Sony A450 Review


The Sony A450 is a mid-range 14.2 megapixel DSLR camera offering advanced Auto HDR functionality and high-speed continuous shooting capabilities. Slotting in above the A3- series cameras and below the A700, the Sony Alpha A450 employs an Exmor CMOS...

The Sony A450 is an eminently capable but rather uninspiring DSLR that feels like the stop-gap solution that it is, designed to hit a certain price point in the market. The loss of Sony's clever Quick AF Live View mode is a particularly bitter pill to...

Sony DSLR-A450 review


On balance the A450 shuns so many features in pursuit of high-ISO performance that it feels flawed as an all-rounder.

Sony Alpha 450 review


With Sony having so many cameras positioned in the entry-level and enthusiast market it might seem a little confusing, but each Alpha model attempts to fill its own niche in the market. The Alpha 450 warrants its place in the Alpha line-up by being an...

Sony DSLR-A450


Sony's range of DSLRs has ballooned of late to include a bewildering range of entry- and intermediate-level models, yet the replacement for the semi-pro A700 is so long overdue as to have practically missed a generation when compared with its rivals....

With low, fine-grained noise, good colour rendition and reasonable detail up to ISO6400, in terms of high-ISO performance the A450 was very impressive. The ISO12800 option less so, and likely unusable for the most part. A new HDR option combing two...

7fps shooting, in-camera HDR, sub-£500 price point

Sony Alpha A450 dSLR review


The 14.2-megapixel A450 tags itself onto the bottom end of Sony's mid-range “intermediate” dSLR cameras, flanked either side by entry level “beginner” models (A230, A330 and A380) and the cripplingly expensive full-frame “Advanced” models in the form...

Excellent build quality. Easy to use. Good range of high-quality lenses available. Very long battery life. Good value for money

No Video. Small, fixed LCD screen and no autofocus live view. Some features lacking from less expensive models. No depth-of-field preview
