In the revolutionary new Sony® α; (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera, Sony digital technology takes you a giant step toward professional performance -- with advanced imaging, image stabilization and creative control functions, plus ease of operation that helps everyone take better digital pictures right from the start.
When you shoot with high sensitivity, the shutter remains open longer -- so to compensate for shaky hands or fast-moving subjects, the Sony® SteadyShot INSIDE™ system automatically reduces image blur. And because it works in-camera, you’ll get the benefit of SteadyShot INSIDE™ stabilization with every lens you use.
To recover details in dark or bright areas of the picture,Sony® α; (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera provides two levels of Dynamic Range Optimization: Normal DRO, to improve shadow detail using standard gamma curves for fast shot-to-shot response time, or Advanced DRO, to adjust dynamic range area-by-area for the greatest precision.
The Clear Photo LCD Plus™ design of the Sony® α (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera’s built-in screen makes it easy to read camera setup menus even in bright sunlight -- and gives you a better picture when you use your screen to set up shots and check results.
For greater creative freedom in a wide range of shooting conditions, the Sony® α; (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera provides full manual exposure control as well as Program Auto, Aperture Priority, and Shutter Priority.
The Sony® α; (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera accepts both CompactFlash™ Type I/II media and optional Memory Stick Duo™ media (with supplied adaptor).
A large APS-size CCD imager allows more light to pass to each pixel, increasing sensitivity and reducing noise -- and providing greater detail when you make big prints or crop in close on your subject.
Changing lenses in a DSLR can allow dust to enter the camera -- so to keep the CCD imager clean for better pictures, the Sony® α; (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera utilizes both static-free anti-dust coating on the CCD filter and anti-dust vibration that automatically shakes the CCD to dislodge dust each time the camera is shut off.
Some DSLR systems don’t start focusing until the shutter button is half-pressed -- but that can slow down camera response. The Sony® α; (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera begins its precision autofocus adjustments the moment you bring your eye to the viewfinder, to capture fast-action subjects other cameras might blur.
A 40-segment honeycomb sensing system provides multi-pattern measuring for superior exposure control accuracy.
A supplied NP-FM55H Lithium Ion rechargeable battery lets you take up to 750 shots2 on a full charge, recharges quickly with supplied battery charger.
The Sony® α; (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera is your gateway to an incredibly sophisticated array of lenses and accessories -- including precision Sony® standard and zoom lenses, Sony®“G” Series lenses with advanced motorized autofocusing, amazingly bright Carl Zeiss® T coated lenses, professional-quality flash units, and compatibility with over 16 million Maxxum®, Dynax and A-mount lenses sold worldwide.
With high-sensitivity (ISO 1600) shooting, the Sony® α; (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera captures great photos without flash even in low light -- which makes it an ideal system camera for shooting without a tripod or in locations (like museums and churches) where flash is prohibited.
At the heart of the Sony® α; (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera is the advanced BIONZ™ Image Processor, using hardware-based Large Scale Integrated (LSI) circuitry that responds ten times faster than software image processors -- improving camera response time, handling Dynamic Range Optimization processing and extending Stamina® battery life.
To catch fast action more effectively, the Sony® α; (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera offers continuous JPEG image capture up to the limit of your flash memory card -- plus RAW Burst Mode (up to 6 shots) with intelligent buffer management to allow more shots to be captured without waiting for the buffer to clear.
The Sony® α; (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera gives you all the focusing options you need for composing your shot with foreground, background or off-center subjects -- including manual focus point selection, Spot AF, Continuous AF and AF Lock.
