Sony A200 Review at Digital Camera Review

Digital Camera Review has posted a review of the Sony A200.

Image and color quality are good and there’s a host of inputs available to customize image parameters if the default shots don’t suit your fancy. The shutter is “DSLR quick” and auto focus performance is good in normal to marginal light, and acceptable in dim light.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H50 Review at PhotographyBLOG

PhotographyBLOG has posted a review of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H50.

. . . the H50′s image quality is better than expected, and if its images don’t quite sing like those from a DSLR with a subject dedicated lens attached, they’re nevertheless reassuringly sharp and colourful even at the default settings, with the ability to adjust these parameters either way to suit personal taste.

Sony A350 Review at Photoclub Alpha

Photoclub Alpha has posted a “creative” review of the 14.2 megapixel Sony A350.

Sony uses that slogan – ‘like.no.other’. Dead right. You can not call the Alpha 350 ‘recommended’ or ‘best buy’ or anything else like that. It is unique at the price, it offers performance features entirely out of line with the expected aims of a new DSLR at £399, and it can do half a dozen things which no competitor can match.

Sony Back-Illuminated CMOS Image Sensor

Sony is about to shake things up in the digital camera world with a new image sensor.  Those of you who think the Live View tech and articulating LCD panel are just gimmicks (see Sony A350 review) will enjoy this potentially revolutionary development.  In the sample image below, you can see the potential that this new sensor technology brings to the table.  A couple of the obvious benefits to photographers are low light shooting with lower noise levels, which results in better overall image quality.  Currently, the prototype sensor is only 5 megapixels (which is probably plenty for most of us in most applications); however, you can expect Sony to push this tech to its limits and produce some astounding cameras in the near future.

It is incredibly easy to use with several automatic shooting modes to assist you in difficult situations (not to mention a very handy Smile Shutter mode). The quality of our images was very good, as was the video.
