Compact Power Zoom 16-50mm kit lens

Compact Power Zoom 16-50mm kit lens

MF Assist

MF Assist

Improve your accuracy during manual focusing by magnifying the scene 6.8x or 13.6x on the LCD screen and fine-tuning what you see.

Face Detection/Smile Shutter

Set the a5000 to recognize faces and smiles. Face Detection locates up to eight faces in a composition then adjusts exposure, white balance and other settings based on these faces. Smile Shutter - adjustable in three levels - automatically takes a shot when smiles in the scene are detected.

Beautifully composed self-portraits made easy

The a5000's tiltable LCD screen flips up 180º to make shooting self-portraits a snap. Include other people, experiment with interesting angles or shoot against famous landmarks. When you press the shutter, the camera does all the work.

Sweep Panorama

Just sweep the camera when shooting to capture spectacular panoramic landscapes that can be enjoyed on the LCD screen or a wide-screen TV.

One-touch remote and one-touch sharing

One-touch remote lets you use your smartphone or tablet as a viewfinder and remote control for a digital camera, and one-touch sharing lets you transfer your photos and videos from your camera. Either way, by installing PlayMemories Mobile app to your NFC-enabled Android smartphone or tablet, you can avoid complex set-up sequences and establish wireless connection simply by touching your device to the camera. You are now ready to control your camera from your smartphone to take a photo from a previously out-of-reach spot, or simply be in your own group shot, as well as transfer them instantly to your smartphone for sharing on SNS. No NFC? No problem. You can also pair the devices manually.

Low light situations not a problem
