Sony A390, Great Budget DSLR Camera
Sony’s A390, starting at 350 pounds, is one of the cheapest DSLRs on the market. It features a bit of a restyling from the previous A380. For the price, the A390 is one of the best deals money can buy. The camera comes equipped with a 2.7-inch LCD screen that can be tilted for better viewing and comes with Live View that lets you check out the action when filming or setting up tripod shots.
The camera has a 14.7 MP sensor that allows it to be a powerhouse at taking sharp photos. The only drawback is that the 18-70mm kit lens doesn’t allow the user get the full advantage of the camera. The noise reduction feature is one of the best, but still not up to par with the Canon EOS 1100D for image quality.
This camera is probably a great option if you are just starting out in photography and need something professional without emptying your life savings. Although I wouldn’t recommend the camera to film experts, I think it would make a lot of photographers happy with the image quality it produces.
