Product Overview

DSLR quality. Wi-Fi convenience.

Shoot and share DSLR-quality photos online, straight from the camera. With built-in Wi-Fi®, the Alpha NEX-5R even lets you download camera apps for endless creative possibilities11. And the 16.1MP APS-C size sensor lets you shoot breathtaking stills with pro-grade defocused backgrounds. Get all this and more in a camera that's about half the size of a DSLR.

Go from snapshot to photograph.

The 16.1MP APS-C size HD image sensor is the same sensor format that Sony builds into their full-sized DSLR cameras. With 13 times the area of the typical point-and-shoot image sensor, Sony's APS-C sensor size delivers high resolution, high sensitivity and gorgeous, blurred backgrounds.

Fast Hybrid Autofocus.

The NEX-5R is as fast as the world you're trying to capture. Sony's advanced Fast Hybrid Autofocus combines two technologies for outstanding performance: Phase detection auto focus for quick response that is ideal when tracking fast-moving subjects and contrast-detection auto focus for added precision. It's a perfect match that delivers optimal auto focus for fast, precise focusing anywhere and everywhere.

Shoot Full HD movies.

Capture HD Movies in your choice of super-smooth 60p, standard 60i or cinematic 24p, all at Full HD 1920x1080 resolution. The AVCHD™ codec delivers stunning picture quality while the MP4 codec lets you compress to smaller files for easier upload to the web.

Wi-Fi sharing and downloadable apps.

Lose the cords and cables - the NEX-5R's Wi-Fi capability lets you transfer photos directly to smartphones and tablets with the PlayMemories Mobile™ app11. Wi-Fi capability allows for sharing, viewing and saving photos for expanded photo-shooting enjoyment.

180-degree tiltable LCD.

The Alpha NEX-5R lets you change your view with a tiltable 3.0" touchscreen LCD that flips up 180-degrees without sacrificing the compactness of the 5-series. See what you're shooting no matter where the camera is, from awkward angles to perfect self-portraits.

Dial in total control.

A perfectly designed control dial, Fn (function) button, and touch screen with touch shutter function lets you focus on the shot instead of the menus.
