Great Pictures, Poor longevity and customer service, Panarama feature stopped working at 4 months

C. Sheffield, Amazon
15 April 2014
  • Summary: This camera takes wonderful photo's and is compact and easy for on the go. Small enough it is not cumbersome for vacation use. Unfortunately Sony customer service is pretty inconvenient. I purchased this camera in April 2013, it mysteriously stopped working in February 2014.

  • 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

  • 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.

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. It has no area to snuggle up to your tripod mount

  • Summary: I just got this and was so excited, tried to take a picture but everytime I do a "camera error" comes up and says to turn it off and then back on. Does anyone know if that means it's defective or a common error ?

  • 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.

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.

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.

  • 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
