We take a look at Sony's 24.6MP full-frame flagship digital SLR

The Sony Alpha A900 is an immensely impressive camera, equalling or surpassing its few rivals in almost every criterion with a combination of superb build quality, blistering performance and class-leading image quality. It would suit any advanced...

Sony DSLR-A900 review

 

Sony gets serious about DSLR with this full frame prosumer flagship. Should Nikon and Canon be looking over their shoulders?

Sony’s finest DSLR by a mile, and a prosumer camera that can hold its own against the big rivals

Sony Alpha A900 review

 

Is having the highest ever megapixel count enough?

Takes fantastic pictures ; Tough build ; Good features

On the pricey side ; Limited lens

Sony's done an extraordinary job in getting such a good full-frame DSLR to the market so quickly. But while its Canon and Nikon rivals ooze class, the A900 still has a few rough edges and Sony's yet to prove it can match Nikon's and Canon's pro lenses....

Sony Alpha A900 review

 

Blocky in appearance, weather-sealed against the elements, what the Sony Alpha A900 lacks in prettiness it makes up for in specification, to a point. What's notably missing, apart from an incorporated flash, is the ability to utilise the rear 3in, 920k...

All in all, the Sony Alpha A900 is a very capable heavyweight option for those not already wedded to either Canon or Nikon.

Sony Alpha DSLR-A900 (Body Only) review

 

Sony makes a point of not calling this a "professional" camera, instead referring to it as the "flagship" model of its dSLR line. However, it's priced like a pro model, and its full-frame competitors--the Nikon D700 and the Canon EOS 5D Mark II --are...

High resolution; in-body image stabilization; nice viewfinder; great accessory system.

Can't lock focus-point selector; Intelligent Preview button much too easy to hit accidentally; some subpar aspects of performance; no Live View; loud mirror.

A good first try at a pro-level camera, the Sony Alpha DSLR-A900 has the high resolution but unfortunately lacks some of the performance and usability you expect from a model in its price range.

The a900 is the flagship model in the existing Alpha series of digital SLRs. The camera mount – the unifying design theme for the series – is boldly integrated with the pentaprism and balances with the body to create an iconic design. The grip has a...
