This camera is designed to freeze the action, its three cross sensors in the 15 points AF system enable more accurate and reliable tracking of moving subjects than vertical and horizontal sensors can provide, even in dim lighting. You can choose any of our four AF area modes (Wide, Zone, Spot or Local) depending on your needs.
Auto Object Framing
α58 makes it easy to create beautifully balanced images whether shooting a person, an object or both. Simply photograph your subject and the Auto Object Framing feature automatically saves a trimmed image (in addition to your original image) to help you compose your shots like a professional.
Note: Optimal results may not be possible in certain shooting conditions.
Quick AF Full HD Movie
Create memorable movies with amazing clarity at Full HD resolution, the continuous phase-detection AF utilises the same speed and accurate focusing for both stills and movies. You can record at 60i (50i)* for super smooth playback or 24p (25p)* for a cinematic look. Or use P/A/S/M (Program, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority and Manual) modes to expand your moviemaking creativity.
