Sony Alpha A55 and A33 official

Translucent Mirror Tech hits A55 and A33, while 3D sweep panorama lands on A580 and A560.

Sony’s just unleashed a string of new Alpha DSLRs, cramming in some bleeding edge tech for those gagging for more than just sharp snaps from their top end camera.

The A55 and A33 steal the show, both packing in new Translucent Mirror Tech, which Sony says “provides performance previously unattainable with traditional DSLR technology.” Essentially, it means both cameras can continuously shoot and focus while taking stills or recording 1080p video.

The A55 can shoot continuously at 10fps, while A33 can handle 7fps, which is still mighty impressive. Each one comes with a new 15-point autofocus system, while the A55 rocks 16.2 megapixels. The A33 clocks in at 14.2MP. You also get Live View and, best of all, Sony’s 3D sweep panorama mode for taking three dimensional wide angle shots that can be watched back on 3D TVs.

The A580 and A560 complete the line up, both loaded up with 3D sweep panorama, the same 15 point autofocus system as the A55 and A33, 1080i video and ISO up to 12,800. The A580 has 16.2MP, while the A560 has 14.2MP.
