Sony A99 Features
If your budget for a digital SLR isn't around $3,000 USD then you can quickly pass on the Sony A99.
However, if you're looking to maximize your image quality and capture a wide variety of subjects then the Sony A99 features should suit you well.
First, there's the full frame 24 megapixel sensor which has no crop factor — a good thing for landscape and interior photographers.
Pile on top of that built-in image stabilization, a 19-point specialized autofocus system and a very flexible 3 inch LCD screen, and you've got a camera that has versatile written all over it.
Perhaps you're not interested in still images, but are looking for a camera you can use to shoot your next low-budget film.
In this area the A99 also delivers, since it features a Full HD 1080p movie mode with selectable frame rates of 60 and 24 frames per second. The special autofocus system also allows for full-time continuous focus during movie capture, which is helpful if you're dealing with moving subjects.
