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.

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.

The main reason for choosing the A5000 was the large sensor and excellent handling of the camera in my hand.
The camera produces lovely rich photo's, the kit lens is more then adequate and covers a great range from 24mm wide angle to 75mm.
The flash works fine and is very useful to have built in, rather then a add on, the flipping LCD is adequate and has a shortcut for outdoors use which drastically increases the brightness, making life easier on sunny days, I do wish the LCD was bigger and a higher resolution.
Camera focuses nice and fast and there is no delay or lag in shutter to capture of your subjects.
All in all a excellent little camera that can go everywhere with you and capture DSLR quality images, also a bargain.

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.

After buying this camera about 2 weeks ago i still cannot believe the video and photo quality of this camera. It's 20.1 megapixel camera is outstanding. The camera is very easy to set up and the charging kit is small and compact. I rate this SONY camera a 4 out of 5 because it has incredible quality and the video is also amazing. I didnt give it 5 out of 5 for 2 reasons, it does not have a microphone jack so you do not have to use the built in microphone and also you cant add on an extra flash if you need to.

I bought this camera a few weeks ago. The main reasons for me for buying it were that it was DSLR, the size of the sensor, selfie function, low price and good reviews overall. (I would really have wanted to buy a6000 had it had an LCD screen with a selfie function, I'll probably do that also if such a feature is added to a later version of the camera.) I have found out that, as indicated by others, this camera takes really good photos and is very nicely priced as a DSLR. This said, it is not a perfect camera, not even close to it, hence the four stars. The wifi function works but could be more fluid. One needs to download a special software to sync to smartphone. Also, I found that one often needs a little help from the smartphone, the syncing does not always work entirely automatically. But it works pretty fast once a transfer gets going, and the application is free. While there is a function to upload straight to Facebook from the camera, I found the application, which again is free but has to be downloaded to the camera separately, a little clumsy, and found it way better to first sync to smartphone and then upload from there. The wifi to computer is niggly, it was not easy to make it work, and even then I found the USB mode to work more easily. I thought the free Sony PlayMemories application on a computer was really nice, enabling a good arrangement and easy view of photos, especially by date taken. As for handling, it takes a bit of time to get used to the control buttons on the camera, and it would in my view be better if the camera had a touchscreen, however, buttons are also acceptable in practice. The menu system however makes it a bit difficult to find differing items on the menu, and certainly one cannot normally do this fast in case something that one wants to capture comes up quickly.Read more ›

This is my first 'proper' camera, and so far I am really impressed. It has been so easy to take pictures that are so much better than i have been able to achieve in the past (I was using an iPhone so not surprising), but I have been blown away by how crisp and impressive my photos have been.

The camera has been very easy to navigate and explore. There are helpful hints and descriptions about each of the settings available. The auto settings seem very good, and the shooting modes seem to make it easy to explore each setting in turn before I attempt to go for the full manual settings.

I was a little worried that it may be difficult to get into, but I am happy to say that the camera is not intimidating at all, and I would recommend this camera wholeheartedly to anyone who, like me, is starting to get into photography, or just someone who wants a high class point and shoot.

Stylish, small and light, easy to use, great value for money, can't wait to master it!

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.
