  • Summary: The NEX-5N is great little camera with big camera image quality. If you are looking to transition into enthusiast photography and want DSLR image quality in a small size, the 5N is definitely worth a look.
  • Pros: Very good JPEG output quality, Very good build quality, Support for excellent OLED EVF module, Support for SLT Alpha mount lenses through the optional LA-EA2 adapter, Easy to use but versatile iAuto mode, Wider range of ISO sensitivity settings available in Auto ISO mode (up to ISO 3200), Good, clear live view magnification (particularly useful for using non E-mount lenses), Useful built-in user guide (Shooting Tips), Addition of Picture Effects to PASM shooting modes...
  • Cons: Operation is very different in photo creativity modes compared to PASM modes - may be confusing for ambitious novices., No external microphone input (Sony does offer an optional screw on mic that plugs into the accessory port), Touchscreen offers little additional operational benefit

Sony NEX-5N review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • Summary: While it may seem that Sony has just added 2 million pixels to the NEX-5 and rebadged it, there is far more going on in the NEX-5N. For example, the image sensor isn't just of a higher resolution, as it also has a better dynamic range and improved handling of noise. The new optional EVF and phase-detection Alpha mount adapter are great additions to the NEX line-up, although they are expensive.

  • Summary: I first saw this early last autumn at the impressive restaurant at OXO tower. I took some great images from their outside balcony over the Thames and have been impatiently waiting to get my hands on one to give it a thorough review.

  • Summary: Comes with touchscreen and two million more pixels
  • Pros: Small body yet large APS-C sensor, Tilting LCD, Clip-on flashgun included, Sweep Panorama
  • Cons: Unlabelled soft keys, Inelegant front-heavy appearance with kit lens, More of a consolidation than a leap on from its predecessor

Sony NEX-5N

Pocket Lint

  • Conclusion: The NEX-5N has two major things going for it: image quality and its HD movie mode. There’s no other compact system camera out there that can better the 5N’s images (except, perhaps, for the as-yet-untested NEX-7), though the distortion at wide-angle settings can make for edge softness issues. As for the second point: the 1080p movie mode is exceptional in quality, control and performance terms.
  • Pros: Great image quality, fantastic HD movie mode
  • Cons: Jumbled menu system, autofocus no longer on par with other CSCs, touchscreen takes a back seat

  • Excerpt: Le Kit Sony Alpha NEX-5N 18-55mm est le kit de base du Sony 5N puisque c'est celui qui intègre un zoom transtandard. celui-ci conviendra à la plupart des usages amateurs, mais on lui reprochera de ne pas expliter pleinement ce capteur très réussi qui équipe le 5N. Pour une meilleure qualité globale, on lui préfèrera ainsi le 18-200mm...

Cámara réflex Sony Alpha Nex-5N

30 September 2012
  • Conclusion: Si quieres una cámara muy completa, pero que no sea tan compleja como las convencionales réflex de cuerpo robusto, esta opción es muy recomendable. Una ventaja para quienes ya tienen algunos conocimientos en fotografía es que permite hacer ajustes manuales.
  • Pros: La opción que tiene el usuario de intercambiar lentes según sean sus necesidades. Ofrece tan buena calidad de imagen que el propietario podrá imprimir sus fotos en formatos mayores a los normales sin perder calidad de detalle.
  • Cons: No maneja un buen contraste de color. El costo de algunos de los lentes que se pueden utilizar llega a ser alto.
