All future Alpha models will include translucent mirrors
It seemed that the whole range of Alphas will be going through a big change. Shown earlier on their A55 and A33 models, Sony now confirmed that its translucent mirror tech will be coming to the entire Alpha line.
The sensor actually captures light through the mirror itself, which is just reflective enough to allow for real-time focusing even while capturing video. This is indeed a rather bold move, as thus far we’ve yet to see the overall results of this new tech in photography, and only time will tell whether it helps to boost Sony’s street cred up to Canon and Nikon levels.
