Images of incredible quality.

The Alpha a58 features a 20.1-megapixel 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 5 fps, you'll never miss a moment.


Ultimate speed and precision.

Unlike other DSLRs, the a58 captures up to 5 fps at full 20.1-megapixel 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.


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™.


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.


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.


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
