Digital Camera Review
21 December 2012
  • Summary: Sony’s A99 is a formidable entry into the full frame game, and it proves to many that the company will be as aggressive as it needs to be to get to the #1 spot in the camera market over Canon and Nikon. The camera has features that will appeal widely to enthusiasts and professional alike such as AF-D, GPS tracking, an excellent swivel-tilt LCD screen for video, a bright EVF, and relatively simple controls with the exception of the caves of menus.
  • Pros: Great image quality, AF-D is the best tracking system we've seen, Excellent stabilization built-in for video, Fast FPS shooting, Center focusing point is extremely quick, Fairly silent shutter, Amazing EVF
  • Cons: Autofocus is only best in the center, Very short battery life, Slow startup, A tad more smudging at the higher ISOs than we'd like, Deep menus that aren't intuitive at first, No autofocus in manual video mode

Sony A99 Review

What Digital Camera
30 October 2012
  • Summary: A comparison with its two most immediate rivals, Nikon’s D800 and Canon’s EOS 5D Mark III models, shows it to be currently priced a little higher than the latter and significantly higher than the former, although this is largely due to how long each has spent on the market. Purely from the perspective of specification, the D800 offers a higher pixel count as well as a faster start-up time, although it cannot match the A99’s burst rate, nor can it equal the LCD’s handy...
  • Pros: Light body, bright and detailed viewfinder, most flexible LCD on any camera, high level of customisation, general image quality, superb handling, Smart Teleconversion function, high-quality video
  • Cons: Delay in changing exposure settings, slow start up, electronic viewfinder can stagger, 
occasional focus freezing issues, 
unhelpful error messages lead to dead ends in operation

Sony Alpha 99 review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • Summary: On paper the Alpha 99 reads well, and for the best part it is impressive in the hand, too. It is made to a high standard, its LCD screen and viewfinder are easy to use, and there are useful additional accessories available, namely the battery grip that can extend the battery life threefold. Landscape photographers should also appreciate how the fixed mirror reduces camera shake. However, the start-up time can be a hindrance.

13 December 2012
  • Excerpt: The Sony Alpha A99 is Sony's premium full frame Digital SLR and the long awaited update to the Sony Alpha A900 and A850, introducing the SLT (Sony Translucent) technology to full frame, and could very well mark the end of optical viewfinders in Sony Digital SLRs. The Sony Alpha A99 features a 24.3 megapixel full frame CMOS sensor, 6fps continuous shooting, full HD video with continuous AF, and an impressive 2.359million dot OLED electronic viewfinder.
  • Pros: Excellent noise performance, Great image quality and excellent colour, AF range control, Lens AF fine tuning, Large strap, More standard ISO Flash than previous models, Info-Lithium Battery, Built in GPS, OLED viewfinder looks excellent, Continuous AF in videos, Focus Peaking, Electronic level
  • Cons: Doesn't automatically switch between memory card slots, Price compared to competition, Loud shutter sound

Cámara: Sony Alpha 99

parentesis.com
29 September 2014
  • Conclusion: Éste es el mejor equipo fotográfico que ha fabricado Sony hasta la fecha, tiene el equilibrio perfecto entre tecnología, diseño y precisión. Su precio la aleja del alcance de varios perfiles de usuario, pero sin duda quien tenga conocimientos avanzados en materia fotográfica podrá sacarle mucho provecho a sus prestaciones.
  • Pros: Sensor Full Frame de 35 mm con excelentes resultados en condiciones de poca luz. Sistema de enfoque automático doble para potenciar la velocidad y precisión a la que captura las imágenes su espejo translúcido. Sistema de conectividad completo para utilizarse como herramienta de trabajo en un plano 100% profesional. Visor electrónico con tecnología OLED que ofrece colores muy fieles al de la fotografía final.
  • Cons: Al ser de grandes dimensiones es un tanto pesada. Su cuerpo no incluye flash, así que es necesario comprar uno por separado. Los accesorios con los que es compatible la cámara se limitan a los de la misma marca. Pantalla LCD de capacidades limitadas.

  • Excerpt: Trots att den ser ut som en spegelreflex är Alpha99 en SLT-kamera med fast, halvgenomskinlig spegel, elektronisk sökare och en snabb och exakt fasavkännande autofokus som funkar lika bra vid stillbildsfoto som när man filmar

Sony SLT-A99 – Полупрозрачный Sony-стайл или находка для видеографа

kaddr.com
10 April 2013
  • Summary: Констатируя факт, скажу, что Sony сделала очень интересную камеру. В ней сочетаются все лучшие качества предшественницы А900, передовые технологии и скорость младшей SLT-A77, а также «фишки» беззеркальных NEX 'ов.
  • Pros: Высокое качество изображения как в RAW, так и в JPEG., Отличная детализация и цветопередача., Широкий динамический диапазон в RAW., Низкий уровень шума вплоть до iso 3200 для JPEG и до 6400 в для RAW., Хорошая работа системы экспозамера., Качество изготовления и материалы камеры., Прекрасный поворотный дисплей., Высококачественный электронный видоискатель с имитацией экспозиции., Высокая скорость работы., Пятипозиционный джойстик и пять перенастраиваемых кнопок., Внут...
  • Cons: Скорость и цепкость следящего автофокуса не дотягивает до уровня основных конкурентов., Точки автофокуса сгруппированы в центре кадра., Гибридная система автофокуса работает лишь с несколькими объективами., Хотелось бы видеть на служебном дисплее шкалу компенсации экспозиции., При непрерывной съемке более 3 к/с изображение в видоискателе пропадает до очистки буфера., Автофокус не доступен при видеосъемке с ручным управлением экспозицией., Неудобная навигация в меню ка...

Test: Sony Alpha 99 (Profi-DSLR)

CHIP Online
11 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Fazit: Die Sony Alpha 99 überzeugt im Test mit sehr guter Bildqualität und umfangreicher Ausstattung. Scharfer OLED-Sucher, eingebautes GPS-Modul sowie in alle Richtungen schwenkbarer Monitor stimmen glücklich. Besserungsbedarf besteht allerdings bei der moderaten Akkulaufzeit und dem nur durchschnittlich schnellen Tempo.
  • Pros: Hohe Bildqualität, Top-Ausstattung, Schnell, Abgedichtetes Gehäuse
  • Cons: Kein interner Blitz, Detailtreue, Sucher zieht viel Strom
