Sony Alpha A99 Review: One Exceptional Camera

Digital Camera Review
21 December 2012
  • Excerpt: 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.

Sony A99 review

What Digital Camera
1 November 2012
  • Summary: The A99 is a decidedly different proposition for the professional user than what we've seen previously. It clearly feels like a camera which has evolved from models beneath it in its range, rather than one designed specifically to satisfy a professional audience. Regardless of whether the SLT system is as relevant here as it is on cheaper Alpha models, it's strange to find a full complement of professional options awkwardly blended with a range of semi-manual and novelty...

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.

  • 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.

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

  • Excerpt: Der er ikke meget, man ikke kan lide ved A99. Kameraet er rettet mod fotografer, som stiller store krav til funktionalitet og billedkvalitet. Og her får man virkelig både i pose og i sæk. Bortset fra fraværet af trådløs tilslutning er der ikke meget, der mangler i kameraet. Som også leverer billedkvalitet af ypperste klasse.
  • Pros: Ekstrem opløsning og skarphed, Rigtig gode støj-egenskaber ved høj ISO, Højt funktionsniveau, Integreret billedstabilisator, GPS, OLED-søger, Solid kvalitet
  • Cons: Unødvendig navigering mellem still- og videoafspilning, Smalt fokusområde og upræcis fokussporing, Relativt høj pris
