Sony a68 A-mount Camera Shipping With 4D FOCUS


The new a68 (ILCA-68)camera from Sony lets enthusiastic photographers discover more creative opportunities with their collection of A-mount lenses.

Inheriting many pro-style features from the a77 II, the new a68 features Sony?s 4D FOCUS system designed to deliver great AF performance under any shooting conditions - even in lighting as low as EV-2.

This phase detection system uses no less than 79 autofocus detection points including 15 cross points, plus a dedicated F2.8 AF sensor point for dimly-lit scenes. It all adds up to fast, wide area AF with predictive tracking that locks onto fast-moving subjects. And thanks to Sony's Translucent Mirror Technology, the a68 delivers constant AF tracking at up to 8fps continuous shooting.

Whether you're shooting stills or movies, image quality is assured by the 24MP APS-C Exmor CMOS image sensor with wide ISO 100-25600iv sensitivity range. It's teamed with Sony's speedy BIONZ X image processor that uses Detail Reproduction and Diffraction-reducing Technologies plus Area-specific Noise Reduction for detailed shots.

Full HD movies use the XAVC Sv format for high bit rate recordings at up to 50 Mbps. And thanks to Sony's Translucent Mirror Technology, you can enjoy non-stop continuous autofocus that tracks moving subjects, whichever format you choose to record in.

The camera is equipped with an OLED Tru-Finder with a 100% frame coverage. Complementing the Tru-Finder, the 2.7-type LCD monitor tilts up to 135 degrees upwards or 55 degrees downwards for comfortable composition from a wide variety of shooting angles. The backlit top display allows quick confirmation of camera settings, whether you're shooting handheld or on a tripod.

As found on the a7 series, there?s a control wheel on the camera?s rear that allows quick fingertip adjustment of camera settings. In addition, 10 customisable buttons can be assigned for instant access to frequently-used functions. There is a front control dial for quick adjustments of settings and a grip.

The a68 A-mount interchangeable lens camera from Sony will be from March 2016 for approximately €600 body only or €700 with DT18-55mm F3.5-5.6 SAM II lens.
