Sony Alpha SLT-A68 Digital SLR Camera & 18-55mm II Lens

Make the feeling last a lifetime.

Inheriting many pro-style features from the acclaimed A77 II, the Sony Alpha A68 features Sony's unique 4D FOCUS system that delivers extraordinary AF performance under any shooting conditions – even in low-lighting conditions. This system utilizes 79 autofocus points – the most AF points on any interchangeable lens camera with a dedicated phase-detection AF sensor. Additionally, the camera utilizes Sony's unique Translucent Mirror Technology to deliver constant AF tracking at up to 8 fps. The camera features a 24.2 MP APS-C Exmor CMOS sensor with a wide ISO 100-25,600 sensitivity range, allowing it to produce outstanding image quality for both still images and video. The sensor is teamed with a powerful BIONZ X image processor that uses Detail Reproduction and Diffraction-reducing Technologies plus Area-specific Noise Reduction, resulting in pristine, finely detailed shots every time.

Full HD movies use the efficient XAVC S format, enabling high bit rate recordings at up to 50 Mbps with outstanding detail and low noise. With Translucent Mirror Technology, shooters can enjoy non-stop continuous autofocus with accurate subject tracking during video shooting, producing crisp, professional looking footage. With a powerful array of advanced controls and capabilities, the A68 has plenty to offer experienced amateurs as well as step-up photographers and first time interchangeable lens camera customers.

Framing stills and movies is a pleasure through the clear, bright OLED Tru-Finder, which features 100% frame coverage with high contrast and accurate color reproduction. Complementing the Tru-Finder, the 2.7-inch LCD monitor, tilts up to 135 degrees upwards or 55 degrees downwards for comfortable composition from a wide variety of shooting angles. The A68 also features SteadyShot INSIDE stabilization to reduce the effects of camera shake and allow for blur-free handheld shooting at all focal lengths, with any compatible lens. Additionally, the inclusion of a Multi Interface Shoe and Multi Terminal lets users expand their creative options with a wide range of optional accessories, including flashes, lights, microphones and remote commanders.

This outfit includes a solid, all-purpose DT 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 SAM II Zoom Lens. Perfect for every day use, from snapshots and group photos, to landscapes and portraits. This conveniently compact, lightweight lens features one ED glass element, circular aperture, and a Smooth Autofocus Motor.

Key Features:

24.2MP for Images of incredible quality
Housing a large Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor with approx. 24.2 effective megapixels for incredible detail and gorgeous enlargements, the A68 exhibits higher sensitivity and lower noise levels throughout a wide sensitivity range of ISO 100 to 25,600, achieving high resolution even in low light.

Stunning low light photos and video
The A68 features high sensitivity thanks to the Exmor CMOS sensor and powerful BIONZ X processor. You get stunning detail and clean, low light images from ISO range 100 -- 25600 for photos and ISO100 - 12800 equivalent for movies. And for an additional burst of light, the A68 features a pop-up flash.

EXMOR CMOS IMAGE SENSOR BIONZ X PROCESSING ENGINE

With 4D FOCUS, you'll never miss that perfect moment
The A68 is equipped with Sony's 4D Focus system. Featuring the world's most Phase Detection AF points on a dedicated AF sensor covering a wide area of the frame. 79 AF points - of which 15 are cross-type and placed in the most-frequently-used central area of the sensor -- utilize the new AF algorithm which instantly recognizes and reliably tracks the desired subject -- even in challenging low-light situations (EV-2). Other Auto Focus features include: AF tracking, Lock-on AF, AF Range control and Eye AF.

8 FPS continuous shooting with AF
Track every movement and capture every decisive moment with up to 8 frames per second continuous shooting. The tracking algorithm of the A68's AF system and the Translucent Mirror Technology meet high performance standards in tracking moving subjects to enable continuous autofocus even during continuous shooting at 8fps (or 5fps at maximum resolution of approx. 24 effective megapixels).

Every Lens is Stabilized
The A68 incorporates sensor shift technology called SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization. This means every lens you use -- from the widest angle to longest telephoto -- corrects for camera shake and reduces blur, resulting in crisp and sharp images. It provides compensation equivalent to approximately 2 to 4.5 additional steps in shutter speed, allowing for more hand held opportunities in low light or longer focal lengths.

Make movies like a pro
Make movie magic with Full HD 1920 x 1080 video in 24p/30p frame-rates. Made even easier with the A68's 79 point AF (auto focus) system -- tracking moving subjects is not a problem. Selectable in-camera -- XAVC S for broadcast quality at high 50Mb/s, Blu-ray quality AVCHD or simple and easier upload to the web MP4 codecs are available. For serious videographers, uncompressed 8bit HD 4:2:2 video output to external recording devices is available via the HDMI connection.

OLED Tru-Finder Electronic Viewfinder
There's never been anything quite like the OLED Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder. For size, speed and brightness even after sunset, this is a gem. It begins with 1,440,000 dots for amazing resolution and high contrast ratio for incredible depth and in almost any lighting. You can also see the results of camera adjustments in real time with 100% frame coverage and superb color and detail, including the ability to display the effects of various camera settings, the use of MF Assist and a peaking function for fine-tuning the focus

Large 2.7" tiltable, 460K dot LCD screen
Thanks to the Translucent Mirror Technology for continuous live-view, you can easily frame your shots with the large 2.7" 460K dot LCD screen. Tilt it up 135° or down 55° to frame high- and low-angle shots that would otherwise be hit-or-miss.

Full-Time LiveView in LCD or EVF
You can use both the LCD monitor and OLED Electronic Viewfinder for composing shots in LiveView. Both provide a what-you-see-is-what-you-get preview of white balance, focus, depth of field, exposure and 100% framing accuracy, plus informative on-screen displays.

Direct controls for fast intuitive operability
The A68 has all the "must have" features of midrange camera including a backlit top display to quickly check camera settings and both front and rear control dials and 10 customizable button. The control wheel on back is easily accessible for multiple functions which you can modify to your shooting style. Easily reassign frequently used functions to any of the 10 customizable buttons to activate any of 49 functions for faster, more intuitive operation.

TOP DISPLAY PANEL CONTROL WHEEL
