New Sony NEX reviews and news (NX10 vs NEX5 rolling shutter effect)


Let’s start with a “rolling shutter” effect comparison. On top you have the Sony NEX-5Sony NEX-5Sony NEX-5 and below the Samsung NX10

The japanese website DC.watch.impress posted a new image Gallery with some NEX image samples at different ISO settings

The korean website SLRclub posted the second part of their Sony NEX5 review. The article is available in korean only but there are plenty of videos to watch!

One of our readers asked Sony “if it would be possible that future firmware updates will add auto focus for ALphamount lenses? or is this a hardware limitation?“:
The answer from Sony: “Hi XXX, The LA-EA1 Mount adaptor which allows use of A-mount lenses on NEX cameras does not include auto-focus actuation for A-mount lenses. The NEX recognize the value of AF for A-mount lenses with NEX cameras, but the slow AF acquisition time of legacy mount lenses with Contrast AF systems resulted in AF function not being included. This is consistent with other Lens Mount adaptors for cameras using Contrast AF with legacy lenses. NEX also uses a powerful Focus Magnifier to aid Manual Focusing, helpful when using A-mount lenses. I hope that info was helpful!

And according to primetimecrew NEX cameras will be available late August (is that really true?)
