The New Sony NEX-5N Digital Camera: What you Need to Know

Get to grips with the new Sony NEX-5N DSLR compact digital camera.

Looking for a lightweight digital camera that creates excellent photographs and full HD video? The Sony NEX-5N, with 16.1 megapixels and Full HD 50p video could be the right choice for you.

Sony NEX-5N digital camera

The Sony NEX-5N camera boasts the world’s fastest release time lag with super-fast responsive autofocus. The release time lag is just 0.02 seconds: the fastest of any interchangeable lens camera in the world.

Improving on the NEX-5

Sony also claim that it is step up on the predecessor, the Sony NEX-5, as it has better still image and HD video quality. Image size in pixels are: Wide: horizontal 12416 x 1856 (23M), vertical 5536 x 2160 (12M), standard: horizontal 8192 x 1856 (15M), vertical 3872 x 2160 (8.4M).

The device looks great and is styled in tough, light magnesium alloy, so it is extremely light: it is just 23.3mm at the slimmest point.

For those of you who like the techy aspects of how digital cameras work, here are the details: the camera’s Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor with 16.1 effective megapixel resolutions is partnered by a specially-optimised version of the powerful BIONZ image processing engine. What does this mean exactly? Essentially you can expect to see exceptionally clean, crisp images.

Sensitivity is also the highest possible for mirror-less interchangeable lens cameras in the NEX-5N, boosted as it is to ISO 25600 standards. Handheld shooting in low light conditions should still leave you with very high quality footage.

Shoot full high definition video

Perhaps one of the most impressive things about the new NEX-5N is that you can also shoot Full HD movies in high-quality stereo surround with the device. A faster readout from the sensor increases the maximum frame rate to 60 fps over the previous 30 fps of the older model.  Photographers can also enjoy full control over exposure, when shooting video, with Programme, Aperture/Shutter Priority and all-Manual modes (PASM) – just like a DSLR camera.

The camera has a 7.5 cm Xtra Fine LCD screen that angles up to 80° up or 45º down for easy viewing in any shooting position.

A bugbear for many photographers is the glare that can be created by on screen reflections, Sony claim to have minimised this with the introduction of TruBlack technology, designed to dramatically reduces on-screen reflections. The new Photo Creativity Touch interface should also ensure that it is easy to review and adjust photographs; films and camera settings with ease, too.
