Sony Alpha DSLR-A100K Review - Camera Labs

Jul 18, 2006 | Category: Sony Alpha DSLR-A100K

No denying Sony’s Alpha DSLR-A100K is an impressive camera for the money. Having 10.2 Megapixel resolution and built-in anti-camera-shake is enough to elevate it beyond most budget digital SLRS.

We had high hopes for the anti-dust system, but during our test period, we suffered from several visible marks on images. Until more lenses become available and people start swapping them more often though, it’s hard to tell how effective (or not) the A100’s anti-dust system really is. What we can say for now though is it’s not in the same league as the Olympus SuperSonic Wave Filter.

Sony Alpha DSLR-A100K Review - CNET Asia

Jul 14, 2006 | Category: Sony Alpha DSLR-A100K

Sony’s entry into the digital SLR market was likely a calculated move. Though the Sony Alpha DSLR-A100K is currently its only dSLR, and an entry-level one at that, the company is clearly signaling to others that it’s serious about the digital photography segment. Based on the Alpha mount, the Alpha 100 is compatible with all past Konica Minolta lenses while Sony has 21 new glasses to complement its maiden unit.

The entry-level Alpha 100 is designed for enthusiasts who want to jump onto the digital SLR bandwagon for the first time without feeling overwhelmed.

Sony Alpha DSLR-A100K Test Review - PopPhoto

Jun 21, 2006 | Category: Sony Alpha DSLR-A100K

The Sony Alpha DSLR-A100K also incorporates what Sony calls Dynamic Range Optimization (DRO). This hardware-based system is said to analyze and manipulate RAW data in-camera, before processing and JPEG compression, in order to recover shadow or highlight detail that might otherwise be lost.

Because Sony didn’t let us take our Alphas home from Alaska, none of us has had a chance to determine whether DRO is worth yet another acronym — whether it really gives the camera a tonal advantage over its competitors. But the system did seem to tame the relentless light of Alaska’s summer, holding good detail even in sunlit snow. The system appeared, in fact, to lessen the need for RAW mode, which of course the Alpha 100 offers.

Sony Alpha DSLR-A100K Review - Digital Trends Reviews

Jun 21, 2006 | Category: Sony Alpha DSLR-A100K

The Sony Alpha DSLR-A100K was responsive, starting up in less than a second and it captured shots quickly. Continuous shooting was very fast as was focusing. We did a lot of shooting in the RAW+JPEG setting and the camera handled those massive files with ease. Remember this is a 10MP camera and JPEGs are 3872 x 2592 pixels.

Color was very accurate though we tended to up the compensation simply because we like more contrasty images, especially landscapes. Skin tones were spot on, even when making large prints (13 x 19s are no problem with a 10-megapixel camera)

Sony has gone “all in” in the D-SLR poker game, quickly leaping into the ranks of the better Canon and Nikon models.

Sony Alpha DSLR-A100K Review - Trusted Reviews

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

An extremely impressive debut from a new player in the digital SLR market, the Sony Alpha DSLR-A100K is pitched at the consumer end of the market, but is actually a better camera than most of its mid-range rivals too.

It bristles with clever technology, but is very easy to use and produces consistently excellent results. It would be a good camera for a newcomer to SLRs, but more experienced users will also find it very satisfying to use.
