Was very good - for a while

snowhillguy, Amazon
19 July 2011
  • Summary: I've been using high quality cameras for more than 45 years - made the transition from film to digital, photograph professionally - I have some creds here. Though totally in love with my Nikon F's (tens of thousands of exposures over 45 years and NEVER a failure or repair) I eventually migrated to Canon/Minolta P&S just for the convenience. I have tried several digital SLR's but simply can't put up with the weight and bulk other than in a studio.

A very expensive doorstop

M. Dabney "NoStrongViews", Amazon
29 May 2011
  • Summary: I am old enough that I spent the first half of my life with SLRs and 35mm film. MY first foray into digitable photography was with a Sony Cyber-Shot-really sharp photos and easy to use. I was really excited to move upto the Sony DSLR NEX5. It arrived late Friday of this 2011 Memorial Weekend. When I opened the box the following morning, I discovered the Seller had cannabalized it;i.e.

Major Screen Fault

Mr. D. Eades, Amazon
20 October 2013
  • Summary: Beware anybody contemplating buying a Sony Camera. I bought a Sony NEX5NKS from The Camera Centre Newport, 7 Charles Street, Newport here on Amazon in August last year (2012). After 14 months I noticed that the LCD screen had blistered and discoloured making the camera difficult to use as well as look unsightly.

New stock in March 2012 STILL has clicking problems in video.

Albert R, Amazon
7 March 2012
  • Summary: I ordered a new NEX-5N on 5th March 2012 direct from Amazon UK (not a marketplace seller). I had been waiting a number of weeks for new stock to arrive, but I was fine with this as I assumed any new stock would be newly manufactured and therefore would have the infamous clicking problem resolved. Wrong! My NEX-5N exibits the same clicking problem in video that affected early models.

Sony nex 5n

mr mipps, Amazon
3 January 2012
  • Summary: I have been a keen photographer for 50 years, owned many good cameras, Rolliflexes, Nikons, etc. I can honestly state that this camera is impressive, the image quality is breathtaking, the options for image management offer extended horizons for your creativity. I agree with all the previous reviewers comments regarding this cameras image quality.

WARNING: Amazon still selling 'Clickers'!

D. Baker, Amazon
7 December 2011
  • Summary: Purchased NEX5NKB today (same day delivery) on the back of recent reviews confirming new samples do not exhibit the clicking noise during video recording. I eagerly unwrapped the camera, charged the battery, put in a memory card & started to record... Aaaaaaagh I could hear the clicking noise whilst recording, but during video playback it's unmissable. I was NOT panning too fast either...

Sony NEX 5R Wifi mehr als lausig

Wolfgang Seifert "WoS", Amazon
25 December 2012
  • Summary: Nach vielen Versuchen, eine Wifi Verbindung zum PC Windows 7 64 bit (Sony Vaio!!!) fuer Playmemorieshome herzustellen, gebe ich nun auf. Alle Einstellungen in der Kamera probiert, alle Einstellungen im PC probiert. Hier stimmt die Kompatibilitaet einfach nicht, von Sony zu Sony. Vielleicht habe ich etwas uebersehen - aber das ist nicht die Aufgabe des Kunden, in den Tiefen der fernoestlichen Verwirrung zu graben.

wenn nur das Klicken nicht wäre ...

KillersFan "KillersFan", Amazon
9 November 2011
  • Summary: Ich bin begeistert von der Bildqualität der Kamera. Allerdings hab ich nicht nur wegen der Bildqualität, sondern auch wegen der 1080/60p Videofunktion zur Nex 5N gegriffen. Problem: Das Klicken in den Videos ist vorhanden. Man hört es bei der Handhabung der Kamera fast gar nicht. Beim Abspielen macht es sich aber sehr bemerkbar, was absolut unerwünscht ist. Das Klicken ist selbst dann vorhanden, wenn man die Kamera sehr langsam und gefühlvoll bewegt.
