Sony NEX-5 and NEX-3 Unveiled

on May 12, 2010
Finally Sony revealed the much awaited NEX camera yesterday... Currently there are two models to choose from... The NEX-5 and NEX-3... The only difference between these two models is the former can support 1080i AVCHD video recording while the latter is limited to 720p only... Currently there are only a few manufacturers that produces mirrorless interchangeable lens camera... The most famous two are Panasonic and Olympus which is the pioneer for Micro Four Third whereas Sony NEX system is different because it uses a 14.2 megapixel APS HD CMOS sensor

Front view of the camera with the standard 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 kit lens... Too bad Sony decided to use a different mount for the NEX... The new mount is call E-mount instead of the A-mount use for all the Alpha's camera... But fret not because an adapter is being develop... The adapter enables the NEX to use normal A-mount Sony or Minolta lens... Thinking about the NEX with Carl Zeiss or G-lens is enough to make my knees weak!!!


Back view of the camera... The design is very clean but I prefer my camera to have more shortcut buttons to ease usage...



Top view of the camera with the standard kit lens... The lens is a real beauty...


The NEX-5 with the 16mm F2.8 pancake lens...


Currently only two lens will be available... The 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 and 16mm F2.8 pancake lens... The 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 lens will be available later this year...


The Sony NEX-5 compare to Panasonic Lumix GF-1... See how much smaller the Sony is...


The top view of both cameras... I prefer the GF-1 because of the mode dial... I like camera with mode dial!!! It makes life so much easier...
