  • I had this camera with me during the winter holidays, and I thought that it would be a good idea to share my opinion about it for the people who are interested in buying one
  • I wanted something that was a little bit better than a compact camera, because I don’t consider that I a am ready for a full DSLR
  • I recharged the battery twice in a period of two weeks and I took I think more than 500 photos
  • I recommend using a plastic cover for the display, they are very cheap and it is totally worth it
  • The only problem that I have with the display is that it gets very dirty, very quick

      I am back with a review of Sony NEX-5. I had this camera with me during the winter holidays, and I thought that it would be a good idea to share my opinion about it for the people who are interested in buying one. I wanted something that was a little bit better than a compact camera, because I don’t consider that I a am ready for a full DSLR.

      Maybe you are wondering why I didn’t get an entry level model from Canon or something


      like Sony Alpha. I would have to answer that I really liked the Sony NEX-5 after the researches that I have done.

      Currently I have de 16 mm lens. In vacation I only used the 18-55 mm lens.

      When I unboxed the Sony NEX-5 I was surprised because of the weight that is very comparable with a compact camera. I didn’t have any problems carrying around even though you can’t put it in your pocket.

      Sony provides you with a strap to go on the unit.


      • I have to say that I really hate the provided strap because you can’t really adjust it the way you want, but at least is free.

        The battery life on the Sony NEX-5 is pretty good. I recharged the battery twice in a period of two weeks and I took I think more than 500 photos.

        So I have to say that the battery is excellent, at least for my needs. The display is absolutely wonderful.

        I recommend using a plastic cover for the display, they

        are very cheap and it is totally worth it. The only problem that I have with the display is that it gets very dirty, very quick.

        I was surprised by how fast the Sony NEX-5 is, you don’t have to wait a lot from the moment when you start the camera to the moment you can actually shoot a photo. The quality of the photos are quite good, depends what types of cameras have you used before, but for this price range I was totally satisfied.
