Capture decisive moments like a true professional. The Alpha a58 unites high-end camera technology with more features and user-friendly operation to enable comfortable, carefree shooting with impressive results. Every curve and detail of its sophisticated body has been painstakingly refined to enhance your handling ease. Whether shooting photos or Full HD video, it's now easier than ever to elevate your images with the refinement and creative freedom of interchangeable-lens photography.
The Alpha a58 features a 20.1-megapixel Exmor HD APS sensor for lavishly detailed photos that make for gorgeous enlargements - not to mention Full HD video of incredible richness and clarity. Thanks to the large APS-C size sensor and premium Sony Exmor APS HD CMOS technology, the camera achieves high resolution with no penalty in low-light sensitivity or sensor noise. And with continuous shooting of up to 5 fps, you'll never miss a moment.
Unlike other DSLRs, the a58 captures up to 5 fps at full 20.1-megapixel resolution with continuous autofocus thanks to the power of Sony's award-winning Translucent Mirror Technology. This groundbreaking technology directs light to both the image sensor and Phase Detection AF sensor simultaneously for enhanced autofocus performance plus blazing speed and precision.
When shooting quick-moving subjects - think kids playing soccer or a seagull in flight - it can sometimes be difficult to maintain a crisp focus. Using Sony's Translucent Mirror technology and advanced face/object detection, lock-on AF continuously adjusts the target frame size based on various subject characteristics and dramatically increases the in-focus rate. Even if your subject's face cannot be detected, the lock-on AF ensures smooth, stable focusing using the optimal AF point - without having to search.
