Sony's Swivel-Screen α33 And α55 DSLRs Get Pictured

Being a Canon man, I’ve had little occasion to check out the Sony Alpha series of DSLRs, but honestly, I’ve heard lots of good things about them. They might not have the lens prowess of the Canons, Nikons, and Pentaxes, but they’re good cameras. The upcoming α33 and α55 look like strong contenders, and the addition of swivel screens sweetens the deal.

Here are a few specs and pics, courtesy of From what I can tell, the α33 looks identical to the α55 from the angles we’re shown.

α55 specs:

  • 16MP/1080i video
  • ISO 100-12800
  • 15 AF points
  • 10 FPS
  • Dual memory slots
  • GPS

α33 specs, same as above except:

  • 14MP
  • 7FPS
  • No GPS

Rumor puts their release date, or at least announcement date, at August 24th.
