As appears previous information leak from Sony about new DSLR cameras was definitely true. And now we are certain that the name of the new amateur DSLR body that should replace current Alpha A100 is Sony Alpha A700. Same as few week ago, when SonyStyle Canada had forgot to hide mini site for new DSC-H3 ultra zoom digital camera. Now administrators of the Sony UK official site failed to hide mini site for the next amateur DSLR body. Of course it was up just for few hours but again that was more then enough for information the go around the globe. Currently that part of the site is inaccessible, but we have a screen shots of the next A700 dSLR body and full now official specifications.
It is definite now that it will have 12.4 CMOS sensor, BIONZ image processor, 3 inch diagonal 921,000 pixel LCD, ISO sensitivity up to ISO3200 ( boost to ISO 6400 in “expanded mode” ). Also new body will have auto focus in11 points, and wireless flash support as the predecessor Alpha A100. Next generation of the Super SteadyShot in body optical stabilization and anti dust ultrasonic cleaner are prepared. New A700 supports Compact Flash memory cards as the Sony’s memory sticks, and now they have separated slots. List of the additional equipment is not small, Sony announced vertical battery grip ( booster ) and many new lenses.
For now there are no informations about the price for new Alpha A700 body.
