Another Big DSLR Debut – it’s Sony – With More on the Way
After much speculation on a model everyone knew was coming, Sony has officially introduced its full-frame (alpha) DSLR-A900 camera, telling us this one is, “aimed at serious photo enthusiasts looking for traditional SLR performance with the added benefits of digital photography.”
The A900’s CMOS sensor was making news weeks ago for its 24.6-megapixel res and Sony’s claims of super fast image processing with a new dual BIONZ processing engines. The camera is also the first to have a body-integrated image stabilization system for a full-frame sensor with Sony’s SteadyShot Inside anti-shake system.
Sony is citing the camera’s distinctive pentaprism and nostalgic body design saying, “it will evoke its full-frame optical performance.” The A900 features a bright, clear optical viewfinder with 100 percent field of view coverage.
