We've just posted an almost complete set of test shots taken with the Sony A500 digital SLR camera.
The Alpha A500 is based around a 12-megapixel Sony Exmor CMOS image sensor, with ISO sensitivity ranging from a minimum of 200 to a maximum of 12,800 equivalent. Like its 14-megapixel A550 sibling, the Sony A500 features a 3.0-inch, articulated LCD display which can be tilted vertically upwards or downwards, however the screen's resolution is 230K dots instead of the A550's 922K dots. The Alpha DSLR-A500 is capable of shooting bursts of five frames per second through the optical viewfinder, or four frames per second in live view mode, but does not offer the seven frames per second mode the Alpha A550 has. See our Sony A500 Hands-on Preview for more details, and the Sony A500 samples page for all the test images we've shot so, including links to select RAW files. We'll be adding the missing far-field test shots in the near future.
