Sony has today announced the NEX-5T - it's latest CSC which arrives with a host of new features.
The foremost of the Sony NEX-5T's new features concerns the camera's connectivity. The NEX-5T joins the growing list of CSCs - and digital cameras on the whole - which launch with the dual options of both Wi-fi and NFC connectivity.
Through the NEX-5T's NFC connectivity photographers can establish a one-touch connection with similarly enabled devices for wireless transfer or remote control of the camera.
Other headline features include an APS-C sized sensor more in keeping with that usually found in an entry-level DSLR, boasting a 16.1MP resolution.
The sensor delivers Full HD video capture and promises improved results at higher ISO settings.
One core imaging highlight is the inclusion of a Hybrid AF system which Sony promises will provide impressive AF performance through the combination of phase-detection and contrast-detection AF technologies
On the rear of the NEX-5T sits a tiltable LCD screen which can be rotated around 180-degrees to face forwards.
In a hint towards the camera's mass-market appeal, Sony notes that the front facing LCD and Auto Portrait Framing technology will be perfect for capturing 'selfies'.
The Sony NEX-5T is compatible with Sony's PlayMemories Camera Apps which are downloadable and can add a host of extra functionality and photo editing effects to the camera.
The Sony NEX-5T is available for pre-order now www.sony.co.uk and will be on general sale next month
