Size counts two ways with Sony NEX-5T camera

Sony has announced its latest addition to its interchangeable-lens digital camera range, the NEX-5T. The NEX-5T is NFC enabled and offers full HD video capture.

It’s the big sensor that means better pictures and this really is where size matters. The new NEX-5T from Sony offers pro-quality pictures and wireless freedom in a pocket-sized camera with interchangeable lenses.

Slipping snugly into a pocket or bag, it’s designed for photographers who want DSLR-style images and generous control options with less to carry.

Wi-Fi connects the NEX-5T with a smartphone, PC or TV for wireless transfer of photos or videos. It’s the first interchangeable lens E-mount camera from Sony with NFC, giving the convenience of One-touch wireless connection with Android smartphones and tablets for sharing and remote control of the camera. There’s no set-up needed touch a mobile device against the NEX-5T and a wireless connection’s made instantly. Embedded Smart Remote Control lets the user trigger shutter release from a smartphone.

Inside the NEX-5T is a generously-sized APS-C sensor with 16.1 effective megapixels that grabs more light than the small sensor in ordinary compact cameras. You’ll be rewarded by richly-detailed DSLR-quality stills and Full HD video, with ultra-low picture noise for crisper twilight shots and atmospheric interiors.

Advanced Fast Hybrid AF combines phase-detection autofocus to track fast-moving subjects with contrast-detection AF for absolute precision. It’s a winning combination that delivers accurate focusing in any scene.

Self-shot portraits are simple with the tiltable LCD screen that flips up to 180¬∞ for a comfortable view with the camera held at arm’s length. Auto Portrait Framing takes the guesswork out of good-looking selfies. There’s also a digital level gauge that makes it easy to keep horizons steady and true.

The NEX-5T offers extra flexibility with its dedicated control dial and assignable Fn button for instant recall of frequently-needed functions.

Co-ordinating Cases and Accessories

A range of optional accessories offers stylish protection for the camera. Exclusively designed in a range of colours to fit the NEX-5T and NEX-5R, the LCJ-EBA is a thin and light Body Jacket that also allows full use of the NFC function offered by the NEX-5T. The LCS-BBK Soft Carrying Case slips easily into a travel bag. The LCS-EMJ Soft Carrying Case features an expandable zipper section to accommodate different sizes of attached lens. The versatile BC-QM1 Battery Charger can quickly charge batteries for recent and Handycam models, and also can supply power to your smartphone via USB. The ACC-PFW1 Accessory Kit includes the PCK-LS1EM LCD Protect Sheet to keep fingerprints at bay, plus the VF-K405MP MC Protector (40.5mm diameter) and NP-FW50 Rechargeable Battery Pack.

The new NEX-5T interchangeable lens compact camera from Sony is currently available in South Africa from leading electronic retailers.
