The Sony SLT-A35 Alpha 35 DSLR Digital Camera (Body Only) is an affordable and lightweight DSLR that's easy to travel with, yet full of options putting your vision into print. With a 16.2Mp APS HD CMOS sensor and Sony's BIONZ image processor, along with 'Translucent Mirror Technology', you're assured detailed photos that can stand up to editing and enlarging, and look great in any application: on your HDTV, computer monitor, digital picture frame, and of course, as prints, big and small. Of course, RAW image capture provides you with even more latitude, providing high-quality files and allowing for exposure and other adjustment options not available with images shot in JPEG.

With the Sony A-mount you can put any number of lenses onto the Alpha 35 for getting the just shot you want. If you're feeling the need for an all-purpose zoom lens, you can add one. Want a fixed wide-angle? You can do that too. And of course, the SLT-A35 wouldn't be a true digital camera if it didn't also record HD video. The Quick AF Full HD Movie mode allows you to record 1080/60i movies. With features like Live View, the TruBlack LCD monitor, and creative controls, you can make stunning videos along with spectacular photos. Additionally, the eye-level finder for HD movies helps you with framing and focus.

No matter which mode you're shooting in: video or stills, all your files can be stored on a variety of optional memory cards. The camera's media card slot allows for insertion of Sony's own Memory Stick PRO Duo, Memory PRO-HG Duo, and SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards. Other useful features of the camera include a built-in auto pop-up flash, which is great for grabbing low-light snapshots, and Hand-held Twilight and Multi-frame NR modes which both allow for quality low-light images without the flash, by combining the data from 6 consecutive shots into one. You can also shoot 3D images that look great on 3D televisions as JPEG or MPO files. These features, and numerous others, all contribute to this truly versatile and cost-effective DSLR, the SLT-A35.

Translucent Mirror Technology
Conventional DSLRs can shoot. Or they can focus with the speed and precision of Phase Detection AF. They cannot do both at once. The SLT-A35 utilizes Translucent Mirror Technology which directs light to both the image sensor and the Phase Detection AF sensor simultaneously
Tele Zoom High Speed Shooting
The translucent mirror makes it far easier to capture the decisive soccer kick or your baby at her absolute cutest. The Tele Zoom High Speed shooting mode shoots up to 7 fps at 8.4Mp while maintaining continuous auto focus and auto exposure
Quick AF for Full HD Movie Capture
When most DSLRs shoot video, their Contrast AF is slow and visibly "hunts" for focus. The Quick AF Full HD Movie retains the same fast, precise Phase Detection you enjoy for still images. It's a decisive advantage for tracking fast-moving subjects and a major benefit of Translucent Mirror Technology
16.2Mp Resolution
You get incredible detail and gorgeous enlargements. Thanks to the 16.2Mp APS-C sensor size and Sony Exmor APS HD CMOS technology, the camera achieves high resolution with no penalty in low-light sensitivity or sensor noise
APS-C Size HD CMOS Image Sensor
With 19.5 times the area of the typical camcorder image sensor, APS-C makes the difference between amateur and professional-looking video, delivering an exceptional combination of high resolution, high sensitivity and gorgeous, blurred backgrounds
Sony Exmor Technology
Conventional image sensors use only a handful of analog-to-digital (A/D) converters, which can slow you down. The Exmor sensor provides more than 4,000 column-parallel A/D converters. This helps enable continuous shooting at up to 7 frames per second
Full HD 1080/60i Movies
This is one of the very few DSLRs with 1080/60i Full HD, exactly the same resolution and frame rate as most broadcast and cable HDTV channels. Records in 1080/60i AVCHD format, 1080/30p high definition in PC-friendly MP4 format and standard definition 480/30p in MP4 format
Picture Effect Mode
There are 7 types (11 variations) of picture effects to choose from: Posterization (Color), Posterization (B/W), Pop Color, Retro Photo, Partial Color (R), Partial Color (G), Partial Color (B), Partial Color (Y), High-key, High Contrast Monochrome, Toy Camera. Each is unique and each give you a new and exciting way to make your images and videos pop
Multi-Frame NR
Experience incredible low-light shooting without a flash. The camera captures six images in a fraction of a second. Combining the data from all six, it creates a single image with a reduction in noise equivalent to two additional steps of ISO sensitivity. Sensitivity selectable up to ISO 25600. (Recommended for still subjects)
Hand-Held Twilight
Get cleaner and sharper nighttime pictures-beyond the capability of traditional cameras-without using flash or a tripod. The camera captures six images in a fraction of a second. Combining the data with separate algorithms for still and moving parts of the picture reduces blur, minimizes noise and enables extraordinary detail
Auto HDR Built Into Camera
Captures more scene dynamic range than a single exposure can handle-and more range than photo film. Combines the best highlight detail from one shot, the best mid-tones from a second and the best shadow detail from a third for one incredible shot. Captures in a split second. (Recommended for still subjects)
3D Sweep Panorama Mode
Capture vast scenic vistas and 16:9 shots in spectacular 3D. As you sweep across the panorama, the camera records separate right-eye and left-eye images that make landscapes come alive on your 3D television. Records both JPEG and MPO file formats
Eye-Level Electronic Viewfinder
The Tru-finder Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) is super bright, easy to see with 1.1x magnification, ultra-sharp with 1.44 million dots (1.15 effective) and provides 100% frame coverage. Exposure preview and informative overlays make operation easy
Eye-Level Finder for HD Movie
The eye-level finder is one of the reasons people love DSLRs. But that finder goes dark whenever you shoot HD Movies. The Sony SLT-A35 enables you to shoot movies with the added stability you get holding the camera up to your face and using the eye-level finder for framing a scene and focus
15 Point Auto Focus
To maximize the value of Translucent Mirror Technology, Sony incorporates Phase Detection AF of great sophistication. Three cross sensors maximize precision
921K Dot TruBlack LCD Screen
Sony's 3.0" Xtra Fine LCD monitor has 921K dots for superb resolution. The TruBlack screen includes a special resin layer to suppress internal reflections, increasing contrast compared to conventional LCDs. Sunny Weather mode boosts visibility even further in bright sunlight
Main Sensor Live View with Quick AF
Main Sensor Live View with Quick AF combines the optimum focus of Phase Detection with high quality Live View images right from the main sensor. This is made possible by Sony Translucent Mirror Technology
Live View in LCD or EVF
You can use both the LCD monitor and Electronic Viewfinder for composing shots. Both provide a what-you-see-is-what-you-get preview of white balance, focus, depth of field, exposure and 100% framing accuracy, plus informative on-screen displays
Phase Detection Auto Focus
While Contrast Detection AF often hunts for correct focus, Phase Detection AF knows exactly where correct focus is, and goes straight for it. The Sony SLT-A35 provides Phase Detection AF when capturing HD movies as well as during still image capture, either using the viewfinder or Live View on the LCD
ISO 12800 Sensitivity
Incredibly clear low-light pictures without sacrificing detail, made possible by the low-noise Exmor APS HD CMOS image sensor and refined BIONZ image processor
Auto+ (Advanced Auto) Mode
Get cleaner, more dynamic pictures and fewer missed shots. Unifies and simplifies Sony intelligent technologies, the camera automatically recognizes the correct scene mode, then quickly shoots and combines up to six shots to produce images with greater clarity, optimum dynamic range using Auto HDR technology and lower image noise using 6 shots layering technology
Sweep Panorama Mode
Capture expansive landscapes automatically. Press the shutter and sweep vertically or horizontally. The camera does the rest, continuously shooting images and stitching them together. Up to 23Mp image size
Powerful Creative Control Over Movies
While the camera offers fully automatic movie shooting, you can also control aperture (A mode with manual focus only), white balance and select Creative Style. During a movie shot, you can change the metering mode and adjust exposure compensation
Pro-Style 'Rack Focus" Movie Effect
A hallmark of today's movies is the "rack focus" effect, when the cinematographer changes focus between background and foreground subjects. This usually involves careful planning, a tape measure and dedicated a crew member for "pulling" focus. With the SLT-A35, you can perform this pro-style effect simply by changing the selected AF Area within the frame
Help Guide
Provides ready reference to advanced camera functions, helping to develop your confidence and skills as a photographer
Compact and Lightweight Design
Eliminating the moving mirror also reduces the camera's size and weight. It's not just remarkably advanced; it's notably small and light
Dynamic Range Optimizer (DRO)

BIONZ Image Processor
The brain of the camera is a refined version of Sony's BIONZ image processor. Its chroma noise reduction delivers high-resolution, low-noise photos even at ISO 12800 sensitivity. Also enables up to 5.5 fps continuous shooting at full resolution, Sweep Panorama mode and more
SteadyShot INSIDE Stabilization
Image stabilization reduces blur by compensating for camera shake. Typical DSLR systems build image stabilization into selected lenses only. SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization is built into the camera body itself. You'll reduce blur with every A-mount lens, including macro and wide-aperture standard zoom lenses
1200-Zone Exposure Metering
Reads exposure directly from the main image sensor. Choice of Multi, Center and Spot metering accommodates a full range of shooting situations
RAW Image Capture
Saves your pictures as compact JPEG files or ultra-high quality RAW files or both. RAW files save images prior to de-mosaicing, white balance, sharpness and color enhancement. This retains maximum latitude for enhancing the image on your PC
Smile Shutter Technology
Captures a smile the moment it happens. Simply select the Smile Shutter mode and the camera takes the picture automatically. You can prioritize children or adults and adjust the smile sensitivity
Powerful Supplied Software
To help you refine and manage your images and video, the camera is equipped with computer software including Image Data Converter SR, Image Data Lightbox SR and Picture Motion Browser (PMB)

Eight Scene Selection Modes
These help you get the shot by optimizing the camera for specific shooting situations. Select from Portrait, Sports Action, Macro, Landscape, Sunset, Night View, Night Portrait and Hand-held Twilight Shot modes
Anti-Dust Technology
Anti-Dust Technology helps keep the CMOS sensor clean, resulting in consistently clear pictures. First a static-free coating on the sensor's low-pass filter helps repel dust. Then vibration automatically dislodges dust from the sensor
Up to 440 Shots of Battery Life

          Comments about Sony SLT-A35 Alpha 35 DSLR Digital Camera (Body Only):

          I purchased this camera for my mom for Christmas and I ended up using it more than she did. I immediately fell in love with it. The pictures this camera takes are absolutely breathtaking; they are so clear and so vivid. I love that it automatically can change from LCD view to the viewfinder when your face gets close to it. Love that it is compatible with old Minolta lens mounts (the main reason that I purchased it so that my mom could use her old lenses). Definitely a MUST BUY!!

            Comments about Sony SLT-A35 Alpha 35 DSLR Digital Camera (Body Only):

            After my Minolta 7D went to a better place, I needed a new camera to fit my spread of lenses. Sony is the best place to go, so after research we decided on the Alpha 35. I am still getting accustomed to it, but we were immediately impressed with how light the body is. This is bound to help in low light situations.

            Upgrades since my last camera - automatic flash pop-up, easy access timers, amazing resolution!! 16Mp are incredible! A neat feature I found is the smile shutter technology. It doesn't work so well in low light, but I'm looking forward to testing on my nephews.

            Still learning a few tricks - a lot less buttons on the body, so I'm having to figure out the shortcuts (or longcuts) of how to get a few places.

            We're totally pleased with this camera so far. I'll review further if I find a need!

              Comments about Sony SLT-A35 Alpha 35 DSLR Digital Camera (Body Only):

              Had this camera for about two weeks now and LOVE it. Replaced a Sony HDR-HC5 and Canon HV40 with this camera. I skipped the kit lens and opted for the Sony SAL-50F18 50mm f/1.8 DT AF Lens and am not disappointed. Picture quality is unmatched in the price group and the camera is fast with little lag time.

              I had my first videography gig last week in downtown Chicago and the camera worked wonders on a day that went from sunny to cloudy. I used a Rode camera mounted shotgun mic mounted on an Opteka X-GRIP holder. Worked like a charm with no noticeable lens noise.

              A few slight cons...

              The fixed LCD might cause problems when self recording. B&H lowered the price $50 two weeks after I bought it! Killing me B&H!

                Comments about Sony SLT-A35 Alpha 35 DSLR Digital Camera (Body Only):

                I got this camera (body only) to shoot my son's sports and to shoot video of upcoming hunting trips. I've been using the Sony A100 for a few years and have been very pleased with it's performance, but it was time for an upgrade.
                I like the fact that since I am an amature photographer it has a tutorial that is shown on the screen when I select something on the program dial. I'm a hands on person and don't like to spend most of my time reading the manuals. It's lightweight and a little smaller than my A100. I do suggest getting a good quality sdhc card that has at least 8GB and 60mb/s. You will notice how quickly your photo's upload and record.
                So far I haven't found any faults with this camera. It is very lightweigt as I mentioned so that takes some getting used to.

                    Bought two new A35s. My son bought one and I bought one. We both love the camera. So easy to use. I shoot alot in manual mode and still easy to navagate throuht the menus. The software is something to be desired.I would recamend this camera to all intrested in buying a new camera.

                      Comments about Sony SLT-A35 Alpha 35 DSLR Digital Camera (Body Only):

                      Now that there Adobe has released Camera Raw and Lightroom Release Candidates that cover its RAW files, I had a chance to really test it. The files are excellent, which is what matters with a great dynamic range.The camera even correctly metered an IR filter. The eye-level-electronic-viewfinder is kind of hard to get use to as I like a lot of others, have a habit of reviewing the image taken in the screen at the back. It took me a bit to realize that when looking through the view finder, one is seeing the actual results of clicking the shutter since it has the histogram right there to look at. Originally, I had a Nex as my walk around camera to go with my medium format back, but could not get used to a not looking through a view finder, this is my upgrade to the Nex and am glad I did. With two lenses, I have a camera that covers 16mm to 350mm. Don't think I have used it enough for pro/con comments. I do think this takes a little getting use to.
