Exclusive to Jessops!

Combining a high quality 10.2 megapixel CCD sensor, Sony's Super SteadyShot inside, Quick-AF Live View and a tiltable 2.7" LCD screen, the Alpha 300 is packed with features that will result in great looking images. Additionally Sony's "Eye-start" system always ensures the camera is ready to start shooting without wasting precious battery life. As the camera's Super SteadyShot is body mounted, both Sony Alpha and Minolta Dynax lenses can be used whilst still benefitting from image stabilisation.
