Sony NEX5TL/B 16.1-megapixel Digital Camera with 16-50mm Lens

Shoot and share DSLR–quality photos online, straight from the camera.
With built–in Wi–Fi® and NFC, creative composition and sharing possibilities are endless. The 16.1MP APS–C sensor delivers breathtaking stills and focuses with incredible speed and DSLR–grade precision. All this and more in a camera that´s about half the size of a DSLR.


16.1 MP APS–C size HD image sensor
The same sensor format that Sony builds into the full–sized α 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, precise focusing in any scene

Full HD Movies1 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.1 AVCHD™ codec delivers stunning picture quality. MP4 codec offers smaller files for easier upload to the web.

Simple connectivity to smartphones via Wi–Fi® or NFC
Connectivity with smartphones for One–touch sharing/One–touch remote has been simplified with Wi–Fi®/NFC control. In addition to Wi–Fi support for connecting to smartphones, the NEX–5T also supports NFC (near field communication) providing "touch connection" convenience when transferring images to Android™ smartphones and tablets. Users need only touch devices to connect; no complex set–up is required. Moreover, when using Smart Remote Control – a feature that allows shutter release to be controlled by a smartphone – connection between the NEX–5T and the smartphone can be established by simply touching devices.

PlayMemories Camera Apps
Personalize your camera by adding new features of your choice with PlayMemories Camera Apps. Find apps to fit your shooting style from portraits, detailed close–ups, sports, time lapse, motion shot and much more. Use apps that shoot, share and save photos using Wi–Fi that make it easy to control and view your camera from smartphone, and post photos directly to Facebook or backup images to the cloud without connecting to a computer.11

180–degree tilt–able 3.0" Touch LCD
The NEX–5T is equipped with a tilt–able LCD screen that flips up 180–degrees without sacrificing the compactness for which the 5–series is renowned for. 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.

Picture Effect mode
There are 11 types (15 variations) of Picture Effects to choose from: Posterization (Color, B/W), Pop Color, Retro Photo, Partial Color (R,G,B,Y), High Contrast Mono, Toy Camera, Soft High–key, Soft Focus, HDR Painting, Rich–tone Mono, Miniature. Each is unique and each give you a new and exciting way to make your images and videos pop.

Up to ISO 25600 sensitivity with advanced noise reduction

Combines the best highlight detail from one shot, the best mid–tones from a second and the best shadow detail from a third for one incredible shot (up to 6 EV stops). Captures in a split second. (Recommended for still subjects.)

Face Detection/ Registration technology
The camera can automatically detect and register 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
