Sony Alpha DSLR-A300

Camera Labs
1 May 2008
  • Summary: Sony’s latest DSLRs, the A300 and A350, double the Alpha range and illustrate Sony’s commitment in the market. Indeed by discontinuing the original A100 and introducing four brand new models in as many months, Sony has been more aggressive than any other DSLR manufacturer. Unlike rival manufacturers, Sony is also interestingly now applying the same strategy to its DSLR range as it has with compacts for years – that is, producing a base model (in this case the A200), then...
  • Pros: Built-in anti-shake - works with any lens., No-fuss Live View with quick AF., Tilting monitor., InfoLithium battery gives accurate feedback.
  • Cons: Relatively small optical viewfinder., Noise levels not much better than A350., Live View not 100% accurate., Anti-dust system not 100% effective in our tests.

Sony A300

PhotographyBLOG
22 December 2008
  • Summary: The Sony A300 is certainly a fun camera to use, owing to its zippy Live View performance, tilting screen and advanced feature set. While plastic, it is well made, looking and feeling like it was built to last. The control interface is largely intuitive and easy to use, although allow yourself a bit of time to get used to it if you are switching from another brand. If I had to pick one of its many features, I would cast my vote in favour of Manual Exposure Shift.

Sony DSLR-A300

  • Summary: A competitively-priced, feature-rich DSLR camera with a tilting LCD and live viewing.Sitting between the DSLR-A200 and DSLR-A350 models (both of which have been reviewed on this website), Sony's DSLR-A300 offers the resolution of the A200 model plus the Live View system of the A350. Initially the company had no plans to release the A300 in Australia but it obviously saw a need to compete with other manufacturers that offered live viewing in their entry-level models. . .

  • Conclusion: Se on tuonut tänä vuonna uusia malleja koko skaalalle. Vaikka taustalla on Konica-Minoltan perintö, Sony panostaa omiin uusiin ominaisuuksiin. A300 on aloittelevan harrastajan välimalli, jossa edullisimpaan kameraan nähden on lisätty käänty ...
  • Pros: Johdonmukainen käyttöliittymä, Kääntyvä näyttö ja etsin, Akkukesto
