Sony Alpha a37 16.1MP Digital SLR Camera Translucent Mirror can be seen above except it can’t be seen very easily, which is not actually translucent, it’s actually clear, better name would be a transparent mirror, which is not only identical slightly reflective.
The important part to know is that it’s slightly reflective and sends an image up to the hole you can just see above the mirror, this is where it focuses the image, letting the rest of the image through to the sensor to take the photo. This means there is no mirror to move out of the way to take the photo, and it also means it can use Digital SLR style phase detection focus while recording videos or taking photos.
The key to the fast burst mode and video autofocus is the circumstance that this isn’t technically an SLR. The SLT in the name stand for single-lens translucent. A single-lens reflex (SLR) camera uses a mirror that directs light to the viewfinder and autofocus system, and flips out of the way to let the light reach the sensor to take a picture. This Sony A37 uses a translucent mirror that sends light to both the autofocus system and the sensor at the same time. That effectively prohibits the use of an optical viewfinder, this Sony A37 like all the cameras in Sony’s SLT range uses an electronic viewfinder (EVF) instead.
This is the third generation of Sony’s SLT cameras, and it’s good to see that some problems we experienced with the first generation it have been ironed out. There was no sign of the sensor overheating after recording an hour of video.
The camera feels great, working as expected with a good number of controls and buttons giving quick access to settings. The camera’s small size works in its favour as well by making the camera easy to pick up and take with you. The Sony Alpha A37 delivers excellent images with low noise and great colour making it a brilliant choice for anyone looking for a fast compact Digital SLR.
