For Images that Captivate
Sony’s renowned Exmor™ APS HD CMOS sensor with 16.1 megapixels* and BIONZ™ image processor combine to produce images of stunning beauty that never fail to impress. The sensor is the same size as found in larger high-end DSLR cameras, and is key to the camera’s ability to reproduce smooth tonal gradations and ultra-fine details.
Tilt the Screen for
NEX-5T is the camera for fantastic self-portraits thanks to its 3.0-type 921K-dot Xtra Fine LCD screen that tilts completely forward 180° and down approx. 50°.
Every Moment Captured with Faster Focusing Speed
Sony’s Fast Hybrid AF opens up a world of photography with lightning-quick response previously available only on larger, more expensive DSLR cameras. First, fast phase-detection AF quickly moves the lens to bring the subject into near focus after which highly precise contrast-detection AF finishes focusing. It all happens in the blink of an eye so you’re always assured of capturing every fleeting moment.
Count on NEX-5T to flawlessly capture any fast-breaking action. Thanks to Fast Hybrid AF, the camera automatically tracks moving subjects and maintains focus, keeping every shot in a high-speed sequence sharp and clear — the ideal way to capture kids at play, sports events or other dynamic scenes.
Quick Access to Controls for Supreme Ease-of-Use
NEX-5T’s touch screen makes it easy to keep moving subjects in focus. Just enable Tracking Focus, touch the subject you want to be focused and the camera locks onto it for beautiful results, even if you change the composition. The direct, intuitive operation ensures crisply focused images of unpredictable subjects.
Shoot Spectacular HD Movies
Whether shooting videos indoor or outdoor, capture life-like scenes and ultra-fine details with the 16.1MP Exmor™ APSC HD CMOS Sensor. NEX 5T supports a variety of movie formats including AVCHD Ver 2.0 at 60p/50p and 60i/50i as well as 24p/25p*.You can start shooting at the touch of a button in fully automatic mode or use P/A/S/M modes.
Compose Beautiful Photos with Auto Object Framing
This savvy function analyses portraits, close-ups or images of moving subjects, then crops them after you take the shot to produce photos with maximum appeal. Auto Object Framing not only turns ordinary photos into stunning compositions but also automatically recognises the scene, then cropping accordingly.
Confirm Focus Instantly with the Peaking Function
See at a glance whether your subject is in focus with the Peaking function. A highlight appears over the area of the composition that is in focus for instant confirmation. You can change the highlight colour and peaking sensitivity level.
Shoot Creative Photos with Picture Effects
Creativity comes easy with NEX-5T thanks to Picture Effect. 11 modes with 15 total effects—such as Partial Colour, Posterisation, Toy Camera, High Contrast Monochrome, HDR Painting and more—give you the means to transform everyday photos into impressive works of art.
Anti Motion Blur/Hand-held Twilight Modes
Anti Motion Blur mode is especially useful for decreasing blur caused by camera shake and subject movement, while Hand-held Twilight mode balances exposure between the main subject and background for pleasing night-time photos.
Clear Images with Low Noise Even in Dim Lighting
The advanced BIONZ image processing engine combines with the large image sensor—which collects more light—to produce clear images with less noise even in dark settings.
Relive Memories with TRILUMINOS™ Colour
NEX-5T supports Sony’s “TRILUMINOS Colour”, allowing you to view photos and movies in rich, natural colours on any TV equipped with a “TRILUMINOS Display”. The expanded colour gamut lets you immerse yourself once again in those unforgettably colourful moments, from the complex shades in a shimmering blue sky to the natural tones of a rosy complexion.
