Review

I received the Sony Nex-5n about 4 weeks ago and in this Hands on Review I will cover everything you need to know about this interchangeable lens mirrorless camera and more!!

The Sony Alpha NEX-5n camera is a very powerful camera packed with features that actually work as advertised! I love the articulating 3.0 LCD screen to review pics to frame-up your next shot with the camera really low to the ground or high above your head. Tons of shooting modes including Sweep Panorama in 2D and 3D, Auto HDR,  Anti-Motion Blur mode for low light stuff, and more.  Record Full HD 1920×1080 video in a variety of frame rates, from 60p for super smooth action all the to 24p for a more cinematic feel. The Nex-5n utilizes the AVCHD codec, the industry standard for high quality HD video capture, as well as the MP4 codec that’s easier to upload to the web due to its small file size. Get incredible detail and gorgeous enlargements thanks to 16.2MP resolution and Sony Exmor APS HD CMOS technology. The kit for this camera comes with the 18-55mm f/3.5-4.5 lens for $699 or you can grab the camera body only for $599. I also just received the Sony 55-210mm a few days so the # of pictures is limited, but many more to come as well as a full hands on review of that lens ;)

With the screen aimed upward like this it’s really easy to shoot with the camera super low. Great for wet or dirty areas in particular, or if you just don’t feel like laying on the ground to look through the viewfinder on a normal camera.
