    With 4D FOCUS, You'll Never Miss That Perfect Moment

    Capture unforgettable moments for posterity with the a68. The world's highest number of phase-detection AF points (79) covering a wide AF area will catch moments that last for a lifetime. The Exmor CMOS sensor and BIONZ X image processing engine deliver the imaging impact that you aim for. Dials, controls and displays make shooting more intuitive and immediate to optimize 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 performance.
    • 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 8 fps continuous shooting.

    Proprietary Translucent Mirror Technology

    Sony's unique design replaces a DSLR moving mirror with a fixed translucent mirror, which allows ultrafast 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. And the BIONZ X featuring 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 Processing Engine: Supports a number of state-of-the-art image processing technologies that add up to superior overall image quality.

    Supports 50Mbps 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 50Mbps (30p/25p,24.2p).

    Tiltable LCD Screen

    Tilt the LCD screen to shoot from most angles, max. 135 degrees up and 55 degrees down, including over your head or on the ground. The 2.7-type 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 color.
