Good introduction to SLR,
This review is from: Sony Alpha A230L Digital SLR Camera With 18-55 mm Lens (Camera)
The Sony A230 is as good an introduction to using an SLR as I could have hoped for. Making the leap from a dodgy compact to a full blown SLR is quite a big step and I was slightly nervous about learning the ropes, but the a230 is totally intuitive and has a brilliant graphic display.
Within two or three days of use I am already playing around with the advanced features and am taking shots of a quality I never thought I would be capable of.
Note: the a230 does not have the tilting screen or live view - the photo and manufacturer's description refers to the other models in the new Sony Alpha range.
