Fast hybrid autofocus "with 179 auto focus points, a large, light-sensitive Exmor CMOS sensor in APS-C format and the powerful Bionz X processor as a guarantee for best image quality.
A look at the technical functions of the a5100 (Alpha 5100) reveals that the little sister of the a6000 doesn't have to hide at all. In fact, thanks to comparable autofocus technology, it can bring almost as fast and precise sharpness to any image. It also has a touch-sensitive touch screen. This means: With the finger, the user decides on the exact focus point in the image.
Sharp, natural action-pictures and detailed portraits are in the way.
Thanks to its compact design and easy operation via touchscreen, the a5100 is the perfect match for ambitious amateur photographers who want more than just a smartphone or compact camera. The fast autofocus of the camera is particularly convincing. Nothing escapes the 179 phase detection points on the sensor surface. Once captured, the autofocus follows the football on the pitch, the daughter on the swing or the dog on the meadow. In portraits, the camera focuses directly on the iris in the eye at the touch of a button. Technically perfect photos are guaranteed.
If you like, you can focus or trigger the camera easily via touch screen.
When the subject is captured and the shutter release button is pressed, the 24.3 million pixels of the Exmor APS-C CMOS sensor come into play. They transmit every detail to the Bionz X image processor.
The smart processor, which is also built into the professional camera a7, gives the final touch to photos and videos with discreet improvements and excellent noise reduction.
When it comes to video recording, users not only benefit from the excellent features of the Bionz X processor, but also from the powerful autofocus. It ensures that the focus is exactly on the desired subject - and stays there when movement comes into play. And thanks to its high resolution and sensitivity, filming becomes a reality for casual film-makers, just like in the cinema.
The camera records moving images in the new XAVC S format with 50 Mbit/s in full HD.
In view of the many functions, operation is surprisingly easy. The camera can be operated via touch screen with one finger. The screen on the back can be tilted by 180 degrees. Self-portraits without cut off heads are no longer a problem. Whether selfie or landscape photography: If the photos or videos are on the memory card, the camera can transfer them to an Android or iOS tablet or smartphone at the touch of a button. From there, digital memories can then be sent to the Internet or to your friends and family's email inbox. The simplest way to connect the smartphone to the camera is via NFC technology. If the two devices touch each other, they communicate directly with each other without detours.
Thanks to "Smart Remote Control", the smartphone or tablet functions as a remote trigger with image control on the large display.…more
