Simply tap the camera to another NFC-enabled device like a tablet or smartphone and photos are transferred with just one touch.
NEX5TLB




Technology



16.1 MP APS-C size HD image sensor

You’ve never captured so much detail with a camera this size before. The NEX-5T features the same sensor format that Sony builds into the full-sized α DSLRs. With 13 times the area of the typical point-and-shoot image sensor, APS-C sensor size makes the difference between “snapshots” and “photographs,” delivering an exceptional combination of high resolution, high sensitivity and gorgeous, blurred backgrounds.


Fast Hybrid AF

Sony’s advanced Fast Hybrid AF combines two technologies for outstanding performance: Phase detection auto focus for quick response that is ideal when tracking fast-moving subjects and contrast-detection auto focus for added precision. A perfect match that delivers optimal Auto Focus for fast, precise focusing in any scene, whether capturing stills or HD video.

Full HD Movies1 at 60p/60i/24p

The compact NEX-5T doesn’t just deliver incredible images; it is also features powerful video capture capabilities as well. Shoot HD Movies in your choice of super-smooth 60p, standard 60i or cinematic 24p, all at Full HD 1920x1080 resolution1. AVCHD codec delivers stunning picture quality. MP4 codec offers smaller files for easier upload to the web.



Instantly connect to smartphones and tablets

Easily share or transfer photos from your camera to an Android smartphone or Tablet with just one touch. No setup is required beyond downloading the free PlayMemories Mobile app to your device. Made possible by NFC technology, once connected, you can remotely control the camera’s shutter release from your mobile device and instantly receive the captured image via Wi-Fi.


PlayMemories Camera Apps

Take even more creative shots using PlayMemories Camera Apps. Create Time Lapse photos, Motion Shots or Cinematic Photos with downloaded apps and the push of a button. Other apps allow you to control your camera via smartphone or even post your photos directly to Facebook.

Flip-up 3.0 Touchscreen LCD

The NEX-5T is equipped with a tilt-able LCD screen that flips up 180-degrees without sacrificing the compactness for which the 5-series is renowned for. This makes taking great self-portraits incredibly easy since users can precisely compose shots, choosing to include people or objects in the frame for more satisfying results. This feature is also very useful for video blogging.



Additional Features


Picture Effect mode

Ditch Photoshop and hours of editing. With 11 types of in-camera picture effects, you can create unique and exciting photos that really pop. Effects include: Soft Focus, Partial Color, Retro Photo, Miniature and more.

Auto Object Framing

Give your photos a professional look with Auto Object Framing. Auto Object Framing automatically recognizes a scene and subjects in your photos and crops a photo accordingly allowing you to have your original photo and a second cropped photo. Thus, creating ordinary photos into stunning compositions.

Sweep Panorama Technology

Create stunning vertical or horizontal landscape photos with just the touch of a button. It's easy - simply press the shutter, sweep vertically or horizontally and the camera does the rest, continuously shooting images and stitching them together into one panoramic image.

Photo Creativity Touch interface

The Photo Creativity touch interface enables you to easily enjoy the creative expression of SLR-quality digital imaging without the complicated settings. Changes can be easily made using the control dial with results seen in real time on the LCD. Settings include; Background Defocus, Brightness, Color, Vividness and most Picture Effects.

Multi-interface terminal

Multi-interface Smart Accessory terminal greatly expands the connectivity options such as external flash units.

Up to ISO 25600 sensitivity with advanced noise reduction

Take gorgeous low light photos using the new Exmor sensor that features the same adaptive noise reduction technology found in Sony's high end, full frame SLT-A99V DSLR. The NEX-5T offers a wide range of sensitivity from ISO 100 to ISO 25600.

Auto HDR mode

With Auto HDR its now easy to capture more dynamic range in your compositions than a single exposure can. The NEX-5T combines the best highlight detail from one shot, the best mid-tones from a second and the best shadow detail from a third to combine for one incredible shot (up to 6 EV stop range).

Dynamic Range Optimizer (DRO)

Improves results with backlit subjects and recovers details hidden in shadows. Settings include Auto and Level with a choice of five operating levels and Off.

Clear Image Zoom

Utilizing Sony’s exclusive By Pixel Super Resolution Technology, Clear Image Zoom increases the effective focal length of your lens up to 2x by digitally magnifying the center of your image with nearly imperceptible degradation. It virtually doubles the effective focal length of whatever lens you’re using providing greater shooting flexibility.

Stamina battery power for up to
330 shots7

Take up to 330 shots on a single charge7 with Sony lithium ion Stamina battery power. Sony's InfoLITHIUM battery system enables you to see the percent of power remaining, so you can keep shooting in confidence.

Accepts Sony E-mount lenses

Compatible with Sony’s wide selection of E-mount series of smaller, lighter lenses designed specifically for α NEX compact interchangeable lens cameras. Open up a world of endless creative options.

Face Detection/ Registration technology

The camera can automatically detect and register up to eight individual faces and adjust focus, exposure, white balance and flash to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends. It can also prioritize children and adults.

Six Creative Style settings

Control how the camera processes your images with six finishing styles: Standard, Vivid, Portrait, Landscape, Sunset and B&W. You can even fine-tune contrast, saturation, and sharpness to your personal taste.

Convenient USB charging

Easily recharge the camera via USB charging. Simply connect the bundled USB cable and recharge the battery without removing it from the camera, either via AC outlet or PC connection.


Innovation from every angle

Experience the quality and performance of Sony’s innovative and award-winning mirrorless line of cameras. Easily compare features to choose a camera that suits your level of shooting, whether you’re a casual enthusiast, advanced hobbyist or an experienced professional.

Style Name: Body OnlyColor Name: Black
I have been shooting with the NEX system for a couple years now, starting with a NEX 5n. I am thankful I found this system because NEX is the reason I am so into photography today. Since the release of the original NEX 3 and NEX 5, Sony has done an excellent job at building a strong ecosystem with high and low end models for every type of shooter and every budget. The NEX 5 series is famous for being the best compromise in price and performance of all the other NEX cameras.

Standard for the NEX 5 series the 5t has the following advantages vs. other cameras in its class:
-Small size, yet powerful "big camera" performance.
-Some of the best low light capabilities thanks to the Exmor sensor and 16 megapixels
-High speed 10 FPS shooting for action/kids
-Wifi and apps
-Very fast auto-focus
-Excellent video performance
-A great lens lineup that keeps getting better each year

This model, the NEX 5t, is another incremental upgrade for the NEX 5 series. It brings some cool and innovative features to the table. This year's model take all the great features from last year's 5r and adds NFC and changes the kit lens to the 16-50 power zoom, making this system even more compact. The NFC is really cool because for those with android phones equipped with NFC, it means quicker pairing between the two devices. The only real drawback is for those NFC equipped laptops, windows doesn't support large file transfer. The new kit lens is a welcome edition.
Now the NEX isn't a perfect system, but Sony has worked hard to introduce new features with every new release. The only problem with this is Sony decided it would be a good idea to release these features in incremental upgrades every year, rather than release big upgrades over a longer period of time.

Style Name: With 16-50mm LensColor Name: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The NEX-5T is Sony's midrange-ish mirrorless camera. It's not as compact as the NEX-3, but is still much more pocketable than a lot of interchangeable lens cameras. I've had the older NEX-5N for a couple of years and never really took to it, even though it produced great photos and videos. It was just too much of a chore to use most of the time, so I ended up taking photos with my smartphone camera or my dSLR. I had high hopes for the new NEX-5T, especially with its Wi-Fi support, but alas, the 5T is probably destined to sit in a bag most of the time too.

PROS
- Excellent photo quality
- Great video quality
- Very compact for an ILC
- Articulating LCD
- USB charging capability
- Reasonably fast autofocus

CONS
- Not enough physical controls
- Proprietary "accessory port"
- No built-in flash
- No external battery charger
- Wi-Fi feature is just so-so

DESIGN
I really like the design of the NEX-5 series. It's smaller than most mirrorless cameras, has a good grip and is pretty easy to carry around. The new 16-50mm power zoom kit lens is much smaller than the old 18-55mm lens, making the whole kit just that much easier to carry around. The power zoom lens takes a little getting used to and I'm not a huge fan of the power zoom, but it's fine.

The LCD is nice and bright and articulates. In addition to being able to shoot above your head or below your knees with the aid of the LCD, you can now also shoot selfies with ease. The external flash does get it in the way, however.

Style Name: With 16-50mm LensColor Name: Silver Verified Purchase
Everything about this camera is amazing. Sharp quality, compact, good battery life and quick shutter speeds and it does what I need it to do and happy with the results. I am giving it a 5 star considering that this is a product review and I'm not going to knock off any stars because I had other issues.

***THE "OTHER" ISSUES***

As far as the seller that my camera was shipped from, which was Focus Camera, my product seemed to be in used condition, it did not come with the manufacturer's seal, product tags with info or stickers. For the most part, unless it is an open box item or display item, it will have all those things in the box. My shipment also did not come with a battery and the top right part of the LCD screen is warped like someone had pressed really hard on it and did not retain the shape. I kept this product and complained to Amazon Customer service and they had sent me a replacement product within 2 days. I received the second shipment and come to find out that it was the same exact issue, used condition with all the product labels, tags, etc. were missing and on the bottom of the camera there are scratches on the part where you would screw the camera onto a tripod. Same LCD issue with a bigger warped area more on the middle right hand corner where there is supposed to be an orange sticker if the product was brand new. I had even gone out of my way to go to a local Best Buy store and even their floor display had orange stickers all over it with the product tags. Their product was in perfect condition even though it was a display, no screen warping whatsoever so BUYERS BEWARE.

This is not acceptable if you are paying for a BRAND NEW ITEM.
