Sony Alpha 57 (A57) – Video & 12fps samples

It finally arrived today, the Sony Alpha A57. I was eager to try out the video mode, cant say I’m impressed. The HX9V delivers better than this. Come an, Sony.
The colors are washed out and looks like it barely has 720 lines.

The full clip is available here:

On the other hand, if you want an good DSLR for the family, this camera is a treat. It’s as easy as a point and shoot and does really deliver when it comes to photo quality.
Don’t forget their 12fps with continues focus, perfect for soccer mom’s to use at their kids sports events or the amateur wild life photographer.

  1. Hello there,

    Like you site!

    As far as I know the current Alpha and NEX family has higher resolution (better detail) in 24p/25p vs 50p/60p. Probably the image processor has more time in the lower frame-rate modes to rescale the image to 1920×1080 with better algorythm. Anyway, it would be great if you do another resolution chart test (youtube or screengrab on this site) with the A57 in 25p mode. I would really appreciate it!
