Sony NEX-5N Review

What Digital Camera
13 January 2012
  • Summary: Whereas many Sony products may carry a premium price tag, the NEX-5N, as per the original NEX-5 , commands a sub-£600 price tag. That does make it a shade more expensive than much of the competition though, some £40 more than the Nikon J1 and around £100 more than both the Olympus E-PL3 and...
  • Pros: Great image quality, improved function button customisation
  • Cons: Occasional mis-focusing, slow start up, poorly placed movie button, unfriendly menu system, larger lenses than most CSC competitors

Sony Alpha NEX-5N

CNET
25 October 2011
  • Summary: We love the feel of this compact/dSLR crossover. The quality of its images is impressive, too, with vibrant colours, sharp detail and balanced exposures. If you can't decide whether to buy a pocket snapper or a semi-pro camera, check out the £660 Sony Alpha NEX-5N.
  • Pros: Compact body; Great image colours and clarity; Articulated screen; Build quality; Battery stamina.
  • Cons: Menus would benefit from finer subdivisions; No built-in flash.

Sony Alpha NEX-5N

PC Magazine
20 October 2011
  • Conclusion: The Sony Alpha NEX-5N delivers a lot of performance from its compact body, packing a sensor as large as those found in most digital SLRs and recording video in full 1080p HD. But it doesn't quite edge out its little brother, the NEX-C3, our Editors' Choice.
  • Pros: Large APS-C sensor. Includes removable flash. Touch screen interface with customizable control buttons. 1080p video recording. Optional eye-level OLED viewfinder available.
  • Cons: Can't beat the NEX-C3 in low-light performance. Slightly larger than NEX-C3. Kit lens is larger than Micro Four Thirds equivalent.

Test Sony NEX-5N : le meilleur hybride du moment ?

Clubic
12 January 2012
  • Summary: Un an et quatre mois après notre test du tout premier NEX-5 de Sony, le NEX-5N, son successeur, arrive enfin à la rédaction. L'appareil a évolué, le marché aussi : la concurrence s'est étoffée, avec entre autres une gamme toujours plus conséquente chez Panasonic et un nouvel entrant, Nikon.
  • Pros: + Très bonne gestion ISO / qualité image, + Obturateur hybride / écran orientable, + HDR / panoramique / vidéo / rafale, + Finition / stab optique / perso touches
  • Cons: - Ergonomie LCD-centrique / tactile peu utile, - Zoom ne tire pas tout le profit du CMOS, - Flash pas pratique / pas d'entrée micro, - Fixation trépied trop petite
