7.0 out of 10 (Very good)
“While the Sony Alpha DSLR-A380 is a solid inexpensive dSLR with a few nice features that will probably satisfy many shooters, it doesn't deliver quite enough on any front to outshine competitors.”

Not a Dave's Pick
“While we like the A380 for its simplicity and good image quality, you get more bang for your buck with the Sony A330, the only one of Sony's three consumer cameras to earn a Dave's Pick.”

Recommended (with reservations)
“If you shoot mainly at base ISO, in live view and Auto mode the Sony DSLR-A380 is worth a closer look. For everyone else the camera can only become a consideration if its price drops significantly. At the Sony's price point there are currently several better alternatives available.”
