If you place your camera on a tripod, get something else

Keith Rembisz, Amazon

  • Summary: Menu difficult and confusing. Feels like a plastic toy. I sold mine on ebay about 6 weeks later and bought the eos m with a 22 prime lens for about 80 bucks less with the lens. If you tripod a camera beware, look at the tripod hole.

  • Excerpt: I've finally completed a set of cinematic camera rig for NEX-5R. This camera rig system is relatively smaller and lighter than other VDSLR rig systems. you can also replace NEX-5R by Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera when it comes out in the market.

Disappointing Experience

Jeff, Amazon
12 February 2013
  • Summary: I had this camera for about 2 days, I realize how this will sound but I set the camera down onto my granite counter top and the battery door broke off in a very uneventful fashion. I am a Mechanical Engineer and work with plastics, the door was either stressed before it arrived to me or made with "regrind" plastic. I spoke with Beach Camera about this, they gladly accepted the return, gave me the shipping tag, etc...

Review of WiFi aspect of the camera

araknid_x, Amazon

  • Summary: Please note that this review pertains only to the WiFi capabilities of the camera. Read one of the many other reviews for other features. I have to say I was not very impressed with Sony's implementation of WiFi functionality, here's all that you can do with the WiFi on the camera. 1. Remote control to snap pictures using a free mobile app.

Disappointment

puocwsw, Amazon

  • Summary: We bought the SONY NEX-4RK for Christmas and started having problems the first day. The error became progressively worse until we could take only one picture before having to reboot the camera. So now we send the camera in for warranty work, and instead of replacing it, SONY is going to cobble together a camera from parts on hand in the hope the next one will work. SONY's service (turn-around and quality) is extremely disappointing.

This camera is more of a beefed up point & shoot camera than a compact DSLR

digitalography77, Ebay
26 November 2012
  • Summary: WATCH OUT! The NEX-5R seems like a good choice at first, but if you're looking for a good camera for your money's worth, you'll regret buying this. The lens choices on this camera are unreasonably expensive and have limited capabilities. The touch screen's response doesn't have the best response, and without a viewfinder, the LCD is mandatory and isn't clear in sunlight. The problem may be fixed, but you have to buy a sunlight screen separately.

Für Anfänger ja. Alles darüber hinaus Finger weg.

Stephan, Amazon
20 June 2014
  • Summary: Das klingt jetzt hart und ist gegen alle Testberichte die im Verkaufsprozess der Kamera von allen möglichen selbst ernannten Spezialisten erstellt wurden. Pro 1. Kamera sieht haptisch toll aus liegt gut in der Hand. Wie eine Mni DSLR geformt 2. Fühlt sich sehr Wertig an. 3. Objektiv wechselbar. Kontra 1. Kein Sucher 2. Display zu keiner Zeit im Freien ablesbar. Bildbewertung unmöglich. Man sieht gar nichts kann es nur erahnen. 3.

  • Excerpt: Поменял на нормальную зеркалку, это мыльница с кучей гемора, в солнечную погоду без видеоискателя очень сложно, зум-объектив в 10 раз больше камеры, както все не эргономично и убого. Лучше или зеркаку купить или компакт.
  • Pros: Размер матрицы, качество фото, объективы
  • Cons: Нет вспышки, видеоискателя, не удобное меню, цена, цена объективов
