Great for amateurs, professionals, and everyone in between.

  • Summary: I've owned this camera for around 6 years now, and it's done everything I've needed it to, when I need it to, and it's never once failed me. I'm no "professional", but I've had many 20x30's framed in model homes and in many other homes, and they look wonderful. Clear and crisp like you'd expect. Judge for yourself. My website is "LJRossPhoto.com". All photography was taken with a Sony a380.

  • Summary: I've had my Sony A380 for about 3 years now. For a while I thought I'd made a mistake since I could never seem to get the clarity I wanted. The ONLY mistake was not getting something other than the 'kit' lens that came with it. Recently I started playing with the option of other lenses and bought a Minolta Maxxum 50mm f1.7 lens for my Sony. INSTANTLY I regained the confidence I'd all but lost in this camera! Sharpness that can CUT!

The Great Modern day DSLR Discontinued Cameras Sold At A Ripe Off Price

  • Summary: i Started with Konica SLR's, than onto Minolta, now Sony Dslr's i paid $500.00 when the Sony a380 CAME OUT, body only, i paid $550.00 for the Sony a33 when it first came out, body only. Both of these cameras i found better than their virgin reviews, i still have them and use them. If i would sell them today i would be lucky to get $100.00 for each of them, but yet when i look at what some individuals are asking, along with the establishment photo suppliers you would...

Sony Alpha 380 DSLR

James R. Peters, Amazon
29 November 2010
  • Summary: A great package with the inclusion of the telephoto lens. It would have been better if it was a 75mm - 300mm telephoto lens. For a DSLR the camera is fairly easy to use for a newcomer to the DSLR field, but the instruction booklet is not always easy to follow and some simple instructions with diagrams would be helpful. Even a short video explaining the various features of the camera that was included with the camera as a DVD.

Excellent camera for the beginner or more advanced photographer

  • Summary: Years ago I used to use a Nikon F SLR with an assortment of wide angle, normal, and telephoto lenses. I would buy my film in bulk, load it into casettes, shoot, then develop and print in my home darkroom. Those days are long gone. Once digital arrived I used a variety of compact cameras whose main virtue was portability and convenience, which sometimes did not provide the sharpest pictures.

  • Summary: Camera is easy to use. Still learning allthe nick nacks on camera. Faster lens would have been nice. For the money, probably one of the better cameras. Adjustable view finder is a great option.

Awesome camera, great value!

  • Summary: I initially was drawn to the Sony line of DSLR's because I've used a Sony SLR like camera for a few years now and just love it. Infact most people already thought I had a full DSLR from the picture quality. So when it was definitely time for me to upgrade, I knew I had to keep Sony on the list to compare. I talked to other photographer friends, and most leaned toward the Canon XSI as a good entry level DSLR. So I compared it to my Sony alpha 380.
