If you look at the alternatives available, you can choose between a DSLR, and all of the competitors at this price point feature built-in Wi-Fi. Looking at the mirrorless alternatives, all of these also offer Wi-Fi, as well as quicker continuous shooting at full resolution.

  • +

    24-megapixel sensor, Good colour reproduction, Top LCD screen, Good battery life, Built in image stabilisation sensor, DRO / HDR modes for extended dynamic range, Fast focus and shutter response, 79 AF points with wide coverage, Fast live view

  • -

    Overly sensitive shutter release button, Sony 18-55mm SAM II isn't the best lens, Sensor based image stabilisation doesn't work for video, 2.7inch screen, Lacks Wi-Fi
