SONY SLT-A58K Digital SLR Camera with 18mm-55mm Lens

Bring Vibrant Scenes to Life

Capture decisive moments like a true professional. The Alpha a58 unites high-end camera technology with innovative new features and user-friendly operation to enable comfortable, carefree shooting with impressive results. Every curve and detail of its sophisticated body has been painstakingly refined to enhance your handling ease. Whether shooting photos or Full HD video¹, it's now easier than ever to elevate your images with the refinement and creative freedom of interchangeable-lens photography.

Images of Incredible Quality

The Alpha a58 features a 20.1MP Exmor HD APS sensor for lavishly detailed photos that make for gorgeous enlargements—not to mention Full HD video of incredible richness and clarity. Thanks to the large APS-C size sensor and premium Sony Exmor APS HD CMOS technology, the camera achieves high resolution with no penalty in low-light sensitivity or sensor noise. And with continuous shooting of up to 5fps, you'll never miss a moment.

Sony Camera

Ultimate Speed and Precision

Unlike other DSLRs, the a58 captures up to 5fps at full 20.1MP resolution with continuous autofocus thanks to the power of Sony's award-winning Translucent Mirror Technology. This groundbreaking technology directs light to both the image sensor and Phase Detection AF sensor simultaneously for enhanced autofocus performance, plus blazing speed and precision.

Sony Camera

Fantastic Full HD Video

Record stunning, high-quality movies at Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution in either 60i or 24p frames per second (records in 29-minute segments). Choose the AVCHD™ codec for exquisite Blu-ray Disc™ picture quality, or record in the PC-friendly MP4 format which lets you compress files for easy upload to sites like Facebook® and YouTube™.

Sony Camera

Lock-On AF for Enhanced Focusing

When shooting quick-moving subjects — think kids playing soccer or a seagull in flight — it can sometimes be difficult to maintain a crisp focus. Using Sony's Translucent Mirror Technology and advanced Face/Object Detection, Lock-on AF continuously adjusts the target frame size based on various subject characteristics and dramatically increases the in-focus rate. Even if your subject's face cannot be detected, the Lock-on AF ensures smooth, stable focusing using the optimal AF point — without having to search.

Sony Camera

High ISO Sensitivity, Low Noise

With a new Exmor sensor that features the same adaptive noise reduction technology found in Sony's flagship Alpha a99 camera, the a58 offers a wide range of sensitivity, from ISO 100 all the way to ISO 16000. Your photos and video will shine with noticeable crispness, clarity and reduced graininess — even in challenging shooting conditions.

Sony Camera

The Perfect Composition

Give your photos a professional look with the help of Auto Object Framing. Featuring advancements like exceptional two-person portrait capability along with Face Detection and Tracking Focus technology, Auto Object Framing turns ordinary photos into beautifully balanced compositions by automatically recognizing the scene then cropping accordingly. It's an effortless way to achieve perfectly framed photos every time.
