MP sensor, slightly faster burst shooting...

Sony A350


Offering a 10.2 megapixel and 14.2-megapixel resolution respectively, we got our hands on the A350

At the end of the day, the A350 is a great entry-level DSLR that can easily compete with the more established brands. While the lack of one or two otherwise standard SLR features would annoy the purist, it’s the perfect camera for anyone looking to...

Sony Alpha A350


Sony doesn't do things by halves and the A350 proves it. The most feature-laden DSLR around for the money

Stuffed with features / Superb value

Ugly / Slow burst rate

. It has in-body image stabilisation, effectively making every lens you put on it about two stops faster. It’s a compelling feature and one that’s made the Alpha range very popular

Sony A350 DSLR review


We review the Sony Alpha series DSLR-A350 - a mid-range DSLR with a 14.2 megapixel sensor and perhaps the best Live View system around

While the A350 has an entirely usable Live View mode when compared to rival offerings, the high price and mixed performance is difficult to ignore.
