Graham, Stratford-upon-Avon Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The Sony A350 is solidly built. Live View is a useful option, but I seldom use it as the viewfinder is bright and accurate. The combination of 14 megapixels and image stabilisation gives crisp images. It sits comfortably in the hand.
Bad points:
Not really bad points, but the solid build means a weighty camera, especially if an external flash unit is added. As with many digital cameras, the dynamic range compares quite poorly with film, so I shoot routinely in RAW + JPEG which allows pictures taken under difficult conditions to be rescued, but fills up the memory card rather quickly.

michael, Liverpool Point & shoot

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Great product with loads of features that I've yet to become familiar with. Coupled with a Tamron 70/300 it gives awesome results with 'Point and Shoot' technique.
Bad points:
The User Manual wrongly assumes that the owner is either a gifted amateur or a professional photographer. This is my first SLR after years of 'point and shoot' compact digital cameras and the explanations in the guide is way over my 'knowledge' level and the many features of the A350 are wasted on me. I could probably turn my hand to nuclear fision more easily!

Digital Cameras Buyers' Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

14.2 megapixel Digital Single Lens Reflex (D-SLR) camera – body only. Supreme imaging quality plus tilting screen with Quick AF Live View for responsive, flexible shooting. In-body Super SteadyShot gives effective anti-shake performance with all Sony or Konica Minolta α-mount lenses.

Live view with super-fast responses

Extend your creative options even further with the A350. Enjoy a fresh angle on the world with every shot: the world’s first Quick AF Live View gives you the benefits of fast, accurate autofocus plus live image preview on the tilting LCD screen.

S*ay no to camera shake*

Keep things crisp and even. SteadyShot INSIDE reduces camera shake when you’re shooting handheld. It’s great for atmospheric, low-light scenes without flash as well as high-zoom shots when you haven’t got a tripod handy. And it works with all your α lens collection, too.

Great pictures from any angle

The LCD screen tilts up or down for comfortable viewing in different shooting positions. It’s really useful if you’re not holding the camera close to your eye: for example of you’re shooting above a crowd or crouching down for an interesting viewpoint.

Super-fast shooting that’s always in focus

Don’t let your digital SLR slow you down. Unique to Sony, Quick AF Live View lets you enjoy live image preview without sacrificing the convenience of fast, accurate autofocus and rapid continuous shooting.

Pristine images with no dust

Let’s keep it clean. Dust can mean annoying image specks when you’re switching lenses. This ingenious system shakes the sensor to dislodge dust every time you switch the camera off. There’s also an anti-static coating that prevents dust build-up on the sensor.
