Full Frame High ISO question (A900)
9 months ago

Hi All,

I'm looking at buying an A900 and had a question about high ISO capabilities. As I read up on the A900 it seems that at every turn it gets dinged as having poor high ISO capabilities, yet when I look at DxOMark low light ISO rankings, the only other cameras that rate higher than the A900 are other full frame cameras. What am I missing? Is it that in a lower light situations I am able to keep a lower ISO on the A900 than I would using an APS-C camera in the same setting?
