The new Alpha a5000 upgrades Sony’s entry-level NEX-3N mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera with the excellent 20.1-megapixel Sony Exmor APS-C sensor introduced in the a3000, the BIONZ X image processor used in Sony’s flagship a7 and a7R full-frame mirrorless models, and built-in WiFi with NFC (just tap to connect to a compatible Android device). You can also use WiFi to wirelessly transfer images to or control the camera remotely from an iOS device.
The NX1100 shares the Samsung APS-C 20.3-megapixel image sensor and built-in Wi-Fi capability as its higher-end brothers, but measures just 4.5×2.5×1.5 inches and weighs just 7.8 ounces. The NX1100 also carries the lowest price of the NX cameras, but provides many of the same shooting features. AutoShare automatically saves still images to the camera and transfers them to a compatible smartphone as you shoot, via wireless connection. Video capabilities include 1080p and 720p at 30 fps with stereo sound via built-in mics. Like the higher-end NX cameras, the NX1100 can shoot full-res images at 8 fps and 5-megapixel images at 10, 15 and 30 fps (maximum 30 shots).
STANDOUT FEATURE: AutoShare comes to Samsung’s entry-level mirrorless camera.
