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.

A great DSLR camera!!

Eric, Abes of Maine

  • Summary: I've stepped up to the A300 from the A100. Very happy with the A300. It's fast, easy to learn, and has a bright, clear lens. It's hard to take a bad picture. I didn't think I'd use the LCD screen that much, but it does come in handy for those tight spots. But, the live preview eats thru the battery very quickly.
  • Pros: Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Easy To Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Image Quality, Image Stabilization, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Loud
