Product Features in Detail

Bigger Sensor, Better Pictures
Get delightful details and exquisite enlargements. Thanks to the APS-C sensor size and Sony Exmor™ APS HD CMOS technology, you'll achieve high 16.1MP resolution with no penalty in low-light sensitivity or sensor noise.

Professional Class Shooting Speeds
Capture that game changing moment in sports or get the perfect baby photo. Shoot at up to 10 frames per second at full 16.1MP resolution with exposure and focus fixed at the first frame.

Photo Creativity Interface
The new Photo Creativity interface puts sophisticated controls within reach. Technical terms are now replaced with friendlier and more intuitive terms which allow you to easily create custom-styled digital photographs. You can also review changes in real time on the LCD and easily make adjustments.

Full HD Movie Mastery
Record Full HD 1920x1080 video in a variety of frame rates, from 60p for super smooth action to 24p for a more cinematic feel1. The NEX-5N utilizes the AVCHD™ codec, the industry standard for high quality HD video capture, as well as the MP4 codec that's easier to upload to the web due to its small file size.

Expect More from a Camera
Sony has always recognized that a digital camera could take pictures in ways that film cameras never dreamed of. That's why we've created new capabilities to take your photography further than ever. These include Sweep Panorama™mode in 2D and 3D, Auto HDR, Handheld Twilight and Anti Motion Blur modes.

The Creativity of Changing Lenses
The beauty of SLR photography is the ability to change lenses to match your shooting situation. Now Sony brings that beauty to a compact camera. The NEX-5N gives you a choice of dedicated E-mount lenses, plus a choice of 28 A-mount lenses via an adaptor, sold separately6.
