The black Sony Alpha 5000 Compact System Camera with 16-50 mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Zoom Lens lets you discover professional image quality in a small camera that packs large capabilities.
A compact camera that's easy to use
You won't have a problem handling the Sony Alpha 5000. It's exceptionally lightweight and compact, making it great for travel and one of the lightest interchangeable-lens digital cameras available.
It's the ideal combination of heavyweight performance features and superb manageability for better mobile photography.
Incredible photos and videos in the palm of your hand
The a5000 is equipped with a 20.1 megapixel Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor that captures stunning details and allows you to creatively defocus areas of your images.
It's been teamed with a fast-acting BIONZ X image processing engine that realistically recreates textures and colours in real time, so your photos look just the way you saw the scene with your eyes. With a sensitivity range of ISO 100 to 16000, you'll be able to shoot even darker scenes without using a flash, preserving tone and atmosphere.
The MOVIE button is there to start off recording Full HD videos in AVHCD format. Select a 60i/50i (NTSC/PAL) frame rate for ultra-smooth movies, or record at the slower 24p/25p (NTSC/PAL) setting for a more traditional cinema-like look.
Dolby Digital Stereo Creator delivers precision audio to match your high-quality movies.
Better focusing and simpler shooting
With fast autofocus you're assured of fantastic results, and the option is there to manually focus the camera if you prefer to take control yourself.
The Sony a5000 Compact Camera also offers a 3” TFT LCD screen that can be tilted through 1800C, opening up a world of new photo options. Flip it up to fine-tune your compositions, taking high-angle shots more easily or achieving better shots from low positions for more dynamic photographs.
It's also the ideal way to achieve perfectly-composed self-portraits, so you can show your friends and family where you were in the best way possible. With Clear Image Zoom you'll be able to keep things sharply focused while zooming, and any wrinkles or dullness are cleverly smoothed out with the Soft Skin Effect. Shoot easily with one hand for more convenient image capture.
