You can’t take a photography studio with you everywhere you go, but you can have the next best thing: a SONY A-5000 DIGITAL CAMERA W/16-50mm LENS, BK in your pocket. This highly portable, highly wireless camera has the visual capacity and features to give you everything you want—even if it’s wrapped in a tight package.

Product Highlights

  • Full HD movies and video is totally mandatory for a camera like this, and the Sony Alpha A 5000 delivers with 1920x1080resolution. Translation: you won’t have to sacrifice image quality when you start capturing video.
  • The tiltable touch LCD offers you 180-degrees of viewfinding magic even when you have to take awkward shots or position yourself for that selfie you’ll be uploading to social media.
  • Pop-up flash means that your camera is also something of a high-tech gizmo. You may feel like an international spy when the extra capabilitiy pops up, but don’t worry: the Sony Alpha A 5000 is still just a camera.

Of course, “just a camera” is something of an insult to what could otherwise be described as a portable photography studio—even if it’s not quite as big as the expensive guys.


Learn about the SONY A-5000 DIG CAMERA W/16-50mm LENS, BK

Want a photography studio in your pocket? Then call a genie. We at Adorama can offer the next best thing: the small-yet-powerful SONY A-5000 DIG CAMERA W/16-50mm LENS, BK, a camera for amateurs and photography enthusiasts alike. Not only is this camera mirrorless as advertised, taking up less space in the camera itself, but it packs a surprising photographic wallop. You might not expect a camera this small to offer the clarity and stunning images that can be found with the Sony Alpha A 5000, but we’re in the 21st century now: the era of mega-computers fitting within the casing of a smart phone.

But let’s not talk about how small and portable this camera is. Let’s talk about what counts: what’s going on inside to make it worthy of your consideration as your next photographic investment:

  • Image quality: image quality is the name of the game for any camera, from the camera on your smart phone to the mega-dollar Hollywood cameras that shoot your favorite movies. Does the Sony Alpha A 5000 deliver where it counts? Thanks to an APS-C image sensor and fast focusing, you bet it does. The brand-new BIONZ-X processor and interchangeable lens capabilities also allow you a stunning range of image capacity, changing up your style and shot selection every single time you decide to get creative. This is no mere camera built for amateurs—it’s a mirrorless camera that even pros will be able to use with a great degree of creative satisfaction.
  • Tiltable-touch LCD: A camera this portable still has to be able to deliver viewfinding that offers you a satisfying preview of your next photograph’s subject. Thanks to some ingenuity from Sony, the LCD screen here is 180-degree tiltable, giving you the dynamic range to know what’s going on with every single shot—even if you have to hold the camera at an awkward angle. You can use this feature to take the best selfies of anyone you know, which is an advantage if, despite your better efforts, you know you’re going to take them anyway.
  • Easy connectivity with smartphones and tablets. Let’s face it: this is a must-have. The ILCE-5000L’s Wi-Fi NFC capacity here will allow you to ditch cords and cables and stick to a more portable, simple lifestyle of true wireless connectivity.  There’s no reason you should have to lug around a bunch of excess cables with a camera this portable, and the Sony Alpha A 5000 ensures that it stays portable through wireless capacities.
  • HD movies: Don’t limit yourself to still shots. Become an ad hoc cinematography with plenty of HD movie capacities, including 60i or cinematic 24fps. The full HD resolution of 1920x1080 gives you enough clarity in video that you can take plenty of live shots and not worry about losing any of the visual quality that you expect from the still shots. The PC-friendly MP4 setup will make it easy for you to upload videos to the Internet and quickly share those precious moments with your followers on social media.
  • Apps. Did Adorama mention apps? The PlayMemories Camera Apps allow you to enhance portraits, take beautiful close ups, create time lapses, and a variety of other functions. When we say this camera packs a wollop, we mean it.

A camera as small and portable as the SONY A-5000 DIG CAMERA W/16-50mm LENS, BK doesn’t have to be inferior to the bigger guys—anyone with a laptop will tell you that technology doesn’t have to be big to be great. In fact, when it comes to portability and quality, there’s no beating a camera that fits in your pocket.
