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.

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.

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.

So in love. Makes the best camera for vlogs(video blogs). I'm so glad I bought this on sale (December 31, 2014). If you can't afford this now, wait until December or black friday. It was on sale for $250 when I bought it in December. All images attached were shots with the kit lens.

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!

We just had our one year anniversary with this camera, and we couldn't be happier. This is our first step up from the "point and shoot" realm, and this camera exceeded our expectations in pretty much every respect. It takes beautiful photos in terms of clarity and color. The focus is fast and accurate, although more expensive cameras might get even faster. It's not even in the same ballpark as the photos we get with our phones or with our old point and shoots. The 16-50mm lens was a little limiting in terms of zoom, but we just got the 55-200mm for the holidays and it has really increased our already voluminous photo taking with this camera. Transferring the photos to a phone, tablet, or laptop is way easier than I expected. It sets up a wireless "hotspot" even in places where there is otherwise no internet or network connection, and it transfers quickly and painlessly (you just need to get the app). On top of all of that, it's much smaller and less obtrusive than traditional SLR's. I can't recommend this camera enough.

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.
