We have recently reviewed the Sony NEX-3, which is a Micro Four Third systems camera, trying to get DSLR-like quality at a much lower price. Now Sony has introduced yet another camera - SLT-A55V of the Alpha series supporting all Alpha-mount (A-mount) lenses, to fill the gap between the NEX and its professional DSLR cameras. While the DSLRs feature a bulky moving pentaprism, this camera features a fixed translucent mirror (or Pellicle mirror), hence the name Single Lens Translucent or SLT. Capable of 16.2 MP RAW image capture and fast 10 fps continuous shooting speeds, with Full HD video capture, GPS tagging, 15-point autofocus and 3D Sweep Panorama, this camera may give DSLRs a run for their money. Check out the review to find out more.
While the bundle is good, Sony should have included an SD memory card, but seems to have left it to be bought separately. Also, it would have been better to include an HDMI cable to connect to an HDTV.
