Sony NEX-5T with WiFi, NFC and Fast Hybrid AF


At Ubergizmo, in addition to our two Canon EOS-50D we carry the NEX-5N – we bought all those devices –  to shoot videos during briefings and conferences, and we are overall very happy with the photo quality and the high quality microphone that can be attached to the body. So we were quite excited when we could briefly get our hands on the new Sony NEX-5T that has a similar look as its (much) older sibling.

The 16.1 MP NEX-5T is the first Sony interchangeable lens camera to feature NFC that allows one-touch connection with compatible Android smartphones and tablets, for image and video sharing across devices.

For people who are not lucky enough to own NFC-enabled smartphones- and you may certainly know which devices I am talking about – image sharing can be done over WiFi using the Sony PlayMemories Mobile application, available for both iOS and Android. Both types of connectivity enable the Smart Remote Control feature that turns your phone into a remote viewfinder where you can adjust the basic photo settings and press the shutter button.


The new 16-50mm kit lens is more compact than the previous one offered with the NEX-5R

Just like the previous NEX-5R model, the new model comes with Fast Hybrid AF on a single chip which combines phase-detection (with 99 phase-detection AF points) and contrast-detection auto focus methods.

The NEX-5T boasts a 16.1 MP Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor (23.5 X 15.6mm), a 3.0-inch (7.5cm) Touchscreen TFT LCD (921.6K dots) with a 180 degree up tilt angle (50 degree down), and up to 1080p at 60 fps video capture.

The Sony NEX-5T will be available in early September and will come in silver, black and white for about $700 in a new kit with a 16-50mm motorized zoom lens (model SELP1650) or as a body-only for about $550.   It will be available for purchase in early September.
