The new Sony Alpha A3000 Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens lets you take professional-looking 20 megapixel photos effortlessly. Unlock your artsy side the easy way and shoot stunning, frame-worthy images and HD video with small-camera simplicity. Best of all, can’t-miss moments and fast-action shots are captured with DSLR quality and speed—all in a lightweight camera you’ll want to take everywhere.
20.1 MP APS-C size HD Image Sensor
The a3000 uses the same sensor format that Sony builds into its full-sized α DSLR cameras. With 13 times the area of the typical point-and-shoot image sensor, APS-C sensor size makes the difference between “snapshots” and “photographs,” delivering an exceptional combination of high resolution, high sensitivity and gorgeous, blurred backgrounds.
Full HD Movies at 60i and 24p
Not only does the a3000 take high resolution, magazine worthy photos, but it can also capture stunning HD movies in your choice of standard 60i or cinematic 24p, all at Full HD 1920x1080 resolution. The AVCHD™ codec delivers stunning Blu-ray™ HD picture quality. Also included is the MP4 codec which offers smaller file size for easier upload to the web for sharing.
Gorgeous Low-light Shooting
With a new Exmor® sensor that features the same adaptive noise reduction technology from Sony’s flagship A99, the A3000 easily offers a wide range of sensitivity from ISO 100 to ISO 16000.
Up to 3.5 FPS Shooting
Enjoy the advantages of DSLR-style photography with fast action shooting. Never miss a moment of a soccer game, a gymnastics meet or even the subtle movements of a newborn baby. You'll capture amazing 20 megapixel images at up to 3.5 frames per second of continuous shooting. Standard continuous shooting speeds will vary based upon shooting conditions and memory card speeds.
Accepts Sony® E-mount Lenses
The A3000 is compatible with Sony's wide section of E-mount lenses; smaller, lighter and designed specifically for Sony's compact interchangeable lens cameras. With an array of lenses ranging from high zoom to macro, your photography is open to a world of endless creative options.
Auto HDR Mode
This feature essentially captures three shots, highlighting the best elements from each shot (details, mid-tones and shadows) to create one incredible and stunning photograph (up to 6 EV stops) - all captured in a split second. (Recommended for still subjects.)
Face Detection / Registration Technology
The camera can automatically detect and register up to eight individual faces and adjust focus, exposure, white balance and flash to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends. Can prioritize children or adults
