More camera than I'll ever be able to use

Larry L kelly "Larry L Kelly", Amazon
26 February 2015
  • 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.

Cheaper than repair

  • Summary: This is a replacement for one I bought new. Much cheaper to replace the body here than to upgrade to a newer camera. This takes amazing pictures. My last Alpha Camera had an issue where the camera started taking pictures off center. This is apparently a common problem with this model.

Good sharp images at low ISO or using RAW, handy tiltable live view screen

  • Summary: Makes good images generally, decent metering, on-camera flash is ok if you really need to use it but must use flash compensation in many cases. Eye level viewfinder is a little small but bright, live view decent except in bright sunlight.

Not an easy one

  • Summary: Nice images but not easy to operate. Flash creates shadows and difficult to operate aperture and focal settings. I have it but would not recommend.

Good Camera for price

wholesome housewife, Amazon
18 December 2011
  • Summary: Good Camera for price. It has an amazing focus. It takes action pictures great. The one draw back is that it doesn't zoom very far. We are planning on buying a telephoto lens. But great starter camera.

Top notch camera

8 October 2010
  • Summary: I've had this camera for close to a year and still love it. It takes beautiful pictures with little effort and has a ton of options if you want to delve in to them. The tilt-able viewfinder comes in very handy when taking pictures down low (like with children or animals) and when the camera is on a...

Great experience with this camera.

Doug c "crumvoc", Amazon
24 May 2010
  • Summary: I have had this camera for about a year, having "moved up" from a canon FTb film camera I have had since the 1970's. (Still works perfectly, by the way.) 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"...
