Manufacturer's Description

The a450

The a450
Achieve your creative potential with the new, responsive and easy-to-use DSLR a450. Professional quality images are assured thanks to an impressive high-resolution 14 megapixels and Exmor™ CMOS sensor combined with a BIONZ image processor that assure low-noise, detail-packed pictures; even in low light. Capture fast action and facial expressions with lightning-fast continuous speed priority 7 frames a second shooting. The ISO 12800 sensitivity setting gives you the best image even under the most challenging conditions. HDR-Auto is perfect for sunsets, cityscapes and incredible views allowing you to capture an extremely high dynamic range in a single image. View your images in bright, super sharp HD. Just connect your DSLR a450 to your BRAVIA® TV. SteadyShot INSIDE™ ensures every image is clear and sharp. And thanks to the handy in-camera help guide, the perfect image is always easily within reach - no matter where you are.

Rich, clear, high-resolution images even in low light
Take high quality poster prints with the a450's incredible 14 megapixel resolution. This is achieved thanks to the camera's advanced Exmor™ CMOS sensor, which provides superbly detailed images even in low-light conditions. Developed exclusively by Sony, this new processing technology works by reducing noise on the sensor itself, before analogue to digital conversion. Press the shutter and the Exmor™ CMOS sensor, working with the BIONZ image processor, enables you to capture precise moments with speed priority 7 frames per second at full 14 mega pixel resolution. The result? Stunning clarity and crisp, clean images.

The Auto HDR function lets you capture dramatically-lit images automatically by blending two exposures

Capturing all the drama of a moment
With the a450's new Auto HDR function you can maximise dramatically lit images without the fuss of tripods or post production tweaking. It automatically takes two exposures in quick succession: one captures the shadows, the other captures the highlights. The two exposures are then combined, within two seconds, into a single breathtakingly beautiful photo, rich in colour and detail. And for beautiful pictures in low light, a clever combination of the camera's Exmor™ CMOS sensor and impressively high sensitivity setting of ISO 12800 means you can shoot without a flash.

While Auto HDR is perfect for sunsets, cityscapes and incredible views, smart D-Range Optimiser is the technology to choose when you've got a portrait or active subject in your viewfinder. Using the BIONZ engine it compensates for extremes of light and shadow to produce natural results from high-contrast scenes.

Get the perfect shot every time with Manual Focus Check Live view
Make every photo picture perfect with clear, detailed full-resolution previews on the a450's high-resolution LCD screen. Manual Focus Check Live View lets you check your images are composed with pin-sharp focus, even when you're previewing shots in Live View mode. You can zoom in to see the finest details in close-up on the display. Ideal for taking incredibly detailed and fine macro shots.

Manual Focus Check Live View previews clear, bright full-resolution images on the LCD screen for accurate checking.

Keep still images still with SteadyShot INSIDE™
Great shots can be ruined by camera shake when you're shooting handheld - all the more frustrating if the scene you've photographed is unlikely to be repeated. The solidly built, ergonomic a450 comes with SteadyShot INSIDE™, which uses gyroscopic sensors to deliver 4 stop anti-shake correction without the need to add any special optics. It's so effective, you'll be able to shoot sharp images hand-held at shutter speeds up to 4 stops slower than would otherwise be possible. And because SteadyShot INSIDE™ is actually built into your a450 it provides perfect image stability with any of our range of compatible Alpha lenses.

Using a choice of lenses is the ideal way to get the most out of your new digital SLR. Choose from a full range of compatible lenses from Sony and Carl Zeiss, including wide angle, telephoto, zoom and macro lenses to find the perfect combination for your world.

View your work in stunning HD detail on your HD TV
A major advantage of digital photography is that high quality images can be viewed on a large scale on equally high quality digital screens. If you connect your a450 directly to an HD Ready TV, the new HDMI output allows you to view your shots in spectacular HD on the big screen. If your TV is a BRAVIA® which supports PhotoTV HD, you can experience even more lifelike full HD images, bursting with detail and realistic colours. Just use your BRAVIA® remote control to navigate through them easily. And when you want to store or transfer your photos safely, the a450 is fully compatible with both Memory Stick Pro Duo (MS Pro Duo) cards and Secure Digital (SD) cards so you can share thousands of high quality images with friends and family.

After years of using a good wet film SLR and months of procastination, finally took the plunge and bought the Sony A450Y DSLR. Delivered quickly as promissed, with all the extras as one consignment. The camera is all I was looking for, an entry level (on the upper end) DSLR with two very good lenses. The camera is comfortable to hold, not heavy but solid in the hand and easy to use. Am very pleased with buying this product, recommend it to anyone looking to progress photography as a hobby.
