Sony Alpha DSLR-A330

Camera Labs
1 September 2009
  • Summary: Sony’s Alpha A330 sits in the middle of three models in the company’s consumer DSLR range, featuring 10.2 Megapixel resolution, built-in image stabilisation which works with any lens you attach, a quick Live View system and vertically-tilting screen. It’s a fair specification, although one which shares a great deal with its predecessor, the Alpha A300 – indeed as we mentioned at the start of this review, the internal specification is almost identical, with most of the...
  • Pros: Built-in IS which works with any lens., Quick and fuss-free Live View., Vertically-tilting monitor., Beginner-friendly user interface.
  • Cons: More noise than rivals at high ISOs., Slow continuous shooting., No movie mode., Body shape may not be to all tastes.

Sony Alpha DSLR-A330 Review

Digitaltrends
9 June 2009
  • Excerpt: We hoped the new Olympus E-620 would give Canon and Nikon a modicum of competition in the cut-throat DSLR arena, but no such luck—the camera simply didn’t measure up. Another week, another new model, but this time Sony’s entering the ring. The company will be introducing a trio of new models soon and we got our hands on the middle child, a 10.2-megapixel edition with built-in sensor shift stabilization, a 2.7-inch moveable screen and a Live View we actually like using .
  • Pros: Affordable 10.2MP DSLR with built-in IS, Live View
  • Cons: Fewer FPS than competitors

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: 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, this model is not enough of an upgrade to entice existing owners.

  • Summary: 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.

  • Summary: The Sony Alpha DSLR-A330 is a solid entry-level dSLR that will surely have its fans, but unless you really want Live View its cheaper sibling, the A230, is a better deal.
  • Pros: Fast Live View AF and single-shot performance, Tiltable LCD, Dual card slots, Relatively simple, straightforward operation, Built-in wireless flash and image stabilisation, Helpful SteadyShot indicator
