Sony enriched its collection of mirrorless cameras with another model - the Sony Alpha a5100. This new Alpha model assumed the 'interior' of the model Sony Alpha a6000 and placed all that in a compact body characteristic of the NEX-5 series.
Therefore, the a5100 can offer the same services as its 'colleague' - a 24MP APS-C Exmor™ CMOS sensor, a BIONZ X processor, an ISO range of 100-25600, an exposure compensation +/-3 EV in increments of 1/3 EV or 1/2 EV, a Full HD video (1920 x 1080) with 60 fps at 50Mbps, Wi-Fi, but all that packed in a considerably smaller, more compact and elegant housing, with the weight of only 283g (including batteries).
The extremely compact design of this model places it in the category of the smallest and lightest cameras existing today. The a5100 also brings a 3" LCD that can be flipped up to 180 degrees, which is ideal for taking self-portraits.
The new Sony Alpha a5100 will be available for sale in two variants, black and white, at a price totaling $550 for the body only, while the combination with the 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 lens will total $700.
