The silver Sony Alpha A5000 Mirrorless Digital Camera is a
versatile and compact mirrorless camera that features a 20.1 megapixel
APS-C-sized Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor and BIONZ X image processor to
produce high-resolution still images and full HD movies with marked
low-light quality and sensitivity to ISO 16000. The image processor
contributes greatly to minimizing overall noise levels and also affords a
wealth of speed throughout the camera for recording up to 3.5 fps in
Speed Priority Continuous mode.
To support live view monitoring,
image playback, and menu navigation, a 3.0" 460.8k-dot LCD monitor is
integrated into the A5000 and utilizes a 180° tilting design to better
serve working from low viewing angles as well as in front of the camera.
The large screen and intuitive menu interface helps to easily access a
host of camera features, including Picture Effects, Auto HDR mode, Auto
Object Framing, and for connecting to mobile devices using built-in
wireless and NFC connectivity.
Included with the camera body is a
Sony E-mount 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Retractable Zoom Lens, which
provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24-75mm. This range of
perspectives is well-suited to everyday shooting and is further enhanced
through the inclusion of Optical SteadyShot image stabilization for
minimizing the appearance of camera shake. Power Zoom technology allows
for electronic control over the zoom position and the inclusion of one
extra-low dispersion element and four aspherical elements helps to
reduce chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range as well as
contribute to high overall sharpness.
