Other buttons are logically placed, including the usual lineup of menu and playback controls that flank the 2.5-inch, 230,000-pixel LCD screen. The antishake control--now renamed as Super Steady Shot, even though it's a CCD-shift instead of the lens-shifting stabilization that's found in other with an identically named feature--has a dedicated on/off switch on the bottom right of the camera back. If you're new to SLRs, you'd probably count the Sony Alpha DSLR-A100's 10.2-megapixel CCD as its biggest feature. SLR veterans, however, will look past the pixels to the camera's wide array of other features. For example, if you shoot a lot of action, you'll probably like the eye-start autofocus. A sensor below the viewfinder activates the camera's autofocus whenever it's tripped. So, when you look through the finder, your face triggers the sensor, and the camera starts locking the focus right away. While useful for certain situations, it can be annoying and tends to drain your battery more quickly, since it'll also start focusing if any object comes within about an inch of the sensor.
