IMPORTANT: At the time you are reading this I am driving across Europe (at least 13 hours drive). I will answer your mails the next days. Also comments waiting for moderation have to …wait more than usual. One more thing, I got my NEX-5n right before my departure. I will do some backstage photos of the reportage we are shooting in Doel (Antwerpen). My first impression? The Black NEX-5n + Nokton 35mm f/1.4 combo looks sexy. Image quality is amazing. What I don’t like is the usbaility of the NEX-5n (and I will write mroe about that when I am back form my trip). See you soon!
Here are the news:
Lori Grunin from CNET (Click here) posted a full Sony NEX5n review: “I don’t know that I can recommend the NEX-5N as the best option for point-and-shoot upgraders; for that the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3 offers the more familiar interface and performance worth stepping up to. And I think the body itself might be too small for some people looking for a dSLR alternative, and for some of those folks a hardware mode dial or traditional hot shoe can be a deal killer. But it’s a solid camera with extremely good video quality and capabilities for its class, and though its performance isn’t best in class, it’s certainly good enough.”
EosHD (CLick here) wrote a tutorial about how to optimize the Sony NEX 5N for cinematic video.
Kayakphoto (Click here) just got the new external OLED viewfinder for the NEX-5n: “Once again the quality of the EVF is truly outstanding. When coupled with some of my older Nikkor glass and using the manual focus assist I can literally see the difference in quality as the lens is stopped down. This also shows up with focus peaking.”
You can get the viewfinder at Amazon.de, eBay.de.
And as I did with the NEX-7 once here is the full worldwide Sony store list (+ some more shops) to check the NEX-5n availability and price. Just click on the name to visit the product page!
