Product information
Top features:

- BIONZ X processor and hyper autofocus for clear and immediate results

- Fast Hybrid AF for capturing moving objects and artistic control

BIONZ X for faster image processing     


Make amateurs and professionals alike envy your photography.

Small enough to never leave behind, the Sony a5100 Mirrorless Camera has the BIONZ X data processer for a brain plus a hyper-quick autofocusing system, giving you textures and details in the blink of an eye.

Results are evidenced in your travel album of vibrant Canadian autumns and sweeping Boreal skies.

Fast Hybrid AF


Compatible with Final Cut Pro X and iMovie, the ILCE-5100L is loaded with functions that let you nail difficult shots so you can make the most of your hobbies.

That hyper-quick autofocusing system, or Fast Hybrid AF, lets you record moving objects with extreme accuracy for genuinely compelling films. Just press the movie button, and roll.

Adjust tracking duration and speed for greater artistic control of your autofocus to capture the splashes of sunlight playing in the room as your child crawls for the first time. Continuous shooting lets you immortalise a horse mid-air, while Eye AF keeps faces in sharp focus if that's what you're aiming for.

Powered zoom lens


The Alpha a5100 comes with a compact powered zoom lens, giving you total control to take close-up portraits and creative shots or expansive landscapes and architectural images of your extensive travels. The lens's Optical SteadyShot helps you achieve sharp images even when shooting handheld.

Tiltable LCD screen


In addition to a discreet and compact size you can take anywhere, this Sony mirrorless camera has a 3" LCD screen that tilts 180° so you can see what you're capturing regardless of your position.

One-touch function


Even from the opposite end of the planet, you can share your photos with friends and family effortlessly and with zero cable. Simply place the camera against an NFC smartphone or tablet to establish connection, then instantly share photographs and videos as you please.

One-touch remote lets you control your camera from your smartphone to snap shots from previously out-of-reach spots, opening up even greater creative possibilities.

Picture this

The decisive moment, that perfect shot, missed because you were waiting for your camera to be ready to take a photo again. But it's not your camera or your shooting technique – it's all down to having the right memory card.

To prevent that annoying lag when capturing high res images and HD video, opt for a high performance memory card with a fast write speed. Now you can focus on your subject.

So hard to work for a beginner like me. I have tried so many times to make this camera work but it just goes blurry, unfocused, lighting goes too saturated.

Delivering your online order

Get this delivered when it suits you

We’ll show you your current delivery options for this item in checkout. Subject to the time you order, and where you want delivery, these options will include:

  • FREE standard delivery in 7-10 working days
  • Next day delivery or any following day between 8am & 5pm (£5.00)
  • Delivery in a timeslot of your choice next day or any following day (£10.00)
Please note: if we’re out of stock of an item but getting more in, we indicate – on listings pages and the product page – how soon we can dispatch for delivery to you. In this case, please go ahead and order, and we’ll contact you later to confirm an exact delivery date.

Important update on our delivery service for small items

Our courier partners (DPD, Royal Mail and On the Dot) have all updated their delivery processes to take extra precautions due to Coronavirus (COVID-19). Please follow the below advice:

1. Customers can use the DPD app to nominate a ‘safe place’ for their delivery to be left if they do not want close contact.

For customers unable to use the DPD app, DPD is still able to offer a contact-free delivery, and will take a picture of the property and capture a proof of delivery name instead of capturing a customer signature.

2. Royal Mail is an unsigned service . Where Royal Mail needs to deliver a parcel, its teams will place the parcel at the customer’s door. Having knocked on the door, the delivery teams will step aside to a safe distance while the item is retrieved. If the delivery cannot take place, Royal Mail will take the parcel to the local depot for collection by the customer.  The parcel will be held for 18 days as per normal process.

3. For On the Dot, where a standard signature delivery is not possible, On the Dot will attempt to leave the parcel in a safe place and inform the customer of where the parcel has been placed.

To see the courier partner for your delivery, please check your dispatch confirmation email (which will also include your tracking reference).

Find something you want but it’s not in stock? On the item’s product page, simply click on ‘Email me when back in stock’, and let us have your email address. We’ll let you know as soon as it’s available again.

Returns and refunds

Whether an item you’ve bought is faulty or damaged, or you’ve changed your mind, it’s easy to get a refund.

Items you haven’t opened
Within 21 days of receiving an item you paid for online, on the phone, or in store you can return it for a full refund – provided your purchase is still in its original and unopened packaging. This promise is in addition to your statutory rights.

Items you’ve opened
Within 14 days of receiving an item you paid for online or on the phone, you can return it, even if you’ve opened it. To receive a refund, you must:

  • Let us know you plan to return the item within 14 days of delivery/collection
  • Physically return it within a further 14 days.
The item must be returned in ‘as new condition’ – not used or installed, and in its original packaging. More on returns and refunds.

Order online and collect in store

Order & Collect ­­– The majority of our stores are now open and offering a collection service, allowing you to safely order online and collect from store contact-free.

Our stores with parking available can offer a Drive Thru collection experience using the parking bays clearly marked outside the store. Here’s how it works;

  • Once you’ve had confirmation your order is ready to collect, drive to the store.
  • When you’ve arrived, click on the link in your confirmation email to let our team know.
  • One of our colleagues will put your order in your car boot.

Stores, including those which DO NOT have parking outside, can still offer a safe Walk Up service. We have safety measures in place to keep you and our staff protected whilst you queue. Here’s how it works;

  • Once you’ve had confirmation your order is ready to collect, walk to store and head to the collection point.
  • When you’ve arrived, click on the link in your confirmation email to let our team know.
  • You’ll get a text when our colleague is preparing your order for collection.
  • Please remember to keep 2 metres away from our colleagues and other customers.

If the store already has stock of your item, you may be able to collect on the same day. If your store doesn’t have stock, we can get some in, but it may take a little longer. Don’t forget to wait for your ready to collect email and check store opening hours and whether the store can offer Drive Thru, Walk Up or both collection options before heading out.

We strongly recommend that you check whether you will be able to carry the item, or whether it will fit in your vehicle before placing your order.
