Sony Alpha SLT-A35

 

The Alpha SLT-A35 is the latest Sony camera to use translucent mirror technology, and delivers speedy autofocus and fast continuous shooting.

Super fast AF, 5fps/7fps continuous shooting, Very good image quality

Electronic Viewfinder has its limitations, Feels a bit plastic, Tele-Zoom (7fps) mode is JPEG only

Sony Alpha SLT-A35

 

The Sony SLT-A35 reworks the A33 model -which we reviewed and raved about in September 2010- by adding a new sensor and trimming back on some design traits for a yet more cost-effective camera. As well as expanding the Single Lens Translucent (SLT)...

Great image quality, super-fast autofocus system, 1080i HD movie with impressive continuous autofocus

Electronic viewfinder performance not for everyone, 16:9 screen aspect ratio (no tilt-angle motion available)

The A35 digs its heels in to try and put the SLT format on the map. And with its 16.2-megapixel sensor it’s well on the way to doing just that. Indeed the A35 is a solid performing budget camera that produces fantastic images and holds its own against...

Sony Alpha 35 review

 

Lightweight Sony SLT camera packed with innovative features

Responsive full-time AF ; Simple control layout ; Fast continuous shooting ; 1080i HD movies ; Manual controls

Fixed LCD ; JPEGs a little soft ; EVF a touch low-contrast

The Sony Alpha A35 is the latest launch to join the manufacturer's innovative Single Lens Translucent (SLT) camera line-up, debuting a number of new technologies that look set to turn the heads of first-time entry-level buyers and upgraders alike.

Sony Alpha SLT-A35 review

 

The best way to think of the Sony Alpha SLT-A35 is by picturing it half-way between a digital SLR camera like the Canon EOS 600D and a mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera like the Olympus E-P3, because it has a ‘pellicle' mirror — it can focus as...

The Sony Alpha A35 is a viable alternative for its entry-level Canon EOS 600D and Nikon D3100 competitors. It doesn’t have any special surprises in picture quality or usability, although we think the build quality of the bundled lens isn’t great and...

Sony Alpha 35 review

 

In essence, there is little new to talk about here as the release of the Alpha 35 is more about the repositioning of the Sony's SLT range than fresh technology.However, the refined sensor is particularly capable of resolving detail and performs well in...

Sony Alpha SLT-A35 translucent mirror camera

 

Review Sony's Alpha SLT-35 expands on its translucent mirror camera models that offer similar handling to a DSLR and compatibility with its A mount Alpha range of lenses. The catch with this magic mirror tech is that to keep things compact, you end up...

Given the current street price of the Sony SLT-A35, it's a real bargain and a camera suitable for both beginners and enthusiast photographers. If kitted out with better (and pricier) optics such as the Sony's Carl Zeiss options [24], then I daresy this...

Sony A35 review

 

We review the Sony A35, Sony's DSLT with a fixed translucent mirror

The creative options are an acquired taste, but when used in the right shooting situations are capable of giving very interesting results and are definitely worth trying out. The autofocus deserves a special mention as the LiveView is very good, while...

TIPA Camera Test Online: Sony SLT-A35

 

The Sony A35 is the newest model of Sony's SLT camera series with a fixed translucent mirror system. The camera offers a resolution of 16 MP, a high resolution ELV and LCD system, very fast AF system and Full HD video capabilities.

very fast AF system (because of real AF sensor instead of contrast metering of CSC systems) ; integrated stabilizer system for all lens systems ; high resolution LCD ; Full HD video in AVCHD format

disappointing results in resolution tests ; missing swivel LCD
