Never knowingly undersold

Product information

The NEX-5T takes pictures with the speed and precision of a DSLR. A large 16.1 megapixel APS-C sensor delivers sharp shots and bright images even in low light. Capture the action with quick auto focus then connect to your smartphone or tablet through the built-in NFC and Wi-Fi.

Key benefits:

  • When it comes to taking great pictures, the NEX-5T has a big heart, an APS-C sensor the same size as in DSLR cameras. It captures more light than other interchangeable lens cameras. More of the image reaches the sensor, giving you pro-quality shots up to 16.1 megapixels.
  • View and share your images simply and conveniently, without the hassle of cables or complicated menus. With built-in NFC and Wi-Fi you can connect to your tablet, smartphone or other NFC-equipped device with just one touch. Or use your smartphone to control your camera.
  • Direct your own movies with High Definition recording for smooth, professional looking video. The large sensor knows when you’re shooting in low light conditions and adjusts automatically to make the scene brighter.
  • Capture those 'blink-and-you-miss-them' moments with new Hybrid Auto Focus technology. It locks into focus as fast as a DSLR and takes photos at up to 10 frames per second, making it ideal for spontaneous shots or high-speed action.
  • Looking for a different point of view? Move the tiltable touchscreen LCD up to 180° to capture those more challenging photos. It's also fast and intuitive to use. Just touch anywhere on the screen and the camera will focus automatically and take the shot.
  • The large sensor and BIONZ processor delivers up to ISO 25600 for clear low-light shots.
  • Includes: two lenses, lens cap, flash, flash case, power cord, AC adapter, shoulder strap, micro USB cable and CD ROM.

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.
