They say that the best camera is the one that's with you. That's why the NEX-5N is perfect for traveling. It delivers professional-quality photos, without the bulk of a full-sized DSLR camera.
Some call it DSLR quality in your pocket. We call it the world's smallest interchangeable lens digital still camera using a large APS-C size sensor.1 By removing the mirror box and viewfinder, we're left with a camera that's about half the size of a standard DSLR.
Capture the decisive moment—like the ball hitting the bat—with up to 10 fps continuous shooting at full 16.1-megapixel resolution. It's also great for capturing a unique sequence of photos. This ultra-fast speed is often the deciding factor when shooting frame-worthy photos.
At 13 times the size of most compact digital cameras, the sensor in the NEX-5N can harness impeccable detail and help produce gorgeous enlargements. The large, APS-C sensor size and Sony Exmor™ APS HD CMOS technology achieve an incredibly high, 16.1-megapixel resolution with no penalty in low-light sensitivity or sensor noise.
Make movie magic with sensational, Full HD 1920x1080 recording5 detail. There's also a variety of frame rates, from 60p for super-smooth action to 24p for a more cinematic feel. Plus, you can record in the industry-standard AVCHD™ codec for high quality HD video, or the MP4 codec for easy uploading to the web.
