Sony officially details the NEX-5R camera
Sony has officially released its NEX-5R mirrorless camera at the ongoing IFA electronics show in Berlin just days after first pictures of the device made to the Internet.
The Sony NEX-5R comes with a 16.1-megapixel Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor and employs Sony’s “Fast Hybrid AF” autofocus technology, which uses 99 phase-detection AF points arrayed on the camera’s image sensor to detect the targeted subject’s distance, quickly locking focus on it, by combining both phase and contrast detection. The camera also supports Sony’s PlayMemories Camera Apps. The available apps at launch include Picture Effect+, Bracket Pro, Multi Frame NR, Photo Retouch and Smart Remote Control. Time Lapse and Cinematic Photo are also planned for release.
The NEX-5R is also the first Sony camera that comes with integrated Wi-Fi connectivity and lenses that can be exchanged.
The camera will become commercially available in October in white, silver and black color and will sell for around 750 USD with a 55 mm lens or for 650 USD for the body only.
