The Sony Alpha 65 single lens translucent camera features the same class-leading 24.3-million-pixel sensor as the Alpha 77, yet costs £350 less. We find out how it performs
Sony uses its trusted 1,200-zone metering system in its SLT cameras and the Alpha 65 is no exception. In the majority of situations, the evaluative system meters very accurately. For critical metering, I find spot somewhat limiting because it works in line with the AF points in the central part of the frame. For subjects at the edge of the frame, I find dialling in exposure compensation a quicker and better method than spot metering to ensure an accurate exposure.
