About Sony SLT-A58

Introducing the Sony Alpha SLT-A58 interchangeable lens camera, a DSLR that is designed for first-time interchangeable-lens camera users, and includes a new Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor with approx. 20.1 effective megapixels as well as a SVGA OLED Tru-Finder within its sophisticated compact body. Translucent Mirror Technology realizes high image quality and easy live view shooting, while Lock-on AF and Auto Object Framing enable anyone to capture images of supreme quality.

You get incredible detail and gorgeous enlargements. Thanks to the 20.1 megapixel APS-C sensor size and Sony Exmor APS HD CMOS technology, the camera achieves high resolution with no penalty in low-light sensitivity or sensor noise.

Other DSLRs can shoot. Or they can focus with the speed and precision of Phase Detection AF. They cannot do both at once. The SLT-A58, with Translucent Mirror Technology, directs light to both the image sensor and the Phase Detection AF sensor simultaneously.

Record stunning high quality 1080 Full HD Video in either 60i or 24p frames per second. Records in your choice of 1080/60i or 24p Blu-Ray quality AVCHD format or in PC-friendly 1080/30p MP4 format.

Using the 15-point autofocus sensor and Sony's subject recognition technologies, Object Tracking AF can maintain accurate focus on your subject even when it changes position in the frame.

Sony SLT-A58 Features

  • High Contrast EVF: The Tru-finder Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) is super bright and easy to see with 1x magnification, ultra-sharp with 1.2 million dots and provides 100% frame coverage. Adjustable magnification optimizes eye-point for users with eyeglasses.
  • Up to ISO 16000 sensitivity: With a new Exmor sensor that features the same adaptive noise reduction technology from Sony's flagship SLT-A99V, the SLT-A58 easily offers a wide range of sensitivity from ISO 16000.
  • Auto Object Framing: Easily create studio quality portraits of still lifes, moving subjects and even macro close-ups using the iAuto internal exposure intelligence found in the SLT-A58.
  • SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization: You'll reduce blur with every A-mount lens because it provides compensation equivalent to approximately 2 to 4.5 additional steps in shutter speed.
  • Advanced 15-point AF system: To maximize the value of Translucent Mirror Technology, Sony incorporates Phase Detection AF of great sophistication. Three cross-type sensors to maximize focus precision.
  • Large 2.7" Tilt-able screen: Tilt it up or down to frame high and low angle shots that would otherwise be hit-or-miss. Fold it flush to the camera with the LCD exposed for shooting or protected for travel.
  • Auto HDR built-in: Captures more scene dynamic range than a single exposure can handle and more range than photo film. Combines the best highlight detail from one shot, the best mid-tones from a second and the best shadow detail from a third for one incredible shot.
  • Picture Effects: Ordinary scenes become extraordinary photos and movies with Picture Effects. Choose from 11 modes and 15 effects that significantly increase visual impact byadjusting camera parameters and applying advanced processing techniques.
  • Multi-frame NR: Experience incredible low-light shooting without a flash. The camera captures six images in a fraction of a second. Combining the data from all six, it creates a single image with a reduction in noise equivalent to two additional steps of ISO sensitivity.
  • Hand-held Twilight: Get cleaner and sharper nighttime pictures beyond the capability of traditional cameras without using flash or a tripod. The camera captures six images in a fraction of a second.

Questions about this item:

ikuyasu u  What kind of SD card should I get with this? Other than the ones by Sony, what type of SD card should I pick up? Could you tell me the keywords? Thank you very much.
Curtis M  I think that most SDHC class 10 cards will work. Sony and SanDisk may be the most reliable. You probably want a read speed of 40 MB/second, though if you'll be recording high resolution video, a read speed of 95 MB/second is better (write speed is slower than read speed in each case, but the cards marked with the highest read speeds should also have the highest write speeds). Search terms would be _SDHC class 10 card_ (without the "_"), but then you'll want to filter by brand or sort by price.
ikuyasu u  I just ordered this: http://www.adorama.com/ISO32GUHS110.html?utm_source=RSYS&utm_medium=TransactionalEmail&utm_campaign=1point0product and Adorama ships it today(?) for free. Hope this is a correct one and I got a good deal on the quality.
