Introduction

The Alpha A33, along with its big-brother A55V, is part of Sony's collection of translucent mirror DSLRs. The camera functions like a DSLR in the fact that it has loads of manual controls and uses an interchangeable lens system, but since the mirror inside is translucent the camera has plenty of other advantages. It has a much quicker autofocus mechanism than a traditional DSLR, and its continuous shooting modes are top-notch for a camera of its class.

Sony recently reduced the price of the SLT-A55V by $100 bucks down to $649 with its 18-55mm kit lens, or $549 body only. We must warn, however, that the model has been discontinued in Japan as of a few weeks ago. As of now, the camera is still available in the US and you can still purchase it from Sony's website online.
