Sony Dslr Camera Description
Sony is one of the largest brands in the electronics market in the world, their first camera came out in 1988 but they didn't really take up market space till 1996 when they launched the first of the 'Cyber-shot' series. This series was a hit and based on this Sony cameras held a 20% share of the overall camera market which did eventually drop by around 2005 when DSLRs made waves.
In 2006 Sony acquired Konica Minolta and used their technological steps to follow up with a DSLR series called 'Sony α' often transliterated as Sony Alpha. This is a successful series owning about 13% of the DSLR market behind Canon and Nikon. Most of the Sony DSLRs use a "pellicle mirror" to show the image in their viewfinder. Unlike traditional DSLRs that house an opaque mirror the pellicle mirror lets most of the light pass through to the sensor while some of the light is used for the electronic viewfinder. One of the most impressive features of the Sony DSLR range is their shooting frame rates that are maxed out to capture fast-moving objects well for instance some of them can shoot 12 frames per second at 24megapixels! A great feature for sports photography or shooting wildlife.
Sony is slowly making lesser DSLRs though and focusing more attention to the mirrorless camera range, that segment of theirs has been doing better for them due to its more compact nature and better video shooting options.
Which Sony camera you invest in is a matter of what kind of performance you expect out of your camera and also what you have in mind for how much you want to spend! Generally though Sony is a high end brand so expect to dish out a decent amount of money for it.
