SonySony NEX-5 system camera review : Following Panasonic, Olympus and Samsung, Sony has also joined the road of the small system cameras. The interest in such compact camera systems is big, but strangely enough, the answer to this success was a long time coming by big names such as Canon, Nikon and Sony. We had to wait until the start of this year, when Sony showed the press a prototype camera, and then we knew that also Sony had joined the party. The expectations of what Sony was to produce were also big; in any case, it had to make us forget about the previous small camera systems.

Review Sony NEX 5 system camera
When we first saw the prototype at the PMA 2010, our first reaction was positive, but quickly questions surfaced. And those questions were actually due to the fact that the prototype only showed very little; it did not yet have a clear identity, so to speak. The Sony NEX-5’s final design is very clear and also reminds us of previous Cybershot cameras. The Sony NEX-5 has similarities to the Sony F505, an advanced Cybershot mega zoom camera from 1999. It had a rounder finish then, with a fixed lens and a clearly larger/heavier format, but the whole design appears to have been the forerunner of the Sony NEX-5.

Sony NEX review - Camera settings
During the press event in which the Sony NEX-5 was officially introduced, it quickly became clear that Sony is aiming the NEX-5 at the group of users that are looking to move a step up from their compact camera. After having worked with the Sony NEX-5 for a little while, it appears from the user interface and the layout of the menu, that indeed especially the automatic functions are highlighted. The camera’s main menu is divided into six categories that almost without an exception need to be entered in order to change the camera settings. The settings dial that we know from the DSLR or even Micro Four Thirds cameras has been included virtually in the main menu. If you want to ‘turn’ the dial in order to choose different settings, you have to go into the menu.

Sony NEX-5 review
The Sony NEX-5 will be available worldwide in June in different kit compositions. Since the preview of the prototype in February at the PMA 2010, the progress has been quick, and it is surprising that Sony will have the Sony NEX-5 in stores far before the start of the IFA and Photokina. We were able to test the Sony NEX-5 for a while on practical as well as technical aspects in our DIWA lab on Madeira. The theory and practice form a balanced end result for the following Sony NEX review.
