Sony A5100 tested at Cinema5d and Mobile01.

Familia Gladiatoria- A Sony A5100 review from Johnnie Behiri on Vimeo.

Cinema5D (Click here) tested the video performance of the A5100. Obviously this is not what the camera was made for:

The Sony A5100 is a basic entry level large sensor camera housing some professional features. It is a nice camera for the occasional family user. I’ll be surprised if any professional will find it useful for any of their video productions as the camera, the way it is, leaves a lot to be desired.

Mobile01 (Click here) posted many sexy images of the camera. And many image/video samples and ISO tests. Check it out even if you don’t can’t understand the text!

New A5100 gets tested at Cinema5D. Shows impressive dynamic range and beats the 5dmarkIII.

The newly announced Sony A5100 got lab-tested by the Cinema5D team. As you can see from the graph on top the dynamic range is impressive for an APS-C camera:

In terms of dynamic range the Sony A5100 surprises with the measured results and beats most other important cameras we tested, even more expensive ones. As mentioned above the subjective impression we have about dynamic range on the A5100 is lower than the software results and can’t compete with the Sony A7s. It also shines in rolling shutter performance. Overall it seems Sony has built its latest processing technology into this little mirrorless camera, providing good lowlight noise levels as well, which however we see nowhere close the A7s (not tested scientifically yet).

Sounds really great!

No buyers storm on the new Sony A5100 (says Amazon). New Sony A5100 tests and video roundup.


Detailed look at the Sony a5100 interchangeable lens camera (found via Nofilmschool)

While this isn’t a scientific measure I just checked the Amazon digital camera Best seller rankings (Click here) to see if the new Sony A5100 got many preorders (Amazon counts orders-preorders in that list). Well unlike the A6000 to other popular E-mount cameras the A5100 didn’t even make it into the top 100 of that list. Well this may changes if you check out that list of new reviews and videos :)

There is a short hands-on review in Thai but with plenty of great product pictures and image samples posted at Pantip.com (google translation here).
