Sony adds two new Alpha cameras to their popular digital camera lineup. The NEX-5T Mirrorless camera featuring 16.1MP APS-C Exmor APS HD CMOS Sensor and BIONZ Image Processor. Sony Alpha A3000 incorporates 20.1MP APS-C Exmor APS HD CMOS Sensor and BIONZ Image Processor.

NYC, NY (PRWEB) August 27, 2013

The Sony Alpha A3000 DSLR Camera features the form-factor and familiar shape of an SLR within a highly compact and lightweight design. Its ergonomic grip, electronic viewfinder, and multi-interface shoe offer a wealth of support for intuitive operation and stability while shooting. The A3000 utilizes a 20.1 megapixel APS-C-sized Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor and BIONZ image processor to produce high resolution still images and full HD 1080i/p video in multiple frame rates with marked low-light quality and sensitivity to ISO 16000. The image processor also contributes greatly to minimizing overall noise levels and allowing for full-resolution continuous shooting up to 3.5 fps.

Included with the Sony Alpha A3000 DSLR camera body is a Sony E-mount 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 Standard Zoom Lens, which provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 27-82.5mm. This range of perspectives is well-suited to everyday shooting and is further enhanced through the inclusion of Optical SteadyShot image stabilization for minimizing the appearance of camera shake. An internal focusing mechanism drives the lens in a smooth and near-silent manner and the inclusion of three aspherical elements helps to reduce chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range as well as contribute to high overall sharpness.

The Sony A3000 is the first Sony E-mount camera to have an SLR-style formfactor.


It is designed to offer the best of both worlds: the stable grip and familiarity of the DSLR design, and the lightweight, compact build of the NEX line of mirrorless cameras. In addition, because it is an E-mount camera, its native compatible lenses are also compact and lightweight, which balance well with the size and weight of the camera. This melding between DSLR appearance and an atypically small size and weight make the A3000 a worthy introduction to working with an interchangeable-lens system camera.

The Sony Alpha NEX-5T Mirrorless Digital Camera houses a 16.1MP APS-C-sized Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor and the BIONZ image processor.


It offers DSLR quality and performance in a compact, lightweight body with fast and precise hybrid autofocus, and a sensitivity range up to ISO 25600 for effective low-light capture. Compared to the Alpha NEX-5R, the 5T is lighter and more compact, which, when combined with new E-mount lenses, will provide a formfactor closer to a point-and-shoot camera, but of course with features and functions that rival a DSLR.
