Sony has unveiled its long-promised a700 digital SLR. This 12.24Mp model offers 5fps (frames per second) continuous shooting in RAW mode, a 3in LCD and a maximum ISO of 3,200. Super SteadyShot optical image stabilisation and an exceptionally fast autofocus help prevent blurring.

There's a 16:9 aspect ratio shooting mode, which is ideal for framing landscapes and displaying them on a widescreen TV. Sony has also included an °Æextra fine' option to store better-quality Jpegs and a dust reduction function - handy when switching lenses.
