One day I will have one!

Every time I turn around, it seems like everybody nowadays owns one of those DSLR cameras, it makes me want to have one of my own. It's not because I want to be in a competition with somebody, but it's because the picture quality is really unbelievably good! I am into scrapbooking and crafting, owning one of these cameras will really help my creations to look more professional. There is nothing better than a crispy clear high quality pictures that every details of the subject is captured, point and shoot camera don't really do the trick as much as I want it to be. But we all know how pricey one of those camera is, and another downfall is they are just too bulky for me, I want one that I could easily stick in my purse without carrying extra bag. I have been doing a researched online and I think I may have found the perfect DSLR for me, the picture below is Sony Alpha NEX-5K...


...this is in fact a DSLR, but almost half the size and weight of a regular DSLR, if I were to buy one, this will be the perfect one for me. I'm not able to afford it right now, but there will be one day, I will be able to afford it, it may take me years to save my money but it will happen! I also included all the features of this camera below...

Detailed Features

Smallest in class
This is the world's smallest interchangeable lens digital still camera (as of April 2010). We removed the conventional mirror box, AF sensor and viewfinder, reducing the "flange back" distance from 44.5 mm to 18 mm. The result has all the quality of an α DSLR, but is 48% smaller and 49% lighter than our α230.

Interchangeable lenses

Compatible with Sony's E-mount series of smaller, lighter lenses designed specifically for α compact interchangeable lens cameras. Opens up a world of creative options.

APS-C size HD image sensor

The same sensor format that Sony builds into the full-sized α DSLRs. With 13 times the area of the typical4 image sensor, APS-C makes the difference between "snapshots" and "photographs," delivering an exceptional combination of high resolution, high sensitivity and gorgeous, blurred backgrounds.

First in class with 1080/60i movies

This is the world's first interchangeable lens still camera with 1080/60i AVCHD Full HD, exactly the same resolution and frame rate as most broadcast and cable HDTV channels. Records in 1080/60i AVCHD™ format, 1080/30p high definition in PC-friendly MP4 format and standard definition 480/30p in MP4 format.2

14.2 megapixel resolution

You get incredible detail and gorgeous enlargements. Thanks to the APS-C sensor size and Sony Exmor™ APS HD CMOS technology, the camera achieves high resolution with no penalty in low-light sensitivity or sensor noise.

Up to 7 frames per second

Capture the decisive moment in sports and get the ideal baby photo. Up to 7 fps continuous shooting at full 14.2 MP resolution with exposure and focus fixed at the first frame. Standard continuous shooting at up to 2.3 fps.

ISO 12800 sensitivity

Incredibly clear low-light pictures without sacrificing detail. As of April 2010, this is best-in-class performance, made possible by low-noise Exmor™ APS HD CMOS image sensor and refined BIONZ® image processor.

Sweep Panorama

Capture expansive landscapes automatically. Press the shutter, sweep vertically or horizontally. The camera does the rest, continuously shooting images and stitching them together. Up to 23 MP image size. Up to 202 degrees maximum sweep angle (16mm focal length).

3D Panorama

Captures scenic vistas in spectacular 3D. As you sweep across the panorama, the camera records separate right-eye and left-eye images that make landscapes come alive on your 3D television.14

Anti Motion Blur mode

Corrects for subject movement to capture amazingly clean and sharp images in low light. The camera leverages the large, APS-C image sensor and captures six images in a fraction of a second. Combining the data from all six creates a single image that minimizes subject blur.

Hand-held Twilight Mode

Corrects for subject movement to capture amazingly clean and sharp images in low light. The camera leverages the large, APS-C image sensor and captures six images in a fraction of a second. Combining the data from all six creates a single image that minimizes subject blur.

Auto HDR built into camera

High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography captures more scene contrast than a single exposure can handle by combining the best highlight detail from one shot and the best shadow detail from another for one incredible shot. Until recently, you needed a computer and editing software. Sony builds HDR in. Handles severe backlighting and other high-contrast scenes. Captures in a split second. (Recommended for still subjects.)

Live View LCD

The LCD monitor is active full-time for composing shots. Provides a what-you-see-is-what-you-get preview of white balance, focus, depth of field, exposure and 100% framing accuracy, plus informative on-screen displays.

Tiltable 3” LCD screen3

Empowers your photography with a different point or view. Tilts down 45° and up 80° to frame high- and low-angle shots that would otherwise be hit-or-miss.

920K pixel TruBlack™ LCD screen

Sony's Xtra Fine LCD™ monitor has best-in-class resolution (as of April 2010). The TruBlack™ screen includes a special resin layer to suppress internal reflections, increase contrast compared to conventional LCDs. Sunny Weather mode boosts visibility even further in bright sunlight.
