Maximum Details Anytime, Anywhere
Capture every gorgeous detail with Sony‘s 20.1-megapixel Exmor™ APS HD CMOS sensor, which produces attractive defocusing effects thanks to its large dimensions.
Compelling Realism In Every Frame
Sony‘s BIONZ X™ image processing engine faithfully reproduces textures and details in real time, as seen by the naked eye, via extra high-speed processing capabilities. It enables more natural details, more realistic images, richer tonal gradations and lower noise whether you shoot still images or movies.
Share Images With One Touch
Share photos and MP4 movies in an instant by simply touching the camera to your friend‘s Android™ smartphone or tablet1. This remarkably convenient wireless feature is made possible by built-in Wi-Fi and NFC™ (Near Field Communication) technology that also works with preinstalled Smart Remote Control Embedded2 to enable remote control of your camera from the smartphone or tablet.
1. Requires installation of the latest free downloadable PlayMemories Mobile app (www.sony.net/pmm/).
2. If the mobile device is not compatible with NFC, the camera can still connect via Wi-Fi.
A Flash Of Brilliance
When you need a little extra burst of light, the built-in pop-up flash (GN4; ISO 100·m) does the trick. Combined with the a5000‘s maximum sensitivity of ISO 16000, the flash ensures lovely photos in dimly lit interiors or at night. Various flash modes can be used to add appealing catch lights to portraits, convey a sense of motion, etc.
Low Noise Image In Low Light Condition ( Sensor Technology )
Large sensor dimensions raise sensitivity to settings as high as ISO 16000, allowing you to naturally capture the mood of dimly lit scenes without using a flash. You can also team high sensitivity settings with fast shutter speeds to clearly freeze fast-moving action. Advanced noise reduction keeps noise to a bare minimum while maintaining maximum detail.
Full HD Movie Shooting
Simply press the MOVIE button to start recording a Full HD movie in the AVCHD format. You can choose a fast 60i/50i* setting for super-smooth results or a slower 24p/25p* setting to recreate the look of traditional cinema. Fast autofocusing ensures great results.
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.
13 Picture Effects
Convert everyday scenes into works of art with Picture Effect. The camera includes 13 modes (including Soft High-key, Miniature and Pop Color) that can be applied to photos or movies, giving you the means to vastly expand your artistic repertoire. The ability to view effects in real-time on the LCD screen* before the shot lets you experiment with different looks until you are satisfied with the result.
Auto Object Framing
Give your photos a professional look 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. Thanks to Sony’s By Pixel Super Resolution Technology and high-resolution Exmor sensor, images can be radically cropped without marked loss of image quality.
