Sony A58 introduced with 20.1-megapixel sensor and OLED Tru-Finder

Sony has announced the new Alpha SLT-A58 camera, which replaces both the A37 and A57 shooters.

The Sony A58 was not a top secret prior to its unveiling. Sources have continuously leaked information about this camera and some of its features, like the 20.1-megapixel sensor, have been known, before the official announcement.

Sony A58 release date is April 2013
Sony SLT-A58 features a 20.1-megapixel image sensor and 8fps burst mode in Tele-zoom Continuous Advance Priority AE mode.

Sony A58, the next-generation translucent mirror camera

Sony’s latest camera is based on translucent mirror technology and it comes packed with a 20.1-megapixel Exmor APS-C HD CMOS image sensor. It is powered by the same BIONZ image processor found in the recently-launched NEX-3N mirrorless camera.

Sony added that the translucent mirror technology allows the light to fall onto both the image and autofocus sensors.

The camera can record full HD videos and high-quality images in low-light conditions, thanks to an ISO range between 100 and 16,000, confirmed Sony. The new A58 is compatible with 35 A-mount lenses, which are sure to satisfy the needs of all photographers.

Additionally, the camera features a technology called SteadyShot Inside, which helps photographers take steady images at very slow shutter speeds and when using higher zoom, even without a tripod.

The Sony SLT-A58 features a 2.7-inch tilt-angle LCD screen and a 800 x 600 OLED Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder. The new EVF displays the setting adjustments in real-time, allowing users to improve their composition. Furthermore, there are 15 artistic effects in the camera, including Toy Camera and Mono.

The focusing system receives help from the so-called Lock-on Autofocus system, which features 15-point autofocus system and better subject tracking. Moreover, the Tele-zoom Continuous Advance Priority AE mode allows photographers to take 8 frames per second in high-speed burst mode.

Sony A58 features a maximum ISO sensitivity of up to 16,000

Sony’s A58 camera also features Pixel Super Resolution, a technology which preserves image resolution even after cropping a photo. Speaking of which, the Auto Object Framing system is present in this new camera. Similar to the NEX-3N, it automatically creates composition, in order to frame photos to give them a more professional aspect.

The Sony A58 is the first A-mount lens camera to support Triluminos Color, a technology which displays vivid images and videos on Bravia TVs with Triluminos Display.

The new camera supports RAW shooting and features a built-in flash. Its release date has been scheduled for April 2013 for a price of £449. The package includes a new 18-55mm lens. For extra  £150, customers will receive a secondary 55-200mm lens.
