With 4D FOCUS, you'll never miss that perfect moment
Capture more unforgettable moments for posterity. With the alpha68, the world's highest number of phase-detection AF points
(79) covering a wide AF area will catch the moment to last for a lifetime. The Exmor CMOS sensor and BIONZ X image
processing engine deliver the imaging impact you aim for. Dials, controls and displays make shooting more intuitive and
immediate to optimise operability.
Superb AF performance
The world's highest number of phase-detection AF points (79) covering a wide AF area for ultimate accuracy and tracking
Sensational sensor and processor
The Exmor CMOS sensor and BIONZ X image processing engine achieve high image quality and wide sensitivity range.
Versatile, convenient control
The top display panel and rear control wheel make functions quick and easy to access and use.
79-point high-density phase-detection AF system covers more action
Get superior autofocus reliability with 79 high-density AF points, including 15 cross-type points. Translucent Mirror
Technology enables precise phase-detection AF even with continuous shooting and movie modes.
World's most AF points
79 phase-detection AF points provide wide-frame coverage and ultimate tracking accuracy.
Fast AF speed
Distance measuring phase-detection sensor for instant subject focus.
Steadfast AF tracking
Advanced algorithm maintains clear focus for up to 8fps continuous shooting.
Proprietary Translucent Mirror Technology
Sony's unique design replaces a DSLR moving mirror with a fixed translucent mirror, which enables ultra-fast shooting
with continuous use of accurate phase detection AF.
High image quality and wide ISO range for stills/movies
The large Exmor CMOS image sensor with approximately 24.2 MP provides for high image resolution, delicate tonal
gradation and expressive bokeh. The BIONZ X features advanced image reproducing technologies and processes vast data
from the sensor at high speed for more realistic images. The duo is a perfect match for shooting in the wide ISO range
of 100-25600 and producing beautifully sharp, clear results.
24.2 MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
A large APS-C size Exmor CMOS image sensor with approximately 24.2 MP effective resolution.
BIONZ X image processing engine
Supports a number of state-of-the-art image processing technologies that add up to superior overall image
Supports 50 Mbps XAVC S format
For high image quality and minimal noise, you can record movies in the high-bit-rate XAVC S format, which enables Full
HD image recording at 50 Mbps (60p/50p, 30p/25p, 24p).
Tiltable LCD screen
Tilt the LCD screen to shoot from most angles, max.135 degree up and 55 degree down, including over your head or on the
ground. The 6.7 cm (2 1/2) screen displays clear, brilliant images. Low reflectivity deepens blacks and sharpens
contrast. Brightness is adjustable.
Smart viewfinder for better photos
The bright, high-contrast OLED Tru-Finder makes it easier to expertly plan and preview shots, as it reproduces real-time
image data with rich tonal gradation and faithful colour.
Ultimate precision and craftsmanship
Broaden your photographic horizons with an expanded line-up of superb lenses. The alpha68 empowers you to fully enjoy the
renowned performance of professional-grade glass from Sony and ZEISS.
