DP Review
22 December 2008
  • Conclusion: The Alpha 700 was introduced as a complementary model to the Alpha 100; aimed more at the serious amateur and semi-professional photographer it enters a segment of the market which is buzzing with new models (EOS 40D, D300 and E-3).
  • Pros: Good detail at lower sensitivities, very slightly more than ten megapixels but no massive gain, Low noise at higher sensitivities although at the expense of detail (perhaps too much luminance NR), Excellent dynamic range at ISO 200 (more highlight range than we are used to seeing), Wide range of ...
  • Cons: Noise reduction settings are applied to raw as well as JPEG files. Would be preferable if they affected JPEG only (as is normal practice). Kudos to Sony for updating the firmware to allow you to actually turn it off at all though!, Base sensitivity isn't ISO 100, this isn't directly indicated on ...

  • Pros: Fun to use, great handling, nice features, good images
  • Cons: Top-plate buttons are fiddly, not much else

At a glance, this unit is well built, offers some 12.24-megapixels, outstanding LCD resolution, and an array of features likely to tickle the fancy of semi-serious...

  • Conclusion: Na de Sony DSLR-A700 uitvoerig in de praktijk te hebben kunnen testen kan ik kort zijn met mijn conclusie. Sony heeft met de Alpha 700 een prachtige DSLR in handen en biedt de veeleisende fotograaf, maar ook de amateur een ideaal gereedschap om digitale fotografie op hoog niveau te kunnen beoefenen.
