Get a sharper view: Get pro-quality shots with a large, DSLR sized APS-C sensor that takes high quality 16.1 megapixel photos.

Don’t miss the moment: The NEX-5R calculates direction and movement automatically so you can focus and shoot faster.

Capture high speed sequences: Maintain focus as you track a subject, for high speed shooting at up to 10 frames per second.

See, touch, shoot: With a LCD touchscreen, just tap the screen where you want to focus and it automatically locks on and takes a photo.

Get the right angle: Tilt the LCD screen up to 180 degrees to get the perfect angle, or self-portraits.

Do more with your photos: With Wi-Fi you can download picture-enhancing apps or send your photos to your smartphone, tablet or other device.

Find the right setting fast: A style control wheel lets you easily access common shooting modes, or your own custom settings.

Power behind your photos: A powerful BIONZ processor ensures clear, detailed, low-noise images and quick, responsive shooting.

See more in low light: The large APS-C sensor works with a powerful BIONZ processor to deliver up to ISO25600 for clear low-light shots.

Connect to all your devices: The NEX-5R is DLNA certified, so it connects seamlessly to smartphones, TVs, laptops or any device with DLNA.

Make the picture your own: With different picture modes you can give your photos a poster effect, soft focus, a miniature look and more.

Faces that smile: You can automatically re-touch portraits by removing minor blemishes and wrinkles for beautiful faces.

A clearer view at speed: A high-speed burst of six frames creates a single low-noise image to minimise blur.

Make a HD connection: Send and HD signal to your TV, laptop or other HDMI® enabled device for High Definition viewing.
