Sony is expanding its Alpha digital SLR camera line with the introduction of the DSLR-A700 camera, which is aimed at photo enthusiasts or serious photo hobbyists.

Like the Sony DSLR-A100 model, the new A700 SLR incorporates Super SteadyShot Inside image stabilization in the camera body and is compatible with most Minolta Maxxum mount lenses in addition to Sony lenses. Other features of the Sony A700 DSLR camera include 12.2-megapixel Exmor CMOS sensor, 3-inch LCD screen, auto focus system features 11 wide-area sensors, fourteen creative styles, including night view, autumn leaves or vivid, maximum shutter speed of 1/8,000th of a second, and HDMI output.

There is an extensive array of customization options to personalize the camera to match shooting styles. The unit’s quick navigation interface can be accessed instantly with the four-way multi-selector, and selected parameters can be adjusted directly by control dials.

Up to 28 camera settings can be stored in one of three user memories for instant recall. The unit’s custom function button can be assigned to 15 frequently-accessed functions.

The Sony A700 also features separate slots for Memory Stick Duo™ media cards compatible with the Memory Stick PRO-HG™ high-speed data transfer standard, as well as CompactFlash™ Type I/II media cards compatible with the new Ultra Direct Memory Access standard for up to 300x write speeds.

The DSLR-A700 camera body, DT 16 – 105 mm lens, and DT 18-250 mm lens will be available for about $1,400, $580 and $550, respectively. The DSLR-A700K kit with an 18-70 mm lens will be available for about $1,500, and the DSLR-A700P kit with the 16-105 mm lens will be available for about $1,900.
