Sony Alpha DSLR-A380
Sony Alpha DSLR-A380 (with 18-55mm lens)
Editors' rating: 3.5 out of 5
The good: Capable of shooting some very nice photos; fast Live View AF and single-shot performance; tiltable LCD; dual card slots; relatively simple, straightforward operation; built-in wireless flash and image stabilization.
The bad: Smallish grip; middling viewfinder; color shifts with default settings.
The bottom line: While the Sony Alpha DSLR-A380 is a solid inexpensive dSLR with a few nice features that will probably satisfy many shooters, it doesn't deliver quite enough on any front to outshine competitors.
