A900 a fair review
Oct 22, 2008

As a very chuffed owner of said camera i think the review was very fair. It does what a review should do - points out the pro and cons and does so in what i consider to be an impartial manner.

I really cant understand why people moan about the fact that the review points out weaknesses of the a900, like High ISO noise on jpegs, surely a review should point out both the strengths and weaknesses of the thing its reviewing. Although it has to be said having the second MSduo slot is not a negative in my view lol.

The fact that a lot of users may not use Jpegs (but shoot raw as i do) does not alter the the fact that there is an issue in that respect - you can, however, make your own mind whether it is an issue that affects you having had it pointed out in the review. To criticise a review for pointing these things out is, as i see it, daft.

I can understand, to an extent , brand loyalty but it would be nice, i feel, if criticisms of the Sony range were taken a little less personally.

At the end of the day the A900 got a deserved highly recommended for i believe all the right reasons and fFor what it's worth, in my view, for the uses i will be putting it too it is a superb bit of kit
