Sony Alpha SLT-A99V Reviews

Ephotozine reviews the Sony Alpha SLT-A99V and writes;
“Image quality is particularly pleasing with excellent noise performance and focus performance is excellent thanks to the cameras SLT technology, allowing fast focusing for continuous shooting as well as video recording. Another unique feature is AF range control which could be particularly useful for sports or wildlife photographers where the subject is a set distance. Colour, detail, and dynamic range are all excellent with the camera producing great photos straight from the camera.”

Digitalcameraworld reviews the Sony Alpha SLT-A99V and writes;
“Thanks to its full-frame sensor and 24.3 million photosites the A99 can record a lot of detail – especially in raw files – and noise is controlled well. Even images captured at ISO 12,800 look good at sensible printing sizes like A3.”

Expertreviews reviews the Sony Alpha SLT-A99V and writes;
“So far we’ve only been able to shoot a small selection of JPEGs and not make any direct comparisons with rival cameras. It looks like the A99’s noise levels are impressively low but not up to the Canon 5D Mark III’s standards.”
rating: N/A

Photoclassic reviews the Sony Alpha SLT-A99V and writes;
“I have only had a chance to shoot with the camera for about 3 hours but what I have seen so far has been very impressive. Focusing is fast and accurate and exposures are pretty accurate, with a slight tendency to under-expose a little in challenging conditions (which is infinitely better than over-exposing!)”

Digitalcamerainfo reviews the Sony Alpha SLT-A99V and writes;
“We’re also excited about the A99’s emphasis on video. Any manufacturer can claim that its DSLR is positioned for video, but Sony’s new silent control dial is an especially smart addition. Combined with extensive connectivity options and full-time double phase-detection autofocus, the A99 may very well become the new standard for SLR video,”

Imaging-resource reviews the Sony Alpha SLT-A99V and writes;
“the Sony A99 includes a full-frame version of the company’s Translucent Mirror Technology, using a transparent mirror to reflect a small amount of light up to a phase-detect sensor just beneath the Sony logo. This eliminates the traditional moving mirror, allowing for faster frame rates and constant autofocus, rather than the necessarily interrupted focus of other professional SLR systems.”
