Sony’s newest alpha cameras, models SLT-A77 (α77) and SLT-A65 (α65) are officially announced.

Sony announced today the A77 and A65 DSLR cameras with the newest translucent mirror technology. The A77 and A65 both feature a newly developed Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor with 24.3 effective megapixel resolution, as well as the world’s first XGA OLED Tru-Finder viewfinder. The sensor teams with the next generation of Sony’s BIONZ image processing engine to handle huge amounts of high speed data from the camera sensor, enabling unprecedented response times and flawless image quality with ultra-low noise when shooting still images or Full HD video.

The much anticipated successor to Sony’s acclaimed A700 DSLR, the A77 boasts the world’s fastest continuous autofocus (AF) shooting performance (among DSLRs in Aug 2011), capturing a burst of full resolution, 24 megapixel images at 12 frames per second with full-time phase-detection AF. The A65 achieves a similarly impressive 10fps shooting speed.

Precision AF tracking of moving subjects is more precise with the Sony A77 due to a new 19-point autofocus system with 11 cross sensors. The A65 boasts 15-point AF with three cross sensors. Tracking Focus maintains accurate focus lock on a moving subject – even if the target is momentarily obscured. Additionally, a new electronic front shutter curtain achieves a minimum release time lag of approximately 50 milliseconds, comparable to much more expensive professional-class DSLRs.

The new Sony A77 Translucent Mirror interchangeable lens camera will be available in a kit with the new SAL1650 f2.8 lens for about $2,000, and offered as body-only for about $1,400. The SAL1650 lens will also be sold separately for about $700. Both the A77 and A65 will go on sale in October.
