Our Verdict

Sony have been the camera industry's trailblazer's of late, and with the Sony a68 DSLR they are displaying that their SLR game is as strong as their mirrorless and compact game. The a68 packs a 24-Megapixel APS-C sensor, offering 4D focus, full HD video recording and a tiltable OLED LCD screen - and is fully compatible with the vast range of existing A-mount lenses.

It's been heavily touted, but what is 4D Focus? Well, Sony's innovative focusing system operates using area and depth in combination with time to predict the subject's movements. One key feature being it will not be distracted by new subjects coming into shot, it is intelligent enough to keep tracking what you want to be. The technology also allows for greater low light operation, and is stated to focus in EV-2 lighting.

As with the most recent Sony DSLRs this camera is actually an SLT (Single Lens Translucent), which uses translucent mirrors to enable faster autofocus as the mirror is remaining in place - saving precious milliseconds! This is the perfect camera for those looking to take the step up to SLR photography, with the right amount of features to get the best possible image quality - and with the ease of use to welcome you gently into a more complex world of picture taking.

Kit lenses are usually bundled for convenience, and the 18-55mm will give you a nice range of focal lengths to get started with.

If you already own an arsenal of A-mount lenses, or have a different a-mount lens and a68 combination in mind, the Sony a68 body only option is also available.

We Love
  • AF is the real killer feature in this camera, and 79 AF points is a top of the range squashing number!
  • The LCD display on top of the camera, a classic yet underused feature on most of Sony's DSLR range
  • 10 customisable buttons - great flexibility for those who use more than the standard functions.
