What's missing I should make it clear that the A draws nothing from recent high-end Sony offerings like the F or R1, save perhaps for the nice metallic dials on the top deck. The lack of that "Sony stamp" is probably what makes it look Sony Alpha DSLR-A100 Camera un-Sony. Sony fans looking for their next camera will have to toss out what they expect from high-end Sony digicams, including the LCD menu interface, external flash compatibility, and special night modes. The main menu is essentially the same as Konica Minolta's design, meaning anyone owning any Konica Minolta digital camera from the past four years will feel right at home; a fact Sony executives will not likely complain about.

And there is no infrared night mode, nor the incredibly accurate laser-based AF assist that was on the F and F Though that's the same name Sony uses on all its stabilized digital cameras, Konica Minolta's system is not optical, but sensor-based: This makes two major aspects of the Alpha system body-based: It also means that all lenses that can be attached to an Alpha camera can benefit from image stabilization, whereas most others require the purchase of a special lens. Benefits Now that the talk of expectations and first impressions is over, I can get into what makes the Sony A unique. First, its APS-C sized, From our first experience, it's a pretty nice sensor, likely related, if Sony Alpha DSLR-A100 Camera identical to the CCD in the Nikon D That sensor is mounted, as I mentioned, on an improved anti-shake mechanism for from 2 to 3.

I can't vouch for that statistic, but I have captured some pretty impressive images in situations where I'd normally lose them to motion blur.


I also find Sony Alpha DSLR-A100 Camera the five bars in the viewfinder that indicate how much anti-shake latitude I have left help tell me just how shaky I can be. With a little concentration, I can bring those bars back down from three or four to one or two, where I'm better assured a stable shot.

Now you're entering shots-of-the-baby-sleeping territory, where a good deal of Sony's target market for the A lives. Our early tests indicate that CF cards are far faster than this combination.

Sony has addressed another problem with SLR cameras that until now only Olympus had even tried to solve: Their new system includes a special indium tin oxide coating on the outermost glass, which resists static build up, and the system shakes this glass to remove the Sony Alpha DSLR-A100 Camera altogether. No one guarantees that you'll never get dust on your sensor, but these measures certainly make it less likely.

Whether this shaking is done by the anti-shake system is not mentioned. There's a new processor onboard the Sony A, which Sony calls the Bionz processor pronounced like "beyonds"--if that were a word.


This is supposed to help enable a feature we haven't been able to see yet: We've tested Sony Alpha DSLR-A100 Camera pre-release sample with our standard dynamic range target, and haven't seen its effect. It could be that it's disabled on our units, so we'll have more when we do the full review.
