Best Digital SRL Entry Level: Sony Alpha 200
Easy to use, easy to carry and offered at a very attractive price with its 18-70mm zoom lens, the Sony Alpha 200 is a dream camera for beginners who want to start enjoying all the benefits of D-SLR photography. Its 10.2 megapixel sensor delivers top quality images up to ISO 400 and beyond, and the autofocus system is fast and accurate. The large LCD screen gives a clear, bright display when reviewing images, and both the in-camera image stabilisation and the anti-dust system are very effective in use. A superb, low-cost camera that’s easy to use, and a worthy winner of this award.
