Sony announces NEX 5T, the most perfect companion camera for the Android telephone


The Samsung Galaxy Camera as well as the leaked Sony “lens camera” accessories may receive the hearts whipping a bit quicker, however the newly announced Sony NEX 5T is the companion camera accessory which I’m really excited regarding. The Sony NEX brand has gotten rave ratings by the general public as well as the hit, to imagine why the brand-new Sony NEX 5T with NFC plus WiFi might excite me. The camera’s specs include a 1.2-inch thick body, 16.1MP Exmor sensor along with a 180 degree tilting TFT LCD panel. Like past Sony NEX cameras, the 5T is suitable Sony’s full line of E-Mount lenses.

But NEX 5T’s true magic lies inside its one-touch image plus movie sharing plus remote control features enabled from Sony’s PlayMemories Mobile. PlayMemories is installed about any Android four.x equipment. If the telephone refuses to have NFC, pictures will nonetheless be shared over WiFi. When the pictures are about the mobile telephone, you are able to upload those to a social networks or share them about Instagram (though which can be considered “cheating”).


The Sony NEX 5T may market for $700 whenever paired with its 16-50mm kit lens or $550 for only the camera body.

While Samsung, Nikon along with a limited others are playing about with cameras running Android, I personally think Sony’s approach is a more sensible answer. All customers wish is the ability to share their photos because conveniently because potential. If one-touch image plus movie sharing with NFC plus WiFi does the trick, do you want a camera running a full mobile OS?
