Go on. Experience the revolution today.
Translucent Mirror Technology
24.3-megapixel* Exmor™ APS HD CMOS sensor

Shoot exceptionally rich images
Sony's new proprietary Exmor™ APS HD CMOS sensor (APS-C size), lets you capture stunning images brimming with exceptionally rich detail at an astounding 24.3-megapixel* resolution. Complementing this ultra-high resolution is an extra large sensor size that raises sensitivity in low-light conditions and strengthens background defocusing effects. Giving you nothing but picture-perfect quality every time.
World's First* XGA OLED Viewfinder

Get a clearer perspective
See the world through the eyes of a65's XGA OLED Tru-Finder. A world's first*, it displays every scene with incredible contrast, clarity and colour accuracy. Easy on your eyes, it makes viewing under any type of lighting almost effortless – automatically adjusting to dark or bright sunlight scenes.
Among interchangeable-lens camera with APS-C size sensors as of August 2011.

XGA OLED Tru-Finder
10 fps Continuous Shooting With Quick AF
Capture more moments per second
Shoot up to 10 images at full 24.3-megapixel* resolution all in a single second. Even at maximum 10fps continuous shooting speed, your subjects will stay sharply focused thanks to the supreme speed and precision of accelerated full-time continuous phase-detection autofocusing and Sony's Translucent Mirror Technology. Now you can capture every fleeting moment, in all types of situations effortlessly, with professional-looking results.
With Translucent Mirror Technology

In Sony's SLT cameras, the Translucent mirror stays in place, allowing light to reach both the image sensor and phase-detection AF sensor simultaneously. Without the need for the mirror to flip back into position before the next shot, the SLT-A65 is able to achieve ultra-fast response of up to 10 fps with full-time, high-speed AF detection. Moving subjects are always kept in focus.
With regular DSLR Technology

In regular DSLR cameras, the mirror flips upward and downward for image capture, causing blackout time with every shot you take.
Effective pixels (approx.)
Notes: Continuous shooting speed may be depending on shooting conditions. In Continuous Priority AE Mode, the aperture is fixed at F3.5 or the maximum aperture of the lens, whichever is smaller. Continuous shooting speed (fps) lowers when high ISO NR function is On.

Enhanced Picture Effect

Create your own works of art
Explore endless creative possibilities with 11 picture effect modes (up to 15 effects) including 4 new ones: HDR Painting, Rich-tone Monochrome, Soft Focus and Miniature. Simply use these innovative effects to transform your still images and movies into stunning works of art by adjusting camera parameters and applying advanced image processing techniques like masking and compositing.

HD Movie with Continuous AF

Record sharper, crisper movies
Unlike most interchangeable lens cameras which employ standard contrast-detection autofocusing when shooting movies, a65 delivers superior speed and precision of full-time continuous phase-detection autofocusing during HD movie shooting – so you get sharper, clearer footages every time. You can even choose to shoot your videos in super smooth 60p (50p)* or cinematic 24p (25)* in Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution. And also enjoy greater creative control with shutter priority, aperture priority, manual mode and more – for a superb movie experience unlike any other.
