The Sony DSLR-A900 World's highest resolution DSLR 24.6-megapixel full frame
Exmor CMOS image sensor. 100% coverage glass pentaprism viewfinder. High-speed
9-point AF and SteadyShot INSIDE. The DSLR-A900, delivers more options than ever
for total creative freedom.
The A900 features a 35mm full frame
Exmor CMOS image sensor that is approximately 2.35x larger than the APS-C
sized sensors found in many DSLR cameras. The result is a larger capture
area, improved wide angle performance, and tighter depth of field
control. In addition, its 24.6MP resolution maximizes the resolving
power of your existing lenses and delivers sharper, higher contrast
A large, ultra bright glass pentaprism
viewfinder provides you with amazing clarity and high optical
performance for tighter focus control. In addition, it offers viewfinder
magnification of 0.74x, allowing you to see an image nearer to its
actual size, as well as 100% field coverage for detailed framing work.
The A900 provides direct HDMI output to
your BRAVIA HDTV and other compatible HDTV screens, so you can view and
share photos in breathtaking clarity and detail. Additionally, PhotoTV
HD capable BRAVIA HDTVs will automatically optimize display settings,
such as sharpness, gradation, and color to display your images in a way
that more closely matches the natural look of printed photographs.
The body of the A900 is entirely covered
in a die-cast magnesium alloy shell, providing a rugged feel and
A supplied InfoLITHIUM lithium-ion
battery provides long-lasting performance, allowing you to capture
approximately 880 images on a single charge.
A 40-segment multi-pattern metering
system provides superior exposure control accuracy in a wide range of
In addition to digitizing analog
signals, the full frame Exmor CMOS image sensor also performs both
analog and digital noise reduction. This on-chip dual noise reduction
process aids in the high speed transfer of noiseless digital signals.
In addition to full frame image capture,
the A900 can also crop images to the APS-C size format, allowing the use
of lenses designed specifically for APS-C sized image sensors.
AF Micro Adjustment allows you to fine
tune focus for various lenses6. The A900 can store adjusted focus values
for up to thirty lenses.
The A900 allows you to bracket up to
three exposures in 2.0EV-step increments.
Remote Camera Control allows you to
control your A900 from your PC.
The A900 harnesses the power of Dual
BIONZ image processing engines to deliver true-to-life images with
ultra-low noise and continuous shooting at up to 5 fps.
Review your images in stunning detail on
the 3.0" Xtra Fine LCD display (921k pixels). With photo-quality
resolution of 270ppi (pixels per inch), you can identify any necessary
focus or exposure corrections at the time of capture, rather than
discovering them when you transfer your images to your PC.
The A900 features an impressive design
befitting a premium flagship model. The simple form eschews
ornamentation and exudes competence, while the iconic pentaprism design
element conveys superior optical performance. The A900 also incorporates
a distinctive cinnabar-colored ring circling the lens mount - a design
element shared across every Sony α; (alpha) DSLR camera.
Changing lenses in a DSLR can allow dust
to enter the camera so to help keep the CMOS imager cleaner for better
pictures, the Sony α; (alpha) DSLR-A900 utilizes both static-free
anti-dust coating on the imager's filter and anti-dust vibration that
automatically shakes the sensor to dislodge dust each time the camera is
The A900 features a dual card slots and
accepts both CompactFlash and Memory Stick Duo Media (sold separately).
Analog-to-digital signal conversion is
performed by the full frame Exmor CMOS image sensor.
Updated Image Data Converter SR3
software improves your workflow with faster RAW file processing and
improved image correction.
The A900 includes a built-in eyepiece
shutter which can be shut to help shield against entering light and
prevent exposure errors.
Mirror Lockup Mode raises the main
mirror before exposure to reduce vibration at shutter release, resulting
in better performance during long exposure shots of fireworks, stars,
The Image Data Lightbox software
included with your Sony α; (alpha) DSLR helps you browse, rate, and
compare your images, making it easier to select your favorites for
Concentrate on your shooting and make
adjustments on the fly thanks to convenient button placement. The ISO
and White Balance adjustment buttons are located on the top of the
camera body near the shutter button for easy thumb operation.
Building on years of expertise, Sony has
developed the world's first body-integrated image stabilization solution
for a full frame DSLR. The SteadyShot INSIDE in-camera image stabilizer
actually shifts the image sensor to compensate for camera shake without
sacrificing image quality. The compensation effect is equal to as many
as four shutter speed steps, giving you more creative freedom when
shooting in low light. And, because it is integrated into the camera
body, SteadyShot INSIDE technology works with all compatible α (alpha)
The Intelligent Preview function allows
you to see the effects of manual adjustments to exposure value, shutter
speed, aperture, Dynamic Range Optimizer and White Balance before you
take the shot, so you can determine the optimum settings before you take
the shot, instead of losing time to trial-and-error.
A high-performance autofocus system uses
9 focus points (center dual-cross type) and 10 assist points to deliver
fast and precise focusing.
Sealed viewfinder optics and rubber
gasket surrounds on all buttons, dials, and switches help resist the
entry of dust and moisture into the camera, and allow for safe use in a
wide range of environments.
The shutter mechanism in the A900 is
designed to achieve shutter speeds up to 1/8000 seconds and proven for
100,000 cycle operation.
To recover details in dark or bright
areas of the image, the A900 provides multiple levels of Dynamic Range
Optimization: Standard mode, to improve shadow detail using standard
gamma curves; Advanced Auto mode, allowing you to select any of 5 DRO
correction levels, or DRO Advanced Bracketing, which automatically takes
three shots at different DRO levels with a single shutter press.
The autofocus system in the A900
features a highly accurate F2.8 sensor for improved focus precision when
using lenses faster than F2.8.
Viewfinder magnification of 0.74x lets
you see your subjects nearer to actual size.
User-replaceable focusing screens for
shooting specific subject types can be purchased as optional
Sony drew upon its extensive experience
designing and building heavy professional broadcasting camcorders to
develop a rubberized grip that allows you to hold the A900 with comfort
Sony Picture Motion Browser (PMB) software provides a simple and intuitive way to sort and archive your image collection, as well as perform common editing operations and output to data disc or the Web.
