The Sony Alpha A3000 Digital Camera features the form-factor and
familiar shape of an SLR within a highly compact and lightweight design.
Its ergonomic grip, electronic viewfinder, and Multi Interface shoe
offer a wealth of support for intuitive operation and stability while
shooting. The A3000 utilizes a 20.1 megapixel APS-C-sized Exmor APS HD
CMOS sensor and BIONZ image processor to produce high resolution still
images and full HD 1080i/p video in multiple frame rates with marked
low-light quality and sensitivity to ISO 16000. The image processor also
contributes greatly to minimizing overall noise levels and allowing for
full-resolution continuous shooting up to 3.5 fps.
The Tru-Finder QVGA 0.5" electronic viewfinder is an intuitive means for
eye-level monitoring and is assisted by the inclusion of a 3.0"
230.4k-dot LCD monitor for image composition and menu navigation. The
two technologies provide an efficiently way of working with the A3000
and facilitate working with an intuitive menu structure to access a host
of camera features, including Picture Effects, Auto HDR mode, Auto
Object Framing, and Sweep Panorama.
Included with the camera body is a Sony E-mount 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6
Standard Zoom Lens, which provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range
of 27-82.5mm. This range of perspectives is well-suited to everyday
shooting and is further enhanced through the inclusion of Optical
SteadyShot image stabilization for minimizing the appearance of camera
shake. An internal focusing mechanism drives the lens in a smooth and
near-silent manner and the inclusion of three aspherical elements helps
to reduce chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range as well as
contribute to high overall sharpness.Light body and dependable grip for worry-free shooting Full HD video recording for capturing life's moments Up to ISO 16000 sensitivity with advanced noise reduction Fast 3.5 frames per second shooting for life in action Never miss the moment with quick AF response in Live View Unlimited creativity with 11 built-in Picture Effects Bright QVGA LCD eye-level viewfinder with 100% coverage Multi-Interface Accessory Shoe for system accessories Expanded E mount lens line-up extends your reach 20.1MP APS-C Exmor APS HD CMOS Sensor Tru-Finder 0.5 QVGA EVF 3 LCD Monitor Includes Sony E-Mount 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 Zoom Lens
