Sony's 10.2 megapixels a230 is the world's lightest DSLR featuring an APS-C sized image sensor and in-body image stabilisation. Its compact size makes it great for trips away when you want to grab superb pictures without taking up extra space in your luggage. Control layout on the camera has been revised with fewer buttons, so even first-time DSLR users needn't feel intimidated by the creative options on offer.
Confused by photo jargon? Help is at hand with a friendly new interface on the camera's clear, bright 2.7-inch LCD screen. Choose from any of six Scene Selection modes that adjust settings to suit any subject. The on-screen Help Guide explains your selection, complete with a sample image to demonstrate the results you'll achieve.
