BOON FOR BEGINNERS

John Stephens "Claude Balz", Amazon

  • Summary: This camera is excellent for the price. I purchased it specifically because it uses bayonet mounted lenses, so I could use the lenses from an old school film camera no longer operational.

  • Excerpt: My wife has had this camera for about two years now. It's a great entry into the DSLR world and has served us well. It does great outdoors, indoors in high light conditions, and in less light (not low light) conditions with excellent color rendition.

Nice little camera, easy to use... good value.

  • Summary: I bought this camera body used off another site. My initial motivation to picking a Sony Alpha was the compatibility with Minolta lenses, I have a Minolta Maxxum 7xi with a full complement of lenses and I hoped I would be able to use at least a few them.

Good value for a beginner DLSR body

  • Summary: Got the a230 as a backup body for my a65, and as a starer DSLR for my son. Excellent feature set and handling. Lightweight and easy to navigate menus make it a breeze to use. Would have loved to have live view. Works great with my collection of Sony, Minolta & Tamron A-mount lenses.

  • Excerpt: This is my first DSLR and I honestly got it b/c of the price point (Walmart had it for around $350 including 2 4G memory cards). I didn't know a whole lot about cameras or photography when I bought it but I have had it for maybe 6 or 8 months now and I am very pleased.

21 July 2011
  • Summary: This review is based purely on results. A friend in Brazail sent me a few photos, as email attachments, taken with his camera. They are, in a word, perfect. Very clean, true-looking colors, and true-to-life images (beach and surfing) in high-contrast and difficult tropical light situations, both...
