Very disappointed with pictures in low light---sports photos.

  • Excerpt: I owned a Sony DSC-H1 and was very pleased with it so I purchased the SLR A100K for my wife.  We both shoot photos for sporting events.  At the same time I purchased the Canon 400 (Xti) since I wanted to change shooting lenses.  We both shoot the same events yet my Canon performs much better.  The noise of the Sony is terrible.  I have to use the noise reduction constantly when editing pictures with low light.

"Needs improvements"

SummerLeisure, CNET

  • Pros: This camera takes some very nice photos. The steady shot technology is great for capturing a clear shot, and is compatible Minolta lenses. Does well with low light/night shots.
  • Cons: Kit lens that came with the camera and subsequent replacement lenses (each lasting only a year or 2) do not last. Camera is bit heavy compared to the newer models available, & auto-focus struggles frequently. Not reliable when needed.

Issues with Flash

Otinkyad, Amazon
14 December 2006
  • Summary: Do not buy this camera if you want to use your existing flash unit, or if you wish to use Studio Flash. This is because the hot shoe only fits Sony own brand flash units, there is no PC connector on the camera, and Sony do not sell a compatible hot shoe adapter. There is also no way to turn off the pre-flash. Otherwise good.

Boa Somente a iniciantes.

  • Summary: Bom para quem está aprendendo a fotografar é uma boa opção aprender a regular as funções manualmente a entender as compensações e a utilização de todas as técnicas e operacionalidades de uma câmera profissional, embora aconselho o uso dos equipamentos de entrada da Canon e da Nikon, os preços são praticamente os mesmos e a qualidade é incomparável.
  • Pros: Bom Tamanho e empunhadura, lcd com informações rotaciona automaticamente ao girar o equipamento, comandos para ISO /Balanço do Branco entre outros individualizados de facil acesso
  • Cons: Fotômetria atrapalhada, difícil confiar nela, é extremamente necessário neste equipamento aprender a compensar manualmente, para não ficar desapontado com o Resultado., Ruídos, muitos ruídos, acima de ISO 400 é um problema, Preço absurdo de Lentes e acessórios, Sapata do Flash individualizada, complicando a utilização de Flash convencionais, O Balanço do Branco tem que ser ajustado com muita calma para amenizar problemas em ambientes fechados (principalmente escuros),...

  • Excerpt: Первый блин комом.Экспосистема очень неудачна: "ловит" малейшие яркие пятна, часто уходит в чёрное, осибенно с широкоугольниками, как со вспышкой так и без.Хлопок зеркала слишком громкий, до неприличия. Качество картинки на 100 iso прекрасное , на 400 посредственное, на 800 низкое. Заметно улучшена пылезащита. Немного лучше скорострельность камеры.
  • Pros: хорошая пылезащита
  • Cons: постоянные ошибки экспосистемы,особенно при работе с широкоугольниками. Громкий звук при нажатии на спуск.Большой шум изображения при iso больше 200
