Our sources sent us a list of advantage of having a translucent tecnology. Apparently those are the arguments Sony will use to promote their A33 and A55 cameras!
1) There is no moveable mirror and you can take a picture in less than 0.1 sec!
2) World’s first Phase detection during FullHD video recording!
3) High FPS (10 frames per second).
4) No Mirror blackouts (Fulltime Liveview!).
5) Enables a more compact design. The Translucent cameras do weight 25% less than the current Sony A550. And the size is reduced by over 20%!
Let me add one more advantage: No more “clap” noise because of the mirror!
