Summary: After reading the reviews on the camera I decided this was to be my first dslr, I wouldn't change if for the world. I ordered it as an ex display, and the camera condition when it arrived was flawless.
Summary: I am so pleased with my Sony A290. I have taken a shot of a van which has been used in advertising material, I have taken amazing pictures of flat artwork that looks brilliant when blown up, and I generally speaking the camera was an excellent choice.
Summary: This is my first venture into owning a Digital SLR. David Bailey I aint and certainly I am no mastermind. Yet within a few minutes of reading the destruction manual I was snapping away! Excellent quality pictures and so easy to use, I'd happily reccomend this camera to anyone.
Excerpt: This camera is my prized posession, with 14.2 megapixels the picture quality is stunning. It is very easy to use and has many options, including, sunset, night lights, portrait, macro, sports, etc. you can also customise the settings to your liking.
Pros: inexpensive, simple, fast, high quality photos .
Summary: This is extremely pricey for this camera. I bought mine for just under £300 at christmas from Comet. However, I will say this is a good camera for first time buyers, and amateur photographers.
Summary: This is my first DSLR camera and i have mixed feelings about it,. Since i'm a novice with DSLR's i have stuck to the Auto setting only trying the manual settings a few times with not so good results (Trying to learn though) The problem is the auto setting is very hit and miss.
