Sony, $1399

★★★★ SONY’S new shooter is a quick shot. The com­pany has in­tro­duced a semi-translu­cent mir­ror to this cam­era and as a re­sult it can take 10 pho­tos in a sec­ond. The Al­pha A55 puts this en­hance­ment to good use, not only let­ting users cap­ture fast-mov­ing sub­jects, but adding it to a low-light mode that takes six shots at once to cre­ate a well-ex­posed re­sult. The new mir­ror also al­lows for sharp video cap­ture and makes this 16.2-megapixel cam­era smaller and lighter, though it elim­i­nates an op­ti­cal viewfinder and cuts down on light reach­ing the sen­sor. The A55 also has a piv­ot­ing, bright LCD screen, full high-def­i­ni­tion video record­ing, light sen­si­tiv­ity to 12,800 ISO, and a 3D Sweep Panorama mode for use with 3D tele­vi­sions.
