A large 2.7”(diag.) Clear Photo LCD Plus™ display features Live View with Quick Auto Focus, which lets you compose and shoot pictures in realtime using the LCD, just as you would with a point-and-shoot camera. In addition, the LCD display tilts up or down for low or high-angle shooting situations, such as capturing a child’s first steps or shooting over a crowd.

The Included DT18-55mm SAM Kit Lens is a good multi purpose lens. Zoom control is smooth and even, the barrel runs in and out at different lengths, and is fully drawn-in at 35mm. It extends out a maximum of 3/4" (20mm). The focal length numbers are checked at; 18mm, 24mm, 28mm, 35mm, and 55mm.

The DSLR-A390 has a BIONZ™ image processor that only Sony can provide. The BIONZ Image Processing Engine suppresses colour and luminance noise, giving you enhanced colour reproduction, rich tonal graduations and an amazing clarity of detail that captures the instant the way it was meant to be.

SteadyShot INSIDE™ in-camera image stabilization is built into each camera body, so every a-mount lens benefits from the ability to minimize blur due to camera shake.

not to mention A large 2.7”(diag.) Clear Photo LCD Plus™ display featuring Live View with Quick Auto Focus, which lets you compose and shoot pictures in realtime using the LCD, just as you would with a point-and-shoot camera.

A broad sensitivity range from ISO 100 to ISO 3200 enables you to capture beautiful color images even in very dim light -- with High ISO Noise Reduction technology that reduces picture noise artifacts at high-sensitivity ISO 1600 and ISO 3200 settings by eliminating noise from RAW data after analog-to-digital conversion.

Unfortunately
we cannot compare other manufacturers cameras.

The DSLRA390 has a Sport Setting perfect for Shooting moving subjects outdoors or in bright places, as well as shooting images continuously while the shutter button is pressed while retaining your subject in a continuous focus.
