The Sony Alpha A380 packs 14.2 megapixels of resolution in a camera body smaller than its predecessor, the A350. You’ll find features such as SteadyShot INSIDE, Sony’s in-camera image stabilizaton built into the body minimizing unwanted camera shake. Also popular is the 2.7″ tilt-swivel LCD that lets you check out Live View without having the camera to your face or letting you review captured images at almost any angle. Here’s one DSLR that supports popular image file formats including Raw + JPEG. Plus, if you’re fortunate enough the A380 connects directly to Sony’s Bravia HDTVs.
“The camera provided naturally colourful images with plenty of subtle tones and a consistently reliable performance – yet we expected a greater degree of sharpness overall, leading us to believe that a more expensive lens would have done better justice to the camera’s qualities.”
