Digital Camera Review – Sony Alpha 65 (SLT-A65VK)

A speed of 9 frames per second, high resolution screen and results and a fast and quick autofocus. These are just some of the highlights of the Sony Alpha 65, a digital camera that does a great job of separating itself from the traditional SLR cameras we see all around. But the thing about the Alpha 65 is very similar to any other D-SLR that is, until you do not take it up to your eye.

The electronic viewfinder (EVF) is bright, crisp and an OLED which replaces the traditional optical finder that we usually see. Many people hate this new concept saying it is too quick and shoots continuously. The A65 offers users the same feel as a SLR and that was highly appreciated by many.

Sony Alpha 65

This is one hell of a camera. Its 24 megapixels and this specification makes it very much possible to print large sized pictures. The camera allows you to shoot more than 12 pictures with 9 frames per second, all with its continuous autofocus.

The OLED EVF is larger and a lot brighter than we usually see. The video quality is outstanding and the autofocus feature does a great job when it comes to recording. It shoots a lot faster than other D-SLRs in this price range and this came out as a favorable spec.

The problem lies in the kit set that is provided with the camera. The main weakness lies with the kits that are provided as we thought they were too weak for the camera itself. It’s not that Sony doesn’t have the capability of offering better lenses but in order to avail these you will need to spend a considerable amount of money.

On top of that, the performance started suffering dues to slow memory cards so make sure you prevent yourself from making this mistake.
