Both the cameras come with SteadyShot INSIDE system which stabilizes blurred images due to camera shakes. The α390 and α290 are each equipped with a mini HDMI terminal, USB 2.0 and support PhotoTV HD. They are also compatible with BRAVIA Sync. They are equipped with a dual memory card slot for SD and SDHC memory cards, Memory Stick PRO Duo and Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo.
The difference between the two cameras is that the α390 offers a tilt and swivel LCD display. The cameras are set to hit stores next month. It remains to be seen how much they will cost.
