        Product information
        Top features: 

        - Shoot moving objects accurately with fast 79-point 4D Focus autofocus 

        - Capture action shots like a pro using continuous shooting 

        - Get detailed shots with less noise using a 24.2-megapixel sensor 

        - Frame shots beautifully with a 100% frame coverage viewfinder 

        - Take shots minus visible camera shake thanks to in-body stabilisation 

        Shoot moving objects accurately

        A wide and fast autofocus system helps you to capture moving objects more accurately. With a 79-point 4D Focus autofocus system, each of these points track your subject for a steadier shot. Continuous autofocus even carries on when shooting in Full HD to eliminate handheld camera shake for a more professional look to your movies.

        Capture action shots like a pro

        The tracking skills of the Sony ILCA68K extend to its 8-frames-per-second continuous shooting function. It offers high performance tracking of moving subjects such as cyclists to enable continuous autofocussing, even when your subject is moving quickly.

        Continuous shooting helps you to capture a subject's full range of motion in snapshots, making the camera ideal for sports and wildlife photography.

        Detailed shots with less noise

        A large 24.2 megapixel Exmor CMOS sensor boosts the sensitivity of the camera to reduce noise when taking shots.

        A BIONZ image processing engine includes detailed image reproduction technology to produce more realistic pictures. Noise reduction divides the image into sections such as edges, textures and evenly coloured areas such as the sky to reduce unwanted noise in each area.

        Frame shots beautifully

        Increase the chances of taking a better shot with an electronic viewfinder that helps you to preview shots as you take them. Compare different effects at a glance, fine-tune your shots and play around with defocussing effects before you take a photo.

        Take shots minus visible camera shake

        In-body stabilisation helps stabilise the viewfinder when taking shots, so even if your hand is less than steady, the Sony ILCA68K does its best to ensure your shots suffer from less handheld camera shake.
