Shoot moving objects accurately

A wide and fast autofocus system helps you to capture moving objects more accurately. With a 79-point 4D Focus autofocus system, each of these points track your subject for a steadier shot. Continuous autofocus even carries on when shooting in Full HD to eliminate handheld camera shake for a more professional look to your movies.

Capture action shots like a pro

The tracking skills of the Sony ILCA68K extend to its 8-frames-per-second continuous shooting function. It offers high performance tracking of moving subjects such as cyclists to enable continuous autofocussing, even when your subject is moving quickly.

Continuous shooting helps you to capture a subject's full range of motion in snapshots, making the camera ideal for sports and wildlife photography.

Detailed shots with less noise

A large 24.2 megapixel Exmor CMOS sensor boosts the sensitivity of the camera to reduce noise when taking shots.

A BIONZ image processing engine includes detailed image reproduction technology to produce more realistic pictures. Noise reduction divides the image into sections such as edges, textures and evenly coloured areas such as the sky to reduce unwanted noise in each area.

Frame shots beautifully

Increase the chances of taking a better shot with an electronic viewfinder that helps you to preview shots as you take them. Compare different effects at a glance, fine-tune your shots and play around with defocussing effects before you take a photo.

Take shots minus visible camera shake

In-body stabilisation helps stabilise the viewfinder when taking shots, so even if your hand is less than steady, the Sony ILCA68K does its best to ensure your shots suffer from less handheld camera shake.

Delivering your online order

Get this delivered when it suits you

We’ll show you your current delivery options for this item in checkout. Subject to the time you order, and where you want delivery, these options will include:

  • FREE standard delivery in 5-10 working days
  • Next day delivery or any following day between 8am & 5pm (£5.00)
  • Delivery in a timeslot of your choice next day or any following day (£10.00)
Please note: if we’re out of stock of an item but getting more in, we indicate – on listings pages and the product page – how soon we can dispatch for delivery to you. In this case, please go ahead and order, and we’ll contact you later to confirm an exact delivery date.

Important update on our delivery service for small items

Our courier partners (DPD, Royal Mail and On the Dot) have all updated their delivery processes to take extra precautions due to Coronavirus (COVID-19). Please follow the below advice:

1. Customers can use the DPD app to nominate a ‘safe place’ for their delivery to be left if they do not want close contact.

For customers unable to use the DPD app, DPD is still able to offer a contact-free delivery, and will take a picture of the property and capture a proof of delivery name instead of capturing a customer signature.

2. Royal Mail is an unsigned service . Where Royal Mail needs to deliver a parcel, its teams will place the parcel at the customer’s door. Having knocked on the door, the delivery teams will step aside to a safe distance while the item is retrieved. If the delivery cannot take place, Royal Mail will take the parcel to the local depot for collection by the customer.  The parcel will be held for 18 days as per normal process.

3. For On the Dot, where a standard signature delivery is not possible, On the Dot will attempt to leave the parcel in a safe place and inform the customer of where the parcel has been placed.

To see the courier partner for your delivery, please check your dispatch confirmation email (which will also include your tracking reference).
