Sony Ads Reveal 24 Megapixel Full Frame DSLR

Sony A900 DSLR
Sony's revealed the A900 DSLR, which features a full frame 24.6 megapixel Exmor CMOS sensor, via an ill timed ad. It will also features Sony's Dual BIONZ image processing engine, a 3-inch Hybrid LCD with "Intelligent Preview," 5 fps continuous shooting, and Sony's SteadyShot image stabilization. There is no price or release date mentioned in the Ad but all should come clear as we approach Photokina.

Sony Announce 24.81 Megapixel Sensor

Sony have just announced a new full size 35mm based CMOS sensor featuring 24.81 effective megapixels. The new sensor is aimed at future professional-level DSLRs. Sony's patented "Column-Parallel A/D Conversion Technique" is used in the new sensor and is said to achieve high signal to noise ratios even while shooting at the 6.3 - 12-bit frames per second. This new chip looks to be aimed squarely at Pros who are considering a future purchase of something like the Canon 1Ds MkIII. It'll be interesting to see who uses this chip in their cameras.
