(SR5) Sony A57 with 1,44 million dot viewfinder. NEX in April.


I already told you in previous posts that the A57 is almost equal with the Sony A65 in terms of features and design. The main difference is that it uses the same superb 16 Megapixels Sony NEX-5n sensor. But there are also other differences. I have been told that one of them is that the A57 will uses a 1,44 million dot viewfinder instead of the 2,4 million dot OLED EVF of the A65. My sources said you don’t really notice a major difference. On paper the A55 had a 1,44m dot viewfinder too but only 1m were actually used. The A57 will “use” them all.

The biggest plus of the camera is the lower resolution sensor that in theory should give you less noisier images at High ISO. But we will see if that hope becomes true when the camera gets announced on March 13th.

One more reminder: The NEX-F3 and the new Sony camcorders will be announced in April. And I have been told that there will e an announcement in May too!
