Summary: Olde but goodie. My wife loves hers but it will probably take her years to get through the 90 page user manual. I recommend you get a SD card adapter ans the only standard card I could find was 8 GIG.

Pros: Practicality, Ease of use, ISO Range, Image Quality, Tilting Screen, Live View, Battery Life

The Sony A300 is my first digital SLR, but I have had a few digital point and shoot cameras in the past (the Olympus C765 is my favorite "old"...
