New Sony A99 test roundup. Not selling as well as other FF from Nikon and Canon?

Share


Sony A99 test video with different A mount lenses.

Today let’s analyze the image quality of the A99 cameras. As usual keep in mind that the firmware isn’t final yet!

Our reader Michael shared many A99 Jpeg and RAW samples on Dropbox (Click here to download). More  image samples on tweakers, Dcfever. An ISO comparison at Postimage here and here (via Fotozine). Thanks pics with firmware version 0.90 on Flickr. And more pics by our reader Nikola Ovcharski. One more Sony A99 video sample on youtube.

So, now you have plenty of images to get an idea about the A99 quality. I think the camera is great and will be on par with cameras like the Nikon D600 and probably better than the Canon 5DmarkIII. And can’t wait to see how the A99 compares with the RX1 that lacks of the new FF translucent mirror. Anyway, a camera is more than just pixel peeping and the A99 is definitely an amazing camera when it comes to think “hybrid”, still and video in one. But still, the camera isn’t really a hotseller at Amazon US (ranking here). Let’s see in time how successful the A99 will be!

P.S.: Our readers David talked with a Sony manger who said: One more thing, the mentioned about why they use 24 but not 32mp pixel in a99 is the 60p recording, they said they realized that 24M pixel is the best fix in nowadays sensor technology.
