Sony Alpha SLT-A55 Digital Camera Body {16.2 M/P} Description


Sony SLT-A55 digital camera employs Translucent Mirror Technology. The Translucent Mirror Technology offers high-speed shooting by splitting the optical pathway between the main image sensor and an independent phase-detecton AF sensor while providing a comprehensive design that enables the camera to be smaller.  The integrated Exmor APS HD CMOS technology delivers high resolution with no compromise in low-light conditions. Additionaly, Sony SLT-A55 Digital Camera concerts 16.2-megapixels APS HD CMOS sensor, high ISO sensitivity up to an expandable 25,600, up to 10fps continuous shooting, built-in GPS, 1080i HD movies, 15-point phase-detection AF system, Quick AF Live View, a 3" LCD, a Tru-Finder Electronic Viewfinder with 100% coverage, 3D Sweep Panoramas, Auto HDR and Multi-frame Noise Reduction.



It's all about speed and precision. Capture the decisive moment with the α55V, Sony's top-of-the-line Translucent Mirror Technology DSLR. Now you can focus and shoot simultaneously for fast, precise performance. And because the mirror never moves, the time needed to raise and lower the mirror is eliminated. This all helps continuous shooting up to 10 frames per second, complete with continuous auto focus. Auto focus is also visibly faster in Live View and HD Movie modes. There's also built-in GPS photo tagging that lets you map your memories on your compatible computer.
