Sony α35 (SLT-A35)


Features Translucent Mirror Technology for accurate continuous autofocus

Shooting stills or AVCHD™ video, users can enjoy a superbly detailed view on the high-quality 3-inch Xtra Fine LCD™ display. Sony's TruBlack™ technology assures high-contrast images with rich, deep blacks – even when shooting outdoors.

The high-resolution Tru-Finder™ display offers a precision alternative to framing shots on the camera's LCD. Offering an extremely detailed, high contrast image with full 100% field coverage, it's ideal for live preview of picture effects and exposure adjustments. Accurate composition of landscapes, architecture and other scenes is enhanced by 3 selectable grid line patterns.

Creative New "Picture Effects"

The α35 model offers a new in-camera 'Picture Effect' setting that lets users add extra impact to stills or Full HD video during shooting, without the worry of editing images afterwards. Effects can be previewed on the camera screen, allowing photographers to see the result of a chosen effect instantly rather than post-shooting. The inspiring palette of artistic treatments includes Retro Photo, High-key, Toy Camera and Posterization.

It's also easy to produce dramatic Partial Color effects, with a single color highlighted against the rest of the image in monochrome. This popular effect is normally achieved through a series of painstaking steps using photo editing software. With the new α35 camera it's both automatic and instant.

Improved Battery Life and Compatible α AccessoriesReductions in power consumption boost the camera's battery life to a generous 440 still shots (approx. when using the rear LCD panel) between battery charges – a 30 percent increase over its predecessor.

The α35 model is compatible with the full range of 32 A-mount interchangeable lenses that includes six Carl Zeiss® lenses, as well as the full range of alpha accessories including flashes, carrying cases, LCD monitors and more.

The new camera is compatible with Sony's full line of SD memory cards, including the newest Class 10 versions, as well as the Memory Stick PRO-HG™ Duo HX series.  Available in capacities up to 32 GB, both media enable higher read speeds for more stable and optimal performance by Sony hardware features such as high-speed burst shooting or HD movie shooting.

Firmware Upgrade for A33 / A55 ModelsAvailable beginning June 20th, a firmware update for existing α33 and α55 cameras adds several creative and operational enhancements.
