STL-A58K  

Technology
Images of incredible quality
Get incredible detail and gorgeous enlargements. Thanks to the 20.1 megapixel APS-C sensor size and Sony Exmor® APS HD CMOS technology, the camera achieves high resolution even in low light.
Ultimate speed and precision
Some DSLRs can shoot while others can focus; the SLT-A58K with Translucent Mirror Technology can do both. Sony's innovative technology allows direct light to both the image sensor and the Phase Detection AF sensor simultaneously so you can shoot images and video with speed and precision.
Fantastic Full HD video
Record stunning high quality Full HD video in either 60i or 24p frames per second. Records in your choice of 60i/24p Blu-Ray quality AVCHD™ format1, or in PC-friendly 1080/30p MP4 format.2
Lock-on AF for even easier focusing of moving subjects
Using the 15-point Auto Focus sensor and Sony’s subject recognition technologies, Object Tracking Auto Focus can maintain accurate focus on your moving subject whether you're capturing stills or shooting HD video.
High ISO sensitivity, low noise
With a new Exmor sensor that features the same adaptive noise reduction technology from Sony’s flagship SLT-A99V, the SLT-A58 easily offers a wide range of sensitivity from ISO 100 to ISO 16000.
OLED Viewfinder
The Tru-finder™ Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) is super bright and offers 1x magnification, so you can get the clearest, sharpest shot.

Product description and full feature list
Explore the full range of features and options below.
 

The Perfect Composition
Now it’s easy to create beautiful images whether shooting people, close-ups or action. Simply photograph your subject and Auto Object Framing saves a trimmed image (in addition to original) that’s more professionally composed.

SteadyShot INSIDE™
image stabilization

Image stabilization reduces blur by compensating for camera shake. SteadyShot INSIDE™ image stabilization is built into the camera body itself. You'll reduce blur with every A-mount lens because it provides compensation equivalent to approximately 2 to 4.5 additional steps in shutter speed, allowing for more hand held opportunities in low light or longer focal lengths.

Advanced 15-point AF system
with 3 Cross-sensors

To maximize the value of Translucent Mirror Technology, Sony incorporates Phase Detection AF of great sophistication. Three cross-type sensors maximize focus precision.

Large 2.7” Tilt-able,
460K dot LCD screen

Tilt it up or down to frame high- and low-angle shots that would otherwise be hit-or-miss. Fold it flush to the camera with the LCD exposed for shooting or protected for travel.

Auto HDR built into camera
Captures more scene dynamic range than a single exposure can handle—and more range than photo film. Combines the best highlight detail from one shot, the best mid-tones from a second and the best shadow detail from a third for one incredible shot. Captures in a split second. (Recommended for still subjects.)

Picture Effects
Ordinary scenes become extraordinary photos and movies with Picture Effects. Choose from 11 modes and 15 effects that significantly increase visual impact by adjusting camera parameters and applying advanced processing techniques.

Multi-frame NR
Experience incredible low-light shooting without a flash. The camera captures six images in a fraction of a second. Combining the data from all six, it creates a single image with a reduction in noise equivalent to two additional steps of ISO sensitivity. Sensitivity selectable up to ISO 25600. (Recommended for still subjects.)

Hand-held Twilight
Get cleaner and sharper nighttime pictures—beyond the capability of traditional cameras—without using flash or a tripod. The camera captures six images in a fraction of a second. Combining the data with separate algorithms for still and moving parts of the picture reduces blur, minimizes noise and enables extraordinary detail.

Sweep Panorama™ Mode
Capture expansive landscapes automatically. Press the shutter, sweep vertically or horizontally. The camera does the rest, continuously shooting images and stitching them together for an astounding panoramic image.

The A58's EVF looks like you are looking through a tunnel when comparing it next to the A57.

Style Name: w/ 18-55mmConfiguration: Base
I will start by apologizing for the long review, but I felt it necessary to put some solid information out there concerning the A58 and how it compares to the A57...from an owners perspective. Like you, I read everything possible on the A58 prior to purchase. Unfortunately, this camera has had a lukewarm response from professional reviewers and has flown under the radar. There's good reason for that. If you are a reviewer who has the camera in your possession for a few days or a week, you will likely see the obvious. Unfortunately, many people read these reviews and then repeat the same misinformation on forums. I am an experienced photographer who actually owns both the A58 and the A57, so I can give you a balanced opinion. More importantly, I am not a fanboy of Sony (or any other camera manufacturer), nor am I a fanboy of the A58 or A57. With that said, here are my observations.

***Dispelling Myths***

First, lets dispel some myths. For starters, the plastic mount is not an issue and should not be a concern for most buyers. It is a tough plastic that is solidly built and shows no signs of weakness. After mounting the lens over and over again, I can't see any signs of wear. If you somehow manage to break the mount, then it is likely that you would have done so with a metal mount. Just use common sense, if your lens weighs 10 pounds, then it is probably wise to support its weight independently from the camera body (enough said). Secondly, the build quality is slightly different than the A57, but every bit as good. If anything, the grip material feels slightly tackier and better. The plastic used on both cameras is of similar quality, but of slightly different texture. They both look and feel good.

Style Name: w/ 18-55mmConfiguration: Base
I took possession of my a58 from a local merchant last week and I've been delighted with the camera. The sensor is very good. Maybe two thirds to a full stop better than the a57 at ISO 3200. The EVF is now OLED so it's clearer, brighter and more detailed than the LCD finder in the a57 it replaces. In my week of use I've found the finder to be really good and the performance of the sensor to be equally good. I am not a beginner and also own Sony's full frame a99 and their previous full frame camera, the a850. I've owned the a77 camera as well. This camera is smaller, lighter, has longer battery life than any of the other Sony SLT models I own. The video is really good. I wish the camera had the ability to hook up headphones and monitor the sound but it doesn't. Only the a99 does that.

So, why did I buy this one if I have better spec'd cameras in the studio? Well, I use the full frame cameras in my advertising photography business and I want a camera that's smaller, lighter but doesn't give up much image performance. The a58 fills that bill.

With the right assortment of lenses it comes close to being my idea of the ultimate travel camera. If people bought with their brains rather than being led by advertising I'd consider this camera to be a first rate Canon Rebel killer. It's a much better imaging machine.

Style Name: w/ 18-55mmConfiguration: Base Verified Purchase
**Updated after One Year of use:

I am a hobbyist (at best) photographer. I got into the DSLR world when I purchased a used Sony A230 in April of 2012. I purchased this A58 in April of 2013.

The A58 works as expected with all of my Minolta A-mount lenses, a 28-85 f3.5-4.5, a 50mm f1.7, a 70-210 F4, a 75-300 f4.5-5.6, and a 28-135 f4-4.5.

Update written after One year of use, about 9,000 shots

My impressions are:

Indoor/High ISO performance is good. Unfortunately, I have never used another brand, so I have no idea how the High ISO performance would stand up to Cannon/Nikon, etc.

Macro performance is amazing.

Wide angle performance is excellent.

Portraits look excellent (I disabled the automatic object framing, as I prefer to crop my own photos)

I have shot three videos, which look great, but I do not take that many videos.

Still playing with the Panorama function. I have only tried it once with mediocre results, possibly due to intense low angle sunlight in my shot.

The Pros:
- Battery life seems excellent. I have taken 700 shots in a 1.5 week period, starting with a full charge, and the indicator suggested 33% of my charge was remaining. This leads me to believe the battery could regularly go longer than the 600 shots specified.
- Camera feels sold and well built.
- The "Live View" capability is awesome, and a huge advantage, especially when handing your camera to someone unfamiliar with DSLR's, and asking them to take a photo.
- The EVF is good, and clicks right on as soon as you put your eye to the eyepiece.
- In my opinion, image quality is excellent.
- Auto Focus is excellent.
- Reasonably priced.

Style Name: w/ 18-55mmConfiguration: Base
The A58 gets some negative press based on how it compares to the A57. Sony should have probably named it the A48 or something like that. However, this is a great camera in its own right. I owned the A57 and like the A58 better for the following reasons:

1. The OLED viewfinder is MUCH better than the viewfinder on the A57. I honestly did not think the difference would be a big deal. But, after using it, my opinion is different.

2. The JPEG image quality is the best I have seen on an Alpha camera to date. Sony finally tweaked the JPEG engine for better results.

3. The quiet shutter sound of the A58 is great. This is especially useful in a quiet setting.

Highly recommended camera...
