Question about Sony Alpha DSLR-A100 Digital Camera

2 Answers

View finder is not accurate

My Sony DSLR viewfinder appears to not be accurate to the picture that is actually produced. The subject in the photo is aligned further to the top right than intended, therefore I have to compensate for this. I have only had the camera or two months so I am hoping someone will have a simple explanation / solution??

I have the same problem on my camera and was given an estimate of £180 to have it fixed. Did you get yours repaired? How much did it cost?

D60 Digital Camera: I put a picture on my view finder as a background ...


What you're describing is a feature called "live view" (or more accurately "live preview"). It enables the user to treat the LCD like a viewfinder to compose shots just like on any digital compact camera.

Although many newer digital SLR's now have live view, the D60 does not so you cannot achieve what you want. All that the LCD is for is to view photos already taken and to provide camera menus and information in all other modes. Composing the images before pressing the shutter is done solely via the optical viewfinder.

Mismatch between viewfinder and photograph


Is your camera an SLR, if so then your mirror might be at the wrong angle, if that is the case then you need to have a specialist tilt the mirror, if your camera is not a SLR then this is a common problem when taking pictures from a short distance away from your subject, as the view finder is above the lense so what appears centered in the view inder will be much higher up in the lense, there are two ways to fix this, one is to use the LCD, or most cameras have correction marks in the view finder,and these show where the actual edges of what the lense sees are, use the correction marks.

Pictures taken are off center


I've seen this problem before and it's a serious fault: your camera's CCD will have slipped and it seems to be a fault with the design of the CCD mountings.

Contact Sony: they have been very good in the past at offering free out of warranty repairs to faulty cameras and this is definitely not something to attempt a DIY repair on.

Cuts off the bottom of my pictures


that happens to my camera also

what i think is happening is that live view uses a digital immage not what the image sensor sees when you take the picture the optical view finder uses the atual immage that the sensor will see

View finder


Ok. On your viewfinder, there might be a round dial. Turn it to adjust focus. Otherwise, sometimes viewfinders are like that... blurry, especially electronic.

Pictures look further away than they seemed through the viewfinder


Like all point and shoot cameras, PhotoPC's viewfinder is not 100 percent accurate and will slightly magnify the subject. The actual picture will always appear to have been taken further away than what the user views through the viewfinder.

I don't know how to answer your question, since I haven't yet experienced that phenomenon. It sounds like it's just caused by the nature of the lenses used. Since you are new to the camera, I'll just warn you that it is not perfect in any way, but every function of it is very good, so the end result is amazing, and I might even say perfect. This is just the nature of the Pentax dSLR for now, and it seems that it's a Pentax thing in general. You'll find lots of dSLRs that can outperform the Pentax in one or two feature comparison tests, but if you lign up all the features of one camera and compare them with the Pentax you'll find the Pentax will beat any camera out there. It is just so well balanced, and each feature really is good enough, which adds up to a LOT. I'm sure somebody here will explain the problem you're having, and if you're like me you'll just make a few adjustments and be satisfied with the results. Post some shots too, that's an excellent way of getting feedback that will help you make the most of your Pentax. I wouldn't trade my Ds for any other camera out there even costing 10 times more.
