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.

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

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.

This is an incredible camera and I believe it has the best image quality of any camera for the price.
I used to have the Sony NEX 3n and didn't think it would be worth the upgrade, until I saw my friend's a5000 images and compared them to the Nex 3n. The difference was clearly noticeable. It looks like the new sensor and the new Bionz X imaging processor really do make a difference. I have uploaded some photos at 100% crop for you to compare. The only negative point about this camera is the lcd screen which is not all that great. It lacks sharpness and the viewing angles are pretty bad, but then again it is certainly good enough to check for in-focus images.
The auto focus speed is commendable for a camera with contrast detection, but about the same as the old NEX 3n.
Overall in my opinion sony mirrorless cameras are the best in the market, and the most compelling reason to opt for these instead of the Micro four thirds cameras is the much bigger APC-C sized sensor that especially provide superior low-light performance.
Overall I am happy to pay the extra dough to upgrade over the NEX 3n.
You are Basically getting the same image quality and core features of an a6000 for half the price.

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.

I absolutely love this camera! I have done some photography here and there, and I have gone through different cameras over the years. I wanted to find a camera that would take amazing pictures yet was light enough and small enough to be convenient to use everywhere I go. This camera is perfect for what I need it for! The picture quality is amazing. The colors are so nice, and the picture quality is crisp. I did a photo shoot recently with this camera, and I was very happy with how the camera performed and how well the pictures came out. I definitely recommend this camera!

Style Name: w/ 16-50mmConfiguration: BaseColor: 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 am absolutely in love with this camera!!! I am a big "instagramer" and I did a ton of research to find the best camera to take pictures of makeup and selfies in general (I know how bad this sounds, but it's part of my job, I work for a skincare/makeup company). This camera is amazing for this purpose because it has a soft flash (level 4 out of 10) so you can use the flash to take a photo of yourself and illuminate your face without it washing you out. Most cameras are level 8-10 in flash intensity which results in a white-cast and washed out look. It also has a soft skin function that is very subtle and makes your skin and hair look luminous and glowing. Also a great all-around camera and good for video.
