Hi,
I was looking for an entry level SLR for aviation photography and i found a Sony A330 with two lenses (a 18-55mm and a 70-300mm) for under £500. I was wondering if anyone has/knows about the A330 and knows if its any good for Aviation Photography?

Thanks
Sam

It'll do the job like any entry level camera will, in terms of image quality/focus speed, etc. You might be happier with an A500 or A450 as they are much faster in terms of framerate and have more external controls.

Quoting LHR101 (Thread starter):

I started with an A200 and loved it so much i upgraded to the A700 (as well as some better lenses haha). The A330 is a great camera, those lenses are alright for a beginner lens. Is it the 75-300mm kit lens that it comes with? If so I used that one for a little while and was surprised to find how soft it was, but that's what you get with a kit lens. Those two lenses are really good for beginning just know if you become serious you are probably going to want to bump up to the 70-300 G series (Which I did and now purchased the 70-400 and need to sell my 70-300). I really enjoy my Sony Alpha and it's great for spotting.

the 75-300mm is not a kit lense, its a combined offer
