Sony Alpha NEX-5 Review

Digitaltrends
13 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Sony hinted at this camera in February and we couldn’t wait to use it. What is “it”? A small, lightweight camera with the large imaging sensors found in DSLRs as well as interchangeable lens capability.
  • Pros: Truly compact and lightweight, Rich, accurate colors, Very good 1080i videos, Superior 3-inch adjustable screen
  • Cons: Very noisy at highest ISOs, Limited lens selection, Would like color-coordinated attachments, Even more of a slam-dunk if it were cheaper

  • Conclusion: The Sony Nex-5 is a very impressive camera. Picture quality is eye catching and is a clear step up from a standard digital camera. Build quality is also top drawer. It has a set of features that is a step up from the most basic Digital SLRs. All of this is packed into a small, lightweight body.
  • Pros: Small size - clarity of pictures - build quality
  • Cons: Fiddly flash unit - limited range of compatible lenses with E mount - can overexpose photos

  • Conclusion: Overall, the NEX-5 accomplishes almost everything it sets out to do. It's slim and compact (particularly with the pancake lens). It's got a lovely LCD, a reasonable selection of lenses, and a better autofocus than its competitors. It also looks fantastic.
