Take your photography to the next level with this a65 DSLR camera and included 18-55mm zoom lens. Featuring Sony's groundbreaking Translucent Mirror Technology, you can focus and shoot simultaneously for fast, precise performance and continuous shooting of up to 10 frames per second, complete with continuous auto focus. View setting adjustments in real time with a Tru-Finder™ OLED electronic viewfinder, and choose from three HD movie modes-super-smooth 60p, standard 60i or richly cinematic 24p-to optimize the look and feel of your videos (records in 29-minute segments).

Advanced-class performance
The new high-performance SLTA65 redefines entry-level interchangeable lens digital cameras thanks to Translucent Mirror Technology that enables a high-level balance of 24.3 effective megapixel resolution, 10 fps continuous shooting and continuous autofocusing.

Professional Class Shooting Speeds
The up-to 10 fps continuous shooting speed surpasses most professional interchangeable lens digital cameras and is provided at an ultra-high resolution of 24.3 megapixels and is made possible by Translucent Mirror Technology

Spectacular XGA OLED TruFinder
A high resolution and high contrast, 100% coverage, XGA OLED viewfinder means users can not only accurately frame their composition, but also preview settings like white balance, exposure and effects before even touching the shutter button.

Personal expression
Enjoy greater photographic expression by taking advantage of the 15 Picture Effects like HDR Painting and Rich Tone Monochrome (both of which utilize Sony's original image compositing technologies); Soft Focus; and Miniature, which makes the subject in the photograph look like a miniature model.

Astonishing HD Video Capture
SLTA65 provides 24p movie recording, the same frame rate as in cinematic movies, as well as 60p to best capture fast moving action. The P/A/S/M modes are also selectable, allowing users to enjoy flexible manual operation.

15 point AF with 3 cross sensors
The 15-point AF system includes 3 cross sensors, to deliver more accurate and reliable tracking.
