Frequent use since Christmas of 2010

  • Summary: Now we're halfway through 2013 and the camera is still working perfectly. I often use it to shoot artwork, which I usually do in full sun.

  • Summary: I bought my Sony A290 five months ago, and I've been using it regularly since. For starters, it must be said it's really easy to handle for most things.

After one (sunny) day, totally happy with the Sony A290

  • Summary: Took my new A290 to the local park/aircraft museum & got really great photos with everything set to standard. A tree with grey/green foliage, came out looking 100% natural, where other cameras have not looked so good. Green grass looked perfect.

  • Summary: This is extremely pricey for this camera. I bought mine for just under £300 at christmas from Comet. However, I will say this is a good camera for first time buyers, and amateur photographers.

  • Summary: This is my first DSLR camera and i have mixed feelings about it,. Since i'm a novice with DSLR's i have stuck to the Auto setting only trying the manual settings a few times with not so good results (Trying to learn though) The problem is the auto setting is very hit and miss.
