Sony Alpha SLT-A33

Camera Labs
1 February 2011
  • Summary: The semi-reflective mirror in the SLT cameras allows most of the light to pass through to the main sensor, but crucially reflects a smaller portion upwards to a traditional phase-change autofocus system.
  • Pros: Very fast and continuous AF in Live View and HD movies., High resolution articulated screen and decent EVF., Fast continuous shooting up to 7fps., Multi-frame to reduce noise, increase DR or create panoramas., Continuous AF and stabilisation on entire Alpha lens catalogue.
  • Cons: Some light permanently lost due to semi-reflective mirror., No live image between frames in fast continuous bursts., Modest buffer size: approx 14 best quality JPEGs., Most Alpha mount lenses focus quite audibly in movies., Some will notice rainbow tearing artefacts in viewfinder.

Sony Alpha A33 Review

What Digital Camera
30 September 2010
  • Summary: The A33 undoubtedly opens new doors and Sony’s clear-cut commitment to pushing new technology into the photo market is an interesting angle for a company looking for new approaches to capture today’s demanding audiences.
  • Pros: Super-fast continuous focus burst shooting, phase-detection live-view, excellent 1080i HD movie autofocus
  • Cons: Widescreen ratio LCD, EVF not for everyone, noisy kit lens (video can pick up lens zoom and focus noise)

Sony A33

  • Summary: The Sony A33 turns conventional design on its head to provide what is in many ways a better user experience than traditional DSLRs can achieve, at a price point that Canon and Nikon must be worried about.

  • Excerpt: El mercado de las cámaras digitales se renueva constantemente, pero las mejoras realmente notables que representan una aproximación original a la tecnología D-SLR no abundan
  • Pros: Destaca por su excelente calidad de imagen, sobre todo a baja sensibilidad, Sofisticado sistema de enfoque de 15 puntos, Es una de las que mejor graba vídeo de la comparativa

  • Excerpt: Sony har et spennende kamerautvalg i høst, og for ikke mange ukene siden testet vi Sony NEX-5 , som imponerte oss med en svært god bildekvalitet på tross av et kompakt ytre. Blant nyhetene i høst er også A33 og A55 - dette er begge kameraer som opptrer som et speilreflekskamera, men der speilet ikke...
  • Pros: Bunnsolid lysmåling og automatikk, svært rask seriefoto, rikt på funksjoner, god brukskomfort, flott skjerm, meget god bildekvalitet
  • Cons: Noe kort batterilevetid, intern mikrofon plukker opp støy fra kameraet ved filming
