Sony A5000 Compact System Camera with 16-50mm Lens, HD 1080p, 20.1MP, Wi-Fi, 3" Tilting LCD Screen, Black

Product information

The ILCE-5000 includes refined capabilities in a pocket-able size that makes it is easy to get beautiful pictures almost anywhere. Features include exceptional image quality from the large APS-C image sensor, fast focusing thanks to a brand new BIONZ® X processor and interchangeable lens capability. Near Field Communication enables single touch image sharing with compatible mobile devices or direct connection with Android and iOS devices via Wi-Fi.

This kit comes with a flexible 16-55mm lens that’s ideal for anything from street photography to portraiture.

Full size sensor
The same sensor format that Sony builds into the full-sized Alpha DSLRs gives the ILCE-5000 13 times the area of the typical point-and-shoot camera. APS-C sensor size delivers an exceptional combination of high resolution, high sensitivity and gorgeous bokeh effect.

Wi-Fi & NFC
Lose the cords and cables – Wi-Fi and NFC capability lets you instantly connect to smartphones and tablets. Simply download the free PlayMemories Mobile App, touch it to your Android smartphone or tablet, and create a connection that lets you transfer photos, remotely control the camera's shutter release, and instantly receive the captured image via Wi-Fi.

Camera apps
Personalise your camera by adding new features of your choice with PlayMemories Camera Apps. Apps include enhanced portraits, detailed close-ups, sports, time lapse, motion shot and much 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.

Full HD video
Capture HD Movies in at 60i or a 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 uploading.

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 lighting situation a breeze.

Tilting screen
Change your view with a tiltable LCD touchscreen that flips up 180-degrees without sacrificing compactness.

Feeling creative?

One of the biggest advantages of this camera is the sheer shooting flexibility on offer. You can use additional lenses to take wide-angle, telephoto, or close-up shots to suit just about any situation. The shorter the focal length (measured in mm), the wider the view will be – the longer the focal length, the more telescopic the picture. With a selection of interchangeable lenses at your disposal, the creative possibilities are endless.

Note: Please check the compatibility of the lens with your camera.

Q & As

Sony A5000 Compact System Camera with 16-50mm Lens, HD 1080p, 20.1MP, Wi-Fi, 3" Tilting LCD Screen 4 5 1 1
impressive, but ..... I wanted a camera which enabled me to determine aperture, shutter speed, ISO etc which the A5000 does. However, to my amazement - and disappointment - the camera takes better pictures when just left alone to figure everything out itself. It is, after all, a computer with a lens. So far, I have been impressed with the quality of the pictures it takes - particularly twilight and night shots and the WIFI function is actually useful and not a gimmick. However, I cant help feeling that I should have spent the additional money and bought a camera with a view finder. Although the LCD screen is very good and rotates usefully, it is no substitute for a viewfinder. Other than that, its a good camera with a versatile lens and small enough to be taken almost everywhere. 16 September 2014
