Sony Announces the A35 Translucent Mirror Camera and the Tiny NEX-C3

After photographs of the cameras were leaked back in April 2011, Sony has now officially announced its A35 translucent mirror camera to replace the A33 and the NEX-C3. The A35 has the same resolution as the A55 — 16.2 megapixels — and can shoot 1080/60 video and 7 frames per second for stills (though resolution is reduced to 8.4MP at this rate. ISO goes up to 25600, and there’s a large 3-inch touchscreen on the back. The A35 will be available in August for $600, or $700 if you want the standard 18-55mm kit lens included.

The NEX-C3 is supposedly the world’s smallest APS-C interchangeable lens camera. It packs the same 16.2 megapixel sensor found in the A35, and will be available in August for $600 with a 16mm lens or $650 with a 18-55mm lens.

    A35 sounds very d7000-esque with an evf.

    i’m not sure why somebody would purchase this instead of the A55? pretty much the same camera, and pretty much the same price, at least from that description.
