Sony plans to dominate the DSLR market and if this launch model is anything to go by it may just succeed.

SonyAlpha 100

 

New boy Sony's out to show it means business in the DSLR market ' and the Alpha 100 is a potent warning-shot to old-hands Canon and Nikon

Great handling, excellent pics, Super Steady Shot

So-so lens kit, lens prices, clunky shutter noise

Sony Alpha 100 review

 

New boy Sony's out to show it means business in the DSLR market – and the Alpha 100 is a potent warning-shot to old-hands Canon and Nikon

Easy to use but still feature packed. Great value for beginners and cash-strapped semi-pros alike

Sony Alpha 100 DSLR

 

Ever since Canon introduced the EOS-300D in 2003, the lower end of the SLR market has been one of the most profitable camera sectors. Canon and Nikon continue to dominate the market, making Sony rather late to the party.

18-70mm kit lens, Super Steady Shot, Dust Reduction, Support for older Konica Minolta lenses, 11 exposure modes

Flash hotshoe, Plastic body, Price

Some interesting features, but the price is too steep

Sony Alpha DSLR-A100 review

 

A well-specified camera. But not as good as we'd hoped

Well-built and sturdy ; Anti-shake system

Surprisingly noisy ; Not much of a leap over other 6Mp cameras

There's lots of plastic, but the A100 feels weighty and solid and all the controls are smooth and positive.

Sony Alpha A100 review

 

Sony unleashes its first budget SLR

Longer lens length than with rivals ; Powerful anti-shake

Too much image noise ; Rivals offer better pictures for less

An SLR with cutting-edge extras, but we'd still shop around

Sony Alpha A100

 

Sony has shied away from the DSLR market thus far

Longer lens length than with rivals, Powerful anti-shake

Too much image noise, Rivals offer better pictures for less

An SLR with cutting-edge extras, but we'd still shop around

Sony Alpha 100 digital SLR camera

 

Introduced with much fanfare last summer as Sony's first foray into the sub-professional DSLR market, how will the 10Mp Sony Alpha 100 fare in comparison with the newer models?

The Sony Alpha 100 is fast, responsive and user friendly despite the level of sophistication on offer. It's also capable of some stunning results with the right lens attached, but the plastic construction is a shame.
