Sony SLT-A58K Digital SLT Camera with 18-55mm Zoom Lens, HD 1080p, 20.1MP, 3" Screen, OLED EVF with 8GB Card and Case

Product information

Professional shooting needn’t be complicated with the Sony SLT-A58. Explore the world of high-quality imaging, supple shooting responses and interchangeable lenses. Capture smooth, detail-packed videos in Full HD. Create exciting artistic effects and grab pro-style portraits. All in a light, compact camera that's easy to use and carry.

You’ll be fully equipped to capture the moment right out of the box with the included 18-55mm lens, 8GB memory card and handy carry case.

Key benefits:

  • Create images with impact with the 20.1MP Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor. With its wide sensitivity range, it picks up on every little detail, even in dim situations. Together with the BIONZ image processing engine, it ensures crisp, clear pictures every time.
  • From fast-moving sports to fast-changing facial expressions, capture the moment with a continuous burst of images. A high-performance 15-point autofocus system (with 3 cross sensors) lets you shoot at a rapid 8 frames per second so you can follow the action as it happens.
  • While some photographers have a natural eye for a shot, most of us could use a little help. Auto Object Framing automatically proposes a pro-style crop of your original picture. Whether you use the suggested version or your original is up to you.
  • The high-contrast OLED Tru-Finder gives an accurate, real-time display of the shot you're about to take - right down to camera settings and exposure adjustments so you can compose with confidence.
  • Capture smooth, detailed Full HD videos with continuous autofocus - even when you’re zooming in or out. And unlike a traditional DSLR, you can watch the story unfold on the OLED Tru-Finder as you film.
  • Unlike a DSLR, Translucent Mirror technology means there’s no moving mirror so you can react quickly to get the shot you see.
  • Face Detection recognises up to 8 faces in a scene, optimising exposure, white balance, flash and other settings for portraits.

Feeling creative?

One of the biggest advantages of this camera is the sheer shooting flexibility on offer. You can use additional lenses to take wide-angle, telephoto, or close-up shots to suit just about any situation. The shorter the focal length (measured in mm), the wider the view will be – the longer the focal length, the more telescopic the picture. With a selection of interchangeable lenses at your disposal, the creative possibilities are endless.

Q & As

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Intuitive and lovely to use I chose this camera as I wanted to get back into taking high quality decent photographs after using my phone and a compact camera for too long, I also wanted something intuitive and uncomplicated. It is good value for an SLR/SLT type camera especially with the case and 8GB card (1000 images) included. The screen is a good size and flips up and down for high angle/low angle photography and you can switch between screen and viewfinder automatically. There is an internal instruction manual and it has some excellent settings for low light, panoramic and continuous shooting which I have used more than I thought, particularly the latter which takes a sequence of 8 photos and has so far guaranteed one brilliant one of my children with their eyes open at the same time and in focus. The photo quality is excellent and although it doesn't come with a large zoom which I am used to on my compact the quality of the images is so good that I can crop into an object and maintain that quality for printing. Overall it is an excellent camera for anyone wanting to get back into SLR type photography, it is intuitive and lovely to use. 12 August 2014
