Sony's latest SLT (Single-Lens Translucent) camera, the A99, has been detailed by two prominent camera blogs. Both Sony Alpha Rumors and Photo Rumors have posted a spec sheet for the high-end camera, revealing a 24.3-megapixel full-frame sensor, an ISO range of 100-25,600, 1/8000 maximum shutter speed, 10fps continuous shooting, 14-bit RAW output, and a 102-point AF system. The A99 will also have auto HDR capture out of the box, as well as the ability shoot Full HD video at 60fps and output it through a dedicated HDMI port. Because of its translucent mirror, the A99 will also be able to use phase detection autofocus during video recording, continuous shooting mode, and when in "live view."
Apparently due to be unveiled on September 12th, the A99 will be Sony's first full-frame camera since the A850 was released three years ago, and its first since switching to a translucent mirror system. Other specs revealed include a 2360k dot XGA OLED viewfinder (as found in the NEX-7 and A77), and a standard 3-inch 921k dot LCD screen. The A99 will reportedly be available towards the end of October at an unspecified price.
