chris, Manchester Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The camera is lighter than others and so is less of a strain when carrying it around, I also like how quick it sets the focus when in Auto mode.
Bad points:
The build does not feel as sturdy as other models.
The picture is not the best quality I have seen, it is good but if cropping the picture it seems to bring a bit of noise in to the image.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use entry level SLR with good picture quality.
Bad points:
Build quality although ok feels cheap.
I believe it is no longer in production, if so, a product with such a short production run is not a good buy.

Manufacturer's Description

Beautiful picture quality made simple
Even first-time DSLR users can experience superb image quality, plus speedy shooting responses and the convenience of live image preview. Compact, easy to carry and comfortable to hold, it’s also wonderfully simple to use.

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.

Quality that won’t weigh you down
Who wants to be weighed down by their DSLR? Small, light and comfortable to hold, there’s less to carry on days out, weekends away or longer trips abroad. Now there’s no excuse for leaving your camera at home.

Great results made beautifully simple
Never used a DSLR camera before? Don’t worry – help is at hand. There’s an on-screen help guide, plus a choice of Scene Selection modes to suit any subject. You’ll get amazing results without having to worry about fiddly settings.

Control the show in comfort
Connect the camera to your BRAVIA television – then effortlessly control playback functions with your BRAVIA TV’s remote. There’s no need to get up from your favourite chair to enjoy the show in sparkling HD.
