5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant value, 5 Nov. 2012
This review is from: Sony DSLRA290L Alpha Digital SLR Camera with SAL1855 Lens (14.2MP 2.5 inch LCD) (Electronics)
I am so pleased with my Sony A290. I have taken a shot of a van which has been used in advertising material, I have taken amazing pictures of flat artwork that looks brilliant when blown up, and I generally speaking the camera was an excellent choice.
I have only been using it on manual, so I can't comment on the image processing stuff, but the camera focusses perfectly and quickly (although the lens feels a bit wobbly, the images have all been sharp). The rechargable battery lasts for a good long time, the sd card slot is easy to access, I have added a Yongnou flash which works fine.
The camera is quite simple, with some basic useful functions, but these it performs well and takes good pictures. I have had some difficulty setting the white balance (the camera refusing to focus on my white card), and sometimes in low light the camera won't shoot (can't focus again) - but I'm not complaining. For the price this is brilliant.
