Image quality


The Sony a5000 Mirrorless Camera is equipped with a 20.1 megapixel Exmor APS-C 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 processor engine that realistically recreates textures and colours. 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.

Compact

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 mirrorless digital cameras available.

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

Simple 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.

There's a 3” TFT LCD screen that can be tilted through 1800C. 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.

Creative features

The cameracomes 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 images. Simply place the camera against an NFC smartphone or tablet to establish connection, then instantly share photographs and 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.
