The Sony® α (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera is an instant classic: the top-quality 10 MP DSLR system camera that builds on a two-decade legacy of Minolta photographic leadership, accepts 20 years of A-mount lenses sold worldwide—and introduces Sony® imaging innovations like high-sensitivity shooting with Super SteadyShot® in-camera image stabilization, Dynamic Range Optimizer to automatically increase detail in bright and dark picture areas, new Anti-Dust technology to keep the CCD imager clean for better pictures, and Eye-Start® Autofocus system for faster camera response.

- The Rebirth of a Legend.
In the revolutionary new Sony® a (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera, Sony’s mastery of digital technology combines with Minolta’s legendary SLR technology -- including autofocus and anti-shake compatibility with over 20 years of A-mount lenses sold worldwide.
- Advanced Lenses and Accessories.
The Sony® a (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera is your gateway to one of the world’s most sophisticated camera systems, 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 more.
- 10.2 MP CCD.
A large, 23.6 x 15.8mm APS-C-size CCD imager with Sony’s advanced design 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.
- Super SteadyShot®
When you shoot in low light, the shutter remains open longer -- so to compensate for shaky hands or fast-moving subjects, the Sony® Super SteadyShot® system automatically reduces image blur. And because it works in-camera, you’ll get the benefit of Super SteadyShot® stabilization with every lens you use.
- Sharp, Clear Photos That Preserve the Mood.
With high-sensitivity (ISO 1600) shooting, the Sony® a (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.
- Anti-Dust Technology.
Changing lenses in a DSLR can allow dust to enter the camera -- so to keep the CCD imager clean for better pictures, the Sony® a (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.
- Dynamic Range Optimizer.
To recover details in dark or bright areas of the picture, the Sony® a (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.
- Bionz™ Image Processor.
At the heart of the Sony® a (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.
- Eye-Start® Autofocus System.
Some DSLR systems don’t start focusing until the shutter button is half-pressed -- but that can slow down camera response. The Sony® a (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 miss.
- 2.5” Clear Photo LCD Plus™ Screen.
The Clear Photo LCD Plus™ design of the Sony® a (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.
- Continuous Burst Mode at 3 Frames Per Second.
To catch fast action more effectively, the Sony® a (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.
- Super-Accurate Exposure Control.
A 40-segment honeycomb sensing system provides multi-pattern measuring for superior exposure control accuracy.
- Flexible Exposure Modes.
For greater creative freedom in a wide range of shooting conditions, the Sony® a (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera provides full manual exposure control as well as Program Auto, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, and Exposure Compensation modes.

The Sony® a (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.
