The Sony Alpha SLT-A65 Digital SLR Camera Kit with 18-55mm and 18-135mm Lenses from B&H combines this feature-heavy APS-C format DSLR with two versatile zoom lenses to cover almost all shooting situations from wide-angle to full telephoto.
The Alpha SLT-A65 DSLR provides a 24.3MP Exmor APS-C HD CMOS sensor and the BIONZ image processor and the result is high-resolution still photography and full HD 1080p video capture at 24 and 60 fps with manual exposure control. Translucent Mirror Technology and Phase Detection AF provide accurate and fast focus and 10 fps continuous shooting. An 2,359k-dot OLED Electronic Viewfinder and a 3.0" 921k-dot tilt-swivel LCD screen both offer playback and live view composition. SteadyShot INSIDE Stabilization is an in-camera system for reducing the blur created by camera shake and the A65 features a very fast shutter lag. Two memory card slots provide storage options and both a built-in flash and hot shoe mount are supported. Other features include integrated GPS, Object Tracking AF, Auto HDR and Multi-Frame Noise Reduction.
The A65 provides native compatibility with all A-mount lenses and is here bundled with the Sony 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 SAM II lens and the Sony 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 lens. The 18-55mm is a compact zoom with the 35mm focal length equivalence of 27-82.5mm and a minimum focus distance of 9.8". The Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM) provides fast, smooth and quiet autofocus which is particularly important when shooting video. Two aspherical and one Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass element minimize aberrations. The 18-135mm with a 35mm focal length equivalence of 27-202.5mm offers more powerful telephoto reach. The SAM system provides fast and quiet AF and Direct Manual Focus (DMF) lets you immediately shoot with precise manual focus even when in AF mode. Two aspherical elements and a single ED glass element minimize aberrations and help to deliver sharp, clear photos throughout the zoom range.
