Sony announces Alpha 58, a mid-level DSLT camera

Sony has announced a new DSLR camera for their Alpha lineup, the Sony Alpha SLT-A58. It’s a mid-range SLT (Single Lens Translucent) camera with a newly-developed 20MP sensor that is supposed to replace the A57 and the A38.

The new camera will incorporate a redesigned 20 megapixel sensor along with a new Bionz image processor to help the camera achieve not just better image quality, but also help it shoot a lot faster, from 100 ISO to 16000 ISO. The A58 expands on the feature package of the A57, but also replacing the SLD of the previous model in favor of a SVGA OLED Viewfinder. The Alpha58 also comes with a 15 point AF system, which features “Lock-on Autofocus with speedier, more accurate subject tracking.” 

The Alpha58 also updates the Auto Portrait Framing of the older cameras to be just Auto Object Framing that will help users to frame their photographs better. Club that with the Picture Effects option on the mode dial, which includes 15 artistic effects that can be applied to the image in-camera to yield what Sony claims to be “professional quality images.”

As of now, Sony has only announced the camera, with no word on pricing or availability.
