This Sony Alpha SLT-A58 DSLR Camera Kit with 18-55mm & 55-200mm Lenses and Flash
combines the 20.1MP APS-C A58 with a pair of zoom lenses and an external flash unit. This provides a comprehensive zoom range from a wide-angle to a telephoto perspective. Also, the HVL-F20M External Flash provides the ability to add light when needed and achieve some creative lighting effects.
The SLT-A58 features a 20.1MP Exmor APS-C Sensor with a BIONZ image processor. These work together to produce clear, detailed images with an ISO of up to 16,000. It also enables continuous shooting at up to 5 frames per second. Additionally, it allows for full HD 1920x1080 video recording at up to 60 frames per second.
Focusing is achieved through the use of Translucent Mirror Technology which directs light to the image sensor and autofocus system simultaneously. It allows for quick Live View and video focusing capabilities via the 15-point AF system with 3 cross-type sensors. You can monitor your images and video via the 1,440k-dot resolution SVGA OLED EVF or through the rear 2.7" 460.8k-dot resolution tilting LCD monitor.
The A58 uses Sony A-mount lenses, and this kit includes the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 and the 55-200mm f/4.0-5.6 zoom lenses. This provides a comprehensive zoom range from 18-200mm, or 27-300mm in a 35mm equivalent. They have both been optimized for APS-C sized-sensors and feature Smooth Autofocus Motors for fast accurate focusing. Also, the A58's SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization allows any A-mount lens can receive the benefits of stabilization.
Also included is the HVL-F20M External Flash which features a guide number of 65.6' at ISO 100 in the 50mm position. It also is able to tilt up to 75° for bounce applications and includes a built-in diffuser for wide-angle lenses. This enables more advanced flash techniques than those allowed by the pop-up flash.
