Sony Alpha SLT-A57 16.1 MP Digital SLR Camera - Black (Body Only)

Well-suited for high-speed sports photography or just for catching a unique sequence, this Sony 16.1 MP camera features Sony's popular Translucent Mirror Technology, which enables the Sony alpha a57 to shoot at 10 fps with continuous auto-focus and auto-exposure control. Additionally, the Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor at the core of this digital SLR camera brings high resolution with reduced noise, even in low-light situations. To rapidly zoom in on a scene, this Sony 16.1 MP camera deploys tele-zoom high-speed shooting with a 1.4x increase of focal length. Sony's exclusive By Pixel Super Resolution Technology enhances the Sony alpha a57, doubling the effective focal length, therefore providing greater shooting flexibility.

The black body of this Sony 16.1 MP camera weighs about 539 g, and its approximate measurements are 132 mm wide by 97 mm high by 80 mm deep.
