There's a good chance ripping apart Sony's Alpha A99 isn't on the to-do list of those who own the freshly released $2,800 camera -- even if they are curious about the hardware's guts. Luckily for such inquiring minds, Sony's taken matters into its own hands and torn the DSLR apart. While it's not your conventional play-by-play video teardown, Hirai and Co. came prepared with the camera already split into layers that showcase its major parts such as its magnesium alloy body, 35mm full-frame sensor and main circuit board. For the grand tour of the A99's innards, hit the jump to catch the footage.
