Sony’s Alpha NEX-5 has a sensor the size of an SLR, packed into a camera that is half the size. Related Article: nyti.ms
OMG!!! this is AWESOME!!
wowww! Nice images! have you tried time-lapsed photography with your NEX? You can use a wireless remote like this one to do it: Tempus NEX, sold at: tempus.bymac.org
Check it out!
@TechTalkGuy Lets shake some salt on it and bite off the lens. That would make it compact! It may start not good looking with that bite “…but it does not matter …!” it became a compact. Well, it may won’t take a good pictures then “…but who really cares..!.” you’ll get “what the world always wanted” – big chip, bite size!
@TechTalkGuy The Powershot S95 is a camera with a completely different purpose, which is strictly point and shoot. It is not a DSLR and does not claim to be. It gives the quality of a DSLR, with the simplicity of a point and shoot. And with the pancake lens, it can easily fit into your pocket. I’m not trying to change your taste, but you have completely failed to see the purpose of these cameras.
I bought one and love the camera!!!
Bright sunlight at certain angles makes the LCD useless, with auto-focus you can shield the LCD at needed, but when manually focusing… it’s not going to happen. However, overall I’m pretty happy with the screen. Its ability to pivot has opened up some interesting shooting positions and opportunities. Ultimately, people need to handle the camera to see if they like it, is the form factor doesn’t immediately jump out at you as a benefit for you, there’s no reason to consider this type of camera.
Firmware 3.0 has solved a lot of peeves with this camera for me. The problem for me was all the button pressing to change ISO. The new firmware allows you to customize two of the buttons to bring up to 4 more functions within easy access. I’m now pretty happy with the camera’s functionality.
The Canon PowerShot S95 is on my radar — pocket friendly and powerful.
I seriously considered the Sony NEX-5, but not after some research.
The camera is not tiny when you add the lens.
It DOES matter — I can’t slip it in my pocket.
A pocket friendly camera that you can take with you everywhere you go does not require extra lens or other add-ons.
If I wanted to do all of that, I would opt for a real DSLR, not some cheap hybrid wannabe.
You either go for it or not.
Firmware 3.0 is coming out this month, which will allow you to customise some of the buttons on the camera’s body, so that will help.
@tanhockjun mechanically, it is a SL but no R
Or what about a button on the lens itself?
its not a slr its a mirrorless interchangable lens camera
ur order is ready ????
they have to improve the user interface… there is no reason for 9 steps to change to manual focus. they can easier put virtual buttons on the screen!!! they need to take a lesson from Apple.
what a gas bag
Very nice way to explain and every entertaining
It does, it is at 25 or 30 p, then interlaced after/during recording. So you could easily deinterlace it if you wish to.
A shame they haven’t included the P option though
@momoz88 it does take 1080p video
@UKMeta4 Sony started this route a long time ago with the f828 and the R1
well…… it’s not a “SLR”
“the smile shutter thing” lmao!
@momoz88 it takes 1080i which is better
