Sony A3000 - cheap and versatile camera

Antonio, B&H Photo
4 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: I bought the Sony A3000 six months ago, and I'm using it with the 18-55mm kit lens and also bought a couple of adapters MD to NEX, to use the camera with legacy Minolta MD mount glass: - Minolta MD 50mm F2 - Minolta MD Tele Rokkor 135mm F3.5 - Sigma Zoom ßII 60-200mm F4-5.6 MD mount With Focus peaking and magnification, it's quite easy to obtain fantastic images taking advantage from high quality glass of the "old" Minolta and Sigma lenses.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality

Good transitional from a point and shoot

  • Summary: I haven't had a lot of time to familiarize myself ithe camera but will tell you the pro's; the camera is lightweight; it came with everything I needed to get started. Is easy to use in auto mode. (That's all I've done so far). I have not uploaded my pics yet so can't tell you about picture quality but it seems to focus in well.

isvana, DP Review

  • Excerpt: DPR says the A3000 "feels cheap". Well, it certainly is cheap. Feels lightweight. Even ye olde NEX menu system has a certain charm about it (simply put you want to avoid going there - set up the custom button instead). But it handles nicely (larger body, lighter weight). Pros: Price Simple (ish) Low weight Good grip (balances nicely with Good sensor performance Cons: EVF and back LCD are indeed low res / low rent but otherwise perfectly functional Fill flash only unless...

good for photographing art. slightly large for all around use.

  • Summary: The camera is performing as expected. However I bought this camera with a specific purpose in mind (photographing art) I feel that the access to some of the settings is not entirely intuitive. I am very happy with the image quality though. I will be purchasing a different lens in the future to improve upon what I can get. But that would likely be the case no matter what camera I purchased.

Sony Alpha a30000 Digital Camera

Bogeyguy, B&H Photo
13 January 2015
  • Excerpt: I purchased this camera recently as a replacement for my Alpha 100 which is dying a slow but certain death. I wasn't sure that I made the correct purchase when I ordered the camera since I did it on the spur of the moment in order to get a rebate being offered. I was quite surprised when the camera arrived right on schedule from BH Photo ( free shipping). I thought I was down sizing to a degree but this was only true in the size of the compactness of the camera.

Best valued MILC on the market

AFragmentOfYourImagination, B&H Photo
12 December 2014
  • Excerpt: The Sony a3000 is a top quality current-gen entry-level MILC. The overall product quality is marred by Wireless remote compatibility restrictions, the lack of 4K/Ultra HD video support and a sub-par LCD screen. Outweighing the flaws, this product boasts 20.1 MP still image quality and a functionable UI for an unbeatable price.
  • Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Quiet
  • Cons: Small LCD Screen
