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.

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.
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.
Change your view with a tiltable LCD touchscreen that flips up 180-degrees without sacrificing compactness.
Lenses & Cases
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. Click here to browse our selection.

- Zoom (digital)
Enlarges video captured by the optical zoom and makes it seem even closer. This involves zooming in on an existing image, so it gives slightly less detailed results than an equivalent optical zoom
- Zoom (optical)
Allows you to zoom the image closer to the subject. Optical zooms feature physically moving lens components, so it maintains the image quality as you zoom in. Digitial zooms essentially crop an existing image, so may lose image quality as they zoom in
