SonySony Alpha 290 digital SLR camera : Sony has recently extended its DSLR assortment with the mirror-less NEX system cameras. For Sony this is a new segment, and if we are to believe the predictions, it is a much promising segment. Manufacturers such as Olympus and Panasonic have included these system cameras a few years ago, and they seem to now be focusing solely on this segment. During the introduction of the Sony NEX-5 and NEX-3 cameras, one of the first questions that were asked of Sony’s CEOs was if the Alpha A-series cameras will be continued. According to Sony, a follow-up of the Sony Alpha will certainly be introduced this year. Quickly rumors have spread about the beginner level model: the Sony Alpha 290.

14 Megapixel Sony Alpha 290 with restyled hand grip
The following information has not yet been officially confirmed by Sony. What is noticeable is that the Sony Alpha 290 has gotten quite a boost in resolution. There is talk of a 14 megapixel image sensor, which is an increase of 40% of the amount of pixels. This is certainly applied marketing, although hardly relevant. Looking at the first image material that has surfaced, we can conclude that the camera is a bit more fine-tuned. The criticized hand grip has been changed into a bit more streamlined variant. Additionally, the Sony Alpha 290 is not equipped with the known Live View function, which was undoubtedly a cost-saving decision.

Still no video in Sony Alpha 290 camera
It is remarkable that the Sony Alpha 290 does not have a video recording function, which is surprising. Especially for a manufacturer that has specialized in camcorders and video techniques for many years, we expect a connection more than the rest of the manufacturers that have already integrated the video function. And actually a connection is the least that we expect; Sony should take an innovative and leading role in this. But as Sony has shown before, Sony only integrates video in a DSLR if it can match the quality requirements that Sony has in mind. As it now appears, this is not yet the case.

Sony Alpha 290 DSLR camera information
There are only a few specifications on which we can focus, but as it appears, the Sony Alpha 290 DSLR camera is a logical successor to the Sony Alpha 230. The standard features have been upgraded; it is a true marketing camera. As soon as we receive more news or the official introduction, we will come back to publish the full product information. The first prices that are named are: Sony Alpha 290 + 18-55mm for 599 Euros. A Sony DSLR A290 with 18-55 and 50-200mm is also in the planning.
