Sony A99 to push the technology envelope forward

The forthcoming Sony Alpha 99 is expected to be Sony's first full-frame sensor camera that also utilizes the company's single-lens translucent system, according to specs obtained by Sony Alpha Rumors. The new Alpha flagship camera will sport a 24.3-megapixel full-frame sensor with an ISO range of 100-25,600. Additional key features include a 1/8000 maximum shutter speed, 14-bit RAW capability, 10fps continuous shooting and 102-point auto-focus system powered by a new Sony Bionz imaging engine.

The camera will also incorporate a 2360k dots XGA OLED viewfinder along with a 3-inch 921k dots LCD screen. It will be capable of shooting video at 60fps when shooting in 1080p and an auto HDR capability. Its translucent lens also gives it the ability to use phase detection autofocus when shooting video, or when in continuous shooting mode.

Additional technologies built into the A99 by Sony include a new multi-segment low pass filter, photodioxide expansion tech, light concentration tech, selective noise reduction and an ultrasonic anti dust system. Additional accessories to ship with the A99 include a battery grip, flash, remote control and microphone.

The Sony A99 is expected to be unveiled early next month and start shipping in October.
