Sony's new cameras add features designed to wow

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, September 8, 2011

    Sony’s new interchangeable lens cameras add features designed to wow.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.      There’s lots of buzz around some new cameras announced by Sony.  The upcoming A77 and A65 feature OLED screens and the A77 has an OLED eyelevel viewfinder as well.   Senior technical manager for digital imaging Mark Weir…

“Both of these are based on a number of new technologies we’ve developed for our cameras that we’re introducing this fall.   Including the world’s first 24 megapixel APSC sensor, which is incorporated in both cameras, our translucent mirror technology, which is a fied mirror to allow the cameras to focus continuously while shooting stills or video.  Something unique in digital SLRs.”

And the list of features goes on.   The A-65 with a lens will sell for under a thousand dollars.   The A77 kit will go for about two thousand.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
