  • Excerpt: The Sony SLT A57 DSLR is a tidy still snapper with its 16.1 megapixel sensor, but it also pulls double duty as an HD camcorder: it can suck down full HD 1080p resolution video. But is it a jack of all trades and master of none? Check out our group test in the video above to find out.

  • Summary: The Sony Alpha SLT-A57 really delivers when paired with the 18-55mm kit lens. With bright, vibrant colours, plenty of fine detail and super-fast underlying hardware, it's easy to get great shots in practically any condition.
  • Cons: A little pricey.

Sony Alpha A57 review

What Digital Camera

  • Summary: Aside from its more enthusiast-focused design, the A57 can't be said to be a significant update over the A55 it replaces. True, this isn't entirely a bad thing, as it shares many of that camera's positive attributes, from its snappy focusing performance and reliable image and video quality, to the handful of features which make it as enjoyable to use as the camera is capable.

  • Excerpt: Key features The Sony a57 represents what could be the next generation of DSLRs. It is in fact an SLT (single lens translucent) camera, so it uses a fixed translucent mirror that allows extremely fast shooting speeds. The a57 features a 16.1MP sensor powered by the Bionz processor, and the ISO range covers an impressive 100-16,000. The 3in LCD screen on the back is extremely clear thanks to a whopping 9216k dots.
