Sony Alpha a290

The 14.2-megapixel Sony Alpha a290 aims to bridge amateurs into the busy world of the DSLR, offering decent image quality, simple operation and a host of scene selections within a small and lightweight body that, at £400, could be a smart choice for frugal amateurs.
The DSLR market is becoming increasingly crowded with low- and mid-range cameras that pack features present on professional models. As such, it's refreshing to find a camera aimed solely at beginners. The a290 is certainly an easy camera to learn with, particularly if you don't have much experience with the layout of other manufacturers' camera controls.
