Imaging giant Sony recently unveiled in the Philippines the new pocket sized NEX-5T camera that features a smarter way of capturing and wirelessly sharing photos using NFC technology.
The new α NEX-5T camera is the first Sony interchangeable lens camera to feature NFC or near field communication technology, which allows this camera to wirelessly connect and share contents through touching with any NFC enabled devices like smartphones, tablets, laptops.
This camera is equipped with a large 16.1 megapixel Exmor™ APS HD CMOS sensor. The large sensors could take in more light during image capture, allowing for better image quality comparable to DSLR-quality still images. The camera can also capture full HD videos at 60p/60i/24p.
The new NEX-5T camera also features Fast Hybrid AF auto focus technology, which combines phase-detection and contrast-detection methods to ensure speedy, crisp and precise autofocus in any shooting situation.
The camera’s intuitive 99 phase-detection AF points focusing system can detect and calculate the subject’s distance and quickly lock focus.
The Speed Priority mode of this camera will automatically switch to phase detection tracking AF to track fast-moving action accurately in each frame up to 10 frames per second.
The NEX-5T camera has a growing range of downloadable functions via PlayMemories Camera Apps, with the functions equipping the camera user with more creative options and new photography effects to experiment on.
For example, Direct Upload app allows photos to be uploaded directly to Facebook and now Flickr as well, with support for additional services scheduled for the future. Other fun applications include Motion-shot, which can combine several different shots from an action-series into one creative photo. Time-Lapse takes several photos over a series of time and stitches them together to create time-lapse photography.
The NEX-5T compact camera system is offered in silver, black and white for Php 32,999 (12 month, 0% interest) with free Sony 8GB memory stick, camera bag and wrapping cloth.
