Nice Entry Level Camera

z, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a nice bridge between point and shoot and DSLR. The camera is modestly priced and chocked full of features. Having said this, I would point the a35 as an even better choice. The entry level SLTs are a lot more fun, but cost a little more. I would not recommend purchasing this or any other product from Focus Camera. They charge and backorder when it suits them.

Decent entry level DSLR for the price

Dp, Amazon

  • Summary: I have owned this camera for about 4 months now. This is a decent DSLR camera with all the bells and whistles that a novice photographer can use to their advantage. I am saying this because I got this camera after using Nikon D3000. Nothing against Nikon since I own their D7000 but at sub $500 price range, this is definitely a better deal than Nikon D3000.

Nice first DSLR

correoed, Amazon

  • Summary: Nice first DSLR Generally speaking, it's a nice DSRL for new photographers. Pros. Price. If you can't spend more than $500 then I would recommend this camera. However, if you are willing to spend $600 or more, there are better options. Picture quality. I have to say I am impressed on this point. I wasn't expecting much of the kit lens, but the image it quite clear. Cons. The only drawback for me is the lack of a dedicated button for changing the AF zone.

Great Camera but lacking a few key features

R. Fernandez, Amazon
16 March 2011
  • Summary: I want to start by saying this is a great camera. However there are a few things that made me return it and get a different camera: 1. Continuous shooting. VERY slow. Almost too slow. They say it's 2.5 per second, but it felt like maybe 1.5 per second. It's not a huge issue, but my expectation was such that I thought it would be faster. It was really surprising and i couldn't get over it. 2. Battery.

Sony A390

  • Summary: Easy to use and very good picture quality. Accepts my older Minolta lenses which saved me a bunch of money. No noticeable difference in magnification qualities between new Sony lens and old Minolta lenses. Switching between Live View and view finder is very easy. I am a novice and this is a great novice camera.

User review vs Dpreview

Digifotoworld, Amazon
28 July 2010
  • Summary: DPReview has posted their review of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G10 where they write - `If you're a Sony Alpha (or Konica Minolta) user that shoots mainly at base ISO, in live view and Auto mode the Sony DSLR-A390 is worth a look, and is definitely a more agreeable camera to use than its predecessor.' The new Sony A390 is a price breaker, a first-time DSLR user's camera. Sony added a little bit more style and value, some extra pixels and a `new' Alpha DSLR is born.

Sony a (alpha) DSLR-A390L: Great Entry Level Camera

Dooyoo
17 December 2012
  • Summary: I would recommend this camera for entry level users. I bought this camera as I had never used a DSLR before and needed something to practice with. I found the camera really easy to use. The menu buttons are not complicated and it is very easy to change the ISO, white balance etc. I found that the lenses and accessories for the camera are not very expensive considering the camera is made by Sony and you also have the opportunity to use Tamron lenses.
  • Pros: Easy to use
  • Cons: Struggles with pictures in Low Light conditions

The Bridge Between Compact and DSLR Cameras

yawmedia, Dooyoo
28 December 2011
  • Summary: Going to a college where all my friends had their own SLR cameras, I was the only one still capturing images on my small compact camera. I had always thought DSLR cameras would be hard to use. However, I had soon came across the Sony Alpha390. A light, stylish and very easy to use camera for those who would like to move up to using DSLR's.
  • Pros: Easy to use, good picture quality, tilting screen, affordable.
  • Cons: There is no movie mode and some buttons are a bit easy to press by mistake.
