Review – Sony NEX 5

Review – Sony NEX 5

Features There are a decent amount of features that pack this little Nex 5 body. One of the feature’s I liked the most was the Sweep Panorama which allows you to you take Panorama Pictures simply by pressing the shutter button and moving your camera in the direction of the on-screen arrow. I experimented a fair amount with this and concluded that it works really well. If you have a 3D enabled tv at home, the Sony Nex 5 can also take Sweep Panorama Pictures in 3D. Since I don’t have a 3D tv, I was unable to test it out properly. You can also experiment a little with exposure and Shutter/Aperture Priority if you want some interesting effects with your pictures.


Let’s not forget that this camera is capable of taking shots of up to 14.1 Mega-Pixels, which is quite good, and because it is a DSLR, it actually takes better camera quality pics than normal Digital Cameras. Below are some examples of sweep panorama pictures I took (you can click to expand each picture).
