Sony has announced their new camera, the A5100, a smaller version of the a6000 which has all it’s features, in a smaller and cheaper device. The a5100 has a 24.3-megapixel CMOS APS-C EXMOR sensor with a BIONZ X processor from the a6000, with a super-fast hybrid autofocus system with 179 focus points.
The a5100 also has a 3-inch, 192k dot LCD screen which tilts 180-degree upwards for taking “selfies”, it also has a touchscreen and supports touch-to-focus on the desired subject. The a5100 also has WiFi and NFC to transfer images wirelessly.
The only difference between the a6000 and the a5100 is that the a5100 sacrifices the electronic viewfinder, hotshoe, microphone jack, mode control dial, adjustment dial and function button.
The a5100 is priced at $700 with the 16-50mm lens and $550 body-only.
