excellent 1st dslr,
This review is from: Sony DSLRA290L Alpha Digital SLR Camera with SAL1855 Lens (14.2MP 2.5 inch LCD) (Electronics)
after returning my 1st Sony a290 as it developed a fault, i have now used its replacement for over 12 months. the camera is an ideal starter DSLR, with easy to understand graphics on screen. which helps using it out off auto. i have learned a lot using this camera and am very pleased with it. it is a bit smaller than the bigger top notch cameras so easier to hold in smaller hands. even my grandchildren like to use it. it does not have a video function but i knew that when i purchased it and i personally do not need it.

its was faulty, did it not strike you to get a replacement FREE OF CHARGE - Like these things do happen, and your not singled out.
it can happen to me or anyone, however Why oh! Why, did you not just ask for a new replacement, com'on... there is a much bigger depth of field the DSLR and than on a Compact shooter, ALSO THE DSLR is cabable off razor sharpe pin point accuracy snaps, when the compact is much less quality, poorer Optics - poorer CCD, the image chip in DSLR IS MASSIVE and is virtually noise FREE ( NO SPECS OR DOTS IN LOW LIGHT) BUT IN COMPACT LOW LIGHT IS ALWAY A PROBLEM without a flash. I hope you ask for a replacement... you Can buy the canon EOS 1000D For £300 half price heere on Amazon, best camera for the money.. with optical image stalization, live view too.

yes it did strike me that these things happen but its a b.....y nuisance when you want to use something and it goes wrong. i wanted a refund and i got a refund, i bought one else where as i didn't want to wait for replacement. i don't like the feel of the canon in my hand. but you no doubt will have something to say about that too.

I understand your thread - you have replaced your Sony at a different location and have previously tried out a Canon but didn't like the feel, and you were answering David's response (1 above) who suggested a Canon 1000D to you, I did read all the replies unlike the rude person and wish you well with your replacement.! Merry Xmas and a Happy new year to all on Amazon a truly amazing site

great sensible comments, it's amazing how many experts there are out there who are offended by someone holding a different viewpoint, well for any reading this I can tell you the photographer is more important than the camera in most everyday cases...oh and by the way I am an expert...
