The Sony Alpha NEX-5 is the flagship model of the company’s all-new mirrorless camera system. The smallest and lightest offering in its class, the NEX-5 boasts a 14.2-megapixel APS-C sensor coupled with finely tuned interchangeable lens options. Excellent low-light performance, HD video recording and a unique Sweep Panorama mode make the NEX-5 an excellent choice for photo enthusiasts and demanding shutterbugs alike.
Still photography just got a major upgrade. By downloading a free firmware upgrade from Sony, Nex-3 and Nex-5 owners who have been confined to capturing pictures in two dimensions (width and height) can add depth. Viewed on a big-screen 3D TV from Sony, Panasonic or Samsung, among other manufacturers, the third dimension can elicit jaw-dropping reactions from viewers. I should know. I just witnessed my first 3D slide show.
Hot on the heals of today’s NEX-5 and NEX-3, Sony has announced the development of an interchangeable lens HD camcorder. While specs have yet to be released, Sony confirms that the cam will sport an APS-C CMOS sensor and full compatibility with the latest E-mount lenses. Sony A-series and Minolta glass will work via an adapter.
