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.

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.
