Sony Alpha 3000 review by David Kilpatrick

 

The A3000 is an E-mount camera which looks like an SLR but takes all your E-mount lenses and has a pretty good 20 megapixel sensor. It even has a metal lens mount. So what has been saved? You can now (2018) find these five-year old bodies for as little as £100. The saving . . . → Read More: Sony Alpha 3000 review by David Kilpatrick
