Like Malcolm, the Sony Alpha A330 is in the middle. Unlike Frankie Muniz, Matt Grayson thinks that in a couple of years, the Sony will still be working.
The A330 was the first and is the only DSLR I have used. In comparison to the bridge camera it replaced, no contest, I'll never go back.
Having nothing in the same category to compare it with, I cannot comment on the performance other than to say it suits me perfectly.
Do I need a DOF preview button or a rule of thirds grid? not really, and would I use them if they were there..I doubt it.
I find with Live View I can get the desired DOF and compose the image without the lines.
The 18-55 kit lens gives surprisingly good results, certainly good enough for a beginner such as myself.
Once used to them, the controls fall into place. Overall I am pleased with the A330.
I would have liked a faster burst rate than the 3fps but for the number of times I leave single shot mode, its no big deal.
