"Outstanding camera at a great price."5.0 starson by clay58
Pros: Live view, swivel LCD screen. Very fast auto focus. Love the connection ports behind a sliding door. Very user friendly camera that is easy to change settings on. The Sony Alpha 330 is worth the extra $100 over the Alpha 230.
Cons: Some buttons are placed in hard to reach location. Burst mode could be faster but it is still good. Want a faster burst speed then move up to the Alpha 500.
Summary: This Sony will do all you need in a budget priced DSLR. Is it as good as a $1.200 camera? No, but at this price point it is hard to beat. I am thrilled with this camera and count this as money well spent. The live view, and swivel screen are a big plus and I would not want a camera without these features. I have taken many action photos in a gymnasium with very bad lighting. The Sony performs well even without a flash and I get good photos. Even if you know nothing about using a DSLR the built in help guide on the Sony will help you take great photos. You can use an SD card or Sony Memory Stick. Also has HDMI output for connecting to a HD TV. All in all this is a fantastic camera that I am thrilled with.
