Sony Announces New A68 SLT Camera

By 08:15 Wed, 28 Jul 2021 Comments

Sony has announced a recent member in its mostly forgotten SLT range of cameras, i.e. cameras that sit between DSLRs and mirrorless cameras with a fixed translucent mirror that allows the AF to continue working even while shooting.

The a68 has a 79 point autofocus system, which Sony is calling 4D FOCUS, for some reason. The translucent mirror technology allows the capturing camera to have continuous tracking and 8fps burst mode with continuous autofocus. Behind the mirror is a 24 megapixel APS-C EXMOR CMOS sensor with an ISO range of 100-25600 with a recent BIONZ X image processor.

The Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) viewfinder has a resolution of 1.4 million dots, and the tilting 2.7-inch Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) has 460k dot resolution. The capturing camera also features built-in image stabilization that works with all 34 A-mount lenses. It can also record videos in up to 1080p with 50Mbps XAVC S codec.

The a68 will be available starting March 2016 for €600 body only or €700 with DT18-55mm F3.5-5.6 SAM II lens.
