The fourth model in the Sony NEX series, the α NEX5N comes with full features and a 16.1 MP APS-C HD CMOS Sensor. The 3-inch tilting LCD panel adds to the range of options available for photo enthusiasts who would like nothing better than a camera that gives them high resolution pictures in all kinds of settings. Read the rest of this short NEX5N review before you heading to your favorite camera store.
The hot thing about the Sony NEX-5N is its amazing range of photo shoot options like a double zoom kit and the irresistible price of around $600 for a full range model.
Features and Benefits of the NEX-5N
The NEX-5N is indeed a photographers’ delight with its range of interchangeable Sony Alpha lenses and the optional LA-EA2 adapter. This camera comes with full guarantee of performance backed by the reliable Sony brand that prides itself in customer delight that goes beyond customer satisfaction. Though other brands have most of these features, the quality and the durability of the NEX5N is something that beats the competition hands down.
What I Like About the NEX-5N
What I like most about the NEX-5N is the ease of use and the way in which the LCD screen can be tilted back and forth which allows for low and high angle compositions. The provision of high definition video shooting and Full HD at 1800p and 60fps make it the camera of choice for those wishing to take high quality images no matter what the conditions are. Plus, the attractive price is a huge plus for me.
What I Dislike About the NEX-5N
What I dislike about the NEX-5N is that one has to delve deep into the Camera main menu to access the various flash modes. What more the unusual combination of rear sync and slow sync along with the regular auto and fill in features makes for a rather poor combination. The other feature that mars an otherwise excellent camera is that the red eye reduction feature has to be enabled through the setup menu and is not automatically enabled. This can be irritating for the amateurs who expect everything on a platter.
Overall Thoughts about the NEX-5N
Don’t let these minor flaws bother you as the NEX-5N is indeed worth the wait. With advanced photo shoot options and an ability to meld the target with the surroundings, it is indeed something that every photographer wants in a camera. At a street selling price of about $600, the camera is a steal and you should not miss it for anything in the world. I almost “forgot” about the memory stick feature which also offers full compatibility with the various formats.
So, what are you waiting for?
Rush to the nearest Sony outlet and grab your Sony NEX-5N before the stocks last and you would not regret the decision.
