Sony A390 Digital SLR

With the last half of the decade being perhaps the most ideal time to opt for not just for buying compact cameras, but also for investing in SLRs, imaging companies have pulled up their socks to encourage even the average consumer into buying a DSLR. Though this has brought an increase in the number of dilettante photographers (much to the chagrin of the professional or the serious hobbyist), the number of people who wish to understand the nitty-gritty of cameras has also gone up. Sony, for once, has brought out its DSLRs meant for even the beginner or the dilettante. One of its more serious models, however, is the Sony 390, which is meant for even the serious hobbyist. This 14.2mp camera comes with a 2.7-inch tilting LCD screen and 18-55mm wide angle zoom lens.

Design and Functioning

Sporting the design that every DSLR worth its status would boast of, the Sony 390 comes across as a sturdy option for anyone to pick up. Its magnesium alloy body is the same heavy duty kind that is demanded out of powerful DSLRs. This model features an attractive new grip design that allows even more comfortable handling. Upper control areas of the Sony 390 have also been revised with a clear, uncluttered new button layout. The 390 features a variable-angle LCD monitor that can be tilted up or down making it a snap to capture high-position and low-position photos. Sonys Graphic Display helps the user hone his or her photographic skills by making it much easier to understand how aperture and shutter speed adjustments will affect your results. Sonys Anti-Dust Technology helps keep the CCD imager clean, resulting in consistently better pictures, by utilizing a static-free anti-dust coating on the CCD filter, as well as an anti-dust vibration that automatically shakes the CCD to help dislodge dust each time the camera is shut off. Index and Slide Show Display enable the user to quickly review photos taken using 4, 9 or 25-frame index views, or as an automatic slide show with fade-in/fade-out effect. Ever ready to click, Sonys Eye-Start Autofocus System begins precision autofocus adjustments the moment the user raises the camera to his eye, so the camera is ready to catch the perfect moment. This camera is compatible with MemoryStick Duo/ PRO Duo as well as SD/SDHC.
