The new SonyŽ á (alpha) DSLR-A100K Camera looks like it has some good stuff designed into it. I am not much for Sony digital cameras because of a weakness in the sensor that they have used in the past. I have the Sony DSC-F707 that I purchased a few years back. I used it for a while, but noticed that bright colors like reds and yellows tend to bloom and defeat the lenses ability to capture detail. I still keep the camera and use it occasionally. It is one of the few cameras that are actually designed with night shot capability and that makes it a keeper, but the color detail distortion has discouraged me from using it as much as I would have and has inspired me to replace it with other cameras that do a better job with the basics.
Sony is now producing a DSLR that looks promising in that it seems to do a couple of things that no one else is doing. It has stabilization built into the body, not the lens. That means that expensive, anti-shake lenses are no longer needed. Too bad that it uses the Minolta lens mount. I just have too much Nikon glass to give it up. The sensor in the new Sony also has improved dynamic range. That is a big plus because most digital cameras lose out when the contrast of the available light is significant. You see that when you take a good photo on a sunny, bright day and the sensor swallows up the detail in the shadows while the bright areas in the scene are swamped. Sony claims to have resolved that in the new camera.
