Picture quality
Camera type *
There are a number of common types of digital cameras: compact cameras, bridge cameras, mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras (MILC) and single lens reflex (SLR) cameras. Bridge cameras 'bridge the gap' between the low-end compact and high-end professional (SLR) cameras. Also MILCs populate this mid-segment by combining the larger sensors and interchangeable lenses of DSLRs with the live-preview viewing system of compact cameras.
Compact camera
Megapixel *
The number (in millions) of light-sensitive picture elements known as pixels actually used by the camera's image sensor (CCD) to record light, and which are reflected to the final number of recorded pixels stored on the memory card.

A sensor is a convertor than measures a physical quality (light, temperature etc.) and displays this electronically on a device.
CCD
Lens system
Focal length range (f-f)
Measure of how strongly the system converges or diverges light. For an optical system in air, it is the distance over which initially collimated rays are brought to a focus. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length; that is, it bends the rays more strongly, bringing them to a focus in a shorter distance.For an optical system in air, the effective focal length (f and f′) gives the distance from the front and rear principal planes (H and H′) to the corresponding focal points (F and F′).
3.5 - 5.6 mm

The Sony DSLR-A100 is a 10.2 megapixel single lens reflex digital camera, evolved from the Konica Minolta DSLR technology acquired by Sony last year. The KM heritage is evident in the fact that Minolta auto-focus lenses will work with the Sony. Constr...
Good The image stabilisation is achieved in the camera body rather than in the lens which means that supplementary lenses may be cheaper and even the legacy Minolta lenses benefit from the vibration reduction.
Bad The kit lens is not up to the quality of the camera body. We would be looking seriously at buying the Sony body and the Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T 18–80 zoom.
Bottom line The Sony A100 feels just right in the hand, is very responsive and is intuitive to use. Anyone with Konica Minolta auto-focus lenses in their bag should look seriously at the Sony, it is a fine product of the marriage of the two companies.
