Sony Alpha A5000 Sony Alpha A5100
4 Reasons For
Marginally Lighter
The Sony Alpha A5000 has a weight of 210g, whereas the Sony Alpha A5100 is a 224g digital camera (14g heavier).

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Read more Read less | Edit
Dustproof
The Sony Alpha A5000 is a dustproof digital camera, whereas the Sony Alpha A5100 is not.

A dustproof digital camera is one that is resistant to dust, and is sealed so that dust and sand can't get into the lens or the mechanics.

A dustproof camera is excellent for shooting in very dry climates or dusty areas, and will prevent accidental damage that would stop a normal camera from working properly.

Read more Read less | Edit
420 Battery Life
The Sony Alpha A5000 is a digital camera that takes 420 battery life, whereas the Sony Alpha A5100 only takes 400 Shots battery life.

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

3 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Higher Review Score
Expert Reviews, Erenumerique.fr and Dkamera.de all gave the Sony Alpha A5000 a better review score.
Expert Reviews: Sony Alpha A5000 = 80% vs Sony Alpha A5100 = 60%

17 Reasons For
15% Higher Megapixels
The Sony Alpha A5100 has a megapixels of 24.3MP, however the Sony Alpha A5000 is only a 20.1MP digital camera (4.2MP lower).

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Read more Read less | Edit
5 Times Higher Still Image Resolution
The Sony Alpha A5100 supports a still image resolution of 12416 x 1856, which is 5 times higher still image resolution as the Sony Alpha A5000 (2736 x 1824).

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

Read more Read less | Edit
4x Bigger Digital Zoom
The Sony Alpha A5100 has a digital zoom of 8x, but the Sony Alpha A5000 is only a 4x digital zoom digital camera (4x smaller).

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

Read more Read less | Edit
Smile Detection
The Sony Alpha A5100 features smile detection, but the Sony Alpha A5000 does not feature this benefit.

'Smile detection' is a special mode for a digital camera that can detect when the subject is smiling, and take the photo automatically when it detects a smile.

Automatic smile detection makes it easy to capture the perfect moment in a photo, and means you won't miss a brief smile due to poor reflexes.

Read more Read less | Edit
Touchscreen
The Sony Alpha A5100 has a touchscreen, but the Sony Alpha A5000 does not have this feature.

On a camera, this means that the digital display on the back of the camera is touch-sensitive, rather than relying on buttons.

Touchscreens are easier and more intuitive to control.

Read more Read less | Edit
GPS
The Sony Alpha A5100 has a GPS, however the Sony Alpha A5000 does not have this feature.

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

Better for Landscape Photography
The Sony Alpha A5100 is better for landscape photography than the Sony Alpha A5000.
When ranking cameras for their ability to photograph landscapes, we’ve concentrated on a number of key attributes. The most important of these is optical zoom capability, since it allows you to take detailed photos of particular parts of the landscape from a long way away and still have them come out in good detail. Weight and battery life are also very important, since you may be carrying your camera with your for a long time while walking around - you want it to be light enough to not be a hassle, and with a good strong battery, so it doesn’t run out of juice mid-way through the trip! Finally we have taken into account several important factors, such as environmental protection (especially water and dust resistance) and whether the camera comes with GPS, in order to pin-point exactly where you took the photo for later reference.

The Sony Alpha A5100 has an optical zoom of unknown, has a weight of 224g and takes 400 Shots battery life.

With Sony's NEX brand surrendering to the Alpha title, the A5000 is among the first compact system cameras we've seen to carry the new badge. But what's in a name? We got to play with the A5000 at the Consumer Electronics Show 2014 to find out. At first......

Since Sony dropped its NEX branding and blanketed its compact system camera line with the Alpha brand name, the range has not morphed dramatically, simply divided itself into different schools of thought: those seeking a compact alternative, and those see......
Small yet sensible size, good picture quality overall, pointandshoot simplicity
180degree tiltangle screen for selfies
Excess menu digging, no mode dials or standard function buttons, lowlight autofocus can't be pinpointed, distortion and excessive JPEG processing qualms
The Sony A5100 won't appeal to all as it's sometimes fussy to use given its lack of control dials. If that's what you're after then look to the Sony A6000 which caters for such needs, along with the addition of a viewfinder and hotshoe which the A51......

Weight

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Megapixels

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Digital Zoom

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

Maximum ISO Sensitivity

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

Touchscreen

On a camera, this means that the digital display on the back of the camera is touch-sensitive, rather than relying on buttons.

Touchscreens are easier and more intuitive to control.

GPS

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.
