Sony A230 A330 A380 Specs
Sony's upcoming entry Alphas have received full details through a product leak that briefly appeared on Sony's German page. The trio appears to be a minor optimization of the A200, A300 and A350. The 14-megapixel A380 headlines the efforts and promises a quicker autofocus in the live view on the swiveling LCD, dynamic range optimization to prevent lost detail in highlights or shadows and HDMI video output.
It also has an anti-dust system, 9-point autofocus, built-in image stabilization and an optical viewfinder with 95 percent coverage. It should sell for 750 Euros ($1,018) and will likely ship for $999 in the US. The A330 at 600 Euros ($814) appears to have all the features of the A380 but with a 10-megapixel sensor.
At the low end, the A230 would bring dynamic range optimization but otherwise has the same 10-megapixel camera and fixed, non-live LCD as the A200. It would trim the price to 550 Euros ($746) through these changes.
All three cameras are reportedly tipped for a May 19th unveiling. [via Photo Rumors]
