Sony’s Upcoming A99 Flagship Camera From Every Angle

We’re a couple of days away from Sony’s official announcement of its new flagship single lens translucent full-frame camera, the A99, and all the leaked pieces are starting to come together. These new leaked photographs, first published by sonyalpharumors, shows the new camera from all the standard press shot angles.

The back of the camera features a 3-inch LCD screen that tilts and swivels:

Initial reports stated that the camera would have a built-in flash unit, but more recent rumors are stating that it doesn’t. There does appear to be some kind of line around the hot shoe, though. I guess we’ll know come Wednesday.

As a refresher, here’s the list of specs that we shared earlier:

The camera features a 24.3 megapixel full frame CMOS sensor and Sony’s Single-Lens Translucent (SLT) technology.

Other specs include 14-bit RAW images, 10 frame per second continuous shooting, an ISO range of 100-25,600 (expandable down to 50), 102 autofocus points (11 cross type), a Dual Phase detection system featuring phase pixels on the sensor, shutter speed from 1/8000s to 30s, shutter lag of 0.05s, a shutter rated for 200,000 actuations, a 2.36 million dot OLED viewfinder, in-body image stabilization, a 3-inch tilt-able LCD screen, a built-in flash, a built-in stereo mic, 1080/60p video recording, and HDR mode.

It’s designed to compete as a pro camera with all the heavyweight full frame DSLRs on the market today. The camera will reportedly cost somewhere around $2,800, so you’ll be able to choose between one of these babies, or the upcoming full-frame RX1 compact camera

    I am quite excited for this and thinking about jumping off the Nikon ship to go here. The D800 didn’t do it for me. The D4 is too much – so anxious to hear what they say in a couple days.

    I think anyone who shoots Nikon (me) has an obligation to appreciate Sony. Nikon and Sony have been working together on sensor technology for a while now and nothing but good things have come from it. Unless you really like their SLT technology or need a high burst rate…stay with Nikon and wait for the D600.

    This looks amazing. Too bad about the ISO shoe, iISO is superior in all aspects. I will go back to Sony one day when I have money to spare.
