Sony announces a new SLR camera at the CES 2008 with the A200.
The Sony A200 features upgrades influenced by the recently-introduced, high end DSLR-A700 camera and replaces the former Sony DSLR-A100 model.
The new Sony DSLR-A200 is faster, lighter and easier to use.
Updated features include a wider, 2.7-inch Clear Photo LCD screen for easy playback viewing, a more compact body and an easily-accessible mode dial, an easy-to-use function menu (camera function display), improved noise control for higher quality images; an auto focus speed 1.7x faster than the previous model, improved predictive control performance; quieter shutter sound, automatic pop-up flash and a battery life indicator that displays the percentage of battery life remaining so you know exactly when to recharge.
As seen in all Sony alpha camera bodies, the DSLR-A200 camera incorporates Super SteadyShot image stabilization in the body to allow shooting at shutter speeds of 2.5 to 3.5 steps slower than otherwise possible – a benefit realized with every compatible lens attached to the camera. Compatible lenses encompass all Minolta Maxxum mount lenses, in addition to Sony a (alpha) lens lineup - including Carl Zeiss lenses.
The 10.2MP Sony A200 will ship in February.
The Sony DSLR-A200K kit includes the camera body and a DT 18-70mm f3.5-5.6 3.9x zoom lens for about $700.
The DSLR-A200W kit includes the camera body, the DT 18-70mm lens and a 75–300mm f4.5-5.6 lens for about $900.
CES 2008 officially starts today. The flood gates to the CES show floor in Las Vegas will open and we get to see all the beautiful new TVs, gadgets and booth babes.
