Sony A900 Samples

First published on: Sunday, 15 February 2009

This page is a collection of photo samples taken with the Sony Alpha DSLR-A900, image galleries, user pictures and other examples that I’ve come across in forums, online communities, blogs and related websites. This should help in determining if the image quality of the A900 meets your expectations.

Bear in mind that the majority of these photos are resized, and may have gone through postprocessing, retouching or other edits. I just thought that it would be interesting to see, at a glance, what Sony A900 owners and users are shooting with their camera. Full-sized images, where available, will help with judging the image quality

CZ 24-70mm fashion and portraiture samples from a D3 owner

Jeffrey Anderson, a Nikon D3 owner, shared some fashion and portraits taken with his new A900.

Jeffrey also provided a full-sized portrait JPEG image. All that were done to these images in post-processing was WB (white balance) and exposure adjustments in Adobe Camera RAW (ACR).

He bought the new A900 mainly because he wanted higher resolution to work with, but the Nikon D3X proved to be too expensive for his needs. To a question on how he intends to use both the D3 and A900, Jeffrey said:

I am going to keep my D3 for higher ISO stuff and use the Sony for landscape, low ISO and studio work, and things that I want to print BIG. I don’t intend on using the A900 over 400 iso.

He mated the Sony 24 -70mm f/2.8 Carl Zeiss Vario Sonnar T zoom lens to the A900 for these images, and he was mightily impressed with the output.

The photos are a bit on the bright side, but James M Hughes saw no unrecoverable blown highlights, and provided a corrected version of the samples.
