Sony Reveals Alpha A900 DSLR

Sony’s alpha DSLR-A900, is the company’s first full-frame DSLR, with a whopping 24.6-megapixel CMOS censor and a $2,999 price tag (body only), it’s meant for serious photo enthusiasts and prosumers. Another first: it has the world’s first-ever anti-shake system for a full-frame DSLR, SteadyShot Inside. This proprietary technology is based in the camera body, not the lens, and is optimized to work with Sony and Konica Minolta lenses. Also befitting a full-frame DSLR, its chunky shape, complete with interchangeable grip, will be a throw-back to photographers raised on film. Another neat thing about the design: a mirror box on the inside accommodates both the 100 percent viewing area Live View, as well as the body-integrated image stabilization system, so the camera is smaller than it might otherwise be. Other details about the camera.
