The Sony Alpha A850 digital SLR is a 24.6 megapixel full-frame DSLR that shares virtually all the major features of the flagship A900. Like its full-frame sibling, the A850 fully exploits the creative possibilities of the Alpha family of lenses that includes premium full-frame optics from Carl Zeiss, plus five high-performance G Lens models. The purity of high-resolution image data captured by the full-frame sensor is optimised by two-stage noise reduction in both analogue and digital domains. Noise reduction is first applied as the full-frame sensor converts light to electronic signals, then the dual BIONZ image engines process large amounts of digital data, applying finely-tuned noise reduction during image processing to deliver pictures with extremely high level of sharpness and minimal noise level.

Main Features of the Sony Alpha a850:

It’s all in the detail
The high-resolution CMOS sensor assures detail-packed pictures with excellent contrast and gorgeous colours. Exmor technology cuts noise while signals are converted to digital form. The result? Flawlessly beautiful images.

Look closely: you’ve never seen anything like it
Don’t miss those vital details. The Xtra Fine LCD screen gives you an incredible view of all your shots, with superb colour reproduction and contrast. It’s ideal for checking correct focus and exposure when you’re reviewing pictures after shooting.

Enjoy a brighter outlook
Take a look through the bright optical viewfinder. You’ll be amazed by an exceptionally clear view of your subject, with 98% field coverage… so what you see is exactly what you shoot.

Control the show in comfort
Connect the camera to your BRAVIA television - then effortlessly control playback functions with your BRAVIA TV’s remote. There’s no need to get up from your favourite chair to enjoy the show in sparkling HD.

Get tough… whatever the weather
It’s all about inner strength. The rugged aluminium chassis is teamed with magnesium alloy body panels for extra strength while keeping weight to a minimum. Vulnerable controls and other sensitive areas are protected from dust and moisture for worry-free outdoor shooting.

Are you eligible for finance?

Applicants must be:

  • Aged 18 years or older from the application date
  • In permanent UK residence for a minimum of three years
  • Fulfil at least one of the following employment criteria:
    • In regular, permanent employment.
    • Retired from regular employment - With a minimum age of 50.
    • Not working through disability.
    • Self-employed.

Note: All applicants will be subject to a credit reference check by the lender.

The approval of your application depends on your financial circumstances and borrowing history. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photo Video act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.

Can I repay early? If so how?

No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.

What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?

Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.

What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?

Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan. You will also receive reminder letters and text at the end of the deferral period to remind you when your first payment is due.
