  • Excerpt: I would give the A99 a full five stars if it were $2,000, or if it offered better high ISO IQ and a faster frame rate. I really do love this camera. Unlike other cameras I've owned I appreciate it more every time I use it. I resisted buying the A99 because (1) I really like my A77 also, (2) I really like my Canon 1D4 and (3) I was upset with Sony for not offering more than a 6 fps burst rate in a $2800 camera when the lesser A77 - with the ...

Affordable Full Frame? This is it!

Old Photo, Adorama

  • Excerpt: Everything I want and need except that it will not tether to my lap top. Shame! Sony do something about that.<br /><br />Otherwise an amazing camera in every way! Flash great. Battery grip supplies needed power for video.<br /><br />So it only is good for 200,000 shots. Can buy two replacements with the money I saved by not buying a 400,000 C---- or N----.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD

Probably greatest Sony camera ever made but not perfect

Adam Brown, Amazon
16 January 2014
  • Summary: I've been shooting with this camera for a couple months now. Been shooting Sony dSLRs/dSLTs ever since their first model, the Sony A100. Before that, I shot with Minolta film SLRs. In the last couple years, I really refined my photography hobby, spent more time and developed more skill. I had been shooting with the very good A55, but decided it was time to step up to a more capable camera. For the most part, I have not been disappointed in the A99.

  • 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.

A Superior Still Camera

AlphaBitBill, Adorama
2 July 2013
  • Excerpt: This is my first full-frame DSLR. I do more videography than photography, but my camcorders have not been as good as I'd like for the occasional supplemental still photography. Hence this purchase, with the 28 - 75 mm SAM f/2.8 zoom lens and HVL-F43 flash.<br /><br />I posted a simple comparison of what this camera can do vs. a prosumer Panasonic TM-900K on YouTube at http: //www.youtube.com/watch?
  • Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet, Tilt /Swivel LCD

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).

Great Full Frame Camera

Shane F. Macintyre, Amazon
3 April 2013
  • Summary: The Sony a99 is a great camera! This was an upgrade from an a700. I love the evf and would like to have it on all my cameras! The camera is very ergonomic and focus peaking is a Godsend for my old eyes. It would get a 5 if the buffer was bigger.
