Technically, this Sony camera is coming out as the A77, but it certainly won’t have that clear body, which looks pretty awesome. Sony made this prototype to draw attention to the new translucent mirror technology found in the A77, which Ubergizmo says would allows for more advanced realtime autofocusing while shooting stills or video. The camera, which PetaPixel says will replace the A700, will also shoot 1080p AVCHD video and feature Sony’s Exmor CMOS sensor.
Beyond that nobody seems to know much about the Sony A77 yet, but expect more news about it to pop up from the CP+ camera show going on in Japan right now. [Sony via PetaPixel]
