On the other hand the Canon EOS 1300D using 18 mp of resolution and however its sensor size is also smaller than Sony A-58.

Low pass filter- The low pass filter technology is not engineered at anywhere of the Sony A58 design, that gently maximizes the cameras capability to grasping the rich details of the desired subjects. But this low pass filter technology has been incorporated within the design of 1300D, so that camera may not achieve the same details as Sony A-58 does.

Also, utilizing the 9‐point AF system including one center cross‐type AF point and moreover, the AI Servo AF provide impressive autofocus performance with precise tracking results.

Let us tell you why Sony A58’s AF system is better compared to 1300D? The answer is due to implement of the brilliant SLT technology. There are different characters of this innovative technology including fast shooting, non- stop phase detection autofocus and continuous live image preview during still and full HD video (60i/24p) shooting. The A58 camera has a high-performance 15-point AF system that features new Lock-on Autofocus technology benefits the camera for faster and exact focusing of the target subjects, which will probably be missed by 1300D.

ISO- Sony A58 camera will not allow your focus to drift while shooting in the complicated lowlight conditions. Because the camera offers an expandable ISO range of 25600, that nicely helps you to get the superior quality of images. On the other hand, the 1300D is limited ISO range upto 12800 only.

Continuous shooting speed- A 58 of Sony offers nice 5fps of continuous shooting, which is much needed for freezing the fast actions of any athlete, sports person, any running wild animal etc. But this continuous shooting is limited to only 3fps.
