Sony Alpha SLT-A58M DSLR 18-135 mm Black - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

Sony SLT-A58M SLR with SAL 18-135mm Kit Lens can be a good successor to the A57. The camera packs in 20.1MP image sensor, an electronic viewfinder, and a multi-purpose hotshoe. The battery life is quite good, even though the device has some drawbacks like slow burst rate, plasticized lens mount, and not a very bright LCD screen. You can shoot full HD videos at 50 or 25fps. The ISO sensitivity range begins from 100ISO to 16000ISO. The camera gives away auto object framing and lock-on AF. Continuous shoot can be done at 8fps but at low resolution. For better resolution shoot, you would have to turn to rate 5fps. A58 can be the 'next' camera to compete with Canon and Nikon DSLRs, given the impressive specifications sheet.

Design and Build Quality

Sony SLT-A58M SLR with SAL 18-135mm Kit Lens poses a lot of similarities to the A57. The digital zoom function is placed at the top of the camera at the back of the shutter button ring while the exposure compensation button bends to the back. While in playback mode, the same control also magnifies and the AEL button de-magnifies. There is mode dial to the left hot shoe to provide Picture Effects: Pop Color, Soft Focus, Posterization (Color or B&W), Retro Photo, Soft High-key, Partial Color (Red, Blue, Green, or Yellow), Soft Focus, Toy Camera, High Contrast Monochrome, Soft Focus, Rich-tone Monochrome, and Miniature. The camera has 2.7-inch 460k-dot LCD monitor that can be tilted 135 degree up and 55 degrees down. There is also a metal hot shoe while the lens mount is made of plastic.

At the front, you have a molded grip that provides for firm grip. At the back, there is a textured grip for your thumb to rest but it is made of plastic. Also, we have video, menu, exposure, AEL, FM, playback, help buttons with a four way controller and an AF button at the middle. Display, drive, creative effects, and white balance can be accessed via a four-way controller. Beneath the camera, there is a tripod socket and a battery room. The memory card can be reached at from the side. The overall build is admirable.

Focus and Face Detection

Sony SLT-A58M SLR with SAL 18-135mm Kit Lens uses a 15-point phase detection AutoFocus sensor. This can be used fully while capturing movies. You see three cross-type points at the center of array that are responsive to your vertical and horizontal orientations. There is no AF light assist here but a popup flash. There is a new system for tracking called lock-on AF function, which merges the info gained from image sensor and phase-detection AF pixels, and tracks the subject when it moves within the AF points whereas, outside movements are tracked by the AF sensor. After the subject has gotten into the boundary of points, the camera is then able to track the subject effectively. Focusing modes are Autofocus, AF Tracking, Face Detection, Manual, Spot, Multi, and Centre. Manual focusing via EVF is an easy job.

Lens and Image Stabilization

Sony SLT-A58M SLR with SAL 18-135mm Kit Lens features 3.06x optical zoom lens with focal length ranging from 18mm to 55mm (27-83mm equivalent). As hinted in the cons, the lens kit at wide-angle end projects strong barrel distortion, which can be corrected within the camera via lens compensation. You can also correct distortion, vignetting and chromatic aberration. The dynamic range of the camera is appreciable. The exposure along with it is too dependable. With dynamic range optimization/DRO, you can expand the dynamic range. The HDR shooting lets you merge a number of shots taken at different exposure levels to bring out the best quality. After having corrected the chromatic aberration, still some of the purple fringing are visible. The lens kit is resilient to flare and the corners are detailed. The camera uses SteadyShot INSIDE, an optical image stabilizer.

Screen and Menus

Sony SLT-A58M SLR with SAL 18-135mm Kit Lens packs in 2.7 inches wide LCD. The screen resolution is not very high- mere 460k dots, although the LCD monitor is decent in itself and can be used in sunny weather. The menu is neat, tidy, and fairly laid out. The screen can tilted 135 degrees upwards and downwards by 55 degrees. So, it is good for above or below the waist shots.

Battery

Sony SLT-A58M SLR with SAL 18-135mm Kit Lens, as per CIPA testing standards can give you 690-700 shots on a single charge. The camera derives its power from InfoLithium NP-FM500H 7.2v 1600mAh rechargeable battery pack. Also, a battery charger gets shipped along with the camera. When you are using LCD as your viewfinder, you can get 10 more shots.

Video Mode

Sony SLT-A58M SLR with SAL 18-135mm Kit Lens captures videos at Full HD. You can avail continuous AF while recording a video. You can also use the wind noise filter. Sound comes in via mic socket in stereo format. The optical zoom can be used. The frame size for recording videos can be chosen from among 1920x1080 /Full HD or 640x480/VGA. The frame rates that can be used are 50 and 25fps. Videos can be compressed in AVCHD or MP4 formats. Under this mode, the ISO levels can be set up to 3200ISO. The sad part is that there is no provision for 60fps video capturing. Given the lens kit, the quality of video is fine and its performance is smooth. The happy part is that you can use PSAM (Program, Aperture, Shutter, and Manual) mode while recording. Also the continuous phase-detection AF in video mode works better than in other contemporary cameras.

Sensors

Sony SLT-A58M SLR with SAL 18-135mm Kit Lens features Exmor CMOS APS-C 20.1MP sensor. The ISO sensitivity ranges from 100 – 16000 ISO levels. Aspect ratios are 3:2, 16:9, which define the crop standards. The width of the pixels is 5456 and height is 3632. Up to ISO 800, you notice noise. At 1600ISO, there is minor loss in detail yet the noise is low. At 3200ISO, both noise and loss in detail increases. At 6400ISO, the results can still be utilized. Beyond this level, results are of no use.

·         At wide-angle end, you can encounter strong barrel distortion

·         The lens mount is made up of plastic

·         No optical viewfinder but an electronic one, which could be very disappointing for some

·         Only a year warranted.

·         At higher ISO levels, you find noise

Great DSLT for starters!
by Rishabh Jangid on 2014-08-30

Good for beginners, I have been using this baby for almost 2 months now, not from Flipkart though. Here are some thoughts:
