Sony Alpha A390 and A290 Digital SLR Cameras Announced

Sony has announced two new digital SLR cameras in the Alpha range called the A290 and the A390. Each has a 14.2 megapixel sensor along with a 2.7 inch tilt LCD screen with quick AF Live View. A HDMI output is also included on both cameras.

The new Alpha cameras drop in at the lower end of digital SLR cameras that Sony offers with the A290 being the slightly lower spec of the two devices.

Even DSLR novices will find it brilliantly simple to explore the generous creative features of both new cameras. The intuitive Graphic Display makes it easy to understand the relation between shutter speed and aperture, plus the effects of your 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 you’ll achieve. Quick access to shooting and playback function menus is streamlined by colourful on-screen icons.

Both cameras are scheduled to be launched in the summer of this year although as of yet, we do not have pricing for the cameras. As soon as pricing is announced, we’ll let you know.
