About Sony SLT-A55

Capture the decisive moment with the alpha 55V, Sony's top-of-the-line Translucent Mirror Technology DSLR. Now you can focus and shoot simultaneously for fast, precise performance. And because the mirror never moves, the time needed to raise and lower the mirror is eliminated. This all helps continuous shooting up to 10 frames per second, complete with continuous auto focus. Auto focus is also visibly faster in Live View and HD Movie modes. There's also built-in GPS photo tagging that lets you map your memories on your compatible computer.

The long-telephoto Sony zoom lens provides high magnification and a broad 14x zooming range in compact, lightweight design that makes it easy to carry-and its 35mm-equivalent range of 27mm wide-angle to 375mm telephoto excels at capturing faraway objects, outdoor performances, complex scenery and crisp close-ups.
