The SLTA35K incorporates Sony's exclusive Translucent Mirror Technology, which replaces the mirror box used in conventional SLR cameras. Although almost stunningly simple and straightforward, this is a profound shift in technological approach that enables SLR-class, high-speed, high-precision, TTL phase-detection autofocusing while using the main sensor for live view shooting and while shooting movies.
It also makes it possible to achieve - in an ultra-compact body - high-speed autofocusing during live view and movie shooting, high-speed continuous shooting and other features that have been difficult to realize on SLR cameras of the past.

In my opinion with this camera (SLT-A35K ) Sony has taken one step forward and two steps backwards as far as one important feature is concerned. Why did Sony take Tilt/swivel 3Ã¢â‚¬ï¿½ LCD screen feature away from this camera? You improved from Alpha 33 and took away the useful feature making it not attractive when compared with CanonT3i or Nikon D5100. I would have preferred Alpha 35 due to affordable price compare to other entry level DSLRs, but due to the lack of swivel LCD screen I have changed my mind, this is just my opinion.
