Sony alpha 290, 390

Posted on Updated on

Sony Europe has announced two new entry-level DSLRs, the alpha 390 and alpha 290, both sporting a 14.2-megapixel sensor. There’s no word from Sony Canada or Sony US, as of this posting.

The A390 has Quick AF Live View (live image preview on the 2.7-inch tilt-angle LCD with phase-detection autofocus), and both sport a body with new grip design and revised button layout.

Both offer an intuitive Graphic Display which makes it easy to understand the relation between shutter speed and aperture, plus the effects of a chosen exposure settings on the final picture. The Help Guide offers clear, concise explanations of camera functions, illustrated by a sample image to show the results. Quick access to shooting and playback function menus is streamlined by colourful on-screen icons.

Both cameras include a mini-HDMI terminal for direct connection to any HD Ready TV. Support for PhotoTV HD ensures still image reproduction on compatible BRAVIA models. BRAVIA Sync allows control of slideshow and other camera playback functions using the TV remote.

The cameras are scheduled for summer availability.
