I thought the a230 was for me until I went and tried to hold one. It just wouldn't fit in my hands, grip is to small. I picked up a new a200 and i'm really pleased. Easy to use out of the box and great value for what they go for new right now. Have a close look at the 200 if you're considering a 230. Problems: Flash could be higher up.

I purchased this camera this past summer as a replacement for my Panasonic TZ3 [you can drop "any" camera so many times before it goes caput]. The Panasonic is a very good entry level digital camera - and I do miss it's compactness. But my photography progressed to a level where I needed a viewfinder. After researching both entry-level DSLR's and digital bridge cameras [Fuji's FinePix S100fs was a serious consideration] - the A200 won out! A: A very large and clear viewfinder B: Menus are ...

I bought my a200 about 16 months ago and have used it a quite lot until recent. After about 5500 clicks I can say I have probably used all functions of the camera in all kinds of conditions. For a beginner or entry-lever DSLR this is absolutely a great camera! It is fairly cheap and has enough options for most people. Pros: - Very good price for a 10mp camera, even nowadays! - Not an extensive amount of options - Easy to use, buttons are easily placed - Colours are really good and warm - ...

Construction: Well assembled building. No extra parts. Excellent holding in one hand. Features: I use a standard lens from the manufacturer. At the moment I have enough of those opportunities, which gives the camera. Image quality: Excellent image quality. Process photos on the computer practically required. Only in cases where the survey was carried out in difficult conditions for the camera. Easy of use: Camera control is simple enough and even my wife quickly sorted out. Now my whole ...

Excellent camera, works fantastic for just being a beginner myself. I work with cameras, and play with a lot of them at work, and I can say this is the best starter camera for stepping into photography, the lens itself is a nice zoom/marco feature. Problems: Nothing at the moment, works great.

In Feb 2009 I went into the camera shop to buy a Canon G10 and was encouraged to look at the A200 (with 18~70 zoom)which was the same price. Being a long time Canon SLR fan I was hesitant but then took the plunge with the A200. I have found it very easy to use but from early on was disappointed with the optics. While still shots in good light were satisfactory, they weren't much better than my old 4mp Canon A80 which has served me faithfully for about 5 years. With the A200 the sports shots ...

Purchased in July of 2008 for Studio Portraits. This is the perfect tool for such use. Never took it outdoors, but im sure I would not be disapointed. I definetly made the right choice to add to my collection. Problems: No problems, Camera funtioned as advertised

Great cam, my first DSRL, my last cam was a Panasonic FZ18, there is a notable gain in image quality, in dim light conditions you will see the difference a DSRL makes. Nice software pack. Problems: Like all DSRL, it is bulky, in occasions you will have to carry extra lenses in a bag, so I hold the FZ18 like backup.

Construction: Although a plastic body it feels a lot sturdier than other entry level dslrs I have held (canon 400d in particular). Fits well in my hands also. Features: Only thing really lacking is live view which is in the a300. Image stabilisation is a nice feature. IQ: Very pleased with IQ. I shoot RAW where I know IQ is going to be of importance, so reports of a soft JPEG engine are not worrying. Ease of use: no problems here, ergonomics are to my liking. Value: it's an absolute bargain.

fantastic camera! cheap, very effective in-camera stabilisation so all the lenses will come in stabilised, compatible with all the old minolta autofocus lenses that can be obtained for rezonable prices, stellar immage quality/low noise up to ISO 800 with 1600 still very usable, very solid built compared to the rebels and the D60, fast and reliable autofocus, plenty of lightning control options and I could keep going for the rest of the day.... I went shopping for a Nikon (just cause I used ...
