Sony A57 camera, great camera at a great price

by A57 owner on 5/13/2013

For the low price of this camera I got on sale, I do not think any other camera can touch it's value and performance. Many features included are also being used on Sony's higher end cameras and video is very good. Very user friendly. I read about Minolta AF Lens (classic Maxxum line) being compatible and picked up 4 lenses to fill all situations- ridiculously low prices for the phenominal pictures/video quality they produce! Comparable or even beating some modern lenses..besides a loud AF motor

Product Overview

Experience the Alpha SLT-A57, Sony's newest addition to their Alpha DSLR series. As the successor to the SLT-A55, the new SLT-A57 includes advanced features such as translucent mirror technology, a 16.1 MP resolution and BIONZ processor, 12 fps continuous shooting, Full HD movie at 60p (50p), and the world's first Auto Portrait Framing. Standard zoom lenses become like telephoto zoom lenses thanks to Clear Image Zoom, which realizes a high-resolution look even when shooting with digital zoom making it dramatically easier to get the best shot.

Shoot like you mean it with top-of-the-line Translucent Mirror Technology that makes it possible to focus and shoot simultaneously for fast, precise performance, while continuous auto focus makes the shots you're getting at up to 10 fps worthy of the inspirational moments they capture. Switch it up Tele-zoom High Speed mode and get up to an even faster 12 fps with continuous AF. Achieve stunning stills that can be blown-up to beautifully frame worthy enlargements thanks to the 16.1MP Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor. Choose to record precious memories in either 1080/60p/24p AVCHD format or a more web-friendly 1080/30p MP4 format and relive the moment for years to come. Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder makes it easy to view setting adjustments in real time, resulting in better shot composition and better photos.
