Sony A330 Reviews and Resources

in Sony

The Sony A330 is an entry-level DSLR, which features 10.2 megapixels and an articulating LCD screen.  The Sony A330 replaces the Sony A300, which was virtually identical in specifications to the A330.  As a result, the A330 is more of a refreshed version of the A300 rather than an all new model.  Unlike the A300 though, the Sony A330 kit lens is an 18-55mm lens rather than the 18-70mm range provided by the A300’s kit lens.

The Sony Alpha DSLR-A330 is a solid entry-level dSLR that will surely have its fans, but unless you really want Live View its cheaper sibling, the A230, is a better deal.

Certainly, I hope Sony will and could do better in terms of video compared to Canon and Nikon. As you mentioned, LiveView AF is a clear example of good innovation that Sony has implemented in their dSLR product even though they are not the first to introduce it.

As the saying goes, the one who invented it may not have the best product.

Other rumours for A330 goes for 12MP CMOS sensor, VGA LCD screen, full HD video and 4fps.
