*) SLT stands for "Single Lens Translucent", with the cameras incorporating TMT (Translucent Mirror Technology), a translucent mirror that allows roughly 70% of the light entering through the lens to pass directly through it and onto the imaging sensor, while a smaller amount, around 30% is reflected up to the camera's phase detection autofocus (AF) sensor. This means that the mirror, rather than flipping out of the way as in a traditional SLR camera, remains fixed in place, speeding up the time taken to record a shot and allowing for fast, full-time phase detection AF.
Other advantages of the design include less camera shake due to the mirror not moving, no viewfinder blackout during shooting, and settings such as exposure compensation and ISO can be more easily viewed on the electronic viewfinder.
