Sony Alpha SLT-A65

3 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Sony has added another camera to its single-lens translucent (SLT) mirror technology cameras – the Alpha A65. On first glance it is quite reminiscent of the older Sony A55. The A65 incorporates an electronic viewfinder ( EVF ) in place of the optical viewfinder and the mirror in front of its sensor...

DP Review
9 July 2012
  • Summary: The Sony SLT-A65 is an exceptionally well specified camera for its class. The 24 MP CMOS sensor, the OLED EVF and the 10 fps continuous mode are real stand-out features in the mid-level bracket of the market.
  • Pros: Excellent 2.4 million-dot OLED EVF, Versatile full-time live view system, Very high-resolution 24MP CMOS APS-Csensor, Strong feature set including Auto HDR and Sweep Panorama, Class-leading video resolution, Intuitive and well thought-out ergonomics, Fast and responsive operation, Fastest continu...
  • Cons: In-camera JPEGs don't show off the 24MP sensor to its best extent, Comparatively strong noise reduction at medium and high ISO settings, Very noisy raw files at high ISO settings, Little control over high ISO noise reduction in JPEG mode ('auto' or 'weak'), Limited control in 10 fps continuous sh...

Sony Alpha 65 (SLT-A65VK)

PC Magazine
3 July 2012
  • Conclusion: The 24-megapixel Sony Alpha 65 is capable of shooting at a blazing fast 9 frames per second, but is held back by a kit lens that simply can't match the quality of the high-resolution image sensor.
  • Pros: Shoots at 9 frames per second. High resolution. Fast autofocus. Excellent OLED EVF. Built-in GPS.
  • Cons: No optical finder. Low-quality kit lens. Performance suffers with slower memory cards.

  • Conclusion: The Alpha 65 hits the sweet spot of advanced technology and a reasonable price for serious photography enthusiasts. It has a lot of features, yet it’s still easy to use and produces great results.
  • Pros: High resolution, detailed images. Fast continuous shooting rate. Full-time AF for live view/video.
  • Cons: Lacks the build quality of the Sony A77.

Sony Alpha A65 Review

What Digital Camera
20 December 2011
  • Summary: With an asking price of £789 with an 18-55mm kit lens, it’s quite a bit more affordable than the A77 with a similar, but not identical headline specification. There’s no doubt that the A77 has more to offer the enthusiast photographer, but those looking for a well-spec’d camera at a reasonable price...
  • Pros: Ultra fast performance, class-topping specification and performance. Easy to use.
  • Cons: EVF still not perfect and relatively poor battery life.

Sony Alpha 65 review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • Summary: The Alpha 65 has the feel of the less expensive Alpha 55, but comes equipped with the excellent 24.3-million-pixel sensor found in the Alpha 77. To get the most out of the sensor, opting for the 16-50mm f/2.8 lens over the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 kit optic is advisable.

  • Excerpt: Obviously this arrangement makes it impossible to have an optical viewfinder so all the SLT-series Sony D-SLRs have an electronic viewfinder (EVF) which, in general terms, hasn’t always been satisfactory in terms of both lag and a poor dynamic range.

Sony Alpha A65

Pocket Lint
19 January 2012
  • Conclusion: Alongside the A77, the A65 is likely to put the SLT format on the map. This camera does things that DSLRs just cannot do: a 10fps burst mode with continuous autofocus and a live preview movie mode with the same super-fast autofocus is without rival at this price point.
  • Pros: Many of the A77’s features for less cash, decent image quality from ISO 100-1600, super-fast 10fps burst mode, OLED viewfinder is the best currently available
  • Cons: High ISO image quality won’t match up to similar-priced DSLR cameras, the electronic viewfinder won’t suit all and suffers from lag compared to an optical equivalent
