Sony A3000
A compromise between a mirrorless and a DSLR
By Hillary Grigonis, Last updated on: 5/18/2014

Sony's latest DSLR is a compact compromise between the size of a mirrorless and the power of a DSLR. The A3000 uses the same lenses as their mirrorless line, allowing for a much more compact system overall, yet has an APS-C sized sensor. Despite it's smaller size, the A3000 doesn't skimp on features. The A3000 uses the same image processer used on larger Sony DSLRs and has a 3.5 fps burst mode, so speed isn't sacrificed for size. The A3000 also has an easy to use interface, RAW shooting, a 25 point autofocus system and a 100% field of view optical viewfinder. At less than $400 for the body, the A3000 is priced nice.
