  • Excerpt: I bought this camera with the kit lens when it was first introduced, I wanted an NEX mount to use strictly with my legacy lenses. I have nothing but good things to say about this camera especially since I have never been a Sony fan, the kit lens was a pleasant surprise and focus peeking with legacies is perfect, the pics are sharp with good color. Contrary to popular criticism about the EVF and 230K screen I find them quite adequate. Now I'm gunning for a 7R.

Nice camera, takes good pictures with the official Sony ...

  • Summary: Nice camera, takes good pictures with the official Sony lens. Sony alpha compatible lenses run over $300 each. I wish I would have spent the extra $50-$100 on a Canon Rebel T3i or Nikon D3200 as lenses for those are much cheaper.

seems incomplete

  • Summary: i recently saw the preview video it seem interesting. And it seems not to target the semi pro and pro photographers, with that said am disappointed about not having a full tilt-able screen for self portraits. and the controls don't seem friendly enough. but it looks like a really good start to something much better...

  • Summary: I bought this because of all the rave reviews but I was disappointed after using it and checking out its features. It seems pretty low end, which it is, so no surprise there. And like the Canon T3 there is no dust remover system which I didn't realize till I checked it out. I also didn't care for controls and general feel of the camera. I decided to put the money towards a better camera. All of the lenses are pricey for this sony camera.

Camera Bag sent is not the same as Advertised

Michael J.G. "Michael J. Ga.", Amazon

  • 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.
