Translucent Mirror Technology

Looking for super fast auto focusing when shooting videos and photos? This very clever technology replaces the mirror box used in conventional SLR cameras with a newly designed one containing a fixed translucent mirror that doesn’t need to be raised and lowered each time the shutter is released. Perfect for catching fun moments with your friends, spontaneous smiles and frenetic sports action.

Ready for Speed

Here comes your mate about to catch some fat air on his mountain bike. Just as he takes off, you shoot. Just as he reaches maximum height, you shoot. Just as he hits the dirt, you shoot. Did you catch it all? Certainly with this camera as it includes high speed burst shooting with full continuous auto focus at up to 7 frames per second.

High Resolution

Shoot D-SLR quality images with intense colour, rich tonal gradation and subtle background defocusing effects.

Rapid Response with Translucent Mirror Technology

Never miss a moment

How many times have you seen the perfect shot, fumbled around with your camera and only captured the back end of it? You’ve got to be ready when that all important moment appears because it never announces itself. Translucent Mirror Technology puts you in charge, providing high precision, SLR quality performance for both photos and Full 1080 HD movies. How? By replacing the mirror box used in conventional SLR cameras with a newly designed one containing a fixed translucent mirror that doesn’t need to be raised and lowered each time the shutter is released. The result? Ultra high-speed continuous shooting and auto focusing, which is just what you need to catch once in a blue moon moments like your mate wiping out while showing off on his skis.

Shoot your way

What’s it to be? Live view shooting or through the viewfinder? With Advanced Quick AF Live View, high-resolution image data from the sensor can be displayed in the viewfinder as well as on the large tiltable LCD. You choose which you want to monitor while shooting. Switching is automatic for ease of use and you can activate Quick AF Live View in the viewfinder simply by putting your eye to the eyepiece.

Class leading high-speed 7 fps continuous shooting with Full-time Continuous AF thanks to Sony unique Translucent Mirror Technology.

You’ve got to be quick

Swooping birds, Moto GP bikes, hundred metre hurdlers. If you want to capture them, you’ll need a camera with high speed continuous shooting that can take multiple frames per second. This camera shoots up to 7 frames per second so everything stays clear and blur free.

Get closer

Maybe you want to get closer to the action? Tele-Zoom Continuous Advance Priority AE zooms in with around 1.4x magnification to keep your subject in precise focus in every frame – ideal for capturing fast sports and fleeting facial expressions.

SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization: Effective enough at shutter speeds approximately 2.5 to 4.5 steps slower than would otherwise be possible while supporting all alpha lenses.

Natural Images in Low Light

It’s the prince of darkness

How many times have you shot at dawn or dusk, only to get back home and be royally disappointed with the dark, grainy results? Some of the most dramatic shots come at the beginning and end of the day but you need a pretty decent sensor to capture detail in that twilight zone. This camera includes a super-sensitive, high resolution Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor and high ISO sensitivity of 100-16000 to perfectly preserve fine details, no matter how dark the scene.

Switch Lenses

You choose which one you want

Lions stalking antelopes. Killer whales off shore. Eagles atop a distant peak. How many times have you wanted to zoom in and catch the action without moving an inch? With interchangeable lenses, you can capture precisely the shot you want, whether a distant view or a stunning close-up. There’s a full range of lenses to choose from including high zooms, wide angles, macros, primes and telephotos.

    Colour Name: BlackSize: 18-55mm Lens Verified Purchase
    Having bought an A37 in February, I have had the time to thoroughly assess its pros and cons. The camera's design is excellent, being light and excellently portable for a DSLR. The supplied lens will fit the bill very well for most users, however there is a wide selection to choose from if you choose to upgrade. The A37 is an SLT camera, and so has a translucent mirror rather than a moving mirror as typically found in DSLR cameras. This has a number of implications for how the camera performs. Advantages include the ability to have far higher speed image capture, quicker autofocusing in still photos, and continuous autofocus in video. However, the principal downside of this technology is the lack of an optical viewfinder in favour of an electronic one. Indeed, the electronic viewfinder for me is the sole downside of the A37, as the display is detailed but simply not bright enough for use in highly lit conditions. Nevertheless, in most circumstances the viewfinder, is usable enough, and as one plus point displays current settings such as shooting mode, aperture, iso and shutter speed in far greater detail than on most DSLRs with an optical viewfinder. The LCD display, also displaying this information, has an excellent `live-view' display which can be rotated in many different directions in order to manage the trickiest of shots. Image quality is excellent through and through, the array of settings available being superb. The camera has several additional features which are highly useful, such as the night portrait mode designed for shooting at night without a tripod, giving excellent results. Other additions include HDR, creative filters, panoramas (3D and 2D) and both manual scene selection and intelligent auto. There are as ever the P, M , A , S settings for manual controls.Read more ›

    Colour Name: BlackSize: 18-55mm Lens
    Having used a Sony A200 for the last few years, I bit the bullet and upgraded to one of these SLTs.

    It's still an entry level model, but the features and image quality are all vastly improved. The EVF viewfinder technology is clearly sill at an early stage, and it takes a little getting used to having an electronic screen rather than a mirror to look into, but the advantages this brings far outweigh the initial reservations I had. In low-light, the viewfinder will turn up the gain, giving you an image where previously you'd have just had a dark optical viewfinder. The image can be a bit grainy under these conditions (in good light it gives a very clear picture indeed) but it's obviously better than seeing nothing. Low-light also lets it show off its vastly improved handling of high ISO settings (far less image noise than the earlier generation at ISO 800+)

    It has a full range of features and shooting modes - most clearly aimed at those point-and-shoot users who usually shoot in auto-jpg mode, but by going into one of the manual or part-manual mode and shooting RAW, you can really start to see some impressive results here.

    The small size may not be to everyone's taste (I found it a lot easier to handle than I'd expected) so make sure you get hold of one before buying, if you can.

    Colour Name: BlackSize: 18-55mm Lens Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    An entry DSLR from a company going from strength to strength in the digital camera market.

    The SLTA37 packs a feature set similar to its SLTA57 brother in a smaller body like the SLTA33 it replaces.

    I found image quality to be good, especially in raw mode, but when compared to ones I had taken with my Canon Powershot also in raw I felt the Canon ones were better. Whcih surprised me as the canon is a high end compact.

    It features a number of creative effects, the ones I most like so far being HDR mode and the sweep panoramic mode. It has two different quality settings and I tend to stick with 'fine' for the sharpest quality images. The camera itself could be used a a point and shoot in full auto or in full manual for those wanting to learn more and get stuck in.

    Lenses were easy to switch in and out and shooting hd video was a doodle, with fantastic results.

    The screen is not as nice as other camera's I have used and although it tilts I would have liked it to have been hinged too. Though I think I may be asking too much of an entry level camera.

    I'm really unsure if I were looking for an entry level dslr if I would choose this camera. I think if I were again right now I would probably look at a Nikon D3100 as there are bargains to be had now the D3200 is out, or for a point and shoot maybe a Sony RX100 or Canon Powershot S110. That said for an unthreatening easy introduction to a DSLR this camera is good.

    Colour Name: BlackSize: 18-55mm Lens Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    The SLT-A37 is Sony's new entry-level DSLR camera for beginners. Technically it isn't a DSLR, it's an SLT (Single-Lens Translucent); Sony's award-winning innovation that uses a translucent mirror. But, for the purposes of this review, I'll refer to it as a DSLR. Also, because I don't have another DSLR to compare it to, I'll be comparing it to my Sony DSC-RX100 (the world's best compact camera).

    My SLT-A37 arrived with the battery almost empty. A lot of Sony cameras these days can actually be charged via USB, but the SLT-A37 isn't one of them. So to charge the 1080 mAh NP-FW50 battery pack, you'll need to take it out of the camera and put it in the supplied BC-VW1 battery charger. Charging time is approximately 4 hours.

    If you're "stepping up" from a compact camera to a DSLR, you'll immediately notice how solid and professional the SLT-A37 feels in your hand. This is a serious piece of equipment. The ergonomic rubber grip is a pleasure to hold and makes the camera relatively difficult to drop. On the back of the SLT-A37 there's an angle-adjustable LCD, which can be tilted through 135˚, enabling you to take photos from otherwise challenging positions. This is an incredibly useful feature. Sony call the 2.7" LCD "high quality" but it isn't. It's a QVGA display with a resolution of just 320 x 240 pixels; a quarter of what the DSC-RX100 has! Plus it flickers slightly and solarises easily.

    Fortunately there's an electronic viewfinder (aka Tru-Finder) which, with its SVGA resolution of 800 x 600 pixels, is much higher quality than the rear LCD. There's a diopter-adjustment dial, which changes the focus of the viewfinder to better suit your eyesight. There's also a Viewfinder Magnification setting, which shrinks the image down so that it's easier to see in its entirety.
