Sony's A3000 mirrorless/dSLR mashup delivers mixed results

CNET
22 November 2013
  • Summary: If you're just looking for better photo quality than a point-and-shoot on a really tight budget, but not better performance, the Sony Alpha A3000 meets that criterion.
  • Cons: It's slow, with a poor LCD and only slightly better EVF. Plus Sony doesn't include a charger, which may be an issue for some folks.

Sony Alpha 3000

PC Magazine
1 November 2013
  • Conclusion: The mirrorless Sony Alpha 3000 cuts a lot of corners to hit its low $400 asking price, but there are no compromises in image quality.
  • Pros: Inexpensive. SLR-like design. Built-in EVF. Built-in flash. Short shutter lag. Focus peaking. 1080i60 video capture. Excellent image quality at high ISOs.
  • Cons: No eye sensor. Low-resolution EVF and rear LCD. Limited burst shooting.

Sony A3000 Review

What Digital Camera
28 September 2013
  • Summary: We're all in favour of diversity in the digital camera market. The greater the variety of cameras available, the more likely it is that you'll be able to find something that entirely suits your needs. That said however, the Sony A3000 seems to be a niche camera without a niche to fit into.

Sony Alpha 3000 review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • Summary: While the body is plastic and both the LCD and the viewfinder are well below average in resolution, the Alpha 3000 is still an excellent beginner's camera. The autofocus is speedy, even in challenging conditions. Coupled with the wide sensitivity range of ISO 100-16,000, this camera is suited to low-light shooting and more. Up to and including ISO 1600, noise performance is impressive, with the camera striking a great balance between detail and noise.
