Sony Digital Camera - Compact Interchangeable Lens

DSLR Quality and Wi-Fi Convenience

The NEX-5T includes refined capabilities in a pocket-able size that makes it is easy to go almost anywhere. Features include exceptional image quality from the large APS-C image sensor, precise focusing with Fast Hybrid AF, and interchangeable lens capability. Simply tap the camera to another NFC-enabled device like a tablet or smartphone and photos are transferred with just one touch.


Go from Snapshot to Photograph

The 16.1MP APS-C size HD image sensor is the same sensor format that Sony builds into their full-sized DSLR cameras. With 13 times the area of the typical point-and-shoot image sensor, the NEX-5T APS-C sensor delivers high resolution, high sensitivity and gorgeous backgrounds.


Fast Hybrid Autofocus

The NEX-5T is as fast as the world you're trying to capture. Sony's advanced Fast Hybrid Autofocus combines two technologies for outstanding performance: Phase detection auto focus for quick response that's ideal when tracking fast-moving subjects, and contrast-detection auto focus for added precision. It's a perfect match that delivers optimal auto focus for fast, precise focusing anywhere and everywhere.


Shoot Full HD Movies

Capture HD Movies in your choice of super-smooth 60p, standard 60i or cinematic 24p, all at Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution. The AVCHD™ codec delivers stunning picture quality while the MP4 codec lets you compress to smaller files for easier upload to the web.


Instantly Connect to Smartphones and Tablets

Lose the cords and cables – the NEX-5R's Wi-Fi® NFC capability lets you instantly connect to smartphones and tablets. Simply download the free PlayMemories Mobile™ App, touch it to your Android™ smartphone or tablet, and create a connection that lets you transfer photos, remotely control the camera's shutter release, and instantly receive the captured image via Wi-Fi.


PlayMemories Camera Apps

Personalize your camera by adding new features of your choice with PlayMemories Camera Apps. Apps include enhanced portraits, detailed close-ups, sports, time lapse, motion shot and much more. Use apps that shoot, share and save photos using Wi-Fi that make it easy to control and view your camera from smartphone, and post directly to Facebook®.


180-Degree Tiltable Touch LCD

Change your view with a tiltable 3in. touchscreen LCD that flips up 180-degrees without sacrificing the compactness of the renowned NEX-5 Series. See what you're shooting no matter where the camera is and take stunning self-portraits, perfectly framed low-angle shots, and incredibly precise compositions.
