Camera Bag sent is not the same as Advertised

Michael J.G. "Michael J. Ga.", Amazon
25 June 2014
  • Summary: The Camer Bag is smaller than the one advertised. The one shown on Amazon looks bigger and has an orange bird? The one I received has white letter wording saying Digpro. I would like the camera bag advertised or a credit. The case you sent me is also very flimsy. Everything else seems to be okay. Disappointed in the case you sent.

  • Excerpt: This is Sony's entry level camera which seems to have more presence in Latin America than the US.  It takes very good pictures but isn't the uber camera that the A6000 is, but at half the price, that's not to be expected.  It is, however, the camera you can buy anywhere, including every Radio Shack in Nicaragua.

  • Excerpt: So, I took my a3000 out for about an hour of shooting. I won't make this a full-fledged review, just a few major points and one major issue. I just got mine delivered yesterday, so haven't spent much time getting to know each other. (yet). First, I've not ever used a translucent mirror camera before. So, having no optical viewfinder is driving me crazy on a harsh/overcast day.

Not the solution I had hoped for

Marilyn Wendler, Amazon
27 February 2014
  • Summary: I have no complaint with the quality or utility of this camera, but it hasn't met my needs the way my little point n shoot does. The increase in quality is evident in some photos, but the cumbersome carry and responsiveness are drawbacks. I am not thrilled with Sony requirement to use Play Memories to download pix. I continue to play and learn, but in retrospect I most likely would not have made this purchase.

Camera is good.

  • Summary: However, the bag it too small. Obviously not for this model. Extra battery will charge to only 90%, and will discharge in 20 min. I just did through it in to the river . . .

Great for the price but lacks for video

Timothy McGuire, Amazon
10 December 2013
  • Summary: The A3000 is definitely a step forward from the smaller NEX bodies and outperforms them in some aspects including response. In terms of video quality I can confirm what another reviewer referred to as "fixed patter noise" to be an issue. It's most visible in dark areas or when a shot is out of focus. The video also has more artifacts than the NEX or alpha cameras.

The Good and the Bad

Rick Bennette "Rick Bennette", Amazon
15 September 2013
  • Summary: I won't go into all the features because you can find that information elsewhere. Upon picking up the camera, the first thing I liked was the feel. It's the perfect sized travel camera for someone used to a bigger DSLR while having a comfortable, deep recessed, rubberized grip. The included 18-55 zoom feels mechanically solid for a kit lens, and it's also fairly sharp corner to corner. There's very little geometric distortion or chromatic aberration.

  • Excerpt: So ATLienMood, you often "review" products that haven't come out yet? Thanks for skewering the ratings with your inane blathering.
