Sony is launching a new mirrorless camera, the Alpha A3000 that comes in the shape of a DSLR camera, instead of compact design of the company’s mirrorless NEX line. The camera has a classic DSLR design and features P/A/S/M mode dial and a grip for comfortable grasp. It is equipped with a 20.1 Megapixel APS-C image sensor and supports E-mount lenses.
The A3000 comes with a bright electronic Tru-Finder with 100% field coverage that can show you plenty of information to help you capture great shots. Of course, you can also take advantage of the Live View shooting mode to frame and compose images. Its Multi Interface Shoe terminal allows users to add external accessories such as flash, video lights and microphones for enhanced shooting experience. The DSLR-style mirrorless includes 15 Pictures Effect settings such as Retro Photo, Miniature Camera, Partial Color, and there is Auto Object Framing function that can neatly trims portraits, close-ups and even moving subjects for tighter, more professional results.
The Alpha A3000 supports Full HD video recording. It will be released in September for $399.99 with a 18-55mm zoom kit lens.
