Good: Practicality, Ease of use, ISO Range, Image Quality, Tilting Screen, Live View, Battery Life
Bad: Stock lens not great.
Comment: A seriously brilliant entry level DSLR from Sony. Literally does everything it say on the box. Could not ask for anything more. Is a very practical camera with large easy to use buttons, no issues! Also has a nice ISO range 100-3200 higher than some entry level, although the higher ISO levels do include some noise as expected. The 10.2 megapixel sensor overs really great quality with very vivid colours. Also very good for DSLR beginners with the extremely handy live view with the tilting screen, comes in very handy indeed! The battery life is also exceptional can take 800+ photos on one charge. Build quality can also not be faulted with strong sturdy buttons. Really there is no issues with this camera, so really the only thing I have to say is that perhaps you could fault the stock lens. Any DSLR first-timer will have no problems at all with it. Overall a brilliant DSLR camera with great features all at a very competitive price.
