Sony Announces Translucent Mirror Technology α57 DSLR
Sony has announced the latest A-mount series DSLR with Translucent Mirror Technology: the α57. Successor to the α55, the new camera’s body is manufactured from recycled plastics and the camera chassis contains 10% recycled material. The α57 shoots still images at up to 12 frames per second, boasts a sensitivity range of ISO 100-16,000, features the α65‘s 5-point AF system with three cross sensors, and, like the α65, has an OLED Tru-Finder viewfinder with 1440k dot resolution and a 100% field of view.
The α57 interchangeable lens camera will be available in April for about $700 (model SLT-A57, body only) or about $800 (model SLT-A57K, with an 18-55mm kit zoom lens for $800).
