Review of Sony DSLR-A350
Here is some feedback on the Sony DSLR-A350 from reviews and DSLR camera ratings from across the internet.
Pros: Fast auto-focus, state of the art live view. Very high image quality, one of the best among SLRs. Long battery life. Supports 9 AF points. Hardware-based dust-removal and sensor cleaning system. Tilting screen provided that is coupled with Live View. A review will show that the Sony A350 is more user friendly than previous Sony DSLRs and comes with a helpful array of features that are not usually found on a digital SLR, and definitely not this price bracket.
Cons: Smaller viewfinders, and is a little tunnel-visioned. Not the best flash coverage or size. Poor low light performance. Only 2.5 frames per second, so slower than other Digital SLR cameras. The A350 is among the heaviest entry level DSLRs. Plasticky feel/build.
Comments : If you are willing to spend the extra money for the higher resolution, the Sony DSLR-A350 is your choice as the picture is top quality. However, if that extra image quality is not worth it to you, then the A300 model may be the best choice for you as the A-350 is basically the same camera, just with a higher number of pixels.

Additional Sony DSLR A-350 review comments :
-Good points on the Sony DSLR A-350 include it is user friendly and faster in operation than we initially expected; has a solid, reassuringly weighty build given its plastic look and feel; it comes with a helpful array of features that are not usually found on a digital SLR, more than its competitors in this price bracket; this Sony comes with a tilting screen coupled with Live View is a big bonus for creative angled shots. Bad points on the Sony A350 include its plasticky build and the kit lens is not of highest quality.
-Sony’s DSLR-A350 is an outstanding Digital SLR camera. There is an an effective form of Image Stabilization built right into this model. The Live View performance offered by the Sony A350 is ahead of its competitors. While my review shows that this is a top DSLR camera, if you do not need the higher quality pictures that come with a 14-meagpixels model, or Live View or a variable angle LCD, the Sony DSLR A-200 may meet your needs.
Compare to the Canon EOS 450D / Rebel XSi. The Sony and the Canon are probably the closest competing models.
Compare to the Sony Alpha DSLR-A200. The Sony A200 is more of an entry level model when compared to the DSLR-A350.
Compare to the Sony Alpha DSLR-A300. The Sony A300 is the closest model to the Sony DSLR-A350.
Compare to the Olympus Evolt E-510 DSLR. The E-510 is the main Olympus DSLR competitor to the Sony A350.
The Sony A350 has incredible 14.2 MP detail. Sony's latest camera model does raise the bar. A review will show that it pushes the envelope for DSLR’s, setting a new standard of excellence for digital photographers shooting fine art-phots as well as family memories.
It comes with Live Preview in a large 2.7" LCD screen that links your subject and you, and the Live View image shown has the appearance of a video feed. It also comes with numerous extra features such as Creative Style modes for quick recall of custom settings, very quick AF response, continuous shooting at 2.5 fps while you see your subject in the viewfinder, and many others.
A review of this DSLR will show that, as of January 2008, the Sony DSLR-A350 has the highest pixel resolution in its class. This allows spectacular image detail for bright crops and making big prints. An advanced APS sized CCD imager, which was specially developed by Sony, minimizes noise more effectively and expands dynamic range for sharp, clear photos even at high sensitivity setting
