Sony unveils the A37
By PA News Team
25 May 2012 10:54The SLT-A37 is the latest Single Lens Translucent (SLT) camera from Sony, and is set to replace the A35.
It represents the more affordable end of Sony’s intermediate level camera range, sitting behind the more expensive and fuller featured A57 and A65 with the A77 taking up position as the flagship of the range.
With a light-path that’s different from regular D-SLRs these SLTs don’t have a viewfinder and a mirror lock-up, but instead feature a translucent mirror with an electronic viewfinder. The upshot of this is faster burst mode shooting, continuous phase detection AF and an uninterrupted live image preview, all because the mirror doesn’t need to move in order to expose the sensor and record the photo. Even when you’re shooting HD video you’ll be able to use the 3-cross 15-point AF system, with tracking autofocus. Because of the translucent mirror, instead of the optical viewfinder you’d find on a regular D-SLR you’ll instead find Sony’s Tru-Finder viewfinder, an electronic viewfinder with a clear 1440k-dot resolution and 100% field of view, the same that on the recently launched SLT-A57.
The A37 offers a 16.1Mp APS-C sized CMOS sensor and BIONZ image processor that allows Full HD video at 50i/25p and an ISO range of 100-16,000. The camera also comes with Sony’s SteadyShot Inside sensor-shift image stabilisation to cut down on the effects of camera shake and allow sharper images in low light conditions.
