For amateur photographers taking their work more seriously or who just want to upgrade from point-and-shoot photography, the Alpha Series A330 DSLR is a versatile and affordable solution. Capturing moments is simple with a 2.7-inch LCD viewfinder that can be tilted up or down for shooting low or above crowds. The 9-Point AF Sensor offers improved autofocus control with super quick response times and the Eye-Start Autofocus begins sharpening the image as soon as you raise the camera to your eye so you’ll never miss the action.

Don’t ruin another shot with shaky hands again. SteadyShot INSIDE camera stabilization means less blur due to camera movement. The A330 can also take up 2.5 frames per second for continuous shooting. Also, the 10.2 megapixel image sensor captures images in fine detail and features built-in dust guard technology to ensure the sharpest images every time.

In addition to being lightweight and stylish, the A330 also features several Creative Style settings like landscape and night view. The broad sensitivity and Dynamic Range Optimizer means great images are possible even in dim light or very bright light. For your convenience, you can save your photos on high-capacity Memory Sticks or SD/SDHC media. Take your digital photography to new levels with the Sony A330 today!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat entry level DSLR

Pros: Great looking camera with maximum flexibility. Features found on this camera are features that are only found on much more expensive cameras. The main features that helped me to decide on this camera are:

1. Vari-Angle LCD- helps when taking pictures from low or high POV's

2. Built in image stabilization.

3. Live View, allows me to take pictures like PAS cameras

Cons: I have found that most Sony accessories are more expensive than other leading manufacturers, such as carry cases, hand grips and power adapters.

Other Thoughts: This is an overall great camera for the beginner in SLR photography. If you are familiar with sony cameras or own a PAS, it would be easier to adjust to this one than another brand. If not then i would suggest also looking at the Nikon D3000 or Cannon XSi and compare features.
