Sony a5000

Sony’s a5000 interchangeable lens camera is the company’s smallest and lightest interchangeable lens camera to date. A 20MP APS-C picture sensor and a handy built-in flash are both included in its small and lightweight design.

The LCD can be tilted 180 degrees, making it excellent for taking self-portraits, and there is a zoom lever on the body of the camera, making it easy to use with one hand.

There is also a new clever Auto Object Framing option, which assists the user in composing more visually attractive shots when taking pictures. With built-in wireless sharing and a one-touch NFC connection, you can submit photos and videos to Facebook and other social media sites immediately from the camera.
