Sony Alpha A300 announcement clippings


The DSLR-A300 model produces images with fine detail, rich tonality and vibrant color due to its APS-C CCD image sensors and BIONZ processing engine. To aid shooting in low light, image stabilization enables shutter speeds 2.5 to 3.5 steps slower than otherwise possible, with every compatible Minolta Maxxum® and Sony a lens.

High sensitivity operation at ISO 1600 and 3200 and very low noise are made possible by the user-selectable high-ISO noise reduction features. Sony's D-Range Optimizer delivers suitable tonality and exposures with rich shadow and highlight detail, even under high contrast situations.
