Description

The Alpha NEX-5R Mirrorless Digital Camera with 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 Retractable Zoom Lens (Black) from Sony is Sony's latest compact interchangeable lens "mirrorless" camera. If you're considering an upgrade to a DSLR, but not sure you want to carry around such a big camera (or the big expense) or you're presently shooting with a DSLR and want comparable image quality in a compact form, consider the Sony NEX-5R. For starters, the 16MP APS-C-size sensor, fast Hybrid Autofocus, burst shooting up to 10 frames per second and on-camera operational dials offer a few of the quality and design elements of a DSLR. Of course, you also have the capability to use a variety of lenses, the hallmark of DSLR photography. However, the NEX-5R brings with it advantages that DSLR's cannot offer, starting with its compact body which is about half the size of a DSLR. Add to that built-in Wi-Fi and a tilt-able LCD screen with touch screen operation (including shutter release!) and you begin to realize that the NEX-5R is a special camera that can bring you the best of both worlds.

16.1MP APS-C size HD Image Sensor

The same sensor format that Sony builds into the full-sized Alpha DSLRs. With 13 times the area of the typical point-and-shoot image sensor, APS-C sensor size makes the difference between snapshots and photographs, delivering an exceptional combination of high resolution, high sensitivity and gorgeous, blurred backgrounds.

Fast Hybrid AF

Sony's advanced Fast Hybrid AF combines two technologies for outstanding performance: Phase detection auto focus for quick response that is ideal when tracking fast-moving subjects and contrast-detection auto focus for added precision. A perfect match that delivers optimal Auto Focus for fast, sharp focusing in any scene.

Full HD Movies at 60p/60i/24p

Capture HD Movies in your choice of super-smooth 60p, standard 60i or cinematic 24p, all at Full HD 1920x1080 resolution. AVCHD codec delivers stunning picture quality and MP4 codec offers smaller files for easier upload to the web.

Wi-Fi Sharing

Wi-Fi capability - a first for Alpha-series - lets users transfer photos directly to smartphones and tablets with the PlayMemories Mobile app. Wi-Fi capability allows for sharing, viewing and saving photos for expanded photo-shooting enjoyment. Photos can be easily transferred to smartphones and tablets, viewed on large screen TVs or saved to PCs.

PlayMemories Camera Apps

Supports PlayMemories Camera Apps, the world's first application download service that lets users install new camera functions as needed.

180-degree Tilt-able 3.0" Touch LCD

The NEX-5R is equipped with a tilt-able LCD screen that flips up 180 without sacrificing the compactness for which the 5-series is renowned. This makes taking great self-portraits incredibly easy since users can precisely compose shots, choosing to include people or objects in the frame for more satisfying results.

Control Dial and Touch Screen

Control dial, Fn (function) button and touch screen (including touch shutter function) greatly facilitate operation and getting the shot that much easier.

Picture Effect Mode

There are 7 types (11 variations) of picture effects to choose from: Posterization (Color), Posterization (B/W), Pop Color, Retro Photo, Partial Color(R), Partial Color(G), Partial Color(B), Partial Color(Y), High-key, High Contrast Monochrome, Toy Camera. Each is unique and each give you a new and exciting way to make your images and videos pop.

6-image Layering

The camera leverages the large, APS-C image sensor and captures six images in a fraction of a second. The camera then combines the data from the 6 different images up to ISO 25600 to create a single image. This method is used to control blur in Anti-Motion Blur mode or to get cleaner, sharper nighttime pictures in Hand-held Twilight mode.

Accepts Sony E-mount Lenses

Compatible with Sony's wide selection of E-mount series of smaller, lighter lenses designed specifically for Alpha NEX compact interchangeable lens cameras. The great thing about mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras is the creative options offered by a full line of lenses that continue to grow but will remain compatible.

Photo Creativity Touch Interface

The Photo Creativity touch interface enables you to easily enjoy the creative expression of SLR-quality digital imaging without the complicated settings. Changes can be easily made using the control dial with results seen in real time on the LCD. Settings include: Background Defocus, Brightness, Color, Vividness and most Picture Effects.

Auto Portrait Framing

Simply photograph a person and Auto Portrait Framing will save an additional, optimally framed image in portrait or landscape orientation. Combining Face Detection and By Pixel Super Resolution technologies with rule of thirds, Auto Portrait Framing provides beautifully composed and appealingly balanced full resolution portraits.

Clear Image Zoom

Utilizing Sony's exclusive By Pixel Super Resolution Technology, Clear Image Zoom increases the effective focal length of your lens up to 2x by digitally magnifying the center of your image with nearly imperceptible degradation. It virtually doubles the effective focal length of whatever lens you're using providing greater shooting flexibility.

Convenient USB charging

Easily recharge the camera via USB charging. Simply connect the bundled USB cable and recharge the battery without removing it from the camera, either via AC outlet or PC connection.

Auto HDR

High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography captures more scene contrast than a single exposure can handle by combining the best highlight detail from one shot and the best shadow detail from another for one incredible shot. Handles severe backlighting and other high-contrast scenes. Captures in a split second.

Exposure Settings

The NEX-5R offers complete exposure control for the advanced shooter and automatic settings for those who prefer to let the camera decide. Exposure settings include: iAUTO, Superior Auto, Programmed AE (P), Aperture Priority (A), Shutter Speed Priority (S), Manual (M), Sweep Panorama and Scene Selection.

Sweep Panorama Technology

Capture expansive landscapes automatically. Press the shutter, sweep vertically or horizontally. The camera does the rest, continuously shooting images and stitching them together. Up to 23 MP image size and up to 202 degrees maximum sweep angle at 18mm focal length. Panorama Still Image Size : Horizontal Wide: 12,416 x 1,856 (23M), Vertical: 5,536 x 2,160 (12M), Horizontal Std: 8,192 x 1,856 (15M), Vertical Std: 3,872 x 2,160 (8.4M)

Fast Auto Focus

Some cameras in this class are slow to focus. That can make you miss the shot on fast-moving subjects like sports and unpredictable subjects like pets and babies. Sony's fast Contrast Auto Focus system typically takes as little as 0.3 seconds and also offers continuous Auto Focus when shooting movies.

Manual Focus

Manual Focus Assist greatly magnifies the viewfinder image when you touch the focus ring, making it easy to get razor-sharp images. And Peaking AF display makes precise manual focusing much easier by highlighting the edges that are in focus in your choice of three colors (white, red, or yellow). This is especially helpful during macro or portrait photography where your focal plane can make or break your shot. Works with E-mount lenses only.

Enhanced Tracking Focus

Tracking Focus continuously tracks a user-designated subject and is now more effective at tracking people. If the subject turns away from the camera, face-detection tracking automatically switches to subject tracking and continues tracking.

Face Detection Technology

The camera can automatically detect up to eight individual faces and adjust focus, exposure, white balance and flash to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends. Can prioritize children or adults.

Smile Shutter Technology

Captures a smile the moment it happens. Simply select the Smile Shutter mode and the camera takes the picture automatically. You can prioritize children or adults and adjust the smile sensitivity.

Six Creative Style Settings

Control how the camera processes your images with six finishing styles: Standard, Vivid, Portrait, Landscape, Sunset and B&W. You can even fine-tune contrast, saturation, and sharpness to your personal taste.

PhotoTV HD Compatibility

Optimizes compatible BRAVIA televisions for gorgeous display of digital pictures with required HDMI cable.

Dual Format Media Card Slot

For cost-effective, convenient storage and sharing of your images, the camera accepts Memory Stick PRO Duo/Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo and SD/SDHC media (Class 4 or higher recommended),

Anti-Dust Technology

Dust on the image sensor leads to blemishes in the picture. To protect the sensor, Sony incorporates an advanced ultrasonic system, which effectively shakes dust off the sensor surface.

Sony E-mount 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 Retractable Zoom Lens

This NEX-5R includes the Sony E-mount 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 Retractable Zoom lens with an electrically driven zoom mechanism. The retractable lens collapses to 1.2" (30 mm) when the camera is off, keeping the camera very portable. With a 35mm focal length equivalency of 24-75mm you have true wide-angle capability and can range up to standard telephoto length for drawing subjects close. Nine optical elements (including 4 aspherical elements and one ED element) mean minimal distortion and even light transmission to the sensor. A stepping motor with silent autofocus makes it great for shooting video and manual focus capability offers control when needed. Optical SteadyShot image stabilization makes it easier to achieve crisp, stable images and video in low-light or when zooming in on distant subjects.
