NEX 5 hands on

I got to use AL/EX’s NEX 5 Yesterday. The day before, he told me he had cancelled his pre order for the NEX 5, but we should go out for lunch as he had something to show me. I though he had a purchased a Olympus PEN (or equivalent), but he dropped the bombshell by showing me a shiny new NEX 5. It’s a lot smaller than I expected my big sausage fingers felt cumbersome with it in my hands.What I found strange is that it seems to make a “mirror slap” when you shoot with it.


The panorama mode was one of the first things I wanted to see. My first few attempts went wrong but after a few practices I started to get to grips with it. It’s a very nice function that I want to test a lot more.

OK 1080 is 1080 but we wanted to know how the camera handled changing lighting situations when filming.

the NEX handled the changing lighting situation very easily
