    My NEX-5T seems to take two photos when the shutter is pressed, the second image is zoomed in.

    Does anyone know how to turn this feature off?

    That sounds like your in the portrait mode. It is designed to do that.

    Yes you are doing auto framing. You can turn the option off

    It's not taking two photos really, it is taking 1 photo and then saving a second version of that photo that has been cropped.

    It uses face detection and some rule of thirds type algorithm to come up with the cropped version.

    To turn it off, just press Menu -> Camera -> Auto Port. Framing -> off
