WHAT IS THE SONY ALPHA A5000?
Sony continues to consolidate its cameras under the Alpha branding with the launch of the new lightweight Sony A5000. Given an entry-level price, it is ostensibly a replacement for the NEX-3N, but it is effectively a rebrand and refresh, adding Wi-Fi functionality and an improved image processor. As it size and shape suggests, the A5000 is among Sony's most compact and portable system cameras, making it a potential option if you're looking to upgrade from a compact or even a smartphone.
