This iReport is part of an assignment:

We attended web briefing hosted by Sony’s Digital Imaging Team
They also introduced a new model to the NEX system, the NEX-5TL, Compact Interchangeable Lens Digital Camera. We currently own a NEX 5 and will be upgrading to this model because of things that it does that we need in our business. It also uses lenses we already own for our older NEX and with operation with Minolta/Konica Minolta Maxxum A-mount lenses via an optional adaptor is also useful to use since we also have an older Minolta with lenses that have not been much use to us for years but now will be.
It also has a feature that will excite most out there, burst speed at 10 frames per second, panorama ability, wi-fi and NFC or near field communication which allows smartphones and similar devices to establish radio communication with each other by touching them.
Since we use Instagram, post to social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter, and send out lots of pictures in our work, this ability is extremely important to us and a perk to those that want better pictures than their cell phone while being able to share pictures via cell phone instantaneously.
