Sony A850 and A900 Review

photographybay.com
31 December 2009
  • Summary: With overall solid performances from both the A900 and A850, Sony has made a powerful entrance into the full frame realm. I think the A850 and its $2000 price tag would have been a better entry point for Sony to come into the full frame semi-pro realm.

Sony alpha DSLR-A900 Review

Digitaltrends
1 July 2009
  • Conclusion: The Sony alpha DLSR-A900 is a terrific camera. It’s clearly for serious photographers who want excellent quality and are interested in making large prints and/or severe crops. It’s easy to recommend, but alas, not so easy to pay for, since you’ll want a super-quality lens—and don’t forget the flash.

What Digital Camera
27 June 2009

From a practical consideration, its resolution and the Carl Zeiss optics currently available make it a perfect match for landscape and studio photographers, as well as anyone else...

  • Cons: Handling issues, noise across sensitivity range, DT lens support

  • Conclusion: Sony Alpha DSLR cameras Sony showed the world that it is possible to bring out an entire line-up of digital SLR cameras in a short period of time and at an immense speed. And not only that, it puts Sony ahead of the competition with certain techniques that the rivals aren't yet using.

Sony Alpha A900 ( body only)

CNET
20 January 2009
  • Summary: A good first try at a pro-level camera, the Sony Alpha DSLR-A900 has the high resolution but unfortunately lacks some of the performance and usability you expect from a model in its price range.
  • Pros: High resolution; in-body image stabilization; nice viewfinder; great accessory system.
  • Cons: Can't lock focus-point selector; Intelligent Preview button much too easy to hit accidentally; some subpar aspects of performance; no Live View; loud mirror.

  • Excerpt: Sony started teasing photographers last winter with an under-glass mockup and tantalizing clues about a new "flagship" DSLR. Now that we've shot with a preproduction unit, we're convinced that the tease undersold the real camera.

Sony Alpha 900: Camera Test

Pop Photo
16 December 2008
  • Excerpt: What happens when an electronics behemoth jumps into DSLRs? In Sony's case, it pushes development into overdrive for a couple of years. Then it makes a full-frame 24.6MP CMOS sensor and steals the title of most megapixels in the 35mm format from Canon, which has held the title for as long as anyone...

22 October 2008
  • Conclusion: The Alpha 900 represents in a nutshell the almost schizophrenic nature of Sony's digital camera division, which can market compact cameras with smile detection and a Playstation style user interface at the same time as this, perhaps the most pared-down, frill-free and unashamedly 'serious' DSLR...
  • Pros: Class-leading resolutionv (as long as your lenses are good enough), incredibly solid build quality, environmental sealing, Intuitive operation and uncluttered control and menu system, Excellent out of camera JPEG results with superb tonality, dynamic range, color, Excellent raw dynamic range give...
  • Cons: Noise reduction settings applied to raw as well as JPEG files - cannot be 'turned off for raw but left on for JPEGs' (as is normal practice), Relatively high levels of noise at anything over ISO 400 (ISO 6400 is of very, very limited use), Destructive noise reduction on high ISO JPEGs removes too...
