Sony Alpha DSLR-A330

CNET
29 March 2010
  • 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 stabilization; helpful SteadyShot indicator.
  • Cons: Smallish grip; middling viewfinder; default settings produce suboptimal photos.

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
  • Conclusion: We have no reservations suggesting first-time DSLR buyers pick up the Sony alpha DSLR-A330. It feels right and takes fine, accurate photos with little noise until you hit the outer limits (1600+). We did find the 3x zoom a bit limiting, and you should opt for a more potent lens to complement the kit glass.
  • Pros: Affordable 10.2MP DSLR with built-in IS, Live View
  • Cons: Fewer FPS than competitors

The Sony Alpha a330 is a small and lightweight D-SLR

Good Gear Guide.au
17 May 2010
  • Summary: 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 DSLRs and looking for a camera with advanced features that's easy to tote around, the inexpensive Sony a330 meets its mark. It's very simple to handle - and it offers the added benefit of Live View.
  • Pros: Extremely fast autofocus, hot shoe, dynamic range optimiser works well
  • Cons: Not worth the upgrade for 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.
