The NEX-5 measures 4.38 by 2.38 by 1.56 inches, but it is less than 1 inch in thickness without the lens mount and handgrip. It weighs only 10.1 ounces with both the battery and memory card installed. The mirrorless design of the NEX-5 allows for such a thin and small DIL camera.
With 14.2 megapixels of resolution, the NEX-5 can create large prints and can shoot impressive photos. The 3-inch LCD on the NEX-5 can rotate away from the camera and contains 921,600 pixels, creating sharp and bright images. The camera can shoot high-quality, full HD video (1080i AVCHD).
