  • Conclusion: The Sony A100 is competitive in performance with the cheapest Canon and Nikon bodies. The Sony system of lenses and accessories is smaller than Pentax's and much smaller than Canon's and Nikon's.

  • Excerpt: It’s a good-sized dSLR camer a with a sturdy plastic shell over a metal frame. The camera is easy to hold, with a substantial right hand grip, and the important controls are within easy reach of your fingers. The A100 has quite a few buttons and dials, which can be intimidating to new users.

What Digital Camera
23 August 2007
  • Summary: It’s always exciting to see the very first camera from a new (to this market) company. Sony’s reputation in consumer electronics whipped up a lot of hype in this camera, some of which is deserved, but generally overblown.
  • Pros: Image stabilisation, promising range of lenses, pleasant images, good LCD, good image noise control, high resolution, button placements
  • Cons: Shutter noise, slight oversaturation of images, no histogram, extended dynamic range less effective than hoped, average build quality

  • Conclusion: Sony Alpha 100 digital reflex camera No one will be surprised that Sony's first digital SLR camera bears a strong resemblance to one of Konica Minolta's models.
