In addition to its interchangeable lens system, the compact camera features an APS-C sensor (24MP)—the same type used in most DSLRs. The result? We snapped DSLR-rivaling images—and shot full HD video—without hauling the additional weight and bulk of a larger camera. The a5100 improves on previous versions with a faster auto-focus system and broader ISO range (100 to 25,600), which let us capture crisp action shots and low-light scenes.
The 3-inch-wide touchscreen LCD display flips up 180 degrees, making it a cinch to take perfectly framed selfies.
