The Sony A68 is a 24.2-megapixel DSLR camera with 79-point high-density phase detection AF system that covering a wide AF area will catch the moment to last for a life time. 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 optimise operability.
Superb AF performance
Get superior autofocus reliability with 79 high-density AF points, including 15 cross-type points. High performance in tracking moving subjects to enable continuous autofocus even during continuous shooting at 8fps. Autofocus performs well in low-light conditions as low as EV -2, which is equivalent to a moonlit night in which the naked eye has difficulty seeing objects.
In-body image stabilisation
Effective image stabilisation for any compatible lens, throughout the entire focal length range. Helps stabilize the viewfinder image while the shutter button is halfway pressed.
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.
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.
24.2 MP APS-C Exmor CMOS sensor
The large Exmor CMOS image sensor with approximately 24.2 MP boosts sensitivity and reduces noise with gapless on-chip lens design eliminating the gaps between micro-lenses to collect more light.
BIONZ X image 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-spciefic Noise Reduction selectively divides the image into areas based on patterns (such as edges, textures and evenly coloured-areas like blue skies), then applies the most appropriate noise reduction for each area.
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.
Supports 50Mbps XAVC S format
For extremely high image quality and minimal noise, record movies in the high-bit-rate XAVC S format, which enables Full HD image recording at 50Mbps (30p/25p, 24p).
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.
OLED Tru-Finder with 100% frame coverage
OLED advantages of tonal gradation, colour 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.
The control wheel on back is popular among α7 series camera users, and you can modify its functionality according to shooting intention for quick changes of camera settings as you look at the viewfinder.
Customisable function buttons
Assign frequently used functions to the customisable 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.
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.
