Unlike competing cameras, the DSLR-A500Y is just as responsive in Quick Auto Focus Live View mode as in optical viewfinder mode. That's because, unlike the others, the A500Y uses the same "phase detection" auto focus for Live View as for the optical viewfinder. While other Live View systems are severely restricted, Sony's performs superbly any time - even if you're shooting handheld or chasing after moving subjects like kids or pets.
Even if you're completely comfortable with the optical viewfinder, Sony's tiltable LCD empowers your photography with a different point of view. Helps you frame high and low-angle shots that would otherwise be hit or miss. The LCD tilts up or down 90 degrees to capture a child's first steps or shoot over a crowd. The 3.0"LCD features 230,000 pixels and Sony's Clear Photo LCD display technology.
High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography captures more scene contrast than a single exposure can handle by combining two exposures into one incredible shot. Until recently, you needed a computer and editing software to enjoy HDR. Now the A500Y has Auto HDR built in. Handles severe backlighting and other high-contrast scenes. Captures in a split second.
Connect your camera to a compatible HDTV and play back your images in stunning high definition. The A500Y includes an HDMI output. In addition, the BRAVIA Sync system works with compatible Sony BRAVIA HDTVs to let you control camera playback using the television's remote.
