Details

Advance your images with the creative freedom of interchangeable-lens DSLR photography. The Sony Alpha a58 SLT-A58K camera combines innovative technologies with user-friendly features for intuitive handling and impressive quality. The 20.1-megapixel Exmor HD APS sensor delivers richly-detailed images with a truly professional look. Combined with Sony CMOS technology, the a58 achieves high resolution and excellent low-light performance with reduced noise. Thanks to award-winning Translucent Mirror Technology, you'll be able to shoot and focus simultaneously for ultimate speed and precision. Lock-on AF helps guarantee tack-sharp photos, even when shooting quick-moving subjects. And with a wide range of sensitivity—from ISO 100 all the way to ISO 16000—your photos and Full HD video1 will shine with noticeable clarity and reduced graininess, even in challenging lighting conditions. Includes an 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom lens.

20.1 MP Exmor® HD APS sensor with 5 FPS continuous shooting

Every scene is captured beautifully, from corner to corner, with fine details and rich tonal gradations thanks to Sony’s proprietary Exmor™ APS HD CMOS sensor. Its large size delivers high sensitivity, attractive defocusing effects, and low noise in wide-ranging shooting situations including dimly lit environments. Impressive 20.1-effective-megapixel resolution also brings every detail to life.

Lock-on AF for even easier focusing of moving subjects

Now it’s easier than ever to keep moving subjects in focus. Using Sony Translucent Mirror Technology and subject size detection, the new Lock-on AF continuously adjusts target frame size based on various subject characteristics and dramatically increases the in-focus rate. Even if your subject’s face cannot be detected, it ensures smooth, stable focusing using the optimal AF point — without having to search.

Auto Object Framing intelligently fills the frame with your subject

Easily create studio quality portraits of still lifes, moving subjects and even macro close-ups using the iAuto internal exposure intelligence found in the SLT-A58. Simply photograph the subject and the Auto Portrait Framing feature will save an additional, optimally framed image in portrait or landscape orientation. Combining Face Detection and By Pixel Super Resolution technologies with Rule of Thirds, and Auto Object Framing provides enhanced images for beautifully composed and appealingly balanced full resolution portraits.

Large 2.7” Tilt-able, 460K dot Clear Photo LCD screen

Tilt it up or down to frame high- and low-angle shots that would otherwise be hit-or-miss. Fold it flush to the camera with the LCD exposed for shooting or protected for travel.

Multi-frame NR

Experience incredible low-light shooting without a flash. The camera captures six images in a fraction of a second. Combining the data from all six, it creates a single image with a reduction in noise equivalent to two additional steps of ISO sensitivity. Sensitivity selectable up to ISO 25600. (Recommended for still subjects.)

1080/60i/24p Full AVCHD™ or 1080/30p MP4 movies

Create movies of amazing clarity at Full HD resolution with full-time continuous phase-detection AF, the same swift, accurate focusing used during still photography. Movies can be recorded at 60i for super smooth playback or 24p for a rich cinematic look. You can also use P/A/S/M exposure modes to expand your movie making creativity.4

Up to ISO 16000 sensitivity with advanced noise reduction

With a new Exmor™ sensor that features the same adaptive noise reduction technology from Sony’s flagship SLT-A99V, the SLT-A58 easily offers a wide range of sensitivity from ISO 100 to ISO 16000. Even in dim lighting, you can shoot beautiful photos with natural tonal gradations and low noise — without using a flash. Auto ISO provides outstanding results in most lighting situations and you can select settings manually to suit particular occasions. Excellent low-light performance is made possible by cutting-edge features like the same area-specific noise reduction as found on the a99.

Advanced 15-point AF system with 3 Cross-sensors

To maximize the value of Translucent Mirror Technology, Sony incorporates Phase Detection AF of great sophistication. Three cross-type sensors to maximize focus precision.

Picture Effects

Ordinary scenes become extraordinary photos and movies with Picture Effects. Choose from 11 modes and 15 effects that significantly increase visual impact by adjusting camera parameters and applying advanced processing techniques.

Translucent Mirror Technology™ accelerates AF performance

Sony’s Translucent Mirror Technology™ simultaneously directs light to the image sensor and AF sensor on a continuous basis to realize full-time live view shooting and accelerated full-time continuous phase-detection autofocusing even during HD movie shooting. It’s the cornerstone of Sony interchangeable-lens camera technology.

High Contrast SVGA OLED Tru-Finder EVF

The OLED viewfinder makes it easy to shoot stills and movies in almost any lighting condition and allows for live-view shooting thanks to Translucent Mirror Technology™. The ultra-sharp, bright 1.44 million dot display provides 100% field-of-view frame coverage that is perfect for accurately monitoring results as you shoot.

SteadyShot INSIDE™image stabilization

Image stabilization reduces blur by compensating for camera shake. SteadyShot INSIDE™ image stabilization is built into the camera body itself. You'll reduce blur with every A-mount lens because it provides compensation equivalent to approximately 2 to 4.5 additional steps in shutter speed, allowing for more hand held opportunities in low light or longer focal lengths.

Auto HDR built into camera

Captures more scene dynamic range than a single exposure can handle—and more range than photo film. Combines the best highlight detail from one shot, the best mid-tones from a second and the best shadow detail from a third for one incredible shot. Captures in a split second. (Recommended for still subjects.)

Hand-held Twilight

Get cleaner and sharper nighttime pictures—beyond the capability of traditional cameras—without using flash or a tripod. The camera captures six images in a fraction of a second. Combining the data with separate algorithms for still and moving parts of the picture reduces blur, minimizes noise and enables extraordinary detail.
