Technology



Go From Snapshot to Photograph

The same sensor format found in other conventional DSLRs is used on the a5000 offering 13x the area of a typical point-and-shoot image sensor. The 20.1MP APS-C sensor delivers an exceptional combination of high resolution, high sensitivity and gorgeous blurred backgrounds to give even simple shots an artistic touch.

Share Your Photos with Friends and Family Instantly

Wi-Fi connectivity allows you to control your camera with your compatible smartphone or tablet and the PlayMemories Camera Apps5. Frame your shot on your device's LCD, snap the shutter, and then transfer the images directly to your mobile device for quick editing and uploading. And with NFC (near field communication) technology, connecting has never been easier. Simply tap the camera to an NFC-enabled device, and you're ready to shoot and share without wires or hassles.

Shoot Full HD Movies

Capture HD Movies in your choice of standard 60i or cinematic 24p frames per second, all at Full HD 1920x1080 resolution. The AVCHD codec delivers stunning Blu-ray picture quality while the PC-friendly MP4 codec lets you compress to smaller 1080/30p files for easier upload to the Internet.


Built-in Pop-up Flash

Perfect when an extra burst of light is needed to get the shot, the pop-up flash combined with high ISO sensitivity makes shooting in just about any challenging lighting situation a breeze.

180-degree Tiltable LCD

Change your view with a tiltable LCD touchscreen that flips up 180-degrees without sacrificing compactness. Take stunning self-portraits, perfectly framed low angle shots, and incredibly precise composed pictures.

PlayMemories Camera Apps

Personalize your camera by adding new features of your choice with PlayMemories Camera Apps. PlayMemories Camera Apps offers a variety of apps to enhance your photos without ever needing advance photo editing skills. Choose apps for portraits, detailed close-ups, sports, time lapse, motion shot and 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.



Additional Features


20.1 MP Exmor HD APS sensor

You get incredible detail and gorgeous enlargements. Thanks to the large 20.1 megapixel APS-C sensor size and Sony Exmor APS HD CMOS technology, the camera achieves high resolution images with no penalty in low-light sensitivity or sensor noise.

Auto Object Framing fills the frame with your subject

Give your photos a professional look with Auto Object Framing. Featuring advancements like exceptional two-person portrait capability along with Face Detection and Tracking Focus, Auto Object Framing not only turns ordinary photos into stunning compositions but does so automatically recognizing the scene then cropping accordingly.

Convenient Power zoom lens w/ motor zoom lever and body control

A convenient zoom lever on the body of the camera allows for effortless one-handed operation and smooth zooming even when shooting self-portraits, bringing compact camera convenience to the realm of interchangeable-lens models.

Compact, easy-to-carry PZ 16-50mm kit lens

For the ultimate in portability, the a5000 includes the collapsible 16-50mm power zoom (SELP1650) as the kit lens. Ideal when traveling or anytime a compact, lightweight camera-combo is desired.

Compatible with Sony's E-Mount Lens System

To take advantage of its lightweight on-the-go body, the α5000 is compatible with Sony’s E-mount lens system and expanded line of E-mount compact and lightweight lenses - perfect for the traveler or street photographer.

Picture Effect modes


The a5000 includes 17 effects that can be applied to photos or movies, giving you the means to vastly expand your artistic repertoire. The ability to view effects in real-time on the LCD screen11 before the shot lets you experiment with different looks until you are satisfied with the result.

Photo Creativity feature


The a5000 provides easy access to Picture Effect settings as well as controls for Background Defocus, Brightness, Color and Vividness. Just activate Photo Creativity, choose the appropriate item then adjust while viewing in real-time on the LCD screen. The ability to combine settings offers nearly unlimited creative control, and lets you compensate for tricky lighting.

Superior Auto mode

Use Superior Auto mode to shoot photos and movies with the ease of a compact digital camera. In this mode, the camera recognizes the current shooting environment then adjusts settings for optimal results. Superior Auto also includes Auto HDR and Hand-held Twilight modes, both of which employ image compositing technology to handle difficult lighting by recording multiple images at high speed then compositing them to produce the final photo.

Anti-Motion Blur mode

Corrects for subject movement to capture amazingly clean and sharp images in low light. The camera leverages the large, APS-C image sensor and captures six images in a fraction of a second. Combining the data from all six creates a single image that minimizes subject blur.

Hand-held Twilight Mode

Get cleaner and sharper nighttime pictures—beyond the capability of traditional cameras—without using flash or a tripod. The camera leverages the large, APS-C image sensor and captures six images in a fraction of a second. Combining the data from all six creates a single image of extraordinary detail and low noise.

Face Detection/Smile Shutter

Set the a5000 to recognize faces and smiles. Face Detection locates up to eight faces in a composition then adjusts exposure, white balance and other settings based on these faces. Smile Shutter — adjustable in three levels — automatically takes a shot when smiles in the scene are detected.

Creative Style

Tailor the look of photos and movies before shooting. Choose from one of seven settings — Standard, Vivid, Portrait, Landscape, Sunset or Black & White — depending on the scene or your creative intent.

Speed Priority Continuous mode

Freeze fast-moving subjects by shooting at up to 4 fps. This is the ideal solution for photographing sports, children at play or other action.

Color Name: Black
This is a good camera, and just good. Don't get me wrong, it takes brilliant pictures and has great quality, but it lacks some features considering it's price range. You're better off spending a couple of hundred dollars more for the A6000. Here are my main gripes with this camera:

1. No electronic viewfinder
2. No mic input or headphone output
3. No 1080 x 60p video.
4. No hotshoe
5. PRICE!!!!

The above factors wouldn't be much of a problem if this camera was priced around say $300-$350, but it's not worth buying in my opinion. You're better off buying last years Sony NEX-6 which is almost the same price (due to it's big price drop recently), but gives you way more and is in fact a better camera! The NEX-6 has a high resolution Electronic Viewfinder, allows 60p video, has both a pop up flash which bends backwards so you can bounce it off a ceiling and a standard hotshoe, and it's price is about the same!

The only advantage this camera has is the flip up screen which allows one to shoot video or take pictures of themselves. Overall, I'd buy the NEX-6 over this, or if you can afford it, buy the A6000.....

I previously own a Sony NEX5, but had it stolen. I purchased this camera recently and am very pleased. I am very much a novice when it comes to photography and use this camera for photos of family, pets, travel, etc. I didn't want anything complicated, and I mostly use this on the auto setting. It takes beautiful photos, particularly in low light. I rarely need the flash.

Found this to be equivalent to my old NEX 5, great pictures and I could use the all my E-Mount lenses
Super sharp focusing and I like the inbuilt apps you can buy now, the Play memory account had an issue with taking cards to setup
Need to call up Sony to see if they can fix it. That way I can get their inbuilt Timer/Lapse.
Also liked the remote app that synced up well with my Android phone, it has full zoom and picture control built in.
The OLED display is a bit smaller than the NEX else would have earned a 5 star rating.

It would be better if it came with a good 50mm lens instead of a silly zoom lens, but I like it a lot.
I bought this camera as my first foray out of the point-and-shoot category because I wanted some more light gathering ability for taking indoor photographs. This fit the bill well.

Eventually I want to get it a couple of high f-stop fixed lenses, but even without them it really is a huge step up from a normal point and shoot, while still being small enough to consider taking on a hike. Perfect for my house.

I am not a professional. Thus, I don't need the PRO cameras with extreme high prices. The Sony a5000 is good enough for me.
