Sony announces NEX-5R and PlayMemories Apps
Sony has just announced the NEX-5R mirrorless interchangeable lens camera using a newly designed 16.1 Megapixel HD CMOS Sensor that contains a lot of new technology.

For example, this new model includes a new Hybrid Autofocus System that uses 99 phase-detection AF points arrayed on the image sensor to detect a subject's distance and quickly lock focus on it, and then uses contrast-detection AF to confirm extremely fine, precise details.

Sony also announced a suite of new PlayMemories Applications, so you can even do things like control your camera from a phone or tablet running IOS or Android, transfer videos and photos via the camera's built in WiFi, and even download applications designed to run on the camera. Neat stuff.
