The Sony A3000 is a new entry-level addition to the Alpha range, and is the first in the series to use the the E-Mount lens system from the NEX compact system camera range. Confused?
Sony Alpha A3000: Features
The A3000 sports a respectable 20.1MP APS-C Exmor sensor and you'll also get 15 arty filters to play with to spruce up your snaps. As we've already mentioned, the A3000 uses the E-Mount system, giving you a total of 18 lenses to choose from.
Sony Alpha A3000: Screen
The 3-inch screen is pretty basic, and the 230k dot is not particularly impressive. Images were very grainy and practically invisible in bright sunshine.
Sony Alpha A3000: Verdict
As a budget DSLR, the Sony A3000 offers a very good price, although that's clearly reflected in the basic controls, design and build quality. We haven't been able to test out the picture quality in full just yet, but we'll be looking at that more closely in our full review.
