Sony Adds To DSLR Range With A77 And A65

Having announced a couple of new NEX models already this

morning, Sony has also added to its DSLR range with the entry-level A65 and

premium A77.

First up is the A77, the high-end model which could just

pack enough features to get those still using the predecessor, the A700, to upgrade.

As with the NEX-7, the A77 features a newly-designed 24.3

megapixel Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor which is combined with an enhanced BIONZ processor

for better low-noise image quality.

It also claims the title of world’s fastest continuous

shooting mode being able to capture full resolution images at 12fps with

full-time phase-detection autofocus.

Also included is a newly-developed 19-point autofocus system

with 11 cross-type sensors and the Tracking Focus feature maintains focus on a

moving subject even if it’s momentarily obscured by another object.

Again like the NEX-7, the A77 comes with an integrated XGA

OLED viewfinder, delivering 2359k resolution directly to your eye.

The LCD screen is “3-way adjustable,” allowing you to twist

and swivel the screen to let you see what you’re shooting even while pointing the

camera at yourself (see below).

The A77 can also shoot Full HD video at 50p (progressive)

frame rates, another first for consumer-oriented APS-C cameras.

The a77 will be available from October and will cost £1,150 for

the body only, or £1,600 with the new 16-50mm lens. The new 16-50mm lens will

be around £250 on its own, while the A77 battery grip will be priced around



Sony A65

The A65 is Sony’s entry-level DSLR model and for those

looking to get into the DSLR game, this is certainly a model worth considering.

The A65 holds onto a lot of the features of its bigger

brother including the new OLED electronic viewfinder, 24.3 megapixel CMOS APS-C

sensor, and 1080 / 60p AVCHD video capture.

Also present is Sony’s Translucent Mirror Technology,

Tracking Focus, and an ISO range of 100-16,000, though it’s not expandable down to

50 like the A77.

Sony A65

The A65 continuous shooting mode drops to 10fps at full

resolution, the autofocus system is 15-point with 3 cross-type sensors and the 3in

LCD screen is only two-way adjustable.

We are still waiting to hear from Sony regarding pricing but

the entry-level A65 will also be available in October.
