    Exclamation SONYs Video DSLR(s)


    a little late to the party, but now all those who bolted to the Canon 7D ... can get on the return bus and adopt the just-introduced 14.2 MP SONY α560 (<- click on this) as their Optical View Finder (OVF) movie-making career move. The 16MP version, the α580 will be released soon.

    But what really has the world abuzz is the Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) SLT-α33V and SLT-α55V Translucent Mirror Technology DSLRs ... which locks the sensor safely and dust-free behind a NON-MOVING optically semipermeable (pellicle) mirror and allow it to shoot at 10-frames-per-second. A staggering improvement in sports shooting for a very, very reasonable price. Almost everyone can nail "little Johnny" as he crosses the finish line ... and blow by the competition! With an ISO 25600 ... this is a speed enhancement like never before. And, of course, internally stabilized 1080/60i HD video thrown in.

    Along with all the Alpha lenses, you can also couple it with the lower-cost 85mm f/2.8 DT ($249) and the 35mm f/1.8 DT ($199) ... you can get back on the train and significantly lower the price per image that you always wanted.

    No other manufacturer is offering such variety in your DSLR photographic solution. Nearly as many cameras as there are Minolta/SONY lenses to mount on them.

    Welcome back, guys. No harm, no foul.

    BTW: You may want to consider SIZE ... if it is important:

    And I thought holding a Canon XT was a struggle. I feel a need for a Vertical Grip, don't you?

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.
