operation and smooth zooming even when shooting selfie-portraits, bringing compact camera
convenience to the realm of interchangeable-lens models.

other people, experiment with interesting angles or shoot against famous landmarks. When you
press the shutter, the camera does all the work.

your choice of 60i/24p Blu-Ray quality AVCHD™ format5, or in PC-friendly 1080/30p MP4 format.
Low light situations not a problem
Built-in pop-up flash in a compact camera body is perfect when an extra burst of light is needed
to get the shot. Combines with high ISO sensitivity – from 100 to 16000 ISO - to enable shooting in
just about any setting.
Auto Object Framing fills the frame with your subject
Give your photos a professional look with Auto Object Framing. Featuring advancements like
exceptional two-person portrait capability along with Face Detection and Tracking Focus,
Auto Object Framing not only turns ordinary photos into stunning compositions but does so
automatically recognizing the scene then cropping accordingly.
Compact, easy-to-carry PZ 16-50mm kit lens
For the ultimate in portability, the a5000 includes the collapsible SELP1650 power zoom as the kit
lens. Ideal when traveling or anytime a compact, lightweight camera-combo is desired.

vastly expand your artistic repertoire. The ability to view effects in real-time on the LCD screen11
before the shot lets you experiment with different looks until you are satisfied with the result.
Photo Creativity feature
The a5000 provides easy access to Picture Effect settings as well as controls for Background
Defocus, Brightness, Color and Vividness. Just activate Photo Creativity, choose the appropriate
item then adjust while viewing in real-time on the LCD screen. The ability to combine settings
offers nearly unlimited creative control, and lets you compensate for tricky lighting.
Superior Auto mode
Use Superior Auto mode to shoot photos and movies with the ease of a compact digital camera.
In this mode, the camera recognizes the current shooting environment then adjusts settings for
optimal results. Superior Auto also includes Auto HDR and Hand-held Twilight modes, both of
which employ image compositing technology to handle difficult lighting by recording multiple
images at high speed then compositing them to produce the final photo.
Anti-Motion Blur mode
Corrects for subject movement to capture amazingly clean and sharp images in low light. The
camera leverages the large, APS-C image sensor and captures six images in a fraction of a
second. Combining the data from all six creates a single image that minimizes subject blur.
Hand-held Twilight Mode
Get cleaner and sharper nighttime pictures—beyond the capability of traditional cameras—
without using flash or a tripod. The camera leverages the large, APS-C image sensor and
captures six images in a fraction of a second. Combining the data from all six creates a single
image of extraordinary detail and low noise.
Face Detection/Smile Shutter
Set the a5000 to recognize faces and smiles. Face Detection locates up to eight faces in a
composition then adjusts exposure, white balance and other settings based on these faces. Smile
Shutter — adjustable in three levels — automatically takes a shot when smiles in the scene are
Creative Style
Tailor the look of photos and movies before shooting. Choose from one of seven settings —
Standard, Vivid, Portrait, Landscape, Sunset or Black & White — depending on the scene or your
creative intent.
