The Sony DSLR-A100 is a 10.2 megapixel single lens reflex digital camera, evolved from the Konica Minolta DSLR technology acquired by Sony last year. The KM heritage is evident in the fact that Minolta auto-focus lenses will work with the Sony. Constr...
Good The image stabilisation is achieved in the camera body rather than in the lens which means that supplementary lenses may be cheaper and even the legacy Minolta lenses benefit from the vibration reduction.
Bad The kit lens is not up to the quality of the camera body. We would be looking seriously at buying the Sony body and the Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T 18–80 zoom.
Bottom line The Sony A100 feels just right in the hand, is very responsive and is intuitive to use. Anyone with Konica Minolta auto-focus lenses in their bag should look seriously at the Sony, it is a fine product of the marriage of the two companies.

The Sony A100 is Sonys first foray into the digital SLR market. Born out of a collaboration with Konica Minolta (who have subsequently exited the camera business), the Sony A100 builds on the existing Maxxum/Dynax lens mount with the re-christened A...
Bottom line Aiming a product at DSLR beginners, as much as existing Konica Minolta users, means ease of use and a stress-free transference of skill sets are required, and on those two counts the Sony A100 delivers. That start up time of just over a second, mere 3...

Sonys Alpha DSLR-A100 is the companys first attempt at bringing a digital SLR to market. This cameras design may look familiar, however—its almost identical to Konica Minoltas 6-megapixel D-SLR, the Maxxum 5D. As many photo enthusiasts know, Son...
Good Very good image quality. Sensor-based image stabilization.
Bad Overpriced. Too noisy at high ISOs.
Bottom line Borrowing its design from the Konica-Minolta 5D, Sonys first D-SLR may not be original or very affordable, but its nice image quality and robust feature set are promising...

No one will be surprised that Sonys first digital SLR camera bears a strong resemblance to one of Konica Minoltas models. Sony took over the camera division of the illustrious brand and the two companies had been working together even before the take...

The Sony Alpha 100 is one of the most eagerly anticipated cameras of the year. When Konica Minolta announced that they would no longer be selling DSLRs it seemed a bad day for the industry. Konica Minolta (and before them plain Minolta) hadnt really...

The Alpha DSLR-A100 marks Sonys debut into the digital SLR market and launches its new Alpha brand. Alpha was born from a collaboration announced back in July 2005 between Sony and Konica Minolta to jointly develop digital SLRs. Later in January 20...
Good 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...
Bad Anti-dust system far from infallible, Relatively noisy at 800 ISO and above, Kit lens soft in corners when open at wide angle, Cant see effect of anti-shake while composing, Feels like an enhancement, not a new DSLR...
Bottom line Sony Alpha DSLR-A100 verdict Theres no denying Sonys Alpha DSLR-A100 is an impressive camera for the money. Simply having 10.2 Megapixel resolution and built-in anti-camera-shake is enough to elevate it beyond most budget digital SLRs. Throw in a hi...

The Nikon D200 is the only other D-SLR with a 10.2MP imager and—in case you’re wondering—it is a Sony chip powering the camera.
Good 10MP CCD Built-in image stabilization Fast response...
Bad Not a production model Final marks on hold...
Bottom line Sony has gone “all in” in the D-SLR poker game, quickly leaping into the ranks of the better Canon and Nikon models. Keep it in mind if you’re looking to spend $1,000 for a new camera. Remember this was a pre-production model and we&rsqu...

In July 2005 Konica Minolta and Sony made an announcement that they were to jointly develop digital SLR cameras. This agreement hinted at shared technology between the two companies such as auto focus, metering and Anti-Shake coming from Konica Minolt...
Good Excellent resolution, plenty of detail although no leap over eight megapixels, Vibrant color response, similar hues to other digital SLRs, About a third of a stop more sensitive than indicated, Neutral tone response with soft roll-off in highlights, In-bo...
Bad High sensitivity noise at ISO 800 and 1600, Occasional Multi-segment metering under-exposure, Long exposure noise reduction artifacts (black pitting, softness, posterization), Limited image parameter adjustment (only -2 to +2), LCD anti-reflective coating...
Bottom line Sonys entrance to the digital SLR market comes thanks to their finial association with and later purchase of Konica Minoltas photo division. When you first use the A100 it clearly has more Konica Minolta DNA than Sony however their influence comes i...

Good High resolution sensor, loads of detail In-camera sharpening does a nice job of delivering crisp images with no sharpening artifacts Good color accuracy Very good image quality Built-in, body-based SteadyShot anti-shake system works well (about 2 f-sto...
Bad Combination of Wide AF and Multi-Segment Metering produces exposure variations, particularly with high-contrast subjects Minor (~1/3 EV) random exposure variation may be associated with the kit lens Significant image noise at ISO 800 and 1600 Long-expo...
Bottom line The strength of Sonys initial foray into the DSLR market is testimony to the wisdom shown by Sonys management in partnering with Konica-Minolta and eventually taking over their DSLR operations. By any measure, the Sony A100 delivers strong functional...
