  • 24.2 MP Digital SLR
  • DT 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 SAM II
  • 4D Focus
  • APS-C Exmor CMOS Sensor
  • 2.7" Tiltable LCD Screen
  • With 4D FOCUS, you'll never miss that perfect moment:
  • Capture unforgettable moments for posterity with the a68. The world's highest number of phase-detection AF points (79) covering a wide AF area will catch moments that last for a lifetime. The Exmor CMOS sensor and BIONZ X image processing engine deliver the imaging impact that you aim for. Dials, controls and displays make shooting more intuitive and immediate to optimize operability.
  • Wide & Fast AF system:
  • A 79-point phase-detection AF system 3 (including 15 cross points) has points widely placed within the most frequently used central area of the frame. It keeps tracking and fast autofocusing on a moving subject.
  • Sophisticated AF algorithm in tracking:
  • High performance in tracking moving subjects to enable continuous autofocus even during continuous shooting at 8 fps.
  • Superior AF in low light:
  • Autofocus performs well in low-light conditions, with as little light as EV -2, which is equivalent to a moonlit night where the naked eye has difficulty seeing objects.
  • AF Area modes:
  • For autofocusing, you can choose from Wide, Zone, Center, Flexible Spot, Expand Flexible Spot, and Lock-on AF area mode, which allows precise focus tracking of a subject by optimizing target frame size and ensuring use of the optimal AF point.
  • AF Range Control:
  • Locks autofocusing to a specified range of distance from the camera for sharp results, even if the target is obscured momentarily by another passing object.
  • Face Detection and Eye AF:
  • Face Detection with Face Registration can detect up to eight faces in a scene, and adjust exposure, white balance, flash and other settings for beautiful portraits. Eye AF further assures sharp focusing on the face by detecting an eye to focus on.
  • Proprietary Translucent Mirror Technology:
  • Sony's unique design replaces a DSLR moving mirror with a fixed translucent mirror, which enables fast shooting with continuous use of accurate phase detection AF.
  • Full-time Continuous AF during Full HD movie shooting:
  • Records with superior speed and precision of full-time continuous phase-detection autofocusing, even during Full HD movie shooting, thanks to proprietary Translucent Mirror Technology.
  • In-body image stabilization:
  • Effective image stabilization for any compatible lens, throughout the entire focal length range. Helps stabilize the viewfinder image when the shutter button is halfway pressed.
  • 24.2 MP 4 APS-C Exmor CMOS sensor:
  • The large Exmor CMOS image sensor with approximately 24.2 MP 4 boosts sensitivity and reduces noise with gapless on-chip lens design eliminating the gaps between micro-lenses to collect more light.
  • Wide max. ISO 100-25600 sensitivity range:
  • The wide maximum sensitivity ranges of ISO 100-25600 for stills and ISO 100-12800 for movies let you shoot natural-looking, low-noise results even in low light
  • BIONZ X processing engine:
  • The processor handles enormous amounts of sensor data to allow high-speed shooting of superb low-noise images. Advanced built-in features include detail reproduction technology to produce more realistic images, diffraction reduction to correct blurred details, and area-specific noise reduction for clearer, more finely detailed images even at high ISO settings. Area-specific Noise Reduction selectively divides the image into areas based on patterns (such as edges, textures, and evenly colored areas like blue skies), then applies the most appropriate noise reduction for each area.
  • Supports 50 Mbps XAVC S format:
  • For extremely high image quality and minimal noise, record movies in the high bitrate XAVC S 1 format, which enables Full HD image recording at 50 Mbps (30p/25p 6, 24p).
  • Creative movie function:
  • There's more to auto and manual operation than meets the eye. AF functions are ever-reliable, and P/A/S/M exposure modes offer great creative control. Audio level display and rec level control on viewfinder/LCD screen make microphone/recording levels easy to screen and adjust while shooting. Fine-tune images by choosing among 20 Picture Effect and 13 Creative Style settings.
  • Top Display Panel:
  • This "must-have" feature of this midrange camera facilitates quick, easy setting and confirmation, especially with a tripod setup.
  • Tiltable LCD screen:
  • Tiltable LCD screen (2.7-type) to clearly shoot at max. 135 degrees up and 55 degrees down, enables shooting over the heads of people in crowds, or on the ground for a startling view of pets and flowers. Brightness is adjustable.
  • Control Wheel:
  • The control wheel on the back is popular among a7 series camera users, and you can modify its functionality according to shooting intention for quick changes of camera settings as you look through the viewfinder.
  • OLED Tru-Finder with 100% frame coverage:
  • OLED advantages of tonal gradation, color reproduction, and contrast, this electronic viewfinder makes it easy to view true-to-life images. It also lets you compare different effects of setting changes, as well as use MF Assist and a Preview function to fine-tune focus and preview shots, including those with defocusing effects.
  • Customizable function buttons:
  • Assign frequently used functions to the customizable buttons of your choice. Easily reassign 11 buttons to activate any of 49 functions for faster, more intuitive operation.
  • Multi Interface Shoe and Multi Terminal:
  • The Multi Interface Shoe lets you mount wide-ranging accessories including a high-capacity flash unit, a video light, or shotgun microphone for enhanced movie shooting and more.
  • Color tabs in the settings menu:
  • Each tab in the settings MENU has a color on the tab for intuitive operation.
  • Sony Alpha DT 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 SAM II LENS:
  • Standard Zoom Lens
  • Smooth Autofocus Motor
  • Circular Aperture Mechanism
  • Filter Diameter: 55 mm
  • Offers excellent contrast and resolution for gorgeous image quality
  • From snapshots and group photos, to landscapes and portraits, this conveniently compact, lightweight lens handles the most frequently used 18mm to 55mm range (35mm equivalent = 27-82.5mm)
  • Featuring two aspherical elements and one ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element, this lens delivers gorgeous image quality with excellent contrast and resolution all the way out to the periphery of the lens
  • The circular aperture mechanism helps assure smoother, more beautiful background defocusing, while focusing is enhanced by the Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM)?located in the lens itself, it responds instantly to AF signals from the camera for powerful, precise autofocus
  • 3x zoom with attractive pricing, compact size, and low weight:
  • 3x (approx.) zoom lens designed specifically for use with Alpha DSLRs that have an APS-C type sensor
  • It is exceptionally light and compact, with a weight of only 210g (approx.) and dimensions of 69.5mm (max. diameter) x 69mm (length) that make it very easy to handle and carry
  • Convenient 18-55mm zoom range:
  • The DT 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 SAM's zoom covers the frequently used 18mm to 55mm range (35mm-format equivalent: 27-82.5mm), and provides a field of view similar to that of the human eye

  • Aspherical and ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements:
  • Two aspherical elements and one ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element are incorporated into the optics to assure high image quality with excellent contrast and resolution all the way out to the periphery of the lens
  • In addition, a circular aperture mechanism is used to assure smoother, more beautiful background defocusing
  • Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM):
  • Focusing lens group is driven by a Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM) in the lens itself, instead of a motor in the camera body
  • Responding instantly to AF drive control signals from the camera, the motor delivers power with smoothness and precision
  • Rear lens element shade:
  • The designed shape of the rear lens element shade has been updated in the SAL18552 to help suppress internal reflections and reduces flare and ghost for higher performance and better image quality
