The Alpha 35 features a refined version of the 16.2-million-pixel sensor that we loved in the Alpha 55, yet it is Sony’s new entry-level SLT camera

Sony Alpha 35 review


Price as reviewed:


Dynamic range

While we do not have official dynamic range data, cameras with a similar sensor, such as the Pentax K-5, Nikon D7000 and Sony Alpha 55, are all able to capture more than 12EV. Looking over my images shows this to be the case with the Alpha 35, which is quite impressive for a camera at this level.

Underexposed images still maintain a lot of image detail in shadow areas, which is demonstrated when bringing back the levels during post-production. Coupled with its impressive noise control, the Alpha 35 can achieve detail recovery with minimal added noise, even up to ISO 800.

Image: Performance in low light is impressive, with good levels of image detail and well-controlled noise
