The reasonably priced Sony Alpha DSLR-A290L Digital SLR Camera + 18-55mm Zoom Lens is the perfect choice for anyone wanting a step up from a compact camera. Lightweight and compact in design and incredibly easy to use, this high quality entry-level offering from Sony opens up a whole new world of creative possibilities!
Thanks to a high resolution sensor and powerful BIONZ processing, this 14.2 mp camera delivers stunning image quality and a responsive performance. You'll be able to produce pin-sharp pictures up to poster-size straight out of the camera! Built-in sensor-shift image stabilisation helps to counteract the adverse effects of camera shake, and is a less expensive stabilisation solution than lens-based systems.
The Alpha A290 gives you all the control you need over your photography, regardless of your level. You can choose from scene selections to help you get the best from any photographic scenario, or you can switch to more traditional shooting modes such as shutter or aperture priority and fully manual. This is the perfect tool for advancing your photography seamlessly, with built-in on-screen help providing easy tuition.
Taking into account the 1.5x crop factor of the Alpha A290L's sensor, the supplied lens has a 35mm equivalent focal length of 27-82.5mm, which makes it a great everyday lens for subjects ranging from landscapes to portraits. It also represents an ideal starting point for any potential expansion of your kit, and by optionally adding a telephoto lens you'll have most bases covered!
Once you have some photos stored on your memory card, you can hook up easily to a high definition television via the incorporated mini-HDMI connector and see your creative efforts on the big screen! A USB connector enables easy hook-up to a PC, too.
Take your photography to the next level, with the well-featured Sony Alpha DSLR-A290L Digital SLR Camera + 18-55mm Zoom Lens!
