Bigger Sensor. Better Pictures
Small it may be, but the NEX-5T takes pictures with the speed and precision of a DSLR. Image quality comes first with a large APS-C sensor delivering 16.1 megapixel shots and bright, clear images in low light. Shoot as you see with quick auto focus to capture those all-action, fast moving moments such as motorbikes down the home straight or swooping birds of prey. With NFC (Near Field Communication) and built-in Wi-Fi, linking up with your favourite devices is effortless. Connect to your NFC-equipped tablet with one touch to view pictures on a bigger screen and share them on Facebook or use your smartphone as a remote control for your camera. You can even download image-enhancing apps and use interchangeable lenses to make sure you get just the shot you want.
Big on Detail
When it comes to taking pro-quality shots, the bigger the sensor, the better the pictures. With the NEX-5T, you have an APS-C sensor that's the same size as those found in DSLR cameras. It captures more light than sensors in other interchangeable lens cameras (up to ISO 25600) with more of the image reaching the sensor. Combined with a BIONZ processor, the sensor gives life-like, pro-quality shots at up to 16.1 megapixels that are sharp and clear. You can also shoot pro-quality images at a high ISO level and reproduce them in large format without compromising quality.
Think Fast, Shoot Faster
Superbikes down the home straight? Buzzards divebombing? Be sure to catch those blink-and-you-miss-them moments with Hybrid Auto Focus. This clever technology combines Phase Detection AF, for a quick response when tracking fast-moving subjects, and Contrast Detection AF for extra precision. The result is a camera that locks into focus as fast as a DSLR and takes photos at up to 10 frames per second, making it ideal for spontaneous shots or high-speed action.
Connect with NFC One-Touch
All your kit can work together, without the hassle of cables. With NFC and built-in Wi-Fi to the NEX-5T, you can connect to your tablet, smartphone or other NFC-equipped device with just one touch. View all your photos instantly on a bigger screen or use your smartphone to control your camera. All without complicated settings or menus.
Explore Every Angle
Looking for a different point of view? A tiltable touchscreen LCD is fast, intuitive and lets you change settings and find the right mode quickly. Touch anywhere on the screen and the camera will focus automatically and take the shot. Also, because you can move it up to 180°, it's ideal for self-portraits and capturing those more challenging photos.
Shoot Pro-Quality HD Movies
Direct your own movies with High Definition recording for smooth, professional looking video. The large sensor knows when you're shooting in low light conditions and adjusts automatically to make the scene brighter. Plus you can quickly zoom in and out without losing focus for pro-quality clips.

Top Customer Reviews
Automatic options enable the snapshot amateur to produce excellent results without needing to delve into features in depth and a host of shooting options are available via on screen menus for the more exacting or professional photographer. On screen help menus offer the opportunity to become proficient on the fly rather than constantly consulting a printed manual.
The touch screen menus and a 180 degree pivot for the LCD screen (useful if you are into taking selfies) offer a more dextrous feel and the digital zoom adds significantly to the functionality.
It's suitable for the full range of users from the snapshot amateur to the semi professional. The former can choose to stick with automatic options that produce stunning images but there are a host of shooting options (and associated help) available at your fingertips via the touch-screen LCD to keep the more intense photographer happy.
This is a compact and lightweight item of kit, which makes it an ideal companion on a holiday as it doesn't take up a lot of space or make you feel as though you are carrying a ton of equipment.
Fantastic still shot capabilities combine with very high quality video so there is no need to double up on equipment if you like to take both media.
NOTE: The one essential item that is not included with the camera is any form of memory card. You will need to purchase one before you can truly start to experiment with the camera.Read more ›
The first thing that strikes you is the size - or lack thereof. It really is a small camera, even with the 16-50 power zoom attached. Partly it achieves this by not needing the mirrors and view finder that DSLRs use. Like most modern cameras, it's easy enough to pick up and shoot, but to get the best out of the camera it does pay to experiment with some of the settings which can be a fiddly and time consuming endeavour. However, one of the big pluses of this is the inclusion of apps - and indeed WiFi. Some of the apps you need to pay for, but others are free and very useful and fun to explore. Either way, picture quality is right up there with low to mid end DSLRs thanks to the 16 mega pixel sensor which gives a great dynamic range.
The auto focus is fast - and mostly accurate. It's not perfect but it's not bad. This is one of the few areas where it still compares less favourably with a DSLR but for many this will be offset by convenience. Sony also make note of some fast shooting capability for action shots - up to 10 frames per second which is faster than many mid to low end DSLRs. However, all is not quite as it seems because buffering limitations will mean that while you can do this for a very short while, after about two or three seconds, it runs out of puff as it has to buffer the images.Read more ›
