Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

The standard in digital photography has arrived with the Sony a (alpha) DSLR-A900. Packed with features, this flagship DSLR is the first a (alpha) to incorporate a 35mm full frame image sensor and 24.6-megapixel resolution.

It also incorporates the world's first body-integrated, full-size SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization technology. You'll also experience a larger capture area, improved wide-angle performance and tighter depth of field control with the full frame Exmor CMOS image sensor.

Equipped with Dual BIONZ imaging processors, the alpha A900 delivers continuous shooting up to 5 fps with superb image quality and ultra-low noise. The A900 also offers a large, ultra-bright glass pentaprism viewfinder with 100 percent coverage, a 3.0-inch Xtra Fine LCD display and HDMI output with PhotoTV HD compatibility.

The A900 features a 35mm full frame Exmor CMOS image sensor. The result is a larger capture area, improved wide angle performance, and tighter depth of field control.

In addition, its 24.6MP resolution maximizes the resolving power of your existing lenses and delivers sharper, higher contrast photos.The A900 provides direct HDMI output to your BRAVIA HDTV and other compatible HDTV screens, so you can view and share photos in breathtaking clarity and detail.

Additionally, PhotoTV HD capable BRAVIA HDTVs will automatically optimize display settings, such as sharpness, gradation, and color to display your images in a way that more closely matches the natural look of printed photographs.

The A900 features an impressive design befitting a premium flagship model. The simple form eschews ornamentation and exudes competence, while the iconic pentaprism design element conveys superior optical performance. The A900 also incorporates a distinctive cinnabar-colored ring circling the lens mount.

    Weighty in feel, this camera feels the business, and instead of having a 24mm APS-C sized sensor, it has a maddening 24 megapixel on a 35mm sensor. That in itself is not only class leading, (beating the yet to be launched Canon 5D Mk2 by 3 megapixels), but likely to be class establishing. The sensor is rumoured to be put into the next range of Nikon top end cameras with effect of late 2008/early 2009. Immediately the controls feel familiar to a Minolta and Sony digital user, and indeed as the layout of the controls on cameras became almost standardised, I should expect anyone who has used a digital SLR to quickly become familiar with the controls.

    Sure it is missing the additional dials for flash and exposure control like the old Minolta 7D, but flicking around the display panel using the function button and the joystick, is just as easy. Shortcut buttons on the top of the camera are well out of the way of accidental presses, giving access to exposure, white balance and ISO controls.

    Other options include creative modes, including black and white, and Dynamic Range options which try and squeeze the detail out of over or under exposed areas of a picture. Another neat touch is the preview mode. Press the depth of field button at your subject and release. A preview picture is displayed on the screen and various exposure and picture control options. Fiddle with these, until the picture looks the way you want it, and hey presto, those settings are set for you to continue shooting. Don't expect to keep the preview, it is just that, and gets deleted the minute you exit to the menus or take another picture.

    When you find the settings you like, there are three direct access (save) registers to save those settings.

    I had the pleasure of using one of these over the last weekend. Brilliant. I am a semi-pro sports photographer and I also do event photography. Ok first things first this is not the camera for either of those activities, but it is up there with the best of them for landscape and portraits. Now I have recently decided to experiment doing HDR photography (High Dynamic Range) and this camera is the best I have used to try it. The exposure range is brilliant and with its 24.6 megapixels nothing gets near it for price.

    I have given the camera 5 stars due to its unbeliveable value for money. It does have a few drawbacks ie additional cost of the battery back to the bottom of the camera (which I believe is more expensive then both the Nikon and Canon equivalents) but it feels great when attached I would urge you to buy the battery pack too.

    If I was not already a Nikon user I would certainly seriously buying this camera. Be foolish not to.

    I bought the A900 in late 2008. It's now October 2012, I've taken over 6000 shots with this camera in that time, shot in all weathers, been to exhibitions, concerts/gigs, various model shoots, corporate portrait shoots, UK Steel forum, London Fashion week, Brands Hatch, Weddings, Festivals, Studio and home shoots and more. Not once has this Excellent camera let me down, I love its weight, i love its old skool hulk style look, the colours it produces are spot on. I'm a fussy shooter, meaning I wont take the shot unless i feel its right, this camera (as with any top end camera) will let you know if the shot your about to take is right, I rarely shoot above 320iso in all conditions including night shoots and the photos are excellent quality (obviously a steady steady hand or tripod in very low light conditions is essential). Even to this day, a lot of its deeper functions are untouched, I think maybe another two years I'll know this camera completely inside out and still be amazed. It's important to note, that with ANY camera, as long as you know about lighting/contrast/and colour - then the images you get in camera will NOT disappoint you. Know your subject, Know your camera, Love your results!

    A difficult decision to move away from Canon for Pro work. However, the gamble paid off - I am on the 5700th frame and our customers love the results. I use this camera for stock, catalogues and studio shoots. It is a joy to use, sure it is not perfect (few work tools are) but the clarity and depth of colour is astounding - you do need to put quality glass on this camera or it can ruin your day. Some of the older Minolta lenses can surprise but on the whole you should not use 'Kit Lenses'. If you like me have come through the film era you will appreciate the traditional features, there is no video ( have an A55 for that). But HDR, back focus, twin card slots, optical viewfinder are high on my list.

    The downs - Battery and battery pack. Plugged in for tethering the batteries drain fast. On location you are looking at 1200 shots, sure carry extra batteries but way behind the like of a D4. To sum up - if you have no or a small amount of kit - Change! If however you have a full load of Nikon or Canon lenses... stay where you are. If you buy this camera - buy good lenses. 24 sharp Megapixels makes the clients happy!
