PC Magazine

A DSLR With Mass Appeal

12 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Sony’s new α57 is aimed at serious enthusiasts who are more interested in the outcome than the process. The camera delivers some high-powered DSLR features in a package that’s intuitive enough for less-experienced shooters. And at a print-worthy 16.1-megapixels, it won’t be fighting for supremacy only in Facebook photo galleries. Start with the LCD viewfinder.

DP Review
18 March 2012
  • Summary: The A57 combines a high-quality 16 MP sensor, easy access to shooting parameters, and class-leading video performance. And does this while providing an equivalent shooting experience, whether composing images via the EVF or rear LCD.
  • Pros: Very good Raw file output up through ISO 6400, Dynamic range at the top of its class, High magnification EVF with comprehensive information display, Manual focus 'Peaking' option for both stills and video modes, 10fps shooting in full resolution mode, Class-leading 1080/60p video resolution with manual exposure control, Useful function menu provides access to shooting parameters, Two customizeable buttons (AEL and ISO) with wide range of options, Fully articulated rea...
  • Cons: Mediocre JPEG processing with mushy detail and visible artifacts, LCD viewfinder (vs OLED panel in other Sony models), AF not compatible with manual exposure control in video mode, No live view in 8 or 10 fps continuous shooting modes makes accurate panning very difficult, Counter-intuitive setting of aperture in manual mode, Awkward to navigate between stills and movie playback modes, Main menu system is tedious to navigate, Clear Image Zoom offers no IQ benefits ove...

Sony Alpha 57 review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • Summary: It is a year and a half since the Sony Alpha 55 hit the market, and the Sony Alpha 57 is more of a refresh than a new model. However, there are enough features to separate it from the entry-level Alpha 35, particularly the angled LCD screen, improved EVF and wider ISO range. The Alpha 57 stands up well against the competition. In several areas its features are class-leading at this price point, and the camera is very capable of producing crisp images with bold colours.

The Sony Alpha A57 is a mid-level camera that can produce fantastic results

Good Gear Guide.au
21 August 2012
  • Summary: The Sony Alpha SLT-A57Y is an interchangeable lens camera that's well worth considering. It's a camera that can capture wonderfully clear and vibrant images without you having to fiddle around with the settings too much. We think you can have a lot of fun with it, especially if you go for the twin lens kit that has the 55-200mm lens in it.
  • Pros: Image clarity, Quick performance, Good high ISO capability, Not hard to use
  • Cons: Battery life not great, Some chromatic aberration

Sony Alpha 57 (SLT-A57)

Absolut Photo
28 December 2012
  • Excerpt: L'Alpha 57 est un appareil bien né, tout simplement parce que tout ce qu'il embarque a déjà fait ses preuves : - le capteur CMOS de 16 MP (déjà mis à profit par Sony et par d'autres marques) qui offre un excellent compromis résolution et gestion du bruit en haute sensibilité ; rappelons que ce capteur est stabilisé (ce qui stabilise tous les objectifs...).
  • Pros: Bon rapport qualité - prix, Qualité d'image, Rafales et AF continu en vidéo
  • Cons: Visée électronique améliorable
