Sony Nex R3 Black And White (5)

Sony is to release a new digital camera, the Sony NEX-5R. Read our Sony NEX-5R Hands-On Preview.

The Sony NEX-5R is a compact system camera, and has serious picture performance, style and portability.

It is the first camera by Sony with integrated Wi-Fi capabilities for easy image sharing, saving and viewing, as well as the ability to download photo apps for the camera. Photos and videos can be transferred wirelessly to any smartphone or tablet that’s running the free PlayMemories Mobile app.

Sony Nex R3 Black And White (9)

Key Features:

  • DLSR-quality images and Full HD video from newly-developed, large 16.1 effective megapixel APS-C image sensor
  • New Fast Hybrid AF for fast and precise autofocus in any situation; DSLR-like AF tracking for shooting at up to 10 fps
  • Download new features through built-in Wi-Fi with PlayMemories Camera Apps TM , the world’s first application download service*
  • 180° tiltable LCD touchscreen for self-portraits with ultra- compact body

Sony said:

"Combining big-sensor image quality with the freedom of interchangeable lenses, the hybrid mirrorless camera offers all the benefits of DSLR-style imaging with less to carry. A power-packed step-up from your point-and-shoot compact, it’s also a perfect second camera for photo enthusiasts who won’t compromise on image quality or control when they’re travelling light.

With a resolution of 16.1 effective megapixels, the DSLR-sized sensor assures richly detailed still photos and crisp Full HD video. It’s teamed with the powerful BIONZ image processor that ensures flawless, low-noise images – even when you’re shooting dimly-lit interiors at sensitivity settings up to ISO 25600.

In a first for interchangeable lens cameras by Sony, Fast Hybrid AF combines phase- and contrast-detection autofocus methods to suit the demands of any shooting situation. First, phase-detection AF quickly detects subject distance; then contrast-detection activates to confirm extremely fine, precise focus."

The Sony NEX-5R will be released in the UK from mid October 2012, and will cost around £670 with a kit lens.
