Sony A58 DSLR - Translucent Mirror Technology

Bring vibrant scenes to life.

Capture decisive moments like a true professional. The Alpha a58 unites high-end camera technology with innovative new features and user-friendly operation to enable comfortable, carefree shooting with impressive results. Every curve and detail of its sophisticated body has been painstakingly refined to enhance your handling ease. Whether shooting photos or Full HD video1, it's now easier than ever to elevate your images with the refinement and creative freedom of interchangeable-lens photography.

Images of incredible quality.

The Alpha a58 features a 20.1-megapixel Exmor HD APS sensor for lavishly detailed photos that make for gorgeous enlargements - not to mention Full HD video of incredible richness and clarity. Thanks to the large APS-C size sensor and premium Sony Exmor APS HD CMOS technology, the camera achieves high resolution with no penalty in low-light sensitivity or sensor noise. And with continuous shooting of up to 5 fps, you'll never miss a moment.

Ultimate speed and precision.

Unlike other DSLRs, the a58 captures up to 5 fps at full 20.1-megapixel resolution with continuous autofocus thanks to the power of Sony's award-winning Translucent Mirror Technology. This groundbreaking technology directs light to both the image sensor and Phase Detection AF sensor simultaneously for enhanced autofocus performance plus blazing speed and precision.

Fantastic Full HD video.

Record stunning, high-quality movies at Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution in either 60i or 24p frames per second (records in 29-minute segments). Choose the AVCHD™ codec for exquisite Blu-ray Disc™ picture quality, or record in the PC-friendly MP4 format which lets you compress files for easy upload to sites like Facebook® and YouTube™.

Sony A58 - Lock-on Auto-focus

Lock-on AF for enhanced focusing.

When shooting quick-moving subjects - think kids playing soccer or a seagull in flight - it can sometimes be difficult to maintain a crisp focus. Using Sony's Translucent Mirror Technology and advanced Face/Object Detection, Lock-on AF continuously adjusts the target frame size based on various subject characteristics and dramatically increases the in-focus rate. Even if your subject's face cannot be detected, the Lock-on AF ensures smooth, stable focusing using the optimal AF point - without having to search.

Sony A58 High ISO Sensitivity

High ISO sensitivity, low noise.

With a new Exmor sensor that features the same adaptive noise reduction technology found in Sony's flagship Alpha a99 camera, the a58 offers a wide range of sensitivity, from ISO 100 all the way to ISO 16000. Your photos and video will shine with noticeable crispness, clarity and reduced graininess - even in challenging shooting conditions.

The perfect composition.

Give your photos a professional look with the help of Auto Object Framing. Featuring advancements like exceptional two-person portrait capability along with Face Detection and Tracking Focus technology, Auto Object Framing turns ordinary photos into beautifully balanced compositions by automatically recognizing the scene then cropping accordingly. It's an effortless way to achieve perfectly framed photos every time.

I picked up A58 a year ago, It is excellent camras for the price, easy beats D3200 and T5i. The EVF is fantastic. I gave up on Conon (use to have A1 and F1 manual ones). here is some things that you should compare (keep in mind price): Nikon and Canon guys challenge ? can your camera do that? Both entry level are >800$ for this 400$ Camara. Excluding lenses (if you want you can go for >2K CZ lens too), Now you guys all out there let me know if your camera can do this: 1) Back screen (not using propriety words) shows real subject and if you chose show after camera setting applied i.e. LIVE view as is or LIVE view with Camera settings applied, 2) view finder 100%, Phase shift focusing 3) Focusing assist (magnification, and color highlights) 4) 3 cross (+) and 15 regular Sensors 5) Panorama (sweeps 4 directions left, right up and down) 6) AF in body, RAW and JPEG or both 7) Sensor cleaning and In body vibration / noise reduction 8) in body lens corrections, in body digital zoom (work with any lens, on top of optical zoom) 9) In Cameras HDR (use as is, or use for Noise reduction at high ISO and low light) 10) Looking into Viewfinder starts focusing automatically 11) focus lock, AE lock, WB lock 12) White balance calibration (also with temperature) 13) Picture control Black & White (-3 to +3steps),Saturation(-3 to +3steps),Sharpness(-3 to +3steps) 14) Bracketing (EV, Flash, White balance, Aperture, speed - you select one, other gets change to do bracketing, with 0.03 to 2EV range 15) 3 assignable buttons, Movies 1080p/60fps 16) Smile shutter (with selected subjects only) and smile variations, face recognition to keep in focus 17) Auto focusing all the time while making movies (1080p, 60Hz), stereo mike and jack 18) flash ADI and TTL with compensation in the Camera, 3 type of curtain control 19) Mirror does not move so do not have to wait for mirror to comes back, gives 8fps. 20) 24Mpixal and 450$ - Attach to Astronomical devices and non-standard manual lens 21) built-in flash Acts as optical flash trigger 22) Creative controls ? like b/w, B/w with one color, several levels of gray, soft focus various levels, Toy camera etc. etc,
