Sony Alpha DSLR-A100K Review - PhotographyBLOG

Sep 19, 2006 | Category: Sony Alpha DSLR-A100K

The Sony Alpha DSLR-A100K’s start up time of just over a second, mere 3fps capture, and loud shutter may not be good enough to please the pros, but it’s a performance that’s more than adequate given it’s a DSLR intended for mass market consumption. The steady introduction of Carl Zeiss branded lenses will further cement its claim on the pockets of enthusiasts anyway, and Sony has reportedly invested such a hefty sum in making its DSLR brand successful that failure is not an option.

Arranged marriages can be fraught with problems, but this one appears to be working out. Sony has been careful not to claim all the glory for itself when talking to the press about the A100, hoping that what it has delivered is the best of Sony and Konica Minolta - and that seems true, at this stage.

While in certain respects the product feels compromised by its enforced blend of technologies and, I imagine, rather quick development schedule - what the Sony A100 is, is a very good camera when I believe future generations will hopefully make it great.

Sony Alpha DSLR-A100K Review - DCRP

Aug 12, 2006 | Category: Sony Alpha DSLR-A100K

With more than a little help from Konica Minolta, Sony has successfully entered the digital SLR arena with their Sony Alpha DSLR-A100K.

With a high resolution 10.2 Megapixel sensor, built-in image stabilization and dust reduction systems, and super-fast performance, the A100K gives the competition a run for their money. Despite a few annoyances, the A100 offers quite a lot — and it earns recommendation.

The A100K focuses very quickly, even at the telephoto end of the lens. When the flash is popped up (which is done manually) it will be used as an AF-assist lamp, and it helps the camera lock focus even in dark rooms. Shutter lag was not an issue, and shot-to-shot delays were minimal.

Sony Alpha DSLR-A100K Review - PopPhoto

Jul 30, 2006 | Category: Sony Alpha DSLR-A100K

The Sony Alpha DSLR-A100K has a well-designed and well-built body, is fully compatible with all older Konica Minolta lenses, has built-in image stabilization, a dust-removal system, great image and metering controls, an eye-activated AF system, and a large 2.5-inch LCD.

KM and Minolta loyalists should be thrilled with the A100, as it continues many of the best aspects of the Maxxum line and won’t let their investment in lenses go to waste.

Like a mythical bird rising from the ashes of Konica Minolta, Sony’s first digital SLR - Sony Alpha DSLR-A100K, marks the company’s entry into the big leagues of digital still imaging. With a 10.2-megapixel CCD sensor, a bevy of convenience features, an updated version of Konica Minolta’s CCD-shift image stabilization, and a design that improves slightly on the Maxxum 5D, Sony has delivered a worthy competitor in the sub-$1,000 dSLR market.

Sony Alpha DSLR-A100K deserves consideration whether you’re looking for an alternative to Canon and Nikon, you already own a selection of Maxxum AF lenses, or you’re looking for your first digital SLR.
