  • 16.1 MP Digital Camera
  • Full-time Continuous AF
  • AVCHD Full HD Movie at 60p
  • Tru-Finder
  • Audio Noise Reduction
  • 12 fps tele-zoom high-speed shooting:
  • Every second, you can capture up to 12 dynamic close-ups of subjects in motion
  • Tele-zoom Continuous Advance Priority AE magnifies the center of the action 1.4x to bring subjects closer at a clear 8-megapixel resolution
  • You can also team Smart Zoom with 2x magnification for super zoomed shots (4MP, S size)
  • The A57 also supports 10 fps continuous shooting at the camera's highest resolution (16.1 megapixels)
  • 15-point AF system with 3 cross sensors:
  • Ensures fast and accurate TTL phasedetection autofocusing wherever and whenever you shoot
  • Even when capturing moving subjects in dim lighting, the three vertically aligned cross sensors deliver accurate and reliable tracking
  • You can choose any of four AF area modes (Wide, Zone, Spot or Local) depending on your needs
  • High sensitivity (ISO 100-16000):
  • Large Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor provides an extremely wide sensitivity range of 7 1/3 steps
  • You can use AUTO ISO (100-3200) for outstanding results in most lighting conditions or manually raise sensitivity up to ISO 16000 when lighting is low
  • Even at high sensitivity settings, the A57 captures every detail with natural tonal gradations and extremely low noise
  • This makes the A57 perfect for shooting indoor athletes at high shutter speeds without a tripod or reproducing the mood of candlelit rooms without supplemental lighting
  • Full-time Continuous AF:
  • Even at maximum continuous shooting speed and during live-view movie shooting, accelerated full-time continuous phase-detection autofocusing keeps your subject in sharp focus without the slightest delay
  • This remarkable AF performance, made possible by Translucent Mirror Technology, lets you effortlessly capture dramatic moments and expressionsin all types of situations with professional-looking results
  • Class-leading release time lag:
  • When you press the shutter button, the A57 responds in 0.05 second - a blazing speed that rivals professional cameras
  • Made possible by an innovative electronic front curtain shutter, this accelerated response lets you capture decisive moments with utmost confidence
  • The electronic front curtain shutter also produces less shutter noise and vibration than a mechanical front curtain shutter (which can be activated if desired through the MENU)
  • Enhanced Object Tracking:
  • Object Tracking utilizes powerful predictive focusing algorithms, 15 AF points in a wide focus area, blazing-fast BIONZ image processing and Sony's original subject recognition technologies to track subjects with speed and precision
  • When your subject is a person, it automatically switches between face detection tracking and object tracking, depending on whether your subject is facing the camera
  • Quick AF Full HD Movie:
  • Even when shooting movies at Full HD resolution, the A57 employs speedy full-time continuous phase-detection autofocusing
  • Most interchangeable lens cameras revert to contrast-detection AF that slowly hunts for the correct focus when shooting movies
  • But the A57 delivers the same swift, accurate focusing as during still photography to capture even fast-moving subjects with clarity
  • You can even lock exposure, switch the focus point, enjoy digital zooming and more while shooting movies for expanded creative control
  • Large image sensor:
  • From corner to corner, every detail of your scene is beautifully captured by Sony's proprietary Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor
  • In addition to offering impressive 16.1-effective-megapixel resolution, its extra-large dimensions deliver supreme sensitivity in lowlight conditions and gorgeous background
  • defocusing effects beyond the capabilities of conventional camcorders
  • Moreover, dual noise reduction and enhanced BIONZ image processing ensure smooth gradations with minimal noise in low-light conditions
  • This means you can add a cinematic sense of drama to virtually any scene
  • AVCHD Ver. 2.0 (Progressive) Full HD 60p (50p) movies:
  • Create movies of amazing clarity that play extra smoothly by recording them at Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) in the AVCHD Ver. 2.0 (Progressive) format - at the extremely high frame rate of 60 (50) fps
  • You can easily download the movies to your computer for editing and recording to Blu-ray media, which is highly compatible with the AVCHD Ver. 2.0 (Progressive) codec
  • Sony's lightning fast Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor and Full-time Continuous AF ensure flawless capture even at accelerated 60 (50) fps
  • Full manual movie shooting:
  • The A57 frees you to realize your creative moviemaking vision
  • P/A/S/M modes (Program, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority and Manual) let you flexibly adjust aperture and shutter speed to modify the depth of field and achieve effects like defocused backgrounds when shooting movies in the manual focusing mode
  • On-screen prompts provide assistance to make full manual operation quick, easy and comfortable
  • Audio noise reduction:
  • Sound is captured clearly with minimal noise thanks to a high-performance stereo microphone on the mirror housing and advanced noise reduction that effectively suppresses AF lens drive noise via innovative NR algorithm
  • 24p (25p) cinema-like expression:
  • Movies played at theaters are traditionally captured at 24 (25) fps, creating a subtle but unmistakable look that film lovers everywhere associate with the cinema
  • Simply by capturing your movies at the same frame rate, inthe progressive format at 24p (25p), you can recreate this look and endow your movies with an added sense of quality and drama
  • This feature, together with interchangeable-lens flexibility, exceptional image quality and advanced A57 capabilities, makes it easy to achieve your moviemaking aspirations
  • Interchangeable-lens freedom:
  • Like a movie director, you can use whatever lens most effectively brings out the moment
  • Whether fisheye, telephoto, macro, fixed focal length or zoom lens, the A57 lets you take advantage of almost any system A-mount lens
  • Moreover, all of these lenses are compatible with the highspeed phase-detection AF system in the A57, enabling clear results in the most challenging conditions
  • One-touch movie access:
  • With one press of the Movie button, the A57 is ready to roll
