      Product information
      The black Sony a5000 Compact System Camera with 16-50 mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Zoom Lens lets you discover professional image quality in a small camera that packs large capabilities. A compact system camera that's easy to use, you won't have a problem handling the Sony Alpha 5000. It's exceptionally lightweight and compact, making it great for travel and one of the lightest interchangeable-lens digital cameras available putting incredible photos and videos in the palm of your hand.

      A compact camera that's easy to use

      You won't have a problem handling the Sony a5000. It's exceptionally lightweight and compact, making it great for travel and one of the lightest interchangeable-lens digital cameras available.

      It's the ideal combination of heavyweight performance features and superb manageability for better mobile photography.

      Incredible photos and videos in the palm of your hand

      The a5000 is equipped with a 20.1 megapixel Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor that captures stunning details and allows you to creatively defocus areas of your images.

      It's been teamed with a fast-acting BIONZ X image processing engine that realistically recreates textures and colours in real time, so your photos look just the way you saw the scene with your eyes. With a sensitivity range of ISO 100 to 16000, you'll be able to shoot even darker scenes without using a flash, preserving tone and atmosphere.

      The MOVIE button is there to start off recording Full HD videos in AVHCD format. Select a 60i/50i (NTSC/PAL) frame rate for ultra-smooth movies, or record at the slower 24p/25p (NTSC/PAL) setting for a more traditional cinema-like look.

      Dolby Digital Stereo Creator delivers precision audio to match your high-quality movies.

      Better focusing and simpler shooting

      With fast autofocus you're assured of fantastic results, and the option is there to manually focus the camera if you prefer to take control yourself.

      The Sony a5000 Compact Camera also offers a 3” TFT LCD screen that can be tilted through 1800C, opening up a world of new photo options. Flip it up to fine-tune your compositions, taking high-angle shots more easily or achieving better shots from low positions for more dynamic photographs.

      It's also the ideal way to achieve perfectly-composed self-portraits, so you can show your friends and family where you were in the best way possible. With Clear Image Zoom you'll be able to keep things sharply focused while zooming, and any wrinkles or dullness are cleverly smoothed out with the Soft Skin Effect. Shoot easily with one hand for more convenient image capture.

      Get the right lens

      You're sure to achieve all manner of eye-catching results as the Sony DSLR includes a 16-50 mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS zoom lens. Shoot great close-ups or scenery with this versatile lens.

      There are also a wide range of interchangeable E-mount lenses available for different requirements. Whether you want a powerful zoom for larger or distant subjects, or a macro lens for extreme close-ups, there will be a lens to meet your requirements. A-mount lenses can be used by way of an adapter.

      Creative in-camera features

      The Sony a5000 Compact System Camera comes with a host of great features to make creative shooting and image editing more achievable and rewarding. Superior Auto and Intelligent Auto modes allow you to simply point and shoot to achieve great results.

      Elsewhere, Photo Creativity mode allows you to easily adjust Background Defocus, Brightness, Colour and Vividness. Add Picture Effects and observe them in real time, or use PlayMemories Camera Apps to download new editing and shooting features.

      One-touch photo sharing

      You won't need cables or other connections to share image with the a5000. Simply place the camera against an NFC smartphone or tablet to establish a WiFi connection, then instantly share photographs and MP4 videos as you please.

      There's a preinstalled Smart Remote Control that gives you control of the camera using a smartphone or tablet, drastically increasing your shooting options.

      With all this and much more, you can open up new photographic possibilities for yourself with the black Sony a5000 Compact System Camera with 16-50 mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Zoom Lens.
