Sony NEX-5 and NEX-3 Digital Camera

NEX-5 and NEX-3 Features

Change up to interchangeable-lens imaging

Once upon a time, you had to choose between true photographic quality, and carefree shooting spontaneity. It was one or the other. But things have changed. Now the revolutionary new Sony α NEX-5 and NEX-3 deliver interchangeable-lens creative freedom and SLRclass image quality in a stylish, ultracompact package you can carry anywhere. Combining the thoroughbred heritage of the Sony α digital SLR system with outstanding operating ease and Full HD movie recording, the NEX-5 and NEX-3 have landed. 

The NEX-5 and NEX-3 are equipped with a powerful new 14.2-megapixel* Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor, specially tuned to deliver uncompromising still-photo and movie image quality. Equal in surface area and performance to the large, APS-C image sensors used in Sony's acclaimed α system digital SLR cameras, it offers exceptionally rich tonal gradation and true-to-life color. Proprietary Sony processing technologies are also incorporated directly into the sensor, assuring clean, low-noise signal output and ultra high-speed data transfer.
The NEX-5 and NEX3's new BIONZ engine inherits the power of Sony α system technology, assuring beautiful, SLR-class image quality and color. The lightning-quick engine also handles the advanced processing needed for fast, responsive contrast-detection AF, Sweep Panorama image stitching, Hand-held Twilight image alignment, and other high-performance camera features.

Exmor + BIONZ noise-reduction for enhanced low-light shooting capability

Thanks to the SLR-class noise-reduction capability of the Exmor CMOS sensor and BIONZ image processing engine, low-light shooting capabilities are outstanding. Both cameras boast an ISO AUTO light sensitivity range of ISO200~1600, and offer user-selectable settings up to ISO12800. So you can enjoy the freedom of shooting without a tripod or flash, and capture more colorful and beautiful images in low light. Settings for long-exposure noise reduction (ON/OFF) and high-ISO noise reduction (Auto/Weak) can be accessed via the Setup menu.

Revolutionary new design for ultracompact SLR-class imaging

Sony took a radical new approach to camera design with the NEX-5 and NEX-3, eliminating the mirror box and viewfinder optics found in conventional SLRs. The result is an interchangeable lens camera that offers a class-leading combination of low weight, compact size, and SLR-class photographic performance. In fact, with their low standalone weight and trim waistline – which on the NEX-5 is only 24.2mm – these are two of the lightest, most compact interchangeable lens cameras in the world today.*

iAuto mode convenience, plus Background Defocus Control

In iAuto mode, the NEX-5 and NEX-3 automatically apply exposure values and Scene Selection modes that are optimized to suit each scene. What's more, they combine this full-auto convenience with a Background Defocus Control function that lets you enjoy one of the biggest creative advantages of interchangeable lens photography – the ability to defocus the background to make your main subject stand out from the scene. Just press and rotate the control wheel to set the level of background defocusing you want – it's easy and intuitive because you can confirm the level of defocusing on the LCD monitor in real-time.
Defocusing effect varies according to lens, subject/background distance and other factors; not supported when using A-mount lenses.

True HD movie recording with interchangeable-lens flexibility

The NEX-5 and NEX-3 are the first Sony interchangeable-lens cameras to offer movie recording – and they do it in style. With a new high-speed, low-noise Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor that's large enough to capture background defocusing effects, and a dedicated new line of ultra-quiet E-mount lenses to help keep AF motor noise off your movie soundtrack.* Both cameras support HD movie recording in the convenient MP4 format, which makes it easy to post video clips on blogs or video-sharing websites. And the powerful NEX-5 goes a step further, offering big, beautiful 1920 x 1080 Full HD image quality with the high capacity of the AVCHD recording format.
