Sony ILCE-5100 Black | α5100 Mirrorless Lens Camera with APS-C Sensor
Elevate your photography with phenomenal focus. A Fast Hybrid AF system with 179 points—plus intuitive touch focus—gives your shots professional polish.
Sony launches a new age of autofocus
Conventional autofocus (AF) deals with space alone. 4D FOCUS goes one step further with an innovative image sensor that picks up both space and time to capture moving subjects with new clarity, allowing you to take crisper photos than ever. Plain-old AF is a thing of the past. The future of photography is in motion.
Built-in pop-up flash for expanded exposures
The built-in pop-up flash (GN4; ISO 100 m) is useful for shooting in low light, capturing subjects in night landscapes (Slow Sync), and shooting portraits in backlit conditions (Daylight Flash). For the portrait-oriented, it can add a beautiful catch-light to a subject’s eyes. Rear Sync mode makes it possible to capture the path of a moving subject in a natural manner.
Track fast-moving subjects with 179 AF points
The Fast Hybrid AF system has 179 accurate phase-detection AF points, covering nearly the entire image area. They enhance subject tracking and the capture of fast-moving subjects, and improve scene recognition as well as subject size detection. Combined with 25 high-speed, high-precision contrast-detection AF points, you can capture with confidence.
