DigITAlpha SLR review at DigIT : Our friend and DIWA member Kai Thon from the Norwegian website has published his first impression preview of the Alpha 100 dSLR camera from Sony. The Sony Alpha 100 represents the heart of a complete system that extends the appeal of D-SLR photography to a mainstream audience of photographers. The Alpha 100 camera is complemented by a choice of lighting systems and other accessories, plus an extensive range of compatible Sony α system lenses including premium optics from Carl Zeiss. The Sony 100 DSLR features several technologies that broaden users’ creative possibilities while assuring high-quality results for photographers of all abilities under a wide range of shooting conditions.
Alpha SLR review at DigITAlpha 100 camera - 10 Megapixel CCD
According to Kai Thon from "Sony would never admit this, but the CCD image sensor of 10.2 Mp is most likely identical or at least fundamentally similar to the CCD chip Sony supplies to Nikon D200 - which also is likely to be found in several new camera models later this year. The physical measures are the same, the number of pixels is the same, but different production techniques and filter systems may be used and therefore produce visual differences in the final image."

Alpha digital SLR - White Balance
Kai continues: "The camera’s White Balance control is rather sophisticated. In addition to the ordinary automatic and pre-set options, manual adjustments between 2500 and 9900 Kelvin, as well as 19 steps magenta/green compensation are available in addition to manual white balance, of course. My shots showed no WB deviation worth mentioning, but with bright sunlight and shadows, it was not really put to the test. Where my eyes saw warm colour tones, the automatic white balance control managed to satisfy my mind, rather than neutralising the colours like too many cameras would. Pleasing, good results, just as expected from an advanced camera." You want to learn more about the Alpha SLR? Continue to read the Alpha 100 SLR review at DigIT!
