From Sony's digital mirrorless camera series "α", the new mirrorless interchangeable lens camera NEX-5T will be out on Sept 13.
NEX-5T is the first α series camera that features NFC functionality, and thanks to that, you are able to forward the photos and movies you have just taken to a smartphone or tablet wirelessly by pairing them up through one-touch operation, and also you are able to activate the Smart Remocon (remote control) function that allows you to use the smartphone or tablet as the camera's remote control.
Sony added the image processor BIONZ, Exmor APS HD CMOS image sensor (APS-C size), which is the biggest class in the mirrorless camera industry, and improved auto focus function with Fast Hybrid AF for the NEX-5T model.
When you buy just the camera, it is only available in black, but when buying a lens kit (camera plus lens), you can choose among 3 colors: black, silver, white.
