Most helpful reviews

Jon, cardiff Keen amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
It's easy enough to pick up and go; sophisticated enough to do everything that a much more expensive bit if kit can.

Great value, and not that bulky for a dslr.
Bad points:
Viewfinder image is small, makes manual focusing difficult without additional kit.

Clive, Musselburgh Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Lighter that the Sony Alpha 100 and tilting screen is useful. Good all round performance for my needs.
Bad points:
Lens supplied did not have the same focal length range as that was supplied with the Alpha 100 kit, it is therefore less versatile. In some of the earlier generation digital cameras the viewing screen could tilt in the vertical, as well as the horizontal axis. This feature would have been useful in the 330. The non - standard (with other makes of camera) hot shoe connector is a disadvantage.

Confirmed purchaser Keen amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
ease of use value for money especially at reduced price including 18-55DT and 55-200DT SAM lens. Lightweight body and articulating screen. Good and rapid focus. Ease of use and simple guides on the back of the screen
Bad points:
Small viewfinder, due to the articulating screen this protrudes from the back of the body which can make looking through the viewfinder difficult.
