Let’s skip about a powerful 16MP Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor, the latest Bionz processor, and 15-point AF system that lead this new Sony Alpha Translucent mirror camera, SLT-A57, to be able to do 12 fps shooting with full-time continuous AF and full HD video at vary rate, 60i, 60p and 24p frame rate. As not a professional, I love to talk more about the world’s first technology in this camera, Auto Portrait Framing.
The Auto Portrait Framing assists a non-professional photographer like me to create pro-style portraits for both portrait and landscape orientation. I’m not sure how this new technology works, but according to Sony, it uses face detection and the compositional “rule of thirds” to do the magic. It’s not only about creating, the Alpha 57 still keeps the original images beside the manipulated images. So, you can compare between two of them as the measurement of your shooting skill.
To help you more, this new DSLR camera also brings a 100% coverage high-resolution Tru-Finder, Clear Image Zoom, and Sony’s Pixel Super Resolution technology to provide you top grade resolution without any blur in easy ways, even you are not a professional photographer, like me.
Fashioned in 132.1(W) x 97.5(H) x 80.7(D)mm and 539g (body only) with sleek black design, Sony Alpha SLT-A57 Translucent Mirror camera is going to hit US market in April 2012, in MSRP $700 for body only, and MSRP $800 with an 18-55mm kit zoom lens. Did I mention HDMI, USB, memory card slot, and a built-up flash?
