Sony Alpha DSLR-A300 video tour


We’re pleased to present a short video tour of the Sony Alpha DSLR-A300. This demonstrates the A300’s design, screen, controls and Live View system.

There’s no need to download any new software – just press the play button in the middle of the screen below and wait for the video to start; you may need to press the button twice. The quality and any delay before playing may vary depending on your internet connection.

If the video says unavailable, please try again later. This is due to maintenance at YouTube.

Good points

Built-in anti-shake – works with any lens.
No-fuss Live View with quick AF.
Tilting monitor.
InfoLithium battery gives accurate feedback.

Bad points
Relatively small optical viewfinder.
Noise levels not much better than A350.
Live View not 100% accurate.
Anti-dust system not 100% effective in our tests.
