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!
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.

Excerpt: ever since i have gotten the Sony A 300 DSLR Digital Camera everyone comments on how great my pictures come out. it is very easy to use. The lens are great for zooming in and out. The clairity of the pictures are fantastic. I love the viewfinder how it comes out and you can adjust so you can get shots when others are in your way. it is easy to switch out the lens.
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 tri pod or propped somewhere using the timer.
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" camera.) The Sony is plenty feature rich for a slightly advanced amateur like me. I have taken some great shots with this camera.
Summary: This is my first DSLR, the only decent camera I had before was an Olympus C2100UZ. I bought the Sony six months ago, on the recommendation from someone I trust with these kind of things. At the time this camera had features that other cameras had which cost a couple hundred more. In particular, this camera had Live View. You can take pictures from the LCD screen in the back. A lot of entry level cameras didn't have this in early 2009. It's a fast Live View design, too.
