Conns Cameras is a family-run business established by Phil Conn in 1968. Bob and Mike Conn together with an excellent team of knowledgeable and helpful staff can guide you through the maze of new technology.
We sell only certified European stock, not grey imports. As well as dealing directly with each brand we stock, or their European distributor, we are a certified professional / premier dealer for Canon, Fuji, Leica, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic and Sony. We also deal directly with the best authorised repair centres for each brand.
Plus we offer unrivalled extra back-up and support services over and above the standard manufacturer's warranty you will receive from other retailers.
Orders are generally dealt with as soon as they are received.
Parcels are picked up from us in the early afternoon, and orders before 2pm will normally be shipped for delivery within Ireland the next working day (delivery to Britain is normally two working days). Please call us on 01-6777179 if you need an item urgently to confirm we can get it packed before the respective courier picks-up.
Items ordered directly from the website or by phone are covered by a seven day cooling off period (under EU Distance Selling regulations) within which you may cancel the item and receive a full refund. If the item has already been dispatched then you are under obligation to return it at your own liability for the cancellation to stand, and you refund will be less our shipping costs. Orders made in person are not covered by any such statutory cooling off period.
Capture more unforgettable moments for posterity. With the α68 the world’ s highest number of phase-detection AF points (79) covering a wide AF area will catch the moment to last for a life time. The Exmor CMOS sensor™ and BIONZ X™ image processing engine deliver the imaging impact that you aim for. Dials, controls and displays make shooting more intuitive and immediate to optimise operability.
The world's highest number of phase-detection AF points (79) covering a wide AF area for ultimate accuracy and tracking performance.
The Exmor CMOS sensor and BIONZ X image processing engine achieve high image quality and wide sensitivity range.
The top display panel and rear control wheel make functions quick and easy to access and use.
Get superior autofocus reliability with 79 high-density AF points, including 15 cross-type points. Translucent Mirror Technology enables precise phase-detection AF even with continuous shooting and movie modes.
Sony’s unique design replaces a DSLR moving mirror with a fixed translucent mirror, which enables ultra-fast shooting with continuous use of accurate phase detection AF.
The large Exmor CMOS image sensor with approximately 24.2 MP provides for high image resolution, delicate tonal gradation and expressive bokeh. And the BIONZ X featuring advanced image reproducing technologies and processes vast data from the sensor at high speed for more realistic images. The duo is a perfect match for shooting in the wide ISO range of 100-25600 and producing beautifully sharp, clear results.
For high image quality and minimal noise, you can record movies in the high-bit-rate XAVC S format, which enables Full HD image recording at 50Mbps (30p/25p,24.2p).
