Photography enthusiast will love Sony's choice of E-mount interchangeable lenses that can capture a wide-range of shots, ranging from portraits to landscape scenes. The Sony α3000 is also able to shoot Full HD videos, thanks to its choice of 50i or 25p shooting modes.
For advanced users, the α3000 has a Multi Interface Shoe that adds more shooting options. A new HVL-F43M flash works great with Sony's Quick Shift Bounce system to create professional effects and a ECM-XYST1M stereo microphone ensures that every sound is captured clearly in each frame.
