Sony Announces New Tiny Mirrorless Camera, the NEX-5R


Sony NEX-5R Dan Bracaglia

Sony makes some of the best tiny interchangeable-lens cameras (ILCs) in the game, but ILCs have had issues in the past with autofocus on a technical level, due to the smaller sensors. The new NEX-5R, the follow-up to the excellent NEX-5N, has 99 phase-detection autofocus sensors, so it can autofocus like a champ. Plus it’s got a 180-degree swiveling screen and Wi-Fi, plus the promise of lots of cool apps from Sony. Read more about it at Pop Photo.
