Clicking problem during video is still an issue 10/2012

Nick, Amazon
17 October 2012
  • Summary: I bought my NEX-5N from Amazon and it arrived promptly on 10/17/2012. I've been reading the reviews so one of the first things I tried was the video! And I am sad to say but I too am a victim of the clicking noises. However, I will admit that it takes great pictures. I am returning and trying my luck with a second one... I give Sony 2 stars for continuing to sell these bad batches and also for letting this type of basic usability issue pass their QC process.

Why Is Amazon still selling defective models of this camera?

JD, Amazon
16 February 2012
  • Summary: UPDATE: 21 FEB 2012: Amazon appears to be looking into this issue now - I believe they are intercepting/checking my return to verify this problem. I don't speak for Amazon in any way of course and don't know what action they will take if any but to me this shows why Amazon is the #1 place to buy from - they become aware of an issue and genuinely are interested in fixing it. They went out of their way to discuss this problem with me and immediately refunded my purchase.

Sony shutter sound obnoxious

WildRed2000, Amazon
23 January 2012
  • Summary: I purchased the Sony NEX-5N and I am returning it. I phoned Sony and they informed me that the shutter sound that the camera makes cannot be turned off! So, I cannot takes photos at weddings with this camera, I cannot take photos at sports events (Golf mainly) with this camera and cannot take photos of my grandchildren with this camera.

I returned this camera for a clicking sound on the video.

Hector, Amazon
4 December 2011
  • Summary: The camera does not feel very well made. The picture quality is excellent, but the video has a big flaw: when you are recording video and you move the camera suddenly (like when walking fast, or in a car, etc), it records a clicking sound strong enough to be very well noticed in the final video. It is a shame that Sony has not fixed this problem. I am retuning the camera to Amazon for a refund. I don't recommend this camera.

  • Excerpt: Выбирал между Nikon J1 и сабжем - что меня подвигло выбрать Sony - я сам не понимаю =( Камера не для обычного любителя - для любителя поковыряться в настройках.
  • Pros: качество сборки хорошее - нет люфтов, все весьма добротно собрано| автофокус по касанию пальцем нужной области на экранчике.
  • Cons: Эргономика у фотоаппарата никакая - большой, тяжеленький, прикручивающаяся вспышка - ну это вообще конструкторское извращение... Вот сами подумайте - а оно надо? Я для себя определился с тем, что мне надо как потребителю-любителю именно простоту съемки - камеры Point-and-Shoot - вот мой выбор. Лично для меня самым лучшим аппаратом остается Panasonic LX3 (и еще я бы хотел бы иметь новый Canon EOS M Kit) с его механически выкидной вспышкой (хочешь - фоткай со вспышкой, ...

Egonomie perfectible

AMAIX "amaix", Amazon
29 January 2012
  • Summary: Excellent appareil (j'utilise aussi un Nikon D800 avec des optiques pro, le petit Sony se défend plus que bien dans 80% des situations) mais un gros défaut d'ergonomie, à mon avis, pour celui qui aime jongler avec les réglages d'une photo à l'autre (mode autofocus, zone autofocus, mode de mesure de la lumière, balance des blancs, etc.
