Display

Average Display Diagonal

The SLT-A65Y has a relatively typical display diagonal (3 inches) compared to most of the other cameras of a similar age and type to this camera.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3" screen digital cameras currently available including the EOS 7D (£550.00), or the EOS 5D Mark II both from Canon which has better reviews.

If this digital camera display diagonal is too small for you then you might want to consider the D610 + AF-S NIKKOR 24–85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR + AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED + 32GB (3.2"), or the D600 (£913.70) (3.2") both from Nikon or the Pentax K-3 (£590.86) (3.2") which is also higher rated.
