Compact Interchangeable Lens Digital Camera, Sony NEX-5

Sony introduces the world’s smallest and mirrorless interchangeable lens digital still camera, the NEX-5 which is perfect for point-and-shoot users. The first in the á cameras that features Sweep Panorama. It is an innovative design that has all the quality of a DSLR, but is 48 percent smaller and 49 percent lighter than Sony’s a230. Its smaller size can be attributed to its “mirrorless” construction which reduces the thickness of this camera to just about an inch at its slimmest point apart from the grip and mount portions. NEX-5’s basic material is made from a magnesium alloy and is built around the 14.6 megapixel Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor to achieve high resolution and incredible details.

Its sensor, 60 percent larger than the sensor in micro four-thirds cameras, is the means to the outstanding image quality, tremendously low image noise and creative defocus background effects similar to other DSLR. NEX-5 has exactly the same resolution and frame rate as most broadcast and cable HDTV. It can record high-quality videos in 1080/60i AVCHD format, 1080/30p high definition in PC-friendly MP4 format and standard definition 480/30p in MP4 format.

NEX-5 also features an easy-to-use interface making its performance advantages easy to master. Camera settings as well as the images are displayed on its tiltable 3-inch (diagonal) wide-type Xtra Fine LCD™ display with TruBlack™ technology and 921k dot high resolution LCD.

Its interchangeable lenses are compatible with Sony's E-mount series ( a 16mm F2.8 wide angle prime lens (model number SEL16F28), an 18mm-55mm F3.5-5.6 standard zoom lens (model number SEL1855) and an 18mm-200mm F3.5-6.3 (model number SEL18200) high magnification zoom lens) which are smaller and lighter lenses designed in particular for compact interchangeable lens cameras.
