The NEX-5R might be small, but it takes pictures like a DSLR and with the speed of a DSLR too. Image quality comes first and the NEX-5R has a large APS-C sensor delivering 16.1 megapixel shots and bright clear images in low light. What’s more, with built-in Wi-Fi you can connect to other devices like a smartphone or tablet, share your pictures on Facebook or use your smartphone as a remote control for your camera. You can even download image-enhancing apps that will give you even more ways to get the shot you want.

Size Matters

Great pictures are built with light, so when it comes to picture quality and sensor size, bigger really is better. The NEX-5R comes with a huge, DSLR-sized APS-C sensor. This captures more light than other interchangeable lens cameras and more of the image entering the lens reaches the sensor. The result -- beautifully lit, pro-quality shots at up to 16.1 megapixels.

Think Fast, Shoot Faster

Be sure to catch blink-and-you-miss them moments with Hybrid Auto Focus technology to capture high-speed action. It locks into focus as fast as a DSLR and takes photos faster too, making it ideal for spontaneous shots, or for high-speed action. So when you're in the velodrome and the bikes are zooming past, you can be sure your photos will be sharp and crisp.

Get More from Your Camera with Wi-Fi Connectivity

With Wi-Fi built-in to the NEX-5R you can instantly upload your photos to Facebook or PlayMemories Online straight from your camera. You have access to a world of apps which give you more ways to get creative with PlayMemories Camera. Find everything from apps for re-touching photos, to a remote control app that lets you use your smartphone to take shots at a distance.

PlayMemories Camera

With 4 apps as standard, and more being added all the time, PlayMemories Camera helps you unlock the potential of such a powerful camera.

For maximum creativity, Picture Effect+ lets you modify images by changing colours, adding textures or including special visual effects – all without a PC. Transform simple shots into works of art using modes such as Toy Camera or Partial Colour. You can even adjust the level of some effects or combine multiple effects for total creative control.

If you want to take group shots, the Smart Remote app removes the hassle of the self-timer - just connect to your smartphone and you can preview the image on your phone screen while using it as a remote to control the shutter. The photo then appears on the phone's screen, so if your friends had their eyes closed you can take another shot right away without having to run back to the camera and set it up again.

Ever had a perfect picture ruined by a passer-by walking in to the edge of the shot, or an awkwardly placed signpost that you can't miss? With the Photo Retouch app you can resize, reframe and tweak the levels, colour and brightness until you get your photos 'just right'

It is surprising that no one write a review on this camera.

I have bought SONY NEX 5RY (which comes with 55-210 lens in addition to 16-50 one) two months ago and have used for my holiday in Spain in February.

Well, why mirror-less?
This SONY NEX 5R is small enough that you can carry in one of your hand with ease. The quality you can get from the camera is very sharp, you won't get disappointed.

I am not sure when SONY will upgrade NEX 5 series, but SONY will struggle to put the any better options into the series (other than increase the sensor size or pixels).
I love my choice on this camera and it is part of my body wherever I go.

Oh, the zoom lens (55-210) comes with the bundle is working in beauty, and I was able to take some of the best pictures of my daughter in her 13 years life.
I am happy to recommend this camera whoever look for the mirrorless one.

Why do people keep buying DSLRs? I'll never understand. This camera delivers the best images I've seen from any sub-$1000 camera. Smashes Canon 7Ds and etc. out of the water. Also great in low-light situations.

(I have had various Canon cameras, SRL and DSRLS, since 1964.) However, the image produced by the Sony is very difficult to see, particularly in bright sunlight. I got tired of 'guessing' and bought the appropriate viewfinder which improved the facility a lot by, my goodness, it is expensive and delicate. I am sure it could be made much cheaper but Sony are probably not sure how many will be sold.

This camera delivers great photos, but to me it's a bit too chunky even when using compact lens 16-50mm. If you need something that fits your pockets you will need a big pocket to be able to carry this one. This was one of the reasons I've decided to return it and gone for Sony RX100, and I can admit that it fulfils all my needs, it has bigger zoom, great lens, very small size and great image quality. Nex5 will be a bit better due to its bigger sensor but I truly couldn't see a difference for use.
Hence I can only 4 stars, as the image quality is really superb but the size is still too big for my needs.

I'm still learning how to use it but it has inspired me to take photography more seriously for the first time in years. I could never get to grips with cumbersome DSLRs but this has a really nice feel to it and the lens aren't overly expensive for what you get. I'm not techy when it comes to cameras but when I show it to camera fans they love it. I added the Electronic viewfinder and this makes it complete with touch screen or viewfinder options. I also bought the Macro lens which is great value.

Bought this camera as a replacement to my DSLR. Its incredibly small and takes just as good photos. I thought the lack of a viewfinder would bother me, but it really doesn't.

Looks kinda goofy but is really good to use! It is small enough to carry around, but produces very sharp pictures. For it's very compact size, it is very easy to maneuver the different functionalities, and the user interface is very straightforward. The different filters are also very good.
It does NOT come with an external charger or memory card of any kind, so don't forget to buy those

The lens performance is generally poor with severe distortion and vignetting. It relies on electronic correction within the camera to correct jpg images. This correction is not as good as that available from DxO for photos taken at wider angles. Since most photos taken using auto controls will use a much smaller aperture, then general snaps processed using the camera will be acceptable. Shots taken at wide angle plus wide aperture (16mm f3.5) can be terrible - camera does not seem able to correct properly and neither can DxO. Do not use RAW with this camera unless your software is capable of optical correction. (e.g. do not use RAW with Apple Aperture software)
