The Sony Alpha SLT-A57 (A57) utilizes Sony’s Translucent Mirror Technology, and it is equipped with a 16.1-megapixel Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor as well as the most recent generation of the BIONZ engine. As a result, it is able to produce images that are incredibly accurate, while also being incredibly fast and exhibiting jaw-droppingly low levels of noise across a wide ISO range of 100-16,000.

By directing incoming light to both the CMOS image sensor and the AF sensor at the same time, the cutting-edge design of the Translucent Mirror makes it possible to maintain full-time continuous AF during the shooting of still images and videos.

The SLT-A57 (A57) is equipped with High-Speed Shooting at a rate of 12 frames per second and can record 1920 x 1080 Full HD video at frame rates of 60p, 60i, or 24p. In addition to that, it comes with a variety of creative modes, such as Auto Portrait Framing, which gives anyone who is interested in photography the opportunity to take pictures that are amazingly crisp and colorful with every single snap.

A high-resolution Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder with 1.44 million dots, a 3.0-inch Xtra Fine Tilt-able LCD screen, an Intelligent Auto mode, and in-camera Picture Effect modes are some of the other attractions of this camera.
