World's smallest, lightest APS-C interchangeable lens camera*

With the a5000 you have manual controls to get beautiful defocusing effects in an ultra-compact, lightweight design. The ideal mix of form and function, it opens up numerous possibilities. High-quality images are assured, thanks to the large 20.1 effective megapixel Exmor APS HD CMOS image sensor and powerful BIONZ X image processor. A 180 tiltable LCD screen and zoom lever are perfect for self-portraits, while One touch NFC and Wi-Fi make sharing pictures on Facebook or Twitter - or via email - simple. And when you want to get creative, tools for image settings, adjustment, and effects, plus a range of PlayMemories Camera Apps, put you in control.

Image quality on a par with DSLR

Small it may be, but the a5000 offers big camera performance. A large 20.1 effective megapixel Exmor APS HD CMOS image sensor captures more light than many other sensors and gives detailed images with rich tonal gradation. The BIONZ X image processing engine enhances detail, reduces noise and gives hyper-real images while ISO settings between 100 and 16,000 ensure great versatility and performance, even at dusk or night time.

Self-portraits made simple

Shooting a selfie? A tiltable LCD screen flips up 180 so you can easily compose the shot and get all your friends in the frame. There's a built-in zoom lever that's easy to operate one-handed and a grip that's designed for comfortable finger placement, however you hold the camera. There's even a Soft Skin Effect to make sure your subjects are looking their best.

Enjoy total creative freedom

Press the Photo Creativity button and make the shot your own. Add picture effects, control background defocus, colour, brightness and vividness. You can even fine-tune your images - viewing many of the adjustments on the LCD monitor before you commit to the shot. Want more fun and functionality? Customise your camera with our PlayMemories Camera Apps.

Easy sharing with One touch NFC and Wi-Fi

Shoot, touch and share - in only a moment. With built-in Wi-Fi and One touch NFC, all it takes is a quick touch to wirelessly transfer photos and videos directly to a smartphone or tablet. You can even turn your phone into a remote control to zoom, focus and take photos with the free PlayMemories Mobile application for your smartphone. If you want to see the images on your TV, simply transfer them wirelessly.

Expand your options with a pop-up flash

Despite its compact size, the a5000 still has room for a built-in pop-up flash unit to enhance your shooting opportunities. As well as helping to avoid camera-shake blur caused by slow shutter speeds when shooting dimly-lit scenes, it lets you capture striking night shots with the main subject and background nicely exposed.

The A5000, in terms of features and image quality is probably unsurpassed at this price point. It offers a large APC sized sensor in a very small package providing a high resolution, low noise solution that can fit in your jacket pocket.

The tilt screen is excellent for taking one’s own picture (I’m too old for the word selfie) and the A5000 feels good in hand despite its compact size. Focusing performs well for static/slow subjects and accuracy is very good even in low light. Usual mirrorless perks such as face recognition help matters even further. A nice little bonus is that the pop-up flash can be manipulated to bounce of the ceiling.

Digging deep into the camera's menus reveals many layers of function which I suspect some will find superfluous. While the A5000 is hardly difficult to use, it is pretty unsatisfying. Those who like to shoot manual and adjust for changing light won’t enjoy the A5000’s workflow and it is in this regard the A5000 feels much more like an electronic device than a camera. Some of the settings also feel a little dumbed down; even features that would only appeal to those who know what they are doing. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for clever design that empowers people to get better results but that is not what is going on with the A5000.

The battery charges within the unit itself meaning you won’t be able to use the camera while charging a spare and you don't need to pack a charger. The kit lens is compact and has a useful focal range. It also has good ergonomics for video as well as a very quiet focus motor. Unfortunately, it’s also very soft with average contrast and will ultimately have to be upgraded if you want to make the best of the A5000’s excellent sensor.

This is my first Compact System Camera and I am extremely pleased with the Sony a5000 (white). I bought it together with the Zenness Protective PU Leather case (Coffee) and cannot fault either. I only run Linux (Mint 17). I've not "dug deep" but have noticed that you cannot transfer photos directly from the camera using the USB cable. Don't know about SD socket as my old laptop doesn't have that luxury! I do have a Flickr account so I can upload photos straight from the camera with the free "direct upload" app from Sony. You then have the opportunity to share / download them as required. The camera is quite small, all lens really, it's an outstanding product and I've only scraped the surface with regards it's possibilities. Update, if you put the camera on USB Mode MTP you can import directly to your linux "picture" folder. Chuffed.

I love this camera. I'm studying abroad and it was the perfect camera for all of trips around Europe. It's small enough to fit in my purse but strong enough to take awesome pictures of the beautiful sights I've been seeing. I also love the wifi features that allows me to upload photos to my smartphone and to my computer! It's awesome and totally worth the money.

Love this camera,i just wanted a camera to depend on for taking pictures on my vacation as opposed to just using my iphone.my only gripe would be the selfie pictures tends to focus on one person instead of giving a clear photo.But mybe thats cause theres some settings that i havent accustomed to yet.Low light pictures are amazing! Better than taking pictures with ANY iphone.battery power is superb as have been said by many people.

I bought this camera as I was looking for a decent, high quality, raw camera with a wide lens without going for a DSLR. The flip around screen is great, the image quality for the price point is impressive. I like that there's the option to go full manual, focus & exposure wise or just use one of the intelligent presets if you're in a hurry.

My 1 star mark-down is because when the lens is fully wide, there is a fair amount of vignetting, more than I'd like. However all of the benefits outweigh this for me.

This is a very sexy camera indeed and a bargain considering it has most of the features of its next model (the A6000). The only omissions here are a few buttons (not really necessary for most jobs) and the hot shoe for other flashes. It's light but pretty robust and the monitor screen that swivels up is a great feature. Perfect for recording video too.

This has been my first 'real' camera, and in that context I cannot have wished for much better: the camera's only real fault is its lack of a manual viewfinder - even the best LCD screens struggle to be of use in strong sunlight. But as middle-ground cameras go, this is excellent, and has done all I've wished.

What a great little camera! Its compact, light and easy to use. Takes good quality pictures. Not brilliant in dark settings and flash makes pictures too bright but for this price its still good enough. I bought it to take pictures of my baby and it does the job brilliantly. If you are taking it on the tour or holiday do buy a spare battery.
