Sony A68 Review

 

The Sony A68 is a new interchangeable lens camera that uses Translucent Mirror Technology to offer high-speed shooting and a smaller body size. The 24.2 megapixel A68 features up to 8fps burst shooting, 1080p Full HD Movies in the XAVC Sv format,...

The Sony A68 is an excellent alternative to a mid-range DSLR, offering the same excellent auto-focusing performance as the top-of-the-range A77 II camera.

Sony A68 Review

 

Surprise! Well over a year since the last SLT A-mount body was unveiled (the A77 II), Sony Europe unveiled the new Sony A68, a mid-level translucent mirror interchangeable lens camera with an interesting mix of tech borrowed from the A77 II as well as...

Sony A68

 

While Sony's made a name for itself in recent years with its mirrorless models, it's still making DSLTs. The “T” here stands for “translucent” and indicates that the mirror, rather than being missing altogether, lets light through to the sensor without...

If you’re not tied to Canon or Nikon and want an affordable mid-range camera, the Sony offers a good deal for your cash.

Sony Alpha A68 review

 

Inheriting features from the more advanced A77 II, the A68 appears as a capable, cut-price alternative for the advanced beginner

Value for money ; Fast and capable autofocus ; High-quality electronic viewfinder

Poor quality LCD screen ; Over-sensitive shutter-release ; Uninspiring build quality

Sony has produced a camera that offers real performance and value for money for enthusiasts and ambitious beginners, but the mediocre kit lens, build quality and rear display show that corners have been cut.

Sony A68 priced $700 in US when it arrives in April

 

Looking like a hodgepodge of pieces from the company's other cameras, Sony Europe unveiled an addition to its dSLR-style camera line, formerly known as the SLT (single-lens translucent) and now dubbed the ILCA (interchangeable lens camera A-mount)...

The enhancements certainly make it a real update over its predecessor, the A58, but I suspect this is just a move on Sony's part to offer a cheap dSLR to compete in markets where people are still hewing to Canon and Nikon instead of opting for a...

Sony Alpha a68 review

  (Rating Hidden)

Sony has focused on a lot of compact system cameras and it's been a while since it released a DSLR camera - enter the Sony Alpha 68. Based on the SLT system, the A68 is a good alternative to a mid-range DSLR, with above average image quality in low...

Sony Alpha SLT-A68 Review

 

We review the new Sony Alpha A68, with an updated focus system, and top LCD screen.

24-megapixel sensor ; Good colour reproduction ; Top LCD screen ; Good battery life ; Built in image stabilisation sensor ; DRO / HDR modes for extended dynamic range ; Fast focus and shutter response ; 79 AF points with wide coverage ; Fast live view

Overly sensitive shutter release button ; Sony 18-55mm SAM II isn't the best lens ; Sensor based image stabilisation doesn't work for video ; 2.7inch screen ; Lacks Wi-Fi

If you look at the alternatives available, you can choose between a DSLR, and all of the competitors at this price point feature built-in Wi-Fi. Looking at the mirrorless alternatives, all of these also offer Wi-Fi, as well as quicker continuous...
