Sony launches new flagship camera at Rs 249,990

New Delhi:Sony India on Thursday launched a new flagship camera ‘a99 II’ — an ‘A-mount’ interchangeable lens camera for high resolution and continuous shooting at high-frame rates.

Consumers can buy ‘a99 II’ camera at select Sony Centres and other electronic and digital imaging stores across the country at Rs 249,990, the company said in a statement.

The “a99 II” with 42.4MP resolution is eight per cent smaller than the original a99 and has a newly-designed grip, magnesium alloy body, dual SD card slot and other upgrades that improve both hold and operation.

“The camera has been designed without an optical low-pass filter to allow the finest natural details and textures to be captured with depth and realism and the photographer can select compressed or uncompressed RAW files, as required,” the company said.

The new camera combines the hybrid phase detection auto-focus (AF) system with exclusive Sony A-mount features such as Translucent Mirror Technology (TMT) and is capable of recording high-quality footage at 100 Mbps for 4K recording.

The phase detection auto-focus system is capable of ‘full-time AF’ and is the first implementation of 4D Focus in the full-frame “a” series.
