Sony A550

Sony has announced the new Sony Alpha A500 and A550. The A500 features a 12.3 megapixel CMOS sensor, the A550 features a 14.2 megapixel sensor, and both cameras feature a 3″ tilting screen (921k pixels on the A550, 230k on the A500), and 5fps shooting (upto 7fps on the A550), live view, steadyshot inside (anti-shake sensor), Auto HDR, HDMI out, and will be available from the end of October:

“At the heart of both cameras is a new, unique to Sony, Exmor™ CMOS sensor that ensures crisp low-noise images, packed with fine detail and vibrant colours. Sharing powerful on-chip noise reduction techniques with the full-frame DSLR- α900, this advanced sensor works with processing algorithms handled by the newly developed high-speed BIONZ™ engine to deliver premium images plus razor-sharp shooting responses. Dramatically reduced picture noise now allows super-sensitive shooting at up to ISO12800, achieving great results when shooting handheld in challenging situations like candlelit interiors”
