It looks like we may be getting very close to the launch of the new Sony DSLRs, as the Sony A550L Kit is back on the Sony Style USA site in a product registration drop down list.
Expect the Sony A850 and A500 too.
The Sony A550 is rumored to have a 15-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor. The A500 gets a 12-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor and the A850 will have the same 24.6-megapixel sensor as the Sony A900.
– CMOS 14 MP
– Body same here :) http://ericreagan.smugmug.com/photos/629470783_kmJu8-O.jpg
– LCD 3 inch Xtra 921,000 px (but A500 is 230,000 px)
– S= 30-1/400s – 5 fps (but in Speed-Priority Mode has 7 fps) – A500 only 5 fps.
– 2 Live View mode: Quick AF (with another sensor) & MF check with delicate button near shutter. Live View with 4 fps.
– Live View with AF Face Detection (8 face) & Smile Shoot (3 level)
– New User Interface (upgrade from A380)
– UI in Live View is convenient (it’s mean you can use “Fn button” & selection many specs while Live View).
– 9-point AF same A380, AF tracking :D
– Grip B50AM, FM500H Battery
