Beautiful pictures, light & compact, took some time to master the controls
16 March 2015
Summary: PROs: Lighter and more compact than my Nikon DSLR, and the picture quality is at least as good. The controls took some getting used to after using SLRs for a few decades, but they are reasonably intuitive now that I'm accustomed to them.
Summary: I paid about $550 for the Nex-5n body and EVF. that is about $250 less then the NEX-6 for basically the same camera. My favorite feature is the Peaking Level, that outlines what is in focus, This makes manual focus easy and is great for 3rd party lenses and focus stacking.
Excerpt: It was great from the first shot i love it but prefer it with 16-50 tobe pocketable Problems: The menu is kind of confusing but finally i used to it ,you ha the voices in video mode is not clear ve to buy the microphon because
Summary: There is no camera in the world that's perfect, so I can certainly find some negatives. I used this for well over year now, a lot, and I think it's great. Aside from being real nitpicky, the one thing I wish it had is internal image stabilization.
Summary: I expect that everyone who is in the market for APS-C or similar compact cameras has already read multiple reviews on this camera. I have shot over 3,000 photos with this camera and in a nutshell, the photos are excellent quality, comparable to a DSLR with the same sensor; the compact body makes the...
Summary: Beside the Fn dial that I have to pay attention not bump into it, I think this is a great step up for people used to point a shoot camera. It is easy to handle, and shoot great quality. Compact and lightweight, easy to carry out for outdoor shooting - Mountain Biking.
Pros: compact and light weight, and close quality of the DSLR image. Very quick shutter speed in Auto mode., a A-mount lenses adaptor available for E-mount camera body, incase you can go more serious of photographing.
Cons: Note: the points I mention below are base on what I do with the camera, with my activities. I use it while on mountain biking, so compact, and light weight is priority for me. Often time I will have to quick jump out, and pull the camera and shoot before the next riders show up, so I need somethi...
Summary: This is my first mirror-less camera. I upgraded from a super-zoom (lumix fz35). The images are superb, the start up time and shooting speed are fast! I was skeptical about loosing some physical controls , such as the PASM dial and quick dial that the fz35 had, but once you get your way around and...
Summary: I got this camera for a 6 month trip; I have a DSLR but didn't want to lug everything around. I am not a pro photographer by any means. I do like to think of myself as an armature, and I am trying to learn more photography so I chose this camera to go with me.
Summary: Easy to pick up and fire when the moment strikes. Shoots very well in low-light conditions. Has better than average image clarity and color reproduction. You can read an in-depth review of it @ DPReview.com
Summary: The Sony NEX-5N must be the best camera value at the moment at these closeout prices. You get an APS-C sensor with the ability to not only use lenses designed for the NEX platform, but also nearly any "legacy" glass via an aftermarket adapter.
