does a35 or a33 have option for battery grip? Can Snapsort include in their review availability of original or 3rd battery grip? thanks!

Thanks for catching that mistake, you're right, the Sony SLT-A35 does have continuous video focus, we'll update the specs.

Hi Ravi, your link doesn't seem to work.

From what I can tell the Sony SLT-A35 does not have a flip out LCD, looking at the picture of the back of the camera I think you can see the LCD is fixed.  If we're mistaken, please let us know, we'd love to have accurate information.

Imaging resource says: One major element missing from the Sony A35 is the tilt/swivel LCD screen found on the A33 and A55, but the resolution is still a fine 921.6K (640x480) from a 3-inch LCD.
