Customer Question
I have a Sony...

I have a Sony A230 camera

Technician's Assistant: How old is your A230?

About 7 years.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your A230?

Thats not my problem. My problem is with the mount and lens. What kind of mount does it have? and What lenses are available? Is there an adapter I can use for the current lenses?\

Technician's Assistant: The Camera Technician will be able to walk you through that. The Camera Technician will be able to walk you through that. Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

Is there still support for the camera?
