Equipped with technology that offers excellent AF performance even during low-light situations, the new Sony Alpha A68 SLT camera has just been unveiled by the company. 4D focus is what this entry-level shooter prefers calling its main functionality.
It basically allows fast and accurate tracking of autofocus with 79 AF points. Even in conditions as dimly lit as EV-2, the phase detection system of the Sony Alpha A68 uses all its 79 autofocus detection points in order to deliver fast and wide-area AF with predictive tracking which locks onto fast-moving subjects.
Moreover, owing to the fact that this is an SLT snapper with the unique Translucent Mirror Technology onboard, it is able to offer constant AF tracking at up to 8fps continuous shooting. Sony has fitted inside it a 24MP APS-C Exmor CMOS sensor capable of presenting an ISO range of 100 to 25600.
The BIONZ X image processing engine has of course been pushed inside the Alpha A68, while a precise OLED Tru-Finder offering 100 percent frame coverage has also been granted to it. Besides, a 2.7-inch LCD monitor has made its way into the camera as well. It can tilt up to 135 degrees upwards and 55 degrees downwards.
Sony has revealed that its new device features built-in image stabilization which can be taken advantage of with all of the 34 A-mount lenses that complement it. Lastly, this shooter is capable of shooting videos at 1080p resolution and 60fps speed.
The new Sony Alpha A68 SLT camera will be released by the Japanese company in March next year at a body-only cost of €600. When bought with a DT18-55mm F3.5-5.6 SAM II lens, the price will go up to €700.
