The Sony Alpha SLT-A55 is a different kind of DSLR. It features Sony’s new translucent mirror technology that allows for speedy and steady auto-focus, even in movie mode – a feature lacking on traditional DSLRs. The camera impressed DigitalCameraReview with its blazing speed, good image quality, solid video capture and pro-level continuous shooting. While it may be slow to power and have a short battery life, the complaints do not go much further than that.
