The Alpha 3000 features a 20.1MP APS-C sensor, which shoots full HD 1080p video at 60i, coupled with a viewfinder, plus a set of photo filters and effects. It also comes with an interchangeable E-mount, actually a 18-55mm lens, which comes out of the box.

The Alpha NEX-5T on the other hand, is basically an improved Alpha NEX-5R, with the compact body and the interchangeable E-mount lens as well. Though, this comes with a smaller 16-50mm lens than its predecessor with an 18-55mm lens. It still features a 16.1MP Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor, with a Fast Hybrid AF, and the ability to have a 180 degrees tilt on its screen for quick selfies. However, the NFC module is added besides its WiFi capability, which can make your smartphones a secondary viewfinder and a trigger shutter for your photos as well.
