**First time deal poster so apologies if I have done anything wrong**

The entry-level Sony Alpha DSLR-A230 Digital SLR Camera + 18-55mm Sony Zoom Lens is an appealing and affordable way into digital SLR photography and could be the perfect choice for you!

This 10.2 mp camera is packed with a wide range of useful features which will help you to realise your creative potential. The Sony Alpha DSLR-A230 has the smallest and lightest body among the Sony alpha series of cameras, which makes it eminently portable.

The Sony Alpha DSLR-A230 also integrates sensor-shift image stabilisation, which counteracts the effects of camera-shake regardless of the fitted lens. This has an obvious advantage over other systems, where image stabilisation is dependent on the lens used. The sensor shake mechanism in combination with an anti-static coating also helps to combat the adverse effects of dust!

Other features of the Sony Alpha DSLR-A230 Digital SLR include a 9-point AF system with EyeStart activation, full-resolution 2.5 fps continuous shooting, and the D-Range Optimizer with Advanced mode - which delivers beautifully even exposures with good shadow detail.

The lens on offer here is the Sony DT 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 Standard Zoom Lens. The focal length equates to a 27-82.5mm lens in 35mm terms, which will enable you to photograph anything from landscapes to portraits with ease. The lens features a built-in Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM) for whisper-quiet AF operation, and is designed specifically for the APS-C sensor, which facilitates a compact and lightweight design.

With loads of features, the Sony Alpha DSLR-A230 Digital SLR Camera + 18-55mm Sony Zoom Lens is a great choice for any aspiring photographer!

Seems like a good deal to me but I don't know much on DSLR - even at entry level

Down to £257.10 if you use the 5% code hot5 and 3% cashback but you'd have to get it delivered to your home (for free). Hot from me but only if you use the code and cashback, its still £269.99 @ Argoooose.

Has been for this price a while now in Dixons, Macro, Tesco, Currys.
It's a good price but don't forget you will be stuck with the Sony system.

Before you commit to a DSLR system, go to a shop and handle several cameras.
You'll be amazed about the differences in handling and comfort. I strongly recommend it, it was an eye-opener for me (my choice would not be a Sony, because of my big hands and use of left eye)

Good advice regarding handling any camera before you buy, but to say you will be "stuck with Sony system" implies this would be a bad thing - I disagree, but each to their own.

Sony aplhas can utilise a large back catalogue of lenses from konica Minolta SLR cameras and they work well with the on-board anti shake system.

Also worth bearing in mind the A290 has been announced as a replacement and it appears to have a better and more comfortable body design.
This ain't a bad deal though.

It's my wording was wrong. What I meant was you will be stuck with any system, no matter which one you decide for. That's why it is so important to choose the right one and not just go for the cheapest. (being stuck is not negative in this sense)
