Editor's Review

Sony's dSLRs aren't usually much to get excited about, but the new SLT models, including the A33 are positively mouthwatering. The A33 (and its bigger sibling, the A55) boasts a pellicle-mirror autofocus system, which sounds like fancy high-brow engineering lingo, but it has a significant effect on real-world performance. Since the mirror is translucent, the camera can take a shot and maintain focus simultaneously. It allows for speedy, continuous autofocus, even in movie mode, and fast burst shooting (7 frames per second on the A33). If it turns out to be as effective as it sounds on paper, this could be a very desirable shooter for the hobbyist and enthusiast crowds.
