Sony Alpha A3000

Available Today

The Sony Alpha A3000 is an entry-level mirrorless camera that offers a DSLR form factor but with a Sony E-mount. Key features include:

  • Compact DSLR Form. This is Sony’s first mirrorless camera that uses a DSLR form factor. Since it’s a mirrorless camera, the lack of mirror box allows the camera to be extremely compact. Despite it’s small size, there’s room for both a EVF and pop-up fill flash. If NEX cameras have been a little too small for you, this camera may be a good option for you.
  • 20.1MP APS-C Sensor. The large APS-C sensor produces high quality, high resolution images. It has an ISO range of 100-25600, making shooting in all types of lighting conditions possible. Live view autofocus is contrast-detection, providing quick and accurate performance.
  • E-Mount. Compatible with a wide variety of E-mount lenses, as well as numerous other mounts via adapter.
  • Built-In EVF. The Tru-Finder 0.5" QVGA electronic viewfinder with 100% frame coverage gives users the option to shoot in the classic, eye-to-camera method. For those who like the arm’s length approach, the 3.0" 230.4k-Dot rear LCD performs well for both image composition and review.
  • HD Video Recording. The A3000 shoots 1080i/p HD video at up to 60fps, with the option to shoot in the more “cinematic” 24fps if desired. It records in the AVCHD codec with a max clip length of 29 minutes, and features a built-in stereo mic for in-camera audio recording.
  • Specialty Modes. Modes like Sweep Panorama and Auto HDR provide automated in-camera image merging. You’ve also got several Picture Effect Modes, Creative Styles, and a Photo Creativity Touch Interface for simple-to-use instant results.
  • A3000 camera with body cap
  • NP-FW50 rechargeable lithium battery
  • Charger
  • Camera strap
  • Camera bag
