Sony A330 Digital SLR Camera
Sony A330 Digital SLR Camera

After Nikon and Canon, Sony has planted itself firmly in third place in the DSLR market outselling established brands such as Pentax, Olympus and Fujifilm. Sony has a well-structured range of good quality cameras at relatively affordable prices, ranging from the entry-level 10.2MP up to the 24.6MP full-frame A900, currently selling at just under £1,800 on Amazon without a lense package.

Sony’s new generation of DLSR cameras includes the A330.  The new Sony models all share very similar all-new body designs, the A330 shares the same body and features as the more powerful A380, including a 2.7-inch fold-out monitor screen with live view.  The new body has sharper edges and broader curves, than previous iterations.  The build quality is about standard for an entry-level DSLR. The body shell is plastic and does feel a bit thin in places, although it's well finished and the controls are solidly and sensibly placed.
