Summary of Sony SLT-A55VL
Introducing the Sony α55 – the revolutionary new ultra-compact interchangeable-lens digital cameras powered by Translucent Mirror Technology. It offers the lightning-quick speed and precision you need to \\\'focus between the moments\\\'. And it does it on a full-time basis, whether you\\\'re shooting high-resolution still photos or Full HD movies. Now, at last, the ultimate in interchangeable lens digital camera speed and performance can be yours. The high-resolution Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor assures beautiful image quality and background defocusing during both still-photo and movie shooting. Exmor technology cuts noise while signals are converted to digital form. The result? Flawlessly beautiful images and videos. Translucent Mirror Technology doesn\\\'t just enable full-time phase-detection AF for photos - it gives you the same speed and precision for Full HD movie shooting, too. The LCD screen tilts up or down for comfortable viewing in different shooting positions. It’s really useful if you’re not holding the camera close to your eye: for example shooting above a crowd or crouching down for an interesting viewpoint. With a built-in GPS (Global Positioning System) that can tag images with the geographical coordinates of the location where they were taken. It can also be used to accurately record the time at which an image was taken, and GPS Assist data can be pre-entered to speed geotagging.
