Sony is expanding its (Alpha) digital SLR system with the introduction of the
DSLR-A700 camera, which is aimed at photo enthusiasts or serious photo hobbyists.
The new model features advanced imaging technologies and ultra-responsive operation,
as well as a lightweight, dust- and moisture-resistant, magnesium alloy construction
common to enthusiast-class D-SLR cameras.


Like Sony's mainstream DSLR-A100 model, the new A700 unit incorporates
Super SteadyShot Inside image stabilization in the camera body and is compatible
with most Minolta Maxxum mount lenses in addition to Sony lenses. The camera's
new 12.2-megapixel Exmor CMOS sensor conducts analog-to-digital (A/D) signal
conversion and dual noise reduction right on the sensor itself. Noise reduction
is applied to analog signals before A/D conversion and the resulting digital
signals are then subject to a second round of noise reduction.
