Sony Alpha A65 review

 

The Sony Alpha A65 is a quick shooting DSLR camera that's also geared up for video

Tilting LCD ; Relatively lightweight ; Excellent video capture

Pricey

Sony Alpha A65

 

The Sony Alpha A65 is the latest SLT (Single Lens Translucent) model to hit the shelves, following in the footsteps of the higher-spec, pricier A77. Alongside the A77, the A65 is likely to put the SLT format on the map. This camera does things that...

Many of the A77’s features for less cash, decent image quality from ISO 100-1600, super-fast 10fps burst mode, OLED viewfinder is the best currently available

High ISO image quality won’t match up to similar-priced DSLR cameras, the electronic viewfinder won’t suit all and suffers from lag compared to an optical equivalent

Alongside the A77, the A65 is likely to put the SLT format on the map. This camera does things that DSLRs just cannot do: a 10fps burst mode with continuous autofocus and a live preview movie mode with the same super-fast autofocus is without rival at...

First Look: Sony Alpha SLT-A65

 

Of the two new Alpha cameras recently announced by Sony it was the A65 that interested us the most. While it isn't the magnesium-alloy bodied flagship A77, it boasts all the same features that we think will make a major difference to your photography...

Feature set way above its price, Sony has a go at innovating

OLED finder isn't for everyone

Sony Alpha a65 review

 

High-end features in an SLT for a lower-end price

Class-leading Full HD movie mode Responsive full-time phase detection AF system ; Built-in GPS ; Built-in Image Stabilization system (SteadyShot INSIDE) ; Highly impressive OLED EVF

Noise isn't as well controlled compared to rivals ; Inclusion of only one control dial hampers manual shooting ; Slight delay in registering button presses can be frustrating ; Loss of live view feed when shooting in high-speed modes ; Two-way LCD...

Released alongside Sony's flagship SLT camera – the Alpha 77 – the Alpha 65 may be the 'little brother' to this formidable camera, but it's certainly no less impressive in its own right.

Sony Alpha 65 review

 

The Alpha 65 has the feel of the less expensive Alpha 55, but comes equipped with the excellent 24.3-million-pixel sensor found in the Alpha 77.To get the most out of the sensor, opting for the 16-50mm f/2.8 lens over the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 kit optic is...

Sony Alpha 65 review

 

We review the Sony Alpha 65 (A65) to see how it measure up to the rest of Sony's translucent-mirror DSLRs

The Sony Alpha 65 features the same sensor that is used in the A77 and also the NEX-7. The big difference is that the A65 is far cheaper with both other models costing over £1,000. While the number of megapixels needs to be balanced with other aspects...

Sony Alpha A65 review

 

Sharing much of the technology found in the excellent Alpha 77, the Alpha 65 looks like it could be a real bargain. Does it do enough to standout on its own?

Ultra fast performance, class-topping specification and performance. Easy to use

EVF still not perfect and relatively poor battery life

Built in GPS; Extremely fast performance; Stunning OLED EVF (has to be seen to be believed); Excellent image quality; Excellent colour; Info-lithium battery lets you know exactly how much battery life is left; Continuous focus during videos; Electronic...

Can not upgrade to a battery grip with the A65
