When size really does matter: discover smarter shooting and wireless sharing with the pocket-sized NEX-5T

27 August 2013

  • NFC for easier Wi-Fi connection1,2; Smart Remote Control for shooting from your smartphone
  • Large Exmor™ APS HD CMOS sensor for pro-quality pictures and Full HD video in an ultra-compact body
  • Fast Hybrid AF for crisp, precise tracking autofocus
  • Add more functions with growing range of PlayMemories Camera Apps™

NEX5T wSELP1650 1 BK

It’s the big sensor that means better pictures and this really is where size matters. The new NEX-5T from Sony packs pro-quality pictures and wireless freedom into a power packed, pocket-sized camera with the limitless creativity of interchangeable lenses.

Slipping snugly into a pocket or bag, it’s the perfect partner for passionate photographers who want DSLR-style images and generous control options with less to carry.

Wi-Fi lets you connect the NEX-5T with your smartphone, PC or TV and wirelessly transfer photos or videos3. It’s also the first interchangeable lens E-mount camera from Sony with NFC, giving the extra convenience of One-touch wireless connection with Android smartphones and tablets1 for easy sharing and even remote control of the camera. There’s no set-up needed – simply touch your mobile device against the NEX-5T and a wireless connection’s made instantly. Embedded Smart Remote Control lets you trigger shutter release from your smartphone: it’s great for group shots when you don’t want to be left out of the action.

Inside the NEX-5T is a generously-sized APS-C sensor with 16.1 effective megapixels that grabs more light than the small sensor in ordinary compact cameras. You’ll be rewarded by richly-detailed DSLR-quality stills and Full HD video, with ultra-low picture noise for crisper twilight shots and atmospheric interiors.

Don’t miss those split-second moments, from spontaneous portraits to vibrant street scenes. Advanced Fast Hybrid AF combines phase-detection autofocus to track fast-moving subjects with contrast-detection AF for absolute precision. It’s a winning combination that delivers speedy, accurate focusing in any scene.

And don’t forget – sometimes, it’s all about you. Great self-shot portraits are simple with the tiltable LCD screen that flips up to 180° for a comfortable view with the camera held at arm’s length. Auto Portrait Framing takes the guesswork out of good-looking selfies, cropping your composition for polished results. There’s also a digital level gauge that makes it easy to keep horizons steady and true.

Serious photographers have plenty of opportunities to fine-tune their artistic vision. The NEX-5T offers extra flexibility with its dedicated control dial and assignable Fn button for instant recall of frequently-needed functions.

New PlayMemories Camera Apps

There’s a growing range of downloadable PlayMemories Camera Apps that add more fun and exciting functions to NEX-5T. Pick from a choice of free and paid-for picture effects and handy utilities. It’s a great way to broaden your creative options as your confidence and ambitions increase.

A brand-new Lens Compensation app lets expert users save and apply subtle image corrections for different lenses. Adjustable correction can be applied to compensate for peripheral shading, chromatic aberration and barrel/pincushion distortion.

Smart Remote Control is now updated to Version 2.0, adding Autofocus control directly from the touchscreen of your linked smartphone or tablet (requires installation of latest version of PlayMemories Mobile). There’s even more power over your image with fingertip adjustments for EV compensation, aperture, shutter speed, ISO, and white balance. In addition, MF Assist lets you accurately check focus of portraits and macro shots on your phone or tablet’s large screen.

Also updated, Direct Upload Version 2.0 streamlines photo transfers to social networking services wherever there’s a Wi-Fi hotspot handy4. Installing the Flickr Add-on now allows direct image uploads to Flickr.

Co-ordinating cases and accessories

A range of optional accessories offers stylish protection for the camera. Exclusively designed in a range of colours to fit the NEX-5T and NEX-5R, the LCJ-EBA is a thin and light Body Jacket that also allows full use of the NFC function offered by the NEX-5T. The LCS-BBK Soft Carrying Case slips easily into a travel bag. The LCS-EMJ Soft Carrying Case features an expandable zipper section to accommodate different sizes of attached lens. The versatile BC-QM1 Battery Charger can quickly charge batteries for recent α and Handycam® models, and also can supply power to your smartphone via USB. The ACC-PFW1 Accessory Kit includes the PCK-LS1EM LCD Protect Sheet to keep fingerprints at bay, plus the VF-K405MP MC Protector (40.5mm diameter) and NP-FW50 Rechargeable Battery Pack.

The new NEX-5T interchangeable lens compact camera from Sony is available to pre-order now on www.sony.co.uk and will go on general sale in Europe from September 2013.

1 For NFC compatible smartphones or tablets with Android OS Version 4.0 or later.

2 Image transfer to PC or TV from non-NFC smartphone or tablet requires making Wi-Fi connection.

3 Video format or the compatibility of transferring video, depends on devices.
