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. High ISO jpegs ok up to ISO 1600 but better to use RAW over ISO 400/800. Very good deal used generally. Fairly small and light.

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.

  • Excerpt: The sony cybershot a300 digital camera is a great camera!!  I was in the market for a great camera, when a friend reccommened this one.  I am so glad i got it!  It does everything I need it to do, and alot extra!  the view screen flips up for times when you cannot see what you are shooting at camera level.  All of the features are great!!  Takes great pictures.  I have taken family portraits, landscapes, etc with this camera, and have never been disappointed!

I love my Sony Alpha 300

  • Excerpt: The liveview on this camera is a feature that is almost necessary. It’s nice to shoot pictures from ground level perspective without having to lay on the ground or shopping multiple trails, and it’s also nice for shooting over crowds of people. The 10Mp is a sweet spot for the price, I could have spent extra to get the 350 with 14MP, but felt it was better to spend that saved money on some lenses, case, and memory card. It is extremely easy to use out of the box.

Great starter DSLR for those with a little experience.

  • Excerpt: While there may be better DSLR cameras available to the masses, there are very few "wallet friendly" with any admirable features. The Sony A300 (part of the Alpha series) is a mid to entry level DSLR camera continuing up the number chain in Sony's model. For the price point, the camera has a few standout features that beginning camera users will find helpful, most of which being the "live-view" mode.

The Sony A300 is a great starter DSLR

  • Excerpt: Ive had my Sony A300 DSLR for about 2 years now. When I first purchased it I would keep it on automatic mode cause I was worried the other features would be far to advanced. But once I read the manual and started to play with the dial and all the options I had on it, it was so easy to use. I love the self cleaning sensor (which will come in handy.) One of my favorite things about this camera is the tilt screen.

Good Camera for price

  • 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.
