Sony 24MP CCD in Pro SLR

Sony at today's press conference for the PMA photography show confirmed that its 24.8-megapixel photo sensor is destined for a future pro digital SLR camera. The news ends concerns that the sensor would be used only for scientific use and is also accompanied by very early details of the camera itself. Sony has already developed a version of its in-house Super SteadyShot image stabilization to automatically sensor-shift and counter blurring. The new model should also be part of the Alpha line rather than a new model and so should share many features, potentially including those from the new A300 series.

No precise release timeframe is available for the full-frame SLR, though Sony vows to at a minimum announce the camera before the end of the year and may debut the unit at Germany's Photokina expo, which begins in late September. Its price is likely to rise well above the $1,300 price for the current A700 body-only model and may allow room for one or more additional mid-grade cameras.
