First published on: Wednesday, 14 January 2009

The price of most digital cameras trend downwards over time, and the same price drop should occur in the case of the Sony A900 digital SLR camera.

I’m not planning for any scheduled updates, but do check back here from time to time for the latest price on the Alpha A900, body only.

Battery options and accessories for the A900
Before checking out your A900 purchase, decide whether or not you need a second battery and the vertical grip:

  1. Sony NPFM500H Alpha Rechargeable Battery Pack: $46.95

  2. Sony Alpha VG-C90AM Vertical Grip for DSLR-A900 (holds two NPFM500H batteries): $269.88

The Sony A900 is designed to work best with UDMA CF (Compact Flash) cards, and according to Rob Galbraith’s CF Performance Database, the Sony A900 has the fastest write speeds (rated at 35.5MB/s when shooting in RAW mode) of all DSLR cameras (at the time of writing) when mated with a Sandisk Extreme Ducati CF card.

At the time of writing, the four fastest CF cards are SanDisk Extreme Ducati 4GB, SanDisk Extreme IV 2GB, SanDisk Extreme Ducati 8GB and SanDisk Extreme IV 45MB/s Edition 16GB.

Newer, faster and higher-capacity UDMA CF cards are now available. Some examples are Lexar Professional Series UDMA 16 GB 300x, SanDisk 60MB/s Extreme and 90 MB/s Extreme Pro series cards.

Good luck shopping for your A900!
