Product Info

DSLR quality. Wi-Fi convenience.

The ILCE-5000 includes refined capabilities in a pocket-able size that makes it is easy to get beautiful pictures almost anywhere. Features include exceptional image quality from the large APS-C image sensor, fast focusing thanks to a brand new BIONZ® X processor and interchangeable lens capability. NFC (Near Field Communication) enables single touch image sharing with compatible mobile devices or direct connection with Android™ and iOS devices via Wi-Fi®.

Go From Snapshot to Photograph

The same sensor format that Sony builds into the full-sized Alpha DSLRs gives the ILCE-5000 13 times the area of the typical point-and-shoot image sensor. APS-C sensor size delivers an exceptional combination of high resolution, high sensitivity and gorgeous, blurred backgrounds to give even simple shots an artistic touch.

180-degree Tiltable Touch LCD

Change your view with a tiltable LCD touchscreen that flips up 180-degrees without sacrificing compactness. See what you're shooting no matter where the camera is to take stunning self-portraits, perfectly framed low angle shots, and incredibly precise compose pictures.

Built-in Pop-up Flash

Perfect when an extra burst of light is needed to get the shot, the pop-up flash combined with high ISO sensitivity makes shooting in just about any challenging lighting situation a breeze.

Shoot Full HD Movies

Capture HD Movies in your choice of standard 60i or cinematic 24p frames per second, all at Full HD 1920x1080 resolution. The AVCHD™ codec delivers stunning Blu-ray™ picture quality while the PC-friendly MP4 codec lets you compress to smaller 1080/30p files for easier upload to the Internet.

Instantly Connect to Smartphones and Tablets

Lose the cords and cables – the ILCE-5000's Wi-Fi NFC capability lets you instantly connect to smartphones and tablets. Simply download the free PlayMemories Mobile™ App, touch it to your Android™ smartphone or tablet, and create a connection that lets you transfer photos, remotely control the camera's shutter release, and instantly receive the captured image via Wi-Fi.
