Sony's A3000 occupies the middle ground between DSLR and mirrorless camera, but even though it's priced just shy of $400, it's not worth the comparatively small savings. Sony certainly didn't skimp out on the image quality, with CNET saying it's "the one thing the camera gets truly right." But they do take issue with the LCD and electronic viewfinder, with the LCD suffering from "extremely low resolution ... which makes it difficult to tell if your shot's in focus." The speed is on the slow side, with TrustedReviews finding it "lacking." The A3000 is best suited for someone who wants better photo quality than cheaper point-and-shoots, but doesn't want to spend the money on an entry-level DSLR.
