Sony Alpha A550 announcement clippings

The DSLR-A550 (14.2 megapixels) is packed with advanced Sony technology that combine the spontaneity and freedom of Live View shooting with generous possibilities to realise your creative vision.
At the heart of the camera is a new Exmor CMOS sensor that ensures crisp low-noise images, packed with fine detail and vibrant colours. Dramatically reduced picture noise now allows super-sensitive shooting at up to ISO12800, allowing attractive results when shooting handheld in challenging situations like candlelit interiors.
The A550 features a superb (921k dot) 3.0 type Xtra Fine LCD screen for critical focusing and photo-quality viewing with class-leading colour, contrast and detailing.
