The black Sony Alpha NEX-5T Mirrorless Digital Camera with 16-50mm Lens is a versatile and compact mirrorless camera that features a 16.1 megapixel APS-C-sized Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor and BIONZ image processor to produce high resolution still images and full HD 1080i/p video in multiple frame rates with marked low-light quality and sensitivity to ISO 25600. The image processor also contributes greatly to minimizing overall noise levels and also affords a wealth of speed throughout the camera for recording up to 10 fps in Speed Priority Continuous mode.
This imaging performance is greatly benefited by the inclusion of a Fast Hybrid AF system that combines the best assets of both phase- and contrast-detection focusing methods for focus performance that is equally fast and precise. The phase-detection method is ideal for quickly acquiring focus and tracking moving subjects while the contrast-detection method ensures critical sharpness and detail.
To support live view monitoring, image playback, and menu navigation, a 3.0" 921.6k-dot touchscreen LCD monitor is integrated into the NEX-5T and utilizes a tilting design to better serve working from both high and low viewing angles. The touchscreen interface helps to more easily facilitate working with an intuitive menu structure to access a host of camera features, including Picture Effects, Auto HDR mode, Auto Object Framing, and for connecting to mobile devices using built-in Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity.
Included with the camera body is a black Sony E-mount 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Retractable Zoom Lens, which provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24-75mm. This range of perspectives is well-suited to everyday shooting and is further enhanced through the inclusion of Optical SteadyShot image stabilization for minimizing the appearance of camera shake. Power Zoom technology allows for electronic control over the zoom position and the inclusion of one extra-low dispersion element and four aspherical elements helps to reduce chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range as well as contribute to high overall sharpness.
