Wi-Fi feature in a camera is useful to the users as it provides the ability to transfer photos and videos wirelessly to any pc or smartphone or tablet. Alternatively, the users can also transfer the photos directly to a networked PC, which eases image back-ups without the need to fiddle with memory cards or connecting cables.

Offering this Wi-Fi feature to the customers, Sony recently announced a NEX-5R compact system camera which provides all the advantages of DSLR-style imaging in a more convenient, portable package along with added connectivity.

The NEX-5R camera provides a newly-developed 16.1 effective megapixel Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor. According to the company, this is similar in size to sensors found in conventional DSLR cameras. To assure richly detailed still images and crisp Full HD videos in all types of lighting conditions, Sony has combined these features with a powerful BIONZ processor, the company stated in a press release.

“With the NEX-5R camera, Sony brings the core strength of our consumer electronics business into play to fully support our digital imaging business. This unique combination of technology and style results in a compelling new product that strikes the ultimate balance between size and performance," said Masayuki Yao, director of "a" interchangeable lens cameras at Sony Canada. "With a host of exciting, innovative new features and the same outstanding image and HD video quality that our E-mount line has become known for”

Recently, the company announced that its image quality can now be found in a new, wearable point-of-view video camera for action sports filming in premium full HD 1080p. The new Action Cam (HDR (News - Alert)-AS10) will be an ultra compact point-of-view shooting solution for adventures on the mountain, in the water, and anywhere else the action happens and it weighs in at approximately three ounces (with battery).
