Sony unveiled its 2012 line and introduced the Sony SLT-A57, an updated version of its first digital SLR camera with a video viewfinder and EVF, the SLT-A55.
The A57 features the (refurbished) essentials of its predecessor’s spec sheet while also including progressive-scan video, artistic filtering, greatly improved battery life, and a better-crafted finish (on the same level as that of the SLT-A65).
To provide photographers with a broader perspective about mobiles, lenses and cameras, here are links to articles, reviews, and analyses of photographic equipment produced by DxOMark, renown websites, magazines or blogs.
We’ve put the Sony SLT-A57, a digital SLR with electronic viewfinder that incorporates a well-known 16Mpix CMOS ASP-C sensor, through its paces at DxOMark. What progress can we expect? How does it compare with its competitors, both reflex and hybrids? Here are our results.
When I compare Nikon D5100 here with A57, is the Nikon much better. But in comparison on dpreview.com is better A57. Much better in DR and even a little better in ISO performance. Samples from dpreview by ISO 6400 A 67 are nice. What to hell is true now? I decide btw. this two cameras. Which one should i buy?
I was waiting for the score of A57 for so long ))), as I expected A580 is best APS-C Sony camera. What Sony is producing ?! A35,A65,A77,now A57. The question is _ why we all didn`t see any progress after A580 ??? _______________________________ http://photo-wed.blogspot.com/
Why are you surprised? A57 should score 1/2 stop lower than A580 due to SLT mirror taking some of the light. This has been known since 2010.
For this 1/2 stop lower score, SLT offers a lot of other advantages (higher frame rates with AF, AF in video, EVF, lower shutter lag, no mirror blur, etc). I will take all these advantages for 1/2 stop lower score, which isn't even visible untill very high ISO.
A57 have the same iso mark as A55, I have A55&A33, they both are liile noisy even at iso 100, and have to say it is not good, everything alse is great in these cameras. ------------------------------ http://photo-wed.blogspot.com/
flash delay is with native Sony flashes, as Sony is trying to produce everything. Try Metz flashes, I have Metz 50 Af-1 & have no problem from the day one, besides it is much cheaper. Now I`m thinking about upgrading my little A33 to A57, according tests A65 & A77 are much noisy . --------------------------------- http://photo-wed.blogspot.com/
