Not an easy one

Vaqas A Khan, Amazon

  • 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.

It's like a toy

  • Summary: I bought this and returned it for a Nikon D90. Poor quality and it felt like a toy compared to the Nikon D90. Don't waste your time or money. Go with Nikon or Canon.

Expected more than what I found

Vinaykumar Soneji "Vinay", Amazon

  • Summary: I have been using various sony cameras right from P9, P10, some fancy handy types which came out as limited editions and lately using DSC-H1 past 2 years now. I decided to buy a new series alpha of sony and is when I finalized the A300 and bought. The contrast, clarity, liveliness on the true colours is all that is lacking in A300. My DSC-H1 is excellent comparing to A300.

Forget Sony......

  • Summary: Following one week of using my Sony A300, it was no longer working. Upon Sonys' request, it was sent to one of their repair centers, who advised me that the LCD (an interior piece)was broken and not covered by the warranty. I contacted Sony who stated that it was my fault, that the interior piece was broken and that I had to pay for the repair ($151.00), they called me about four times to restate, that I was responsible, it seems that with Sony the customer is always in...

Started off pleased. I am not so pleased now.

TAGOLDSTEIN, Amazon
22 January 2008
  • Summary: I purchased the Sony A300 5 months ago through J&R Music World. The camera came to me quickly and with no apparent problems. Since then I have used the camera several times to take photos of my grandchildren and also some landscapes. I always mount the camera on a sturdy tripod. When it is not being used, it is stored in a padded camera case. The last time I turned on my camera the LCD showed a white screen with just a couple of lines running through it.

Falta o básico

e-bit, Bondfaro
21 February 2011
  • Summary: A Sony pecou e muito neste produto retirando funções que qualquer camera básica tem como a função filmadora. O foco automático é bom, mas não ideal pois costuma deixar fotos embaçadas, é ideal o uso do foco manual para maior qualidade. Em relação a cartão de memória a camera possui 2 slots possibilitando a troca de cartão enquanto um continua em uso. O flash não possui a opção de baixa sincronização, melhor adquirir um flash opcional.
  • Pros: Boa camera com qualidade de imagem adequada e boas funções para fotos especiais.
  • Cons: Não filma, não tem capa, não tem cartão de memória e não é possível combinar o uso da abertura com o tempo de exposição.

Bin nicht zufrieden

Postman "Tirol", Amazon
9 June 2009
  • Summary: Ich besitze die Sony Alpha 300 nun seit 4 Monaten. Ich habe viele Tests gelesen und hab mich schließlich für die Sony entschieden. Ich habe mit der Kamera ca. 3000 Fotos gemacht und bin eigentlich sehr zufrieden mit den Ergebnissen. Vor ungefähr einer Woche hat meine Kamera auf dem Display "Kamerafehler" angezeigt. Ich hab die Kamera ausgeschaltet bzw. den Akku entfernt und sie hat wieder funktioniert.
