Sony DSLR-A230 Kit
Sony’s Alpha A230 is the cheapest of three models in the company’s consumer DSLR range, featuring 10.2 Megapixel resolution and built-in image stabilisation which works with any lens you attach. It’s a fair specification for the price, although one which shares a great deal with its predecessor, the Alpha A200. This is an interesting strategy since the majority of new rival DSLRs look pretty similar to their predecessors on the outside but normally feature significant internal enhancements. Always fond of bucking the trend, Sony has opted for the opposite strategy here, keeping most of the internals of the A230 unchanged from the earlier A200, but housing them in a significantly redesigned body with a revamped user interface. Sony has done this in an attempt to appeal to those buying their first DSLR, who have previously been put off by large cameras and tricky controls. Clearly convinced it had the internal specification right on its previous generation, Sony’s instead concentrated on shrinking the body and making it easier to use.
Sony DSLR Alpha A230
This camera is very easy to use for just about anyone, its not much more complex than a point & shoot. Controls and display are easy to understand and use (the HELP feature is nice). The down side for me is that the grip is small for my hands & I really dont see the number of accessories for this camera as say a Nikon or Canon. That said, I'm happy with my purchase and will be using this dslr for years to come.
Great product for the price!
I've been wanting a DSLR for some time. The Sony alpha A230 fits the bill perfectly! It is the perfect camera for the DSLR beginner like me but also produces professional quality photos. The full auto mode makes it as easy to use as a point-and-shoot and the manual mode gives you full control and allows you to be as creative as you want. Excellent value for the money. The only con that I can see is that you cannot switch to AA batteries if you drain the included battery so, for long shoots you either have to have a second battery (expensive) or plan shorter shoots. That however, is a minor con. Overall rating stays at 5. Good job, Sony!
My First DSLR
This is my first DSLR .. Have Had A Canon G5 point and shoot that took great photos ,, So i wanted to upgrade to the next level of photography . I look at the Big Boys and was shocked at how much you can spend . But this Sony was in my price range and light and small , and very easy to use. The photos are fabulous. and I think this is a great entry level DSLR camera ... so far so good ...
A fine performer and an excellent value.
This purchase is my first venture into DSLR cameras. I came to focus on Sony because of the Minolta heritage, the solid reviews I've read, and, frankly, because the competition for other makes tends to drive their prices a bit higher, at least in the entry level range, where I wanted to be. I came to narrow my hunt on the a230 as delivering the best specs for the money I budgeted to spend. I am not disappointed. The camera is fairly easy to learn and is a fine performer. My only complaint would be that the manual selection of speed and aperture is a bit awkward to manage with the control layout provided. It's not a big issue for me now, and if it becomes one, I'll seek another camera for that purpose. The Minolta heritage behind all Sony DSLR cameras means that there is a good supply of compatible lenses available at very reasonable prices. I can't compare, of course, to anything else in the DSLR world, but the optical performance of this a230 easily outpaces that of my 40 year old Nikkormat SLR -- which takes fabulous pictures. I will say that the old Nikkormat is built like a tank and can take some punishment. The a230 is lightweight (a plus) but I doubt that it could suffer much impact. That's ok by me. I go to fewer extremes nowadays than I did once upon a time.
