Sony's Latest World's Smallest System Camera, A5100

Sony has introduced a new camera with a lightening fast autofocus and APS-C E-mount to replace NEX-5T.  Sony claims it is the world's smallest in its class for its sensor size with a built-in flash and Wi-Fi.

Sony A5100 will be sitting right below the A6000 in Sony's current line up of compact system cameras.

It features a 24.3-million pixel APS-C sized Exmor CMOS sensor, along with Sony's latest generation Bionz X processor and speedy hybrid autofocus also borrowed from A6000.

Basically you will be getting similar performance in a lighter body compared to A6000.  One feature that has been dropped is electronic viewfinder as it is geared toward users getting into system camera rather than photo enthusiast or semi-pros.

One surprising feature is the touchscreen which for some reason did not make to A6000.  People who are used to snapping photos with their smartphone will no doubt love this one.

Wi-Fi connectivity is also included, as is the ability to expand the camera's functionality with apps downloadable from the Sony PlayMemories store. NFC technology is included for making quick connections between the camera compatible devices, too. You can easily transfer images between devices, or use a smartphone or tablet to control the camera.

There is no physical control on A5100, making it feel even more like a beefed up smartphone camera.  This is one highly pocketable high performance camera that won't make a big dent on your wallet.

Lastly, you get amazingly high quality video recording with full HD (1080p) at 50 Mbps.  It's available for pre order today!
