Sony a5000 is the Lightest Interchangeable Lens Camera with WiFi Built In

Sony has announced a new digital camera at CES 2014 that fits into its APS-C interchangeable lens line. The camera is called the a5000 and Sony says that it is the world's lightest interchangeable lens camera with WiFi connectivity. The camera weighs under 8 ounces.

“Packing DSLR imaging power into an incredibly small and light package, our new α5000 is the ultimate ‘everyday shooter’ that will appeal to a wide range of customers,” said Neal Manowitz, director of the alpha interchangeable lens camera division at Sony. “Its sleek, user-friendly design will attract point-and-shoot users looking to upgrade, while its impressive imaging credentials will appeal to photo enthusiasts looking for a compact camera that can deliver the performance, flexibility and results they crave.”

The camera features a 20.1MP APS-C image sensor and uses BIONZ X processor. That is the same processor used in the a7 and a7R cameras. The integrated WiFi capability allows the camera to connect to smartphones for sharing images and to be used as a remote control. The phone also has a tiltable LCD screen that can be turned 180 degrees.

The camera comes with a 16-50mm kit lens and it has a number of Photo Creativity modes. The a5000 camera will be available in March for $600 in the kit that comes with the lens. The camera will come in black, silver, or white colors.
