Alpha SLT-A65

Rating: no rating

Lowest Price: £15.44

Sony extends the appeal of its Translucent Mirror camera range with two exciting, new A-mount models appealing to advanced amateurs and serious photo enthusiasts.



The latest refinements in Translucent Mirror Technology from Sony make the SLT-A77 (α77) and SLT-A65 (α65) the quickest, most responsive interchangeable lens cameras in their class. Revised ergonomics on both cameras include a comfortably contoured new grip design and tactile new button layout for ‘eyes off’ operation while viewing via the high-resolution XGA OLED Tru-Finder.



A long-awaited successor to the acclaimed α700 DSLR, the α77 adds further refinements in performance and ruggedized construction to handle gruelling photo assignments with ease.
