SONY DSC-F828 PRODUCTION CAMERA DISNEYLAND SAMPLES POSTED (12/16/03)
We are posting tonight our first gallery of pictures from a final Production 8 Megapixel Sony DSC-F828 Digital Camera. These first shots were taken earlier today in a quick trip out to Disneyland after the camera arrived this morning and was charged. It was a very bright/sunny, clear and somewhat windy day during our noon hour shooting period, so we shot all of these pictures at ISO 64 so we could test initial performance such as exposure/metering, focus, sharpness, noise levels of the sky, colors, including standard vs. real color modes, and general camera operations. We took nearly 140 shots in about one hour, which is a bit faster then normal but we had prior commitments this afternoon, and the camera came when it came. In addition, we were able to take a greater number of shots because the camera is FAST!
The Sony F828 is a very well built camera and it has a high quality look and feel to it. We found all the movements of the camera parts to be nice and smooth such as the zoom, the rotation of the camera body in relation to the lens as well as the dials. The set-up screen and menus were very quick and easy to use and thus within minutes of putting in the battery we were ready to shoot. We found the camera to focus extremely fast and shutter lag is almost non-existent. The EVF was used due to the very bright sun, and it does fairly well, it did allow us to frame shots, although it is easier to do so with the Digital Rebel's viewfinder, which we also had with us today. We found no major issues with operations of the camera so far, it works fast and is easy to use. The zoom is really nice to use as you can quickly frame a shot and with the fast shutter still get the scene before the subject moves away. Camera performance is about the best we have seen on any fixed lens prosumer camera.
With respect to the image quality we will let you see some of the shots without giving away too much here. However, we will say that the F828 does appear from all the shots we have now gone through to do a very impressive job with noise levels, including some very good sky shots with low noise all things considered. We did see some Purple fringing or Chromatic Aberrations in a few shots, but at this point it would be too early to say if the levels are anything unusual. We have many shots where there is no issue except the usual ones such as trying to get the perfect exposure or framing it just right. We did test the Real vs. Standard color modes, and so far things are looking fine in both, with it just being the users preference as to which one is preferred. Overall, we think you will see that these are nice, sharp, colorful and generally very pleasing results from Sony's new Flagship 8 megapixel model. We will have a lot more to say after further use, and we have lots of shots to compare, but for now we wanted to share just a few of our shots from Disneyland, with many more coming later tonight and over the next few days!
