Sony introduced the Alpha A68 last month, but that announcement was geared toward the UK market. Today, however, the electronics company announced that its new DSLR-esque camera will be coming to the US next April, with pre-orders expected to open in March. The Alpha A68 features a 24.2-megapixel APS-C Exmor CMOS sensor, a Bionz X image processor and an ISO range of 100-25,600. To help you frame your subject or view pictures, meanwhile, you get a hybrid OLED electronic viewfinder and a 2.7-inch tilting LCD.

As we noted in November, the A68's main feature is its translucent mirror, which Sony is calling D4 Focus and consists of a 79-point phase-detection AF that works continuously at up to 8fps. Unlike Sony's latest cameras, such as the A7S II or A7R II, the Alpha A68 doesn't shoot 4K, but you do have the option of 1080p at 24, 25 and 30fps. It'll be available for $600 body-only or $700 with an 18-55mm kit lens.
