Today I will share Sony Alpha a57 Hands On Review. We now have a production sample of the Sony Alpha A57 and is currently put it through its paces. Meanwhile, you can find some examples of photos taken with the camera on the next page, each with links to the full resolution image.
What is an SLT? Fixed mirror cameras detailed. Sony announced the A57 in March 2012, with a 16.1 million pixel Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor works with a BIONZ image processor.
Other key specifications include a 15 point AF system with 3 cross sensors, full HD video recording and “Auto Portrait montage technique. So far we have found that focus to be fast and accurate, locking people with ease and without hunting around.
Because it is a DSLT, not a DSLR, the A57 features a 1400k dot electronic viewfinder, which we have proven to be very good during our first test – it’s not quite at the stage where you forget you’re using one, but it is not far.

First impressions of picture quality are good, with well represented colors and sharp details. We will be looking to put this in more detail to the test as the review progresses.
Sony has added a number of creative shooting modes options, including toy camera and pop color. Although these are a fun addition, it is a shame you cannot use them when you shoot in RAW, because it would have been nice to be able to remove the ART filter, you should decide at a later date you do not like it.
Also on the back of the camera is an adjustable 7.5 cm (3 inch) Xtra Fine LCD screen which is useful for shooting low and unusual angles photos.
All images are JPEG taken directly from the camera, but is applicable processing. All have been shot with the included 18-55mm kit lens.

We had to adjust compensation to +1 EV to capture this image, which during the exposure can be a problem in low light situations when you use an SLT.
Colors are represented well directly from the A57, with these white appears particularly vivid.
Sony A57 has 9 AF points to choose from, allowing you to choose focal point of the image.
We found the A57′s autofocus system to be fast and accurate, with the option of locking up people with ease. Again, the colors have been represented well here, while there is also a high degree of background blur. Stay tuned for our full review in due course.
