Sony debuts the A68 DSLR camera

It’s been a while since we discussed DSLR cameras for the last time here but here’s one new model for all the photographers out there – Sony has announced the A68 DSLR camera that promises to bring great image quality for a price that won’t break the bank. Besides now is the right time for such announcements – who will not want a new DSLR camera for the upcoming Christmas holidays?

The new Sony A68 camera is aimed at people who are new at photography or simply want to shoot pictures that need not have the greatest quality possible. This makes the A68 an entry-level model but even then the camera offers a 24 MP APS-C sensor that is connected to a hybrid electronic OLED viewfinder that provides 100 per cent coverage along with “faithful color reproduction”.  The A68 will also try to impress you with a new technology called 4D Focus that actually turns out to be a 79-point phase-detection AF system that can continuously shoot at up to 8 FPS, even in low-light conditions. In addition to all these features the A68 comes with a 2.7-inch TFT LCD display that can be tilted up to 135 degrees up and up to 55 degrees down, an ISO range of 100-25 600 and 1080p Full HD video recording.

The Sony A68 can be paired with Sony’s A-mount series of lenses and is expected to sell for around EUR 600 (body only) or EUR 700 with DT 18-55 mm F3.5-5.6 SAM II lens. The only thing that spoils the entire picture is that the A68 will be in stores in March 2016 so if a new DSLR camera is your thing for Christmas then you should keep on looking.
