- on Aug 07, 2022
Looking for an entry-level DSLR in the market that also suits your budget? Sony Alpha A200K 10.2MP Digital SLR Camera Kit is the one for you. The camera actually provides value for money considering the features that you will find in higher range models of other brands. It is fast, lightweight and incredibly easy to operate, with a large 2.7″ LCD screen, simple Function Guide menu display and Creative Style settings to fine-tune camera performance. You cannot find the better combination of meter and less than this in the entry-level DSLR.
With the 10.2MP APS CCD image sensor, the camera captures enough detail for photo-quality that can be used for printing. The technology is such that it allows more light to the pixel that increases the sensitivity and reduces the noise to a standard level. The camera is equipped with Bionz processor engine for processing data-rich picture information at high speeds and reduces picture noise in the RAW data stage before image JPEG conversion. Super steady shot image stabilization for blur photos is very helpful for the person who is migrating from point of the shoot to DSLR level.
There’s a 100 to 3200 ISO sensitivity range, a 2.7-inch LCD monitor, dust reduction technology and an automatic pop-up flash in certain shooting modes. The exclusive screen is very vibrant and easy to view and has an anti-reflection coating and glare-reducing layer for shooting with accurate colors with a wide viewing angle in the daylight. The camera can shoot up to three continuous frames per second at 10.2-megapixels at the finest JPEG compression level and the eye-start autofocus is excellent. There are direct-access controls for ISO sensitivity, exposure compensation, and other picture modes.
The Sony Alpha A200k has many features that you want in a DSLR camera. All-automatic exposure, focus, and flash produce good results in many typical scenes. The technology enables faster autofocus performance and improved noise control. The large LCD is very beneficial for shooting videos. The construction is very solid and holds well in the hand. The images are clean and suitable for prints. The autofocus adjustments are accurate and precise. The camera is equipped with an optical built-in viewfinder. The image stabilization feature is very helpful for a beginner.
Many features are missing in this model that should be there in a DSLR. The features missing are wireless communication, low screen resolution, slow continuous shooting, low light performance above a certain level, touch screen, face detection focusing and articulating screen. The other downside of this camera is only 9 focus points, no micro AF adjustment, no full HD video and low-resolution sensor.
The camera is great for an entry-level photographer. You cannot have every feature considering the price. The controls are not very intuitive but also not challenging. The pros and cons are in balance for this camera. Overall a nice camera package and functionality. It is better for learning photography before moving to a high range camera
