Sony is introducing its first full-frame Alpha DSLR-A900 camera, aimed at serious photo enthusiasts looking for traditional SLR performance with the added benefits of digital photography.
The Sony DSLR-A900 offers ultra-fine picture quality with the world's highest resolution, 24.6MP, 35 mm full-frame CMOS sensor and fast image processing with a new dual BIONZ processing engines.
The Sony A900 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.
The DSLR-A900 CMOS sensor delivers the photographic expressive power of wide angles and perspective that only a 35mm full-frame sensor can offer, and is designed to take advantage of the resolving power of high-precision alpha lenses. Its high pixel count and large size provide enhanced image detail and a wider dynamic range for natural color reproduction and subtle tonal gradations.
The sensor is produced using proprietary Sony planarization technologies to ensure an ultra-flat surface across the entire imaging area. Instead of a single analog/digital convertor, the sensor uses over 6,000 on-chip, column-parallel A/D converters to convert analog signals to noise-resistant digital signals at the earliest possible stage. The result is reduced noise and high-speed transfer of data.
Other features of the A900 include HDMI output, Dynamic Range Optimizer, and 3-inch, Xtra Fine LCD screen.
The A900 camera will be accompanied with an array of accessories like the recently-announced Sony HVL-F58AM flash unit with its innovative Quick Shift Bounce system, powerful performance with a guide number of 58, and wireless auto flash ratio control.
The DSLR-A900 body will be available in November for about $3,000 along with related accessories.
