Sony has launched a new camera in its SLT (Single Lens Translucent) range. The new 24-megapixel α68 (ILCA-68) accepts A-mount lenses and incorporates many features trickled down from the α77 II. The camera features Sony’s unique 4D Focus system that delivers superior AF performance even in lighting as low as EV-2.
The camera has 79 phase detection autofocus points including 15 cross type sensors along with a dedicated f/2.8 AF sensor point for low-light. The translucent mirror technology further adds constant AF tracking at up to 8fps continuous shooting.
The camera uses a 24MP APS-C Exmor CMOS image sensor capable of ISO 100-25600 sensitivity range. Its BIONZ X image processor uses detail reproduction and diffraction-reducing Technologies along with area-specific noise reduction for unmatched image quality.
The camera can record Full HD movies in XAVC S format for high bit rate recordings at up to 50 Mbps. A bright OLED Tru-Finder along with a 2.7-inch tiltable LCD complete the specialities. The camera is expected to be available from the second quarter of 2016.
