Sony a3000 (iLCE-3000) Hands-On Reports and Previews
In this post, we round up some of the various hands-on reports and previews of the new Sony Alpha a3000 (iLCE-3000) NEX mirrorless camera with the faux-DSLR style and looks. As we mentioned in the announcement post, this is a clever attempt by Sony to convince mythical average consumers to try a "mirrorless" camera without stepping away from the comforts of a DSLR-styled camera body. It is rare for a lower-priced camera to generate more interest than a higher priced camera in the same announcement litter (Sony NEX-5T).
Sony smartly priced this very reasonably, $400, as a take-pictures-with kit (with the 18-55 kit lens). It is available for pre-order at Amazon.com with a September 8 release estimate and at Best Buy et al.
