Sony Alpha NEX 3 / 5 (firmware v2)

Camera Labs
1 September 2010
  • Summary: The NEX cameras are primarily about squeezing DSLR quality into compact bodies. They achieve this by employing a DSLR-sized sensor, but dispensing with the traditional mirror and optical viewfinder and using their screens as the sole means of composition.
  • Pros: Small and light, but comfortable to use., Excellent low light performance., HD movie mode with AF and optional external mic., Tilting high resolution screen., Good auto and innovative shooting modes., Fast response and continuous shooting.
  • Cons: Frustrating control system for enthusiasts., Screen becomes hard to view in direct sunlight., No manual control in video mode., Inconsistent face detection compared to compacts.

Sony NEX-3 Review

What Digital Camera
2 August 2010
  • Summary: The NEX-3 is mightily similar to its NEX-5 brother. What it loses in body build and grip-size it makes up for by slashing the price. At £440 with the 16mm lens it’s an absolute bargain that has class-leading image quality just the same as the NEX-5.
  • Pros: Affordable, image quality, small size
  • Cons: Fiddly flash unit, excessive menu digging, limited to three current lenses
