Product Information

product description

The Sony NEX-5R takes pictures with the beauty and speed of a DSLR in a package the size of a family point-and-shoot.

The large sensor takes in more detail than ever, while interchangeable lenses and built-in Wi-Fi give you the flexibility to shoot and share your way. There’s even Full HD video capture for when a photo just won’t do, and a tilting screen to get you in the right position every time.

Measuring just 30.2mm when fully retracted, this SELP-1650 retractable zoom lens is super compact and easy to carry so you can quickly whip out your camera and spontaneously grab shots as they occur. It’s perfect for traveling and other scenarios that require a lightweight, compact camera and lens combo. It covers a 16mm to 50mm range (35mm equivalent = 24-75mm) for flexible shooting, and is equipped with one ED (extra-low dispersion) and four aspherical elements, resulting in a high-performance lens that is surprisingly compact.

Key benefits:

The NEX-5R comes with a huge, DSLR-sized APS-C sensor. This captures more light and more of the image coming into the lens reaches the sensor. The result is beautifully lit, pro-quality 16.1 megapixel shots.

With Wi-Fi built-in to the NEX-5R you can connect to devices like a smartphone, tablet and more. You can upload photos to Facebook right from your camera. Plus, you can download apps like a remote control that lets you shoot from your smartphone and see the pictures immediately.

A style control wheel lets you easily access common shooting modes, or your own custom settings.

Be sure to catch blink-and-you-miss them moments with new Hybrid Auto Focus technology to capture high-speed action. It locks into focus as fast as a DSLR and takes photos faster too, making it ideal for spontaneous shots.

Tilt the LCD screen up to 180 degrees to get the perfect angle, or self-portraits.

Direct your own movies in Full HD, professional looking video. It knows when you’re shooting in low light conditions and adjusts automatically to make the scene brighter. Plus you can quickly zoom in and out without losing focus.

Choose from a range of PlayMemories Camera Apps for the latest NEX camera. You can touch up a photo, then upload it to Facebook directly from your camera. There are plenty of apps to help you get creative just like on a smartphone.

You can automatically re-touch portraits by removing minor blemishes and wrinkles for beautiful faces – no PC needed.
