Sony Alpha DSLR-A100 review with DT 18-70mm f3.5~5.6
1 July 2006
Summary: But it's not all good news. Increasing resolutions on sensors with the same
surface area always raises concerns over higher noise levels, and as our
, the A100 is noticeably noisier
than rivals like Canon's EOS-350D / Rebel XT, particularly at 800 ISO and above.
Our gallery also reveals higher noise levels than we'd like even at 400 ISO.
Pros: Unique and effective built-in anti-shake system, High resolution 10 Megapixel sensor, 18-70mm kit lens longer than the usual 55mm, Screen information stays upright as body rotated
Cons: Anti-dust system far from infallible, Relatively noisy at 800 ISO and above, Kit lens soft in corners when open at wide angle, Can't see effect of anti-shake while composing, Feels like an enhancement, not a new DSLR
