January 13 2008


So we’ll kick off the new year with a review of the Sony A 700, an intermediate level camera or “advanced amateur” model as Sony calls it.  This DSLR is designed to take some bread and butter away from Canon and Nikon.  How will it compare to the Canon 40D or Nikon D300?  I don’t know because I don’t have those cameras.  I do have the Sony A 100 on hand, so we can check to see what a paltry difference 2 megapixels make, and how the ISO images differ at various sensitivities.  Page link opens  Monday.This will be the now-normal running review, which will take a little longer than usual, so check back every few days to see the updates.  I’ll start posting thoughts and product photos tomorrow, with maybe some sample shots of the studio still life taken from the Konica Minolta Maxxum 5D, the Sony A 100 and A 700, all using the same lens.
