    Bring your subjects closer. Shoot beautiful scenery, action-packed sporting events and detailed close-ups with the included wide-angle telephoto SAL-16105 16-105mm Zoom lens on your brand-new Sony a (alpha) DSLR-A700 camera.

    12.24 MP Exmor Imaging Sensor - A newly designed APS-C size CMOS imager with on-chip noise-canceling before and after A/D conversion provides over 12 million pixels, drawing out the full image description power of the a (alpha) DSLR-A700's high-performance lenses and providing spectacular detail for making big prints. Advanced on-sensor A/D conversion yields rich tonal reproduction with high signal-to-noise ratio.

    Professional Lenses and Accessories - The a (alpha) DSLR-A700 accepts a superb array of precision optics, including new Sony wide-aperture zoom lenses that perform brilliantly over a broad range of focal lengths, Sony G Series lenses with advanced motorized autofocusing, amazingly bright Carl Zeiss T* coated lenses, and over 16 million Minolta a-mount lenses sold worldwide -- plus professional-quality flash units and system accessories to expand your creative horizons.

    Super SteadyShot Image Stabilization - Built-in technology moves the image sensor in response to camera shake, enabling every lens to benefit from automatic blur reduction -- and provides an advantage of up to 4.0 shutter speed steps to sharpen images in lower light, for hand-held shots that would normally require a tripod.

    Bionz Image Processor - At the heart of the a (alpha) DSLR-A700 DSLR camera is the advanced Sony Bionz Image Processor, using hardware-based Large Scale Integrated (LSI) circuitry that improves camera response time, screens out noise before RAW data conversion, handles Dynamic Range Optimization processing and prolongs battery life.

    Dynamic Range Optimizer - To recover details in dark or bright areas of the picture, the a (alpha) DSLR-A700 provides multiple levels of Dynamic Range Optimization: Standard mode, to improve shadow detail using standard gamma curves; Advanced Auto mode, allowing you to select any of 5 DRO correction levels, or DRO Advanced Bracketing, that automatically takes three shots at different DRO levels with a single shutter press.

    Continuous 5 Frames-Per-Second Advance at 12.24 MP - The high-speed processing power of its Bionz engine, a quick-response coreless motor to drive the shutter, and dual mirror stoppers to prevent mirror bounce -- they all enable the a (alpha) DSLR-A700 to capture action more effectively at either 5 or 3 frames per second, even shooting at full 12.24 MP resolution. You can also shoot continuously to the limit of available memory in JPEG Fine and Standard modes.

    Advanced Pentaprism Viewfinder - With a bright focusing matte, an optical glass prism and glass lenses that prevent ghosts inside the finder, the a (alpha) DSLR-A700's viewfinder image makes it easier to see your subject, compose your shot and adjust focus manually.

    Eye-Start Autofocus System - The a (alpha) DSLR-A700 begins its precision autofocus adjustments the moment you bring your eye to the viewfinder -- so you'll be ready to catch the perfect moment.

    11-Point Center Dual Cross AF Sensor - A newly developed Sony AutoFocus system with a large f2.8 sensor improves your ability to frame the subject and capture moving subjects with greater focusing precision -- and a focus drive clutch lets you switch seamlessly between auto and manual focusing by pressing a simple button.

    Super-Accurate Exposure Control - A 40-segment honeycomb sensing system provides multi-pattern measuring for superior exposure control accuracy in a wide range of lighting conditions.

    Simple Camera Control Menus - Even with all its high-tech features, the a (alpha) DSLR-A700 is amazingly simple to operate -- and a quick press of the Function (Fn) button switches the LCD display from standard menu information to a new Quick Navigation screen for camera setup via joystick and forward-back controls. The menus are easy and intuitive -- and memory function lets you save and recall personalized camera settings.

    Creative Custom Settings - The a (alpha) DSLR-A700 is designed to bring out your creativity with a wide range of auto preference settings, including four basic image styles (Standard, Vivid, Neutral and Adobe RGB) and three style-box memory settings for quick setup in special events like weddings and competitive sports.

    Easy-to-Use Exposure Mode Dial - The a (alpha) DSLR-A700's top-mounted dial gives you quick access to Program Auto, Aperture priority, Shutter-speed priority, Manual and full Auto exposure setting modes -- as well as six scene selection modes that optimize camera focus, exposure, brightness, contrast and other settings for Portrait, Landscape, Macro, Sports Action, Sunset and Night View/Portrait scenes.

    Quick Setting Recall - The C button allows you to make changes more quickly by calling up Creative Style settings, Exposure compensation, Flash compensation and many more operating modes and camera functions.

    Stamina Power - To give you confidence for long shooting sessions in the field, the a (alpha) DSLR-A700 can take up to 650 shots3 on a fully charged NP-FM500H InfoLithium battery -- with indication in percentage of about how much battery power remains.

    Built-In Flash - The a (alpha) DSLR-A700 flip-up flash covers a wide focal range, synchronizes at 1/250 sec., supports red-eye reduction and slow flash features as well as manual flash mode to set flash intensity. A wireless flash signal is available for external flash synchronization.

    Anti-Dust Technology - Changing lenses in a DSLR can allow dust to enter the camera -- so to help keep the CMOS imager cleaner for better pictures, the a (alpha) DSLR-A700 utilizes both static-free anti-dust coating on the CCD filter and anti-dust vibration that automatically shakes the CCD to dislodge dust each time the camera is shut off.

    Rugged Magnesium Alloy Body - The a (alpha) DSLR-A700 is built to very high standards of durability and performance -- so you can shoot on location in difficult conditions with confidence that your equipment can handle the challenge.

    XtraFine 3.0-inch LCD Screen with 921k Pixels - With almost 1 MP performance, it's like having a high-resolution photo viewer built into your camera -- and the a (alpha) DSLR-A700's amazing photo-quality screen displays sharp, bright images even outdoors with a wide viewing angle so you can share photos more easily.

    PhotoTV HD Viewing with HDMI Output - The a (alpha) DSLR-A700 provides direct HDMI output to your Bravia HDTV and other compatible HDTV screens, so you can view and share photos in breathtaking clarity and detail. You can choose between standard 3:2 and widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio -- and with new Bravia HDTV models, photos are automatically optimized in sharpness, gradation and color reproduction for HD display.

    Wireless Remote Control - For shooting as well as viewing convenience, Sony supplies a multi-function wireless remote control with the a (alpha) DSLR-A700 -- allowing you to control HDTV photo viewing and trip the shutter by remote to put yourself in the picture.

    Versatile Recording Formats - Images can be captured in RAW, cRAW (optimized for fast action), RAW+JPEG and three JPEG modes (Extra Fine, Fine and Standard), for greater versatility in every digital photo application.

    Powerful Supplied Software - The a (alpha) DSLR-A700 comes with a powerful RAW conversion and image management system and newly developed RAW software that gives you the power to handle large volumes of RAW data while taking full advantage of the sophisticated imaging capabilities of the a (alpha) DSLR-A700.

    Dual Media Options - For image capture with optional media you may already own, the a (alpha) DSLR-A700 has built-in slots for both CompactFlash Type I/II media and Memory Stick Duo media or high-capacity Memory Stick PRO Duo media.

    Sony 16-105mm f/3.5-5.6 Wide-Range Zoom Lens - Bring your subjects closer. Shoot beautiful scenery, action-packed sporting events and detailed close-ups with this wide-angle telephoto lens

    Get into the action. Designed to take advantage of APS-size CCD imagers like the Exmor sensor of the Sony a(alpha) DSLR-A700 camera, this amazingly compact premium zoom lens provides superior all-around performance. Its 35mm-equivalent range of 24mm wide-angle to 157.5mm telephoto is perfect for capturing faraway subjects, sports events, dramatic landscapes and intimate close-ups.

    Internal Focusing System - Internal lens elements move, so the overall length does not change -- creating a lens that focuses more quickly and doesn?t alter its balance.

    Sophisticated Multi-Element Design - 16 lens elements in 13 groups correct visual aberrations across the entire zoom range and help reduce weight.

    ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass - ED Glass lens elements minimize flare and greatly reduce chromatic aberration, giving you sharp, clear shots even at full telephoto extension.

    Circular Aperture - Because aperture blades form a near circle at the wide openings used for low-light shots, spot-light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect.

    Comments about Sony Alpha DSLR-A700 P Camera w/16-105 Zoom Lens:

    Bought this camera because I owned the Minolta Maxxum 5 and already owned several lenses that would fit this one. Economical in that respect. This camera met all of my expectations and then some. I use this primarily for family photos and nature shots and all I can say is excellent resolution even from long distances using the 18-200 sony lense.

    No complaints other than wish this model had the automatic popup flash.

    Comments about Sony Alpha DSLR-A700 P Camera w/16-105 Zoom Lens:

    Sony did it! This is a supperb Dig. Camera. I got a Sony lens 18-250 and it is great. I do not have to buy to lenses like the competitors. The 5 fps is not as fast as the Nikon 6.5 fps but for a ordinary person I do not need the extra 1.5 fps. I compare the photos under the same conditions, similar lenses etc and Sony gave the best colors between Canon 40D & Nikon D300. The dpi of the 3" LCD is supperb! I just wish that one can take pictures thru the LCD like the Canon 40D.
