5 out of 5 eggsSony Alpha A3000

Pros: Spectacular sensor for the price point. Afer a month of use, indoor and outdoor shots are consistantly good. Auto focus works great. Long battery life. Great bargain!

Cons: Very minimal on the extra bells and whistles.

Other Thoughts: Overall great camera for the price. Sure isn't at the higher end, but definitely not a bad beginner or grab and go type of camera.
