sony-alpha-slt-a68The Sony Alpha SLT-A68 uses the company’s Translucent Mirror Technology, which allows for 8 fps continuous shooting with full-time autofocus.  The ‘4D’ autofocus system is borrowed from the more expensive a77 II and features 79 points, 15 of which are cross-type.

The Alpha SLT-A68 has a 24MP CMOS sensor, which tops out at ISO 25600, and is paired with the not-as-new Bionz X processor. As with all of Sony’s A-mount cameras it has built-in image stabilization, so every lens you attach has shake reduction.

From a design standpoint the Alpha SLT-A68 has a curvy, SLR-style body with a 3″ (461k-dot) tilting LCD and SVGA OLED electronic viewfinder. It has twin control dials as well as an info display on the top plate. Also included is a Multi Interface Shoe that supports both flashes and advanced microphones.

The Alpha SLT-A68 can record Full HD video at 30p with continuous AF with a upper bit rate of 50Mbps. The camera can also output clean video over HDMI and also has a jack for an external microphone.

The body only kit is priced at $599 an adding the 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 lens brings the price up to $699.
