Michael, Nottingham Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
High quality images for a reasonable price.
Able to use lenses from my other Sony Alphas and Minoltas.
The EVF is really excellent and a big help when composing images.
Controls and adjustment buttons logically placed and easy to use.
Fast focusing and virtually no shutter lag.
Bad points:
So far no problems.
Durability issues too early to tell.
My experiences with both my A100 and A700 makes me feel very confident about long term reliability.

David, Wimborne, Dorset Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Packed with features and loads to help the novice. I especially like the "miniature" and built in HDR effects. The viewfinder is clear and bursting with information and the 10frames per second shots are great for fast action.
Bad points:
The Auto+ feature takes a bit of getting used to and the battery is drained faster with the GPS, although you could switch that off I suppose.

Good points:
The camera weighs very little and is comfortable to hold. The live view screen that turns to allow you to use the live view in extreme angles is great for macro work .
Bad points:

Manufacturer's Description

Built to keep delivering serious images

Explore a new world of artistic possibilities. Now you can create and control extremely high quality still images and Full HD video, with super-fast shooting responses and versatile, easy-to-use creative features.

It’s all in the detail
The high-resolution 24.3 megapixel CMOS sensor assures detail-packed pictures with excellent contrast and gorgeous colours. Exmor technology cuts noise while signals are converted to digital form. The result? Flawlessly beautiful images.

Pro-style continuous shooting
Capture fleeting action with a continuous burst of full-resolution images at up to 10 frames per second. From dynamic sports to momentary expression of portrait subjects – it’s a great way to grab that decisive moment.

Discover the artist within you
Create a range of artistic styles, with no PC needed. Picture Effect offers a rich palette of options including posterise, partial colour, retro, high-key, mono and toy camera. Preview results in live view mode while shooting stills or movies.

Amazing HD movies
Capture smooth, detailed Full HD videos with accurate phase-detection autofocus of moving subjects. Produce beautiful background defocus effects, and enjoy full manual control over focus and exposure modes. Create a cinematic mood with progressive shooting.

Great pictures from any angle
The LCD screen tilts up or down for comfortable viewing in different shooting positions. It’s 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.
