DP Review
14 November 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). The A700 clearly has a lot of Minolta DNA (it's a natural successor to the popular Maxxum 7D) but also exhibits a range of development which can be attributed to the new development team that has come out of Sony's purchase of the Konica...
  • 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 DRO options, manual settings deliver biggest difference, Excellent long exposure capability, no noticeable hot pixels even at 30 seconds with NR off, Good built-in flash, well...
  • 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 the camera, Would still like to see the lowest noise reduction setting using less NR, Lack of live view will be counted against the A700 compared to the competition, No ISO di...

  • Conclusion: Sony Alpha A700 SLR camera Sony makes a real statement to the competitor with the Sony Alpha 700 digital SLR camera. Time to do some serious business! Firstly the housing is perfectly finished and the camera has an ideal hand-fit. The somewhat heavier weight is obvious and adds to the stability whilst leaving a solid impression. Looking from an ergonomic point of view, Sony did very well.

Camera Labs
1 November 2007
  • Summary: Sony Alpha DSLR-A700 Verdict: final production model The Sony Alpha DSLR-A700 is certainly an impressive DSLR and a significant step-up from the debut A100. It proves Sony can produce a camera tailored for higher-end enthusiasts while also incorporating the neat gadgets we’ve come to expect from the electronics giant. In terms of conventional camera features, Sony’s been thoughtful about controls and ergonomics, producing a DSLR which feels good and responds quickly.
  • Pros: Good build quality and ergonomics., Superb quality VGA screen., Built-in sensor-shift stabilisation., HDMI port.
  • Cons: 12 Mpixels not much better than 10., Default settings benefit from sharpening., No Live View, upper screen or Wifi option., Very tough rivals in this market.

Sony Alpha 700 DSLR Digital Camera Review

Buy-n-Shoot.com
19 February 2008
  • Excerpt: Both on paper and in the way it handles, Sony’s Alpha A700 certainly gives its prosumer DSLR competition a run for their money. 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 photographers everywhere. The mentioned 12.24-megapixel CMOS ‘Exmor’ sensor helps produce sharp...

Sony A700

PhotographyBLOG
17 January 2008
  • Summary: Offering a compelling combination of intuitive design and handling, sophisticated functionality and excellent image quality, the Sony A700 is an easy DSLR camera to recommend. Being based so clearly upon a previous Konica Minolta camera has given Sony the benefits of an already installed user-base, eager for a new body to use their lenses with, and a proven design on which to build.
