Sony NEX-5 – the world’s smallest interchangeable lens camera – review

2 July 2011
  • Conclusion: All in all, Sony’s NEX-5 ultra-compact Micro Four Thirds camera is certainly impressive, although at the $650 starting price, it is definitely very expensive – you can add $100 more and get a great DSLR with flash and an additional lens!

  • Conclusion: And so I find myself trapped, looking with longing at my pocket-sized compact, but unwilling to give up the NEX's gorgeous video and image quality. Still, I'm going to say right now that any backcountry photographer who currently uses a compact camera, especially climbers and skiers, should give the...

6 December 2010
  • Summary: The NEX-5 is a dramatic and original approach to camera design, offering some of the best image quality its class in a tiny, sleek body. It's not perfect as a camera to just point-and-shoot but in the hands of someone willing to take a little control is capable of superb results.

Sony NEX-5 Review

11 October 2010
  • Summary: In short, I’m a big fan of the Sony NEX-5. I think it’s a solid option for an interchangeable lens camera. While it is more appropriately situated as an upgrade from a point and shoot camera due to the menu-based control scheme, it is also suitable as a DSLR-alternative thanks to the still image and...
