on 9/20/2012

Product Overview

Mini Marvel


Mini marvel.It's all the performance of a DSLR in about half the size and half the weight. Get a perfectly pocket-sized 16.1MP interchangeable lens camera made for capturing beautiful stills on the go at up to 10 frames per second. Record in Full HD 1080/60p or 24p video, take astonishing pictures in low-light with the large Exmor™ APS HD CMOS sensor or get beautiful panoramic shots in 2D or 3D. Put control at your fingertips with the highly responsive, conveniently tiltable 3.0" Live View touch screen LCD.

Bigger Sensor, Better Pictures


Get delightful details and exquisite enlargements. Thanks to the APS-C sensor size and Sony Exmor™ APS HD CMOS technology, you'll achieve high 16.1MP resolution with no penalty in low-light sensitivity or sensor noise.

Professional Class Shooting Speeds


Capture that game changing moment in sports or get the perfect baby photo. Shoot at up to 10 frames per second at full 16.1MP resolution with exposure and focus fixed at the first frame.

Photo Creativity Interface


The new Photo Creativity interface puts sophisticated controls within reach. Technical terms are now replaced with friendlier and more intuitive terms which allow you to easily create custom-styled digital photographs. You can also review changes in real time on the LCD and easily make adjustments.

Full HD Movie Mastery


Record Full HD 1920x1080 video in a variety of frame rates, from 60p for super smooth action to 24p for a more cinematic feel1. The NEX-5N utilizes the AVCHD™ codec, the industry standard for high quality HD video capture, as well as the MP4 codec that's easier to upload to the web due to its small file size.

Expect More From a Camera


Sony has always recognized that a digital camera could take pictures in ways that film cameras never dreamed of. That's why we've created new capabilities to take your photography further than ever. These include Sweep Panorama™mode in 2D and 3D, Auto HDR, Handheld Twilight and Anti Motion Blur modes.

The Creativity of Changing Lenses



The beauty of SLR photography is the ability to change lenses to match your shooting situation. Now Sony brings that beauty to a compact camera. The NEX-5N gives you a choice of dedicated E-mount lenses, plus a choice of 28 A-mount lenses via an adaptor, sold separately.
