Sony A450 released and official

Sony has just released its A450 DSLR. Sony has had a notorious past of having its new, upcoming models leaked: we’ve speculated on the Sony A450 earlier today, as well as earlier in December,

The Sony Alpha 450 comes in below the A500. It features the same APS-C 14.2 MP CMOS sensor as the A55o, although without the latter’s Live View ability as well as the tilt and flip LCD screen, although it does have SteadyShot INSIDE (Sony’s body-integrated image stabilisation). Instead, it has a 2.6″ (6.7cm) display, the same as the A230. Similarly, it has the same role that the A230 does in the A3XX range, except with better ergonomics and a larger battery (from the A5XX series). The reduced features help increase battery life to over 1000 shots (standard test methods). It does not feature a video mode.

Specifications are as below:

  • 14.2 megapixels
  • 2.7-inch LCD
  • 95 percent field of view (for optical viewfinder)
  • 1,050-shot battery life (according to CIPA when using optical viewfinder)
  • Maximum 7fps burst mode or 5fps continuous mode
  • Sensor-shift image stabilizer
  • Memory Stick PRO Duo and SD/SDHC compatible
  • Pricing and availability TBA (although will be under $1000 USD, RRP)
