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.
  • 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.
  • 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
15 December 2012
  • 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.

  • Conclusion: Éste es el mejor equipo fotográfico que ha fabricado Sony hasta la fecha, tiene el equilibrio perfecto entre tecnología, diseño y precisión.

Sistema de enfoque automático doble para potenciar la velocidad y precisión a la que captura las imágenes su espejo translúcido.

  • 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.

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

kaddr.com
4 October 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 пово...
  • 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 съе...

  • 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.
  • 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
