The exceptional combination of Sony's renowned 16.1 MP Exmor™ APS HD CMOS sensor, 16.1 megapixels* and the BIONZ™ image processor offers you impressive results every time you shoot.
Capture Every Fleeting Moment With Precise Accuracy
NEX-5R is equipped with Sony's Fast Hybrid AF – an innovation that combines the quick responsiveness of phase-detection AF with the precision of contrast- detection AF. First, fast phase-detection AF quickly moves the lens to bring the subject into near focus as the highly precise contrast-detection AF freezes the action. With this combination you are always assured of capturing every fleeting moment.
