Our review partner Digital Trends published a review of the Sony alpha DSLR-A900 camera.
Quote from the review: "D-SLRs are definitely where the action is in digital photography. Sales of compact point-and-shoots may have hit a wall in this recession, but digital single-lens reflex cameras continue to do well as prices have come down and quality has gone up. The new full-frame Sony alpha DSLR-A900 is a great, albeit relatively expensive example when compared to the typical D-SLR with smaller APS-C sized sensors. This beefy camera has a 24.6-megapixel full-frame imaging device, and sells for "only" $2,999. The new Nikon D3X also has a similarly-sized sensor (made by Sony) and it costs a cool $7,999! Yeow! The D3X is an incredibly featured camera, obviously designed for pros whereas the A900 is for well-heeled enthusiasts-but not investors in Bernie Madoff's funds. The closest current camera in terms of price and resolution is the Canon EOS 5D Mark II, a 21.1MP full-frame edition for $2,699, a model we'll be reviewing in the weeks ahead. All of these cameras have full-frame sensors, which means they're the same size as a frame of 35mm film, eliminating the digital cropping factor on the other 95% D-SLRs out there using smaller APS-C imagers (typically 1.5x or 1.6x). Now, the focal length of the lens you attach is what you'll capture, a true boon for wide-angle shooters. And the bigger sensor should increase overall quality with a minimal amount of digital noise. With those tidbits on the table it was time for us to test the A900 to see just how good a deal the camera is."
