" Alpha 55 and Alpha 33 carry the latest technology from Sony. Equipped with Traslucent Mirror technology, present a variety of new functions that were previously quite difficult to be presented on a DSLR camera," said Danu Sagoro, Product Marketing Sony Alpha Digital Imaging in Media Gathering event, in Taman Impian Jaya Ancol, North Jakarta, Wednesday (23/02/2011).
This product is replacing a mirror box which is used in conventional digital SLR cameras with a mirror box that contains a translucent mirror, so no longer needed a mirror that opens the lid as used in DSLR cameras today. In other words, the object can be recorded by image sensor and auto focus sensor without having to wait for the mirror lifted every pressing the camera shutter.
With this technology, users can capture an object moving with recording speed = ten frames per second (Sony Alpha 55) and seven frames per second (Sony Alpha 33) digital camera.
Sony Alpha 55 and Alpha 33 uses APS Exmor HD CMOS sensor as the image sensor. It can capture images up to 16.2 megapixels at Sony Alpha 55 and 14.2 -megapixel on Sony Alpha 33 Digital Camera.
Sony Alpha 55 and Alpha 33 DSLR camera is also equipped with AUTO+ facility where the camera can analyze the object and shooting conditions. So photographers need not fear getting the picture that under exposure or over exposure.
