Sony redefines the DSLR with award-winning Translucent Mirror Technology in its SLT (Single-Lens Translucent) camera design. It has a translucent mirror fixed in position to reduce blackout time between shots, while its innovative design also enables SLT cameras to be smaller, lighter and faster than conventional DSLR cameras.
Or select the regular DSLR camera design, with a reflex mirror that flips up and down to capture an image. You'll find creativity in all your shots with Sony's α (pronounced alpha) interchangeable lenses and accessories.
With a sleeker form factor than regular DSLRs, A-mount SLT cameras with Translucent Mirror Technology enable high-speed, high precision, phase detection AF for stills and movies. An exclusive Sony technology, Translucent Mirror Technology is blazingly fast, so it's easy to capture life's greatest moments in perfect focus.
A key benefit of Translucent Mirror Technology is the ability to enjoy sharp, focused images and movies at all times. It has a Continuous Advance Priority AE mode that also lets you shoot high-speed sequences up to 10 frames per second (fps). With Continuous Auto-Focus, A-mount SLT cameras enable responsive action with continued clarity while zoomed in, or with moving subjects.
Unlike regular DSLRs, the α SLT camera offers fast, accurate and continuous focus on moving subjects using Phase-Detection AF, to easily create professional-looking movies. A benefit of Sony’s Translucent Mirror Technology, this allows tracking of subjects on the move without delay and greater clarity, in Full HD.
