From the Manufacturer

Sony make . believe

Sony make . believe
The NEX-5T is a powerful, pocketable digital camera – great for capturing incredible pictures almost anywhere. Features include exceptional image quality from the large APS-C image sensor and precise focusing with Fast Hybrid AF and interchangeable lens capability. Plus with built-in NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, sharing your photos is easier than ever. Simply tap the camera to another NFC-enabled device like a tablet or smartphone and photos are transferred with just one touch.


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.

Style Name: Body OnlyConfiguration: BaseColor: 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: w/ 16-50mmConfiguration: BaseColor: Black Verified Purchase
I wanted a camera I could take into concerts. The big cameras are usually turned away at the door. This one was small enough that it doesn't look like a full production. The camera feels well built, not cheap. It does feel like something you could drop so make sure you get some kind of wrist strap.

FLASH: I hate the flash. It blows everything out. It attached to the top and sets up at 45 degrees. I can't believe they didn't let it rotate straight up or even back to bounce light. Would have made the flash sooooo much better and usable.

CASE: You need protection on this camera. I found an awesome case, guarantee it's the best you can get for this with a little mod. Get the Lowepro DV 35 for 13 dollars. (When it gets there CAREFULLY cut out side straps and sim card holder. It will open up like a clam and be a an unbelievable case that fits snugly and secure. Will also hold your flash case. Trust me on this.

LOW LIGHT: I thought the camera did a fairly good job in low light. Like anything, you gotta shoot a bunch to get a few. It handled the colors pretty good. One thing thats cool is when it shoots multiple shots at once, like 9. Then it pieces them all together to make one great shot. Its pretty unreal. I felt like I shot better shots in the manual mode adjusting the ISO myself. I included a couple photos from an Easton Corbin concert.

WIFI: You can drop photos right onto your phone for upload to Facebook. Pretty cool. You may be able to upload to computer wifi as well.

OUTSIDE LIGHT: Shoots really nice shots. here is where this unit shines. It may not be high end camera stuff but if you know what you're doing you can get it damn close.

VIDEO: Good video, probably comparable to iPhone 6.

If I could give this 20 stars out of 5, I would. I agonized over which camera to get, almost went with a Canon Rebel T3i (which I'm sure is also wonderful! It's a consistently popular choice), and I am seriously thankful I went with this. I bought it for beauty blogging, and there are several reasons it's ideal for this purpose:

1. A built-in, adjustable skin softener. I recommend keeping it on 'low', as it does just enough. It looks insanely natural on this level.

2. WiFi connectivity. It's not the smoothest thing in the world, but it does the job of getting your photos to your phone well enough, and at a decent speed. Does just what I need it to do.

3. Adjustable screen! A must-have!

4. The camera adjusts and auto-focuses like a dream for what I'm using it for. It gives you a beautiful focus on your subject, and softly blurs the background automatically, exactly as I need it. Do keep in mind though that if you're going in for a super close-up (say, just shooting an eye), it takes a little longer to adjust. This isn't exactly an issue though.

5. This is SUPER beginner-friendly. Seriously, I know nothing of photography, but was able to jump in right away, easily adjust my settings as I wanted, and start shooting in minutes. It's not convoluted like I had feared. The finer tuning options are there for the more savvy, but if you're like me, you can get by without any hassle.

My one con with this is the touch screen when navigating through the menu - it's a little clunky. I feel like this could potentially be a frustration for someone who is really doing in-depth work through the menu and manually adjusting settings. For someone like me who isn't really getting into all that though, it's only a minor annoyance.
