The Sony NEX-5N Camera

Real Estate Agent with Hendersonville NC Relocation

Well, I did a short review of the Sony NEX-5N Camera a few days ago and promised an update, then fell sick. So I am just getting back to finishing up with some more news about the Sony NEX-5N camera I bought. 

I took some photo's for a local agent here in Hendersonville and took the time to do some experimenting. Since the camera comes with an 18-55 mm lense, I wanted to see if I could get more of a kitchen in it. I really liked the results. Kitchen shot with 18mm Sony NEX 5N

Also, I was testing the flash. The light in the kitchen was not working and the flash did a good job. The flash comes as an attachement and screws in the top of the camera, but it is an easy on and off set up. I like it. And it works as bounce light, so the hot spots are not as hot.  

The Living Room in this unit is huge and I think it shows the size well.

The flash has several settings and I chose the "Fill Flash". The images have true color and need little in the way of 'fixing'. 

The outside of the unit really looks great. I was excited with the clarity. I can crop it to 1/4 the size and still see a very sharp image.

All in all I am very happy with my Sony NEX-5N camera and look forward to more learning with it.

I am going to try and see if there are any other settings for the inside. I think I would like even sharper images and less contrast. I am sure there are more settings to chose from that will make them better. 

Has anyone else used the Sony NEX-5N camera? I would be curious to see how you are using it!

The Sony NEX series are some really great cameras! We just ordered the Sony NEX-7 and are just waiting for it to arrive - looking at your photos is making us impatient to get our hands on it! Great photos and blog post!

I am really enjoying the Sony NEX-5. I wish I had known there was a #7 out, I would have ordered that rather than the 5. But I am so happy with this one that I don't mind, now that I am using it. Sonia, let me know how you like the 7!

Bud and Beth- I am learning more and more about this camera every time I use it. It has been so long since I have had this many choices, it is almost overwhelming, but I am continuing to play with the settings. 

JaneAnne- The condo from the outside does look strong and stately. I got some really good outside images. 

Thanks for the posts everyone!
