there are two things that we always associate with DSLR cameras: hefty price and a size to match. because of price, i went ahead with a prosumer instead, which is not exactly a compact camera by any measures and not to mention the serious lack of the DSLR performance; and even with a slightly petite form, i almost wanted to give up bringing it with us when we last went to Boston. the point is, DSLR is pricey and a pain to be lugging around. but with the new Sony NEX-5T Compact System Camera, it kind of changes everything – it is blessed with DSLR capabilities, complete with interchangeable lens (compatible with E-mount lenses), packed into a stylish, ultra-compact body.

of course, this concept is not new to the Japanese electronics maker, however, with the new NEX-5T you will be getting a whole lot more like a large 16.1MP Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor, speedy Auto Focus, and NFC for one-touch WiFi connectivity. having a larger sensor that’s typically found in traditional DSLR shooters, means the NEX-5T is a keen performer even in low-light situations and also has the ability to recording Full HD videos. in addition to WiFi for connecting to smartphones or tablets, the NEX-5T also features NFC for a painless “touch connection” for transferring images to NFC-enabled Android devices. a few other notable features include fast hybrid autofocus, fully programmable control dial and function (Fn) button, a 3″ tillable LCD monitor, and multi-interface terminal for a host of accessories such as external flash, microphones et cetera.
