Features

20.1 MP Exmor® HD APS sensor

Get incredible detail and gorgeous enlargements. Thanks to the large 20.1 megapixel APS-C sensor size and Sony Exmor® APS HD CMOS technology, the camera achieves high resolution and DSLR quality images with no penalty in low-light sensitivity or sensor noise.

BIONZ X™ image processing engine

Expect superlative results with Sony’s latest processing engine: truer color rendering, better noise reduction, and faster burst mode shooting.

Low light situations not a problem

Built-in pop-up flash in a compact camera body is perfect when an extra burst of light is needed to get the shot. Combine with high ISO sensitivity - from 100 to 16000 ISO - to enable shooting in just about any setting.

Full HD 1080/60i/24p or 1080/30p MP4 movies

Record stunning high quality Full HD video in either 60i or 24p frames per second. Records in your choice of 60i/24p Blu-Ray quality AVCHD™ format, or in PC-friendly 1080/30p MP4 format.

Convenient Power zoom lens w/ motor zoom lever and body control

A convenient zoom lever on the body of the camera allows for effortless one-handed operation and smooth zooming even when shooting self-portraits, bringing compact camera convenience to the realm of interchangeable-lens models.

Face Detection/Smile Shutter

Set the α5000 to recognize faces and smiles. Face Detection locates up to eight faces in a composition then adjusts exposure, white balance and other settings based on these faces. Smile Shutter — adjustable in three levels — automatically takes a shot when smiles in the scene are detected.

Up to 420 Shots of battery life

Take up to 420 shots on a single charge with Sony® lithium ion Stamina™ battery power. Sony's InfoLITHIUM® battery system enables you to see the percent of power remaining, so you can keep shooting in confidence.

Compact Power Zoom 16-50mm kit lens

For the ultimate in portability, the α5000 includes the collapsible 16-50mm power zoom (SELP1650) as the kit lens. Ideal when traveling or anytime a compact, lightweight camera-combo is desired.

Auto Object Framing fills the frame with your subject

Give your photos a professional look with Auto Object Framing. Featuring advancements like exceptional two-person portrait capability along with Face Detection and Tracking Focus, Auto Object Framing not only turns ordinary photos into stunning compositions but does so automatically recognizing the scene then cropping accordingly.

Beautifully composed self-portraits made easy

The α5000’s tiltable LCD screen flips up 180° to make shooting self-portraits a snap. Include other people, experiment with interesting angles or shoot against famous landmarks. When you press the shutter, the camera does all the work.

Superior Auto and Photo Creativity

The Superior Auto mode makes great photography as simple as pointing and shooting. It also lets you enjoy creative photographic expression by entering the Photo Creativity mode — for easy adjustment of Background Defocus, Brightness, Color and Vividness — or adding Picture Effect modes while viewing the results in real-time on the LCD screen.

Scene Selection

Optimize image quality for the type of scene you shoot by choosing one of nine Scene Selection modes, including Portrait, Sports Action and Macro.

Creative Style

Bring out the character of your scene by choosing the appropriate mode (Standard, Vivid, Portrait, Landscape, Sunset, Black & White or Sepia).

P/A/S/M modes

These four modes make it easy to enjoy the creative freedom of manual shooting while prioritizing what is most important for the shot.

Hand-held Twilight (Scene Selection)

Create beautiful hand-held evening shots with minimal blur and noise by activating this advanced Scene Selection mode.

Anti-Motion Blur

This feature enhances clarity by reducing subject-motion blur, which tends to occur in dimly lit scenes or when shooting at telephoto settings.

Peaking function

This handy feature colorizes the most sharply focused areas of your image so you can quickly confirm whether manual focusing needs adjustment.

DRO (D-Range Optimizer)

DRO is another way to tame contrasty scenes for more natural looking images. Unlike Auto HDR, it can be used when photographing moving subjects, even during high-speed continuous shooting.

Sweep Panorama

Just sweep the camera when shooting to capture spectacular panoramic landscapes that can be enjoyed on the LCD screen or a wide-screen TV.

MF Assist

Improve your accuracy during manual focusing by magnifying the scene 6.8x or 13.6x on the LCD screen and fine-tuning what you see.
