Written on: 10/09/2009

I have had the Sony Alpha DSLR-A100 camera for the past three years and the work I have got out of this basic point and shoot is incredible. Functions are easy to understand, pixel resonation is excellent. stedy shot is brilliant, the 18 - 70 lens thats comes as art of the bundle gives better wide angle funtion than some wide angle specialist lenses. Have had work used in brochures and by various organsations including weddings. Sad thing is that those diehard Nikon & Canon users get a bit… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/06/2008 by Alan Palmer (2 reviews written)

I damaged my DSLR Minolta D5 which left me with 4 lenses worth about £2,500 and no camera. When Sony took over I thought that was the end but thankfully they carried on using Minolta fit lenses. They work as good with the Sony camera and the quality of pictures are the same if not better… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/05/2008 by revpeteb (1 review written)

Have operated a100 for over a year in the field as a nature photographer and have been delighted with overall performance. Love the legacy lenses from Minolta, and the Sony lenses are good too. Find the burst rate on RAW (6fps) wonderful for catching flying birds and wildlife in action. Autofocus is great, and will not allow out of focus shots when using burst...so, just set the autofocus on spot and use burst for spectacular shots of flying birds, etc.

I also find the antishake setup very… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/05/2007 by Koxinga (2 reviews written)

This is a very competent camera, and with posted prices now a tad over £400, it is a real bargain. It handles well and produces great results. The standard zoom lens than is bundled with the camera may not match those of Canon or Nikon's so some owners may want to buy those in Carl Zeiss range. Unfortunately they will be put off by the steep prices and Sony will make the camera even more attractive if they could lower their prices… Read Full Review
