I've been using this camera for several weeks now and I am very impressed. Here are the pros, in my opinion:

(1) The camera is very light and balanced when using the 18-55 lens. My wife was very surprised at the weight, or lack of it.

(2) Minolta Maxxum autofocus lenses work flawlessly with this camera! I have two old telephotos (20 years old) that produce incredible pictures with the new Sony. My old zoom flash works too, although I have to adjust exposure manually. Although the newer Sony lenses are much lighter, quality older lenses can be purchased on auction sites for a fraction of the cost of new lenses. Just remember: they will be much heavier than today's modern opticals.

(3) The A330 functions well as an automatic point and shoot camera, but also allows the flexibility to set everything manually if desired. I especially appreciate the ease of setting white balance for those flashless shots in changing lighting conditions. Depth of field was easy to adjust using Aperture priority.

(4) Picture quality is outstanding. Viewing the high definition output on my Sony Bravia through the HDMI output is an incredible way to preview photos. My TV remote even advances the photos in my camera as I watch!

(5) It will take both an SD memory card and a Memory Stick Pro Duo card AT THE SAME TIME. When one is full, the flip of a switch changes to the other card. Memory is mostly limited by the size of your wallet.

(6) The 3200 iso setting does well in low light situations, although there is some grain.

Here are a few cons:

(1) Some functions are buried in menus. This seems to be par for the course these days for all camera manufacturers.

(2) In moving up from an 8 mega-pixel camera, this 10.

Ok, I have literally spent days painstakingly comparing entry-level DSLRs (Canon XS, XSi; Nikon d3000, d5000; Pentax k-x) and have even made my own excel spread sheet grading each of the technical pros and cons. Obviously, I finally chose the a330, so I will write this review from the perspective of the reason why i chose this camera and why I've immensely enjoyed it.

Picture Quality
- Since you are looking for an entry level DSLR, the picture quality for all entry levels is comparable (in my opinion). Since I am a manual mode shooter, the quality of my shots are really based on settings (aperture, shutter speed, ISO, light, etc) so you'll be able to get good quality out of all of them.
-I would rate the a330 as a bit more exceptional, because in the manual mode, Sony has something called "Creative Style" where you can further tweak your shot (vivid color, night shot, sunset etc....and for each one of those modes, you can further alter saturation, sharpness and contrast). See some of my pictures in my profile!

Lenses
-This was one of the first reasons why the Sony alpha series made my short list - any Sony or Minolta lens will work with this camera. In addition, because the image stabilization is built into the camera and not the lens, the cost is more reasonable compared to other lenses. Therefore, any lens I find on eBay I can use (don't have to worry if a particular Sony lens or older Minolta lens will work, so my options are endless).

Speed
- Although the continuously shooting isn't the fastest in its class, it's definitely usable.

I am by no means a professional photographer. I was sick of my point and shoot taking so long to start & the delay between each picture. It's ridiculous & plain doesn't work with my toddlers. I also was sick of paying photographers hundreds of dollars a couple of times a year to do photographs of my kids. This will save me a bundle, two trips to the photographer & it's paid for. Google how to do professional portraits at home, you'll be amazed at what you find. The accessories you'd need/want are so inexpensive. A light disc can be had for under $20, for example.

Having said that, if you are looking to move up to an SLR from a P&S model, this is a great option. It received stellar ratings from Consumer Reports, earning their best buy logo. I have never used an SLR and read lots before purchasing this camera. I took it out of the box and as soon as the battery was charged, I was shooting away. The camera comes with an ultra simple quick-start guide & a full owner's manual. This is helpful when you can't wait to start shooting.

When purchasing this camera for photographing kids/sports, spend the extra $20-30 and get the pro-stick duo memory card made by Sony. I am always skeptical of the need to purchase name brand, but the additional speed the Sony card gives this camera is exceptional. I had a generic memory card from my point and shoot. It works in the camera, but slows down shots, especially in sports mode. Since this is very important to me, it is well worth it. If you were going to say, take pictures of landscapes and flowers, maybe not so much.

In hand the camera feels sturdy and comfortable. However, there isn't a great place to hold on with your left hand.
