Remarkably Lightweight, Mobile Design The world‘s lightest interchangeable-lens digital camera* is conveniently compact, yet delivers truly satisfying handling via solid, refined grip and big LCD screen. Enjoy mobility without compromise in the α5000. Among interchangeable-lens digital cameras equipped with an APS-C image sensor. As of January 2014 at the time of the press release, based on a Sony survey.
Take Self Portraits Easily Easily capture yourself striking the perfect pose - alone or with your significant other - by simply flipping the LCD screen up to see what the camera sees.
Maximum Details Anytime, Anywhere Capture every gorgeous detail with Sony‘s 20.1-megapixel Exmor™ APS HD CMOS sensor, which produces attractive defocusing effects thanks to its large dimensions.
Compelling Realism In Every Frame Sony‘s BIONZ X™ image processing engine faithfully reproduces textures and details in real time, as seen by the naked eye, via extra high-speed processing capabilities. It enables more natural details, more realistic images, richer tonal gradations and lower noise whether you shoot still images or movies.
Share Images With One Touch Share photos and MP4 movies in an instant by simply touching the camera to your friend‘s Android™ smartphone or tablet1. This remarkably convenient wireless feature is made possible by built-in Wi-Fi and NFC™ (Near Field Communication) technology that also works with preinstalled Smart Remote Control Embedded2 to enable remote control of your camera from the smartphone or tablet. 1 Requires installation of the latest free downloadable PlayMemories Mobile app 2 If the mobile device is not compatible with NFC, the camera can still connect via Wi-Fi.
A Flash Of Brilliance When you need a little extra burst of light, the built-in pop-up flash (GN4; ISO 100·m) does the trick. Combined with the α5000‘s maximum sensitivity of ISO 16000, the flash ensures lovely photos in dimly lit interiors or at night. Various flash modes can be used to add appealing catch lights to portraits, convey a sense of motion, etc. Note: When using the included E PZ 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OSS (SELP1650) lens, illumination from the built-in flash may be partially obstructed at wide-angle focal lengths.
Full HD Movie Shooting Simply press the MOVIE button to start recording a Full HD movie in the AVCHD format. You can choose a fast 60i/50i* setting for super-smooth results or a slower 24p/25p* setting to recreate the look of traditional cinema. Fast autofocusing ensures great results.
Photo Creativity Enjoy creative photographic expression by entering the Photo Creativity mode - for easy adjustment of Background Defocus, Brightness, Color and Vividness - or adding Picture Effect modes while viewing the results in real-time on the LCD screen.
