Sony Alpha A900 – the world’s first full-frame 24.6 Megapixel DSLR camera is now officially official, and the price tag of this super high-res camera is $3,000!
As mentioned the Sony A900 features the world’s first ever 24.6 effective megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor, which is equivalent to a 35mm film frame, making it able to deliver extraordinary image detail and wide dynamic range. The full frame feature is definitely great for serious photo shooters, now you’re able to capture all the previously lost detail by capturing 100% of the coverage of photos visible in the viewfinder.
The Sony A900 is also the first full-frame shooter that features SteadyShot INSIDE™, which is a feature that enhances in-body optical stabilisation system, offers up to 4.0 steps anti-shake performance. Some other goodies are a 100k shutter cycle, a 3-inch 921,000-dot LCD screen, and a 5FPS burst, up to 12 shots in RAW.
There is a new Intelligent Preview function which simulates the effect of White Balance, D-Range Optimiser and exposure level on the LCD screen without actually taking a picture. Even though you mess up with the previously preset settings, just a confirmation on the camera, the new setting will be used for taking your next picture.
