Sony Introduces Ultra-Portable NEX-5T Compact System Camera with Wi-Fi®, NFC and Fast Hybrid AF SAN DIEGO, August 27, 2013 -- The versatile new Sony α NEX-5T compact system camera combines a stylish, ultra-compact design and the creative capabilities of interchangeable lenses with large-sensor image quality, speedy Auto Focus (AF) and the convenience of NFC (Near Field Communication) one-touch for easier Wi-Fi connectivity. Inside the new camera is a large, high-resolution 16.1 effective megapixel Exmor™ APS HD CMOS sensor - identical in size to the sensors found in traditional DSLR cameras. The large sensor takes in more light during image capture, allowing for richly detailed DSLR-quality still images and full HD videos. The new NEX-5T camera will come in a kit with the sharp, compact SELP1650 motorized zoom lens, which measures only about 1.2 inches thick when fully retracted. The lens contains built-in Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization for clearer handheld images and has a smooth power zoom dial that is particularly useful during video shooting. NFC and Wi-Fi Convenience The new α NEX-5T camera is the first Sony interchangeable lens camera to feature NFC, giving the extra convenience of one-touch wireless connectivity with compatible Android smartphones and tablets1. A connection is activated automatically as soon as the mobile device touches the camera, allowing for immediate image and video2 sharing between devices. Content is then safely stored on the connected device and can be shared via social media and other common applications. he NEX-5T utilizes Wi-Fi to send a live image preview to a wirelessly connected camera or tablet, allowing it to act as a remote viewfinder, adjust common photographic settings and release the shutter button. It's a unique, fun feature that can be used for framing and shooting group portraits that include the photographer, and can be activated using either NFC one-touch or Wi-Fi connectivity. Fast Hybrid AF In line with last year's NEX-5R model, the new NEX-5T camera also features Fast Hybrid AF auto focus technology, which combines phase-detection and contrast-detection methods to ensure speedy, accurate autofocus in any shooting situation. The intuitive focusing system uses 99 phase-detection AF points arrayed on the image sensor to detect a subject's distance and quickly lock focus. Then, contrast-detection AF confirms extremely fine, precise details. There are 15 apps currently available, including "Direct Upload," which allows photos to be uploaded directly to Facebook™ and now Flickr as well, with support for additional services scheduled for the future. Other fun applications include "Motion-shot," which can combine several different shots from an action-series into one creative photo, "Time-Lapse," which takes several photos over a series of time and stitches them together to create time-lapse photography, and several other creative and teaching tools. Design and Control The new NEX-5T camera features a fully programmable control dial and Fn (function) button - a versatile combination for photographers accustomed to the flexibility and direct control of a DSLR camera. The camera's intuitive touch-screen LCD can flip downwards for high-angle shots over crowds, or upwards up to 180 degrees for easy arm's length self-portraits. It also has a touch-shutter function for added convenience. Pricing and Availability The NEX-5T compact system camera will be offered in silver, black and white for about $700 in a kit with a compact, versatile 16-50mm motorized zoom lens (model SELP1650). It will be available for purchase in early September. The new camera is compatible with Sony's ever-growing assortment of E-mount interchangeable lenses. In total, 16 different lenses are now available including several premium models from Carl Zeiss ™ and G™ Lenses. The new LCS-EBA body jacket, LCS-EMJ carrying case and BC-QM1 battery charger will be available this September for about $25, $40 and $60, respectively. The new camera and all compatible accessories will be available at Sony retail stores (www.store.sony.com) and other authorized dealers nationwide.
