The SLT-A55V is one of the most enjoyable DSLRs we’ve ever tested. The combination of 10 frames-per-second shooting, fast focusing, good image quality and outstanding full-HD video footage that beats many camcorders — for under $900 — is a package that’s pretty hard to beat. Throw in 3D Sweep Panorama and GPS geo-tagging, and the deal seems even better. The camera isn’t perfect, since no such device has ever been invented—sorry, Mr. Jobs. That said, Sony gets a big round of applause for some major advances in digital imaging. We can’t wait to see where these technologies end up next. In the meantime, if you’re shopping for a new DSLR in October when the A55V arrives, put it near the top of your list. Also consider the A33, which arrives in September. It has many of the same features, but has a 14.2-megapixel imager, shoots 7 fps, and does not offer GPS geo-tagging, but also costs $100 less.
