This Sony Alpha SLT-A99 DSLR Camera Kit with Battery Grip and Flash combines the full-frame 24.3MP sensor of the SLT-A99 with a vertical battery grip and external flash unit. This creates a base camera system for taking high-quality photographs and video.

The SLT-A99's 24.3MP Exmor full-frame CMOS sensor allows you to capture high resolution imagery with an ISO range of 100 to 25,600 with the additional ability to capture full HD 1920x1080 video at up to 60 frames per second. Also, by using Sony's Translucent Mirror technology, the autofocus system is able to continuously monitor the image and ensure the subject is in focus. Additionally, an internal SteadyShot Image Stabilization allows for 2.5-4.5 stops of compensation with any Sony Alpha lens.

On the back of the camera is a 3.0" TruBlack LCD screen. It has a 1,288,000-dot resolution for reviewing images in addition to Live View and video shooting. It can also tilt up to 180° and rotate up to 270°. This works in tandem with the 2,359K-dot resolution OLED electronic viewfinder. The viewfinder provides a bright display for shooting in any condition.

The A99 utilizes a 1,200-zone evaluative metering system for balanced exposures and an advanced BIONZ image processing engine for creating your images. This processing combined with a quiet multi-control dial, built-in GPS, and features like Auto HDR allow for many customized shooting options. It also enables continuous shooting at up to 6 frames per second.

The Sony HVL-F60M External Flash features a guide number of 197' at ISO 100 in the 105mm position. It also features a continuous LED light for video shooting. This flash uses a dot-matrix LCD screen to access controls and shooting modes, such as high-speed sync and stroboscopic lighting. It includes a built-in diffuser and a bounce sheet along with an additional tungsten filter and stand.

The vertical battery grip features room for two batteries in addition to the one held in the camera; this triples the effective shooting time. It also features a set of controls and shutter release in the vertical position for comfortable shooting in portrait mode. Additionally, it is weather-sealed for protection from moisture and dust.

    Comments about Sony Alpha SLT-A99 DSLR Camera Kit with Battery Grip and Flash:

    This camera captures great images and the features tick all the bells-n-whistles boxes, and I couldn't be happier with how well the camera performs in low light conditions. The EVF is even better than the reviews I've read; Sony has offered a game-changer with this technology.
    That said, make no mistake... paying full retail for each component can be painful! I would never have paid full retail for the grip or flash by themselves, which is unfortunate since they are really fantastic products. Bundling in kit-form is the way to go.

    Had my A99v for about 2'weeks now

    By MikeT

    from Idaho

    Comments about Sony Alpha SLT-A99 DSLR Camera Kit with Battery Grip and Flash:

    I am not a pro or a beginner - some where in between - I focus on landscape and night photography and have found the A99v more than satisfactory in both areas. Planning an outdoor shoot in Yellowstone Park this winter. Will let you know how the cold weather shooting goes. And how the camera reacts to the freezing temperatures. As of now no complaints and very happy with the A99.

    Comments about Sony Alpha SLT-A99 DSLR Camera Kit with Battery Grip and Flash:

    I am an avid amateur photographer. When I recently upgraded to a FF I went with a 6D package from Costco, I had battery issues from the start. A friend of mine recently purchased the Sony A99 (professional photographer) and highly recommended it, all I can say is this takes the most amazing photos and the Minolta lenses available on e-bay are surprisingly excellent. I did invest in the Sony 70-400GII which while heavy takes great pictures inside and out, even in low light. I will never regret switching from Canon to Sony.

      Comments about Sony Alpha SLT-A99 DSLR Camera Kit with Battery Grip and Flash:

      The Sony A99 SLT is a step forward in technology. The translucent mirror technology eliminates mirror movement to increases fps and in body stabilization eliminates the need for lens based stabilization. Note when using Sony A99 with a lens that has its own stabilization it is best to turn the lens stabilization off.
      The camera sits well in my hand and is very balanced, and the shutter release is quiet and smooth. The A99 comes with a standard hot shoe for flash mount but does not have a built in flip up flash. This is truly a pro camera and competes if nt beats its Canon and nikon competitors. There is also a large selection of lens to choose from built by Sony and Sigma. I love everything about this camera!!!

      Loved my A77. This A99 is even better. The Grip and the Flash bundled for free made this irresistible. EVF is my favorite feature. I laugh at the Canikons chimping next to me at photo events. Sony is coming up with some really amazing products and 2014 is going to be their best year yet.
