New batch of Sony digital SLR cameras unveiled

Sony Alpha 330

Sony has just announced three new digital SLR cameras in the Alpha 230, Alpha 330, and the Alpha 380. All three cameras are equipped with APS–C/DX sized sensors that output at 10, 10, and 14 megapixels. These models also feature in–camera image stabilization that effectively increases the usability of all lenses for their system.

Numerous improvements makes these cameras considerable performers, but with one caveat: none of them can record HD video. In fact, no video recording at all whatsoever. Considering how digital SLRs with video recording are becoming common nowadays, the absence of this feature will surely cost Sony some percentage points in market share.
