Sony A55VHZ Specification

Sony A55VHZ Specification
Capture your perfect moments with the world’s first Translucent Mirror Technology™ DSLR enabling
simultaneous focusing and capture. Continuous shooting is an amazing 10 frames per second,
complete with continuous auto focus. Auto focus is also visibly faster in Live View and HD Movie
Translucent Mirror Technology™
Other DSLRs can shoot. Or they can
focus with the speed and precision of
Phase Detection AF. They cannot do
both at once. The SLT-A55 is the world’s
first DSLR with Translucent Mirror
Technology™ that directs light to both
the image sensor and the Phase
Detection AF sensor simultaneously.
10 frames per second continuous
The translucent mirror makes it far easier
to capture the decisive soccer kick or
your baby at her absolute cutest. The
Sony® SLT-A55V camera shoots full,
16.2 MP resolution pictures at up to 10
fps while maintaining continuous auto
focus and auto exposure.
Quick AF for Full HD Movie1 Capture
When most DSLRs shoot video, their
Contrast AF is slow and visibly “hunts”
for focus. The Quick AF Full HD Movie
1 retains the same fast, precise Phase
Detection you enjoy for still images. It’s
a decisive advantage for tracking fastmoving subjects and a major benefit of
Translucent Mirror Technology™ .
16.2 megapixel resolution
You get incredible detail and gorgeous
enlargements. Thanks to the 16.2
megapixel APS-C sensor size and
Sony® Exmor™ APS HD CMOS
technology, the camera achieves high
resolution with no penalty in low-light
sensitivity or sensor noise.
APS-C size HD CMOS image sensor
With 19.5 times the area of the typical
camcorder image sensor7 , APS-C
makes the difference between amateur
and professional-looking video,
delivering an exceptional combination
of high resolution, high sensitivity and
gorgeous, blurred backgrounds.
Sony® Exmor™ technology
Conventional image sensors use only a
handful of analog-to-digital (A/D)
converters, which can slow you down.
The Exmor™ sensor provides more than
4,000 column-parallel A/D converters.
This helps enable continuous shooting
at up to 10 frames per second.
Full HD 1080/60i movies1
This is one of the very few DSLRs with
1080/60i Full HD, exactly the same
resolution and frame rate as most
broadcast and cable HDTV channels.

pictures— beyond the capability of

the picture reduces blur, minimizes noise
and enables extraordinary detail.

than a single exposure can handle—
and more range than photo film.
