Product Description

Explore Your Creativity

You know it’s time to step up to a camera that will really push the limits of your creative talent. A camera with higher resolution, enhanced image quality and more responsive autofocusing that’s light enough to go anywhere without weighing you down. The compact SLT-A65 puts creative shooting in your hands with advanced Translucent Mirror Technology, interchangeable lenses, fast continuous shooting and extremely high 24.3 megapixel resolution. Just what you need to fulfil your potential and perfect your photography.

Rapid Response with Translucent Mirror Technology

Translucent Mirror Technology provides high precision, SLR quality performance for both still image capture and Full HD movies. By replacing the mirror box used in conventional SLR cameras with mirror box containing a fixed translucent mirror that does not need to be raised and lowered each time the shutter is released, this innovative technology gives ultra high-speed continuous shooting and auto focusing. Perfect for catching spontaneous moments in the best possible quality.

With improved sensitivity, you’ll shoot higher quality photos at high-sensitivity settings. TMT allows both viewfinder shooting and live-view shooting using the LCD monitor on the back of the camera while providing Full-time “always on” Continuous AF during both photo and movie shooting.

Translucent Mirror Technology provides high precision, SLR quality performance for both still image capture and Full HD movies.

High-speed Continuous Shooting at 10fps (Frames Per Second)

The innovative SLT-A65 offers the speed and precision you need to 'focus between the moments' and shoot high-speed continuous action at up to 10fps. Catch the decisive moment with full-time continuous AF. Tele-Zoom Continuous Advance Priority AE zooms in with around 1.4x magnification to keep your subject in precise focus in every frame – ideal for capturing sports action and facial expressions.

Sophisticated 19-point AF System

This camera also includes a newly developed 19-point AF system with 11 cross sensors for higher autofocusing precision. By spreading the 19 AF sensors across a wide auto focusing area, subjects are clearly captured. The 11 cross sensors track the subject more accurately than sensors with only vertical or horizontal detection. The result? Continual focus on your subject without lag or interruption.

See the Difference with High Resolution

Despite being lighter and more compact than a traditional DSLR, the SLT-A65 includes a large, high resolution Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor with 24.3 megapixels. Shoot professional quality images with intense colour, rich tonal gradation and subtle background defocusing effects. This sophisticated sensor is identical in size and performance to those used in Sony a digital SLR cameras and more than 13 times larger than the 1/2.4" sensors found in most digital compact cameras. Noise is reduced in both the analog (pre-AD signal conversion) and digital (post-AD signal conversion) stages by an on-chip column AD converter and dual-noise reduction circuit.

Working with the sensor is a bIONZ processor, designed to process vast amounts of information from the sensor at high speed. Ideal for handling intensive tasks such as ultra high-speed 10 fps shooting, Multi Frame NR, Sweep Panorama image stitching and Hand-held Twilight image composition. High ISO sensitivity of 100-16000 gives you the freedom to shoot at fast shutter speeds indoors or in dimly lit environments such as candlelit weddings without the need for a flash.

Smooth Quick AF Full HD Movies

Catch the action, the moment it appears. With Translucent Mirror Technology, movies can be captured utilising full-time continuous AF. The high-speed phase-detection AF system precisely tracks moving subjects and with electronic SteadyShot image stabilisation on board, your film will be stable and judder-free. Shoot super smooth Full HD 1920 x 1080 movies in razor-sharp detail at 50p. The large Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor gives outstanding light sensitivity for shooting at dawn, dusk or indoors and sound recorded by a stereo microphone on the mirror housing gives excellent quality with low noise.

Advanced Quick AF Live View

With Advanced Quick AF Live View, high-resolution image data from the sensor can be displayed in the viewfinder as well as on the LCD monitor. You choose which you want to monitor while shooting. Switching is automatic for ease of use and you can activate Quick AF Live View in the viewfinder simply by putting your eye to the eyepiece.

New enhanced Picture Effect lets you modify images by changing colours, adding textures or including special visual effects – all without a PC.

High Resolution, High Contrast Viewfinder

See your world in perfect clarity and detail. The XGA OLED Tri-Finder in SLT-A77 features an Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) for higher resolution, higher contrast and 100% frame coverage. This viewfinder offers a wide viewing angle of 33.3° and a high eye-point of 27mm so you can shoot and review images without taking your eyes from the finder. OLED technology provides the power, contrast and response required to perfectly reproduce scenes without motion blur or residual image. Detail is superb and allows image enlargement for more precise focusing and framing.

3-way tilt LCD*

View images more comfortably, however you’re shooting, with the world’s first camera display that moves in three ways. Compared with conventional two-hinged displays that tilt only horizontally and vertically, this display gives you more flexibility when shooting at angles, using a tripod or from low and high positions.

Go Manual for Precise Control

Switch to manual exposure and precisely control light for even more creative freedom. P/A/S/M modes provide perfect control of defocus and brightness. This camera can also record in 25p — for that more traditional movies look, enhancing your video with a truly artistic feel.

Advanced Photographic Features

The sophisticated SLT-A65 is packed with technology to help you create perfect photos. From aberration correction, Auto HDR, D-Range Optimizer to Shot Result Preview for displaying results of aperture and shutter speed settings, you’ll have all the tools you need to maximize every shot.

Easy Creative Photography

With the SLT-A65, anyone can experience the satisfaction of artistic photography. Picture Effect lets you modify images by changing colours, adding textures or including special visual effects – all without a PC. Transform simple shots into works of art using modes such as Toy Camera or Partial Colour.

Interchangeable Lens Flexibility

Enjoy all the flexibility of a traditional SLR and the technological advances of the SLT. The SLT-A65 is compatible with the full range of system A-mount lenses - including fisheye, super wide-angle, telephoto, macro, and other fixed focal length and zoom lenses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sony Alpha A65 Camera 20 Nov 2012
By Sally B
Style Name:Body Only|Verified Purchase
I am still getting to grips with all the features of this camera, but I got on well with the A100, and this is much quieter and faster, especially on Continuous Shooting, which I use particularly for birds. I didn't get the A77 because of it's considerable weight and because of all the extra buttons etc. on it. I was attracted by it's weather-proofing, but I couldn't have coped with anything more complicated, heavier and bulkier. Once I get the hang of it, I think I shall be very pleased with the A65.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent camera 20 Mar 2013
Style Name:Body Only|Verified Purchase
Truly an excellent camera. To find out more about it visit the A65 camera with standard lens page on Amazon. There you will find info not repeated here. The best value-for-money 24 MP SLT (or SLR) you can buy. Misses only minor features of its larger, more expensive stable mates the A77 and A99. If you are careful with it the plastic rather than titanium body will serve you well. I purchased the camera body only so that I could purchase the equally excellent SAL 16-50 f2.8 SSM lens (also through Amazon)as my standard lens. This is much better than the one that comes bundled with the camera. Its fast, wider and has the high-tech plus that the updated firmware in the camera is programmed with any small fault of the lens and therefore corrects for vignetting, chromatic aberration, etc specific to the lens. Very sharp photos with this combination and its amazingly fast and quiet to focus.
