    Morning!

    I have the A230 and like you, i'm a complete novice with SLR's so I wanted something fairly simple that I can use.

    Mine (which is obviously a few models down from yours) still has loads of features on it and some I still don't understand, thank goodness for the 'Auto' mode. It does helpfully have on screen guides.

    As mentioned, can't go wrong with Sony.

    As your a pure novice, you will be mind boggled by all the settings on that camera Spenny, my advice is for you to go for this camera as a starter....so easy to use you could do it no problem.
