We've just posted a full set of test shots taken with the Sony A550 digital SLR camera.
The Alpha A550 is based around a 14-megapixel Sony Exmor CMOS image sensor, with ISO sensitivity ranging from a minimum of 200 to a maximum of 12,800 equivalent. The Sony A550 features a 3.0-inch, articulated LCD display which can be tilted vertically upwards or downwards, with a resolution of 922K dots. The Alpha DSLR-A550 is capable of shooting bursts of five frames per second through the optical viewfinder, or four frames per second in live view mode, and offers an additional burst mode which allows an impressive seven frames per second with either the viewfinder or live view - the slight catch being that focus and exposure are locked from the first frame. The Sony DSLR-A550 also offers some unique features, such as an in-camera handheld HDR mode which captures two images and micro-aligns them in-camera, then combines them into a single image with increased dynamic range. See our Sony A550 Hands-on Preview for more details, and the Sony A550 samples page for all the test images we've shot, including links to select RAW files. Happy Thanksgiving!
