Sony has combined mirrorless camera and DSLR into a single unit




Sony Alpha A3000

The company Sony masterfully puts large image sensors in a compact camera body. An example is the mirrorless devices ranging model NEX-3 and ending with the NEX-7 the professional level . The Japanese manufacturer has decided to go in a new way: to take the body of the DSLR, and the control buttons, the sensor and the lens borrow mirrorless camera.

New Camera Sony Alpha A3000 is equipped with 20.1-megapixel image sensor APS-C, an electronic viewfinder, supports 1080p-video recording at 60 or 24 frames per second, as well as a variety of filters and special effects. The device uses a bayonet mount lens E-mount, a traditional Series cameras Alpha NEX. The longer, the more similarities with the models NEX.

Externally A3000 is more like a flattened DSLR-camera with a comfortable grip for the right hand, the mode dial on the top panel, the flash connection (“hot shoe”) and the control buttons that are neatly scattered around the camera body. As a result, the unit turned smaller than most DSLR-cameras, but more and definitely more convenient mirrorless counterparts. Feedback from people who have had the opportunity to personally experience the camera, Alpha A3000 easier to hold with one hand as compared to the series models NEX.

Alpha A3000 can be called Sony’s attempt to blur the line between mirrorless and DSLR-cameras, thus to make it a more attractive proposition. Complete with a “whale” of a lens 18-55mm Alpha A3000 worth 399.99 dollars. In general, we were offered an entry-level device with the ability to later upgrade due to attachment of E for interchangeable lenses – sort of a low-cost way to look like a professional photographer with a DSLR-camera.

This is not to say that Sony ignores the traditional line of NEX. The company has upgraded the family model NEX-5T. Novelty is not much different from the models NEX-5R, but a more compact 16-50mm lens module and NFC, which allows one-click synchronize the camera with a smartphone or computer. 5T uses the same image sensor and high-speed hybrid autofocus.

Both new products will be on sale at the end of September, along with three new lenses. It is unlikely that Alpha A3000 and NEX-5T overshadowed mirrorless camera Sony NEX-6, but fit perfectly as a cheaper alternative.

Previously, Sony showed full lenses for tablets and smartphones.
