The DSLR A100 is the first DSLR camera produced by Sony after they joined forces with company Konica Minolta in 2005. Konica Minolta then pulled out the camera business transferring some of their camera assets to Sony. The result was the production of Sonys firast foray into the DSLR market with the production of the DSLR-A100 a ten mega-pixel camera.
The camera was produced in 2006 and with the basic fittings was sold for around $600-$700 USD. The camera still has a second-hand sale value starting from £150+ on Ebay depending on the fittings provided. The camera itself is a sturdy build and despite being 9 years old, can still compete in terms of image quality and functions with more modern cameras. The camera still has support from Sony and a range of manuals has been provided by Sony to help users purchase compatible lenses for the camera.
