Sony's new camera so sensitive, moonlit pics are a snap

TOKYO -- Sony has unveiled the world's most sensitive interchangeable-lens digital camera in the U.S. at the National Association of Broadcasters' NAB Show in Las Vegas.

     A new full-frame image sensor lets the alpha7S shoot pictures with a sensitivity set as high as ISO 102,400 in regular use, and an ultrahigh sensitivity of up to ISO 409,600 if a little noise is tolerated.

     As Sony puts it, you can snap a vivid, blur-free picture under the light of the moon without a tripod.

     The company has yet to reveal pricing or a release date. Word on the street is that the alpha7S will be available within the year with a price tag upwards of 200,000 yen ($1,920).
