Sony Alpha 35 (SLT-A35K)

PC Magazine
3 January 2012
  • Conclusion: The Alpha 35 is a fast-shooting entry-level D-SLR that is capable of grabbing photos in subpar lighting conditions. It is held back by a so-so electronic viewfinder, which makes it a tough sell compared to D-SLRs with traditional optical finders.
  • Pros: Shoots at five frames per second. Fast autofocus. Compact for a D-SLR. Good high ISO performance.
  • Cons: So-so LCD EVF. Limited video settings. Just-ok kit lens. Proprietary hot shoe.

  • Summary: The Sony SLT-A35 is an excellent all-around performer that gets all the basic stuff right and is fun to shoot with. The feature set is great for a camera at this price point, and if you can live without an optical viewfinder, the SLT-A35 is a very good alternative to more traditional DSLRs.
  • Pros: Reliably good image quality at lower sensitivities, Versatile and capable (for its class) 15-point AF system, Accurate metering and focus, Excellent LCD and good EVF, with efficient automatic switch, Compact dimensions, Auto+ mode makes the various continuous shooting modes available to novices, ...
  • Cons: Higher RAW noise levels than some competitors, Comparatively strong noise reduction at higher ISOs, Little control over high ISO noise reduction in JPEG mode ('auto' or 'weak'), Limited control in 7 fps continuous shooting and movie modes, No live view in 7 fps continuous shooting mode makes pann...

Camera Test: Sony Alpha SLT-A35

Pop Photo
29 September 2011
  • Summary: The A35 continues to show the benefits of a semitransparent mirror in a DSLR. For the average shooter, the speedy and solid continuous AF delivers what most people look for when they step up to a DSLR.

Sony Alpha 35 review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • Summary: 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 low light, while the new tele-zoom high-speed...

  • Excerpt: Last year, Sony broke the trend of traditional D-SLR design and added two unique cameras to its Alpha family. Although they resembled the shape, look and functions of a standard D-SLR, the a33 and a55 featured ‘˜translucent mirror technology' meaning that without a conventional moving mirror behind...

  • Excerpt: The fixed mirror employs what Sony calls its ‘Translucent Mirror Technology’ which basically means it’s semi-silvered so some light passes through it and some light is reflected. In a conventional SLR , the reflected light is directed to the viewfinder eyepiece and, in many cases, to the exposure...
