Sony's latest high-performance digital SLR, the α900 will be available in Singapore from end October 2008. Equipped with a 24.6-megapixel 35mm full-frame size CMOS sensor Exmor, the α900 is the world’s highest resolution full-frame DSLR.

Other notable features of the α900 include the SteadyShot INSIDE and the new dual BIONZ image processing engines.

SteadyShot INSIDE is a body-integrated anti-shake system which will allow photographers to capture sharp images with shutter speeds up to 2.5 to 4 stops slower than would otherwise be possible despite the larger and heavier sensor.

The BIONZ image processing engines enable the α900 to deliver the fastest image processing possible as both processing engines work in parallel to process the high amount of image data delivered from the 24.6-megapixel sensor.

The α900 also sports a full-size optical viewfinder, a dual-cross 9-point AF Sensor System and Intelligent Preview function, which allows users to capture a shot into the internal camera memory, and simulate the effect of various camera settings on it, such as exposure, white balance and D-Range Optimizer.
