Sony Alpha A99 DSLR | from US$2,800.00 | www.sony.com
the problem with today’s DSLR cameras are, they are all feature-rich and thus, we are torn by myriad of options available to us. to be honest with you, we are not writing this article to solve your dilemma, in fact, we are going to add to it by introducing you to yet another top-of-another-line DSLR – the Sony Alpha A99 DSLR. this latest flagship shooter features a 24.3-megapixel full-frame Exmor CMOS sensor, dual AF system with 19 sensors and 102 AF point system, a new AF range control function, wide sensitivity range up to ISO 25,600 that promised extremely low noise, advanced full HD 50p progressive video recording with continuous AF and pro-style audio, GPS, Memory Stick PRO/SD card slot, OLED Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder (EVF), a tilt-able 3.0-inch TFT LCD display, SteadyShot-equipped, mini HDMI out, BRAVIA sync, a 3.5mm stereo audio jack, and another 3.5mm for your mic. of course, we simply can’t list all its features and even if do, we doubt anyone would actually absorb them all. regardless, there’s one critical thing that you should know about this shooter: it should make one heck of a video rig. sure, you could use it like any DSLR for stills but with full HD 60p/24p progressive video recording on the tap, we don’t see why you should be living inside a box. oh, and all the goodies mentioned (and more) are wrapped in a tough and yet lightweight magnesium alloy body that’s weather sealed. how cool is that? dropping in this October with a sticker of $2,800 for body-only. a small gallery of the Sony Alpha A99 DSLR awaits after the break.
