  • Excerpt: My wife offered me the opportunity to upgrade my camera in the coming months.  I've been a bit infatuated with the idea of full frame with full frame prices becoming more accessible, at least aside from Sony dSLRs.  For better or worse, my lens collection keeps me pretty faithful to Sony.  The A7/7r don't appeal to me, as I have no interest in adapters or less of In-body-image-stabilization. So I rented the A99 for a week.

Good camera!

  • Summary: Good câmera! Got Many great results at high ISO. It takes a while to boot, but nothing that let me nervous. Comfortable, fast focus, good controls (programmable). Until now, I found much better than my other Sony (SLT-A77).

Technically advanced features in a lightweight capable body.

  • Summary: Just did an extensive photoshoot using the A99 for the first time. Very impressed with the EVF, the rotating, angled capable LCD, the improvement in ISO noise over the A850 and the size and weight. Some photos did ahow missed AF (used the CZ 16-35) but all in all a very favorable expeience. The image quality on my D600 gets the nod by a nose but the white balance on the Sony is spot,on (this is not the ca on the Nikon). Quite satisfied.

uniquely different, and pro ready

  • Summary: This is an impressive, yet interesting, camera from Sony. I had my very first digital camera from Sony many years back, but I tried Canon DSLR for a couple of years, and then I settled for Nikon DSLRs. Sony has some innovative technology that no other camera companies have incorporated in their systems yet (including Cannon and Nikon).

  • Excerpt: I am very excited about possibly buying the Sony SLT-A99, but am wondering if the electronic viewfinder is the future of how camera's should work, or is it a deterrent? Somehow I wonder how much better my Wedding photography might have turned out with an electronic viewfinder. I find that guests and the bridal party expect the photographer to capture candid moments, inside and outside immediately.

Awesome Camera

  • Excerpt: Live view with near instantaneous shutter release great for stop-action. Amazing low light performance with noise reduction post processing. Training: Sony diverts to few 3rd party YouTube clips. I am learning using the kit manual and trial-and-error.
  • Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Tilt /Swivel LCD
  • Cons: Availability Of Lenses, Availability Of Training, Noisy At High ISO

Best Sony SLT yet

Adorama
15 January 2013
  • Excerpt: This is clearly the best SLT from Sony so far, but it is not without flaws. High ISO noise is more pronounced than on other, comparable current generation cameras.<br />There is also an issue with the &quot;new&quot; ISO hotshoe where it won't allow you to sync with studio or third party flashes above 1/160th to 1/200th of a second (although the manual clearly states that 1/250th is supported).
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Tilt /Swivel LCD
  • Cons: Noisy At High ISO, Short Battery Life

  • Excerpt: Lots of high expectations for this first FF camera from Sony in 4 years . . . Does it live up? Well, based on my brief and limited experience with this (a week plus with my own camera) mostly yes (and in low light - YES), but there are some issues and puzzling design decisions, esp. around the lack of a decent hi-speed buffer for continuous shooting.
