Sony Launches Compact Cameras With NFC Capabilities


Sony has launched the α NEX-5T compact system cameras, that come with NFC capabilities for instant photo sharing. The cameras also come with a Smart Remote Control feature, that utilizes Wi-Fi, to send live image previews to another camera or tablet devices.

In line with last year’s NEX-5R model, the new NEX-5T camera also features Fast Hybrid AF auto focus technology. The focusing system uses 99 phase-detection AF points arrayed on the image sensor. The camera features a fully programmable control dial and Fn (function) button as well.

The NEX-5T compact system camera comes in silver, black and white for about $700 in a kit, with a 16-50mm motorized zoom lens (model SELP1650), or as a body-only for about $550.
