Get the interchangeable lens camera of your dreams capable of capturing astonishing 16.1MP stills or full 1920x1080 HD video in about half the size as its DSLR counterparts. It's the interchangeable lens camera that fits in your pocket. Enjoy Full HD 1080/60p or 24p movies, astounding low-light pictures, continuous shooting up to 10 fps, incredible panorama shots and a 3.0-inch tiltable Live View touch screen LCD. Use the Photo Creativity Touch interface to easily adjust images on the go or try out Sweep Panorama for incredible landscapes in 2D or 3D. Answer a call to creativity with the included E-mount 18-55mm zoom lens, ideal for capturing close-up portraits and vast landscapes.

DSLR quality in your pocket - This is the world's smallest interchangeable lens digital still camera using a large APS-C size sensor (as of Aug 2011). The removal of the conventional mirror box and viewfinder results in a camera body that is about half the size and weight of a standard DSLR camera.

Full HD movie shooting 60p/24p - Record Full HD 1920x1080 video in a variety of frame rates from 60p for super smooth action to 24p for a more cinematic feel.1 The NEX-5N utilizes the AVCHD codec, the industry standard for high quality HD video capture, as well as the MP4 codec for easy upload to the web due to it's smaller file size.

Object Tracking AF via Touch LCD - Object Tracking AF can lock onto a specified object and maintain focus even as the subject moves. This hassle-free mode allows unpredictable subjects to stay in focus even while zooming. Letting you concentrate on the scene and composition without having to worry about focus. The subject on which to lock focus is easily selected via the touch screen or the center button of the control wheel.

11 Picture Effect modes - There are 11 picture effects modes to choose from: Posterization (Color, B/W), Pop Color, Retro Photo, Partial Color (Red, Green, Blue, Yellow), Soft High-key, High Contrast Monochrome, Toy Camera (Normal, Cool, Warm, Green, Magenta), Soft Focus, HDR Painting, Rich-tone Monochrome, and Miniature. Each is unique and each gives you a new and exciting way to make your images and videos pop.

Sweep Panorama Mode - Capture expansive landscapes automatically. Press the shutter, sweep vertically or horizontally. The camera does the rest, continuously shooting images and stitching them together. Up to 23 MP image size. Up to 202 degrees maximum sweep angle (16mm focal length).

P/A/S/M operating modes - The NEX-5N offers a full range of controls for video and still shooting from the beginner's iAUTO mode to P/A/S/M: Program, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority and Manual. On-screen prompts help you refine your skills, build your confidence and exercise greater creative control.

BIONZ image processor - The brain of the camera is a refined version of Sony's BIONZ image processor. Its chroma noise reduction delivers high-resolution, low-noise photos even at ISO 25600 sensitivity. Also enables fast processing for up to 10 fps continuous shooting of data-intensive 16.1 megapixel images, 2D/3D Sweep Panorama modes and 6 image layering.

Phase Detect AF for E-mount bodies w/ adapter - Both the LA-EA1 and EA2 adapters allows you to attach A-mount lenses to your E-mount camera. However, the LA-EA2 is the world's first adapter to leverage Sony's exclusive Translucent Mirror Technology to provide super fast and accurate Phase Detection AF as well. The LA-EA2 adapter has a translucent mirror built-in between the two mounts that directs a small portion of the light to the phase detection AF sensor in the bottom of the unit.

Stamina battery power for up to 430 shots - Take up to 430 shots on a single charge with Sony lithium ion Stamina battery power. Sony's InfoLITHIUM battery system enables you to see the percent of power remaining, so you can keep shooting in confidence.

16.1 MP Exmor APS HD CMOS image sensor - You get incredible detail and gorgeous enlargements. Thanks to the APS-C sensor size and Sony Exmor APS HD CMOS technology, the camera achieves high resolution with no penalty in low-light sensitivity or sensor noise.

Tiltable 3.0" Touch LCD - Sony's 3.0" Xtra Fine LCD monitor has 921K dots for superb resolution. The TruBlack screen includes a special resin layer to suppress internal reflections, increasing contrast compared to conventional LCDs. Sunny Weather mode boosts visibility even further in bright sunlight. Tilts down 45? and up 80? to frame high- and low-angle shots that would otherwise be hit-or-miss.

Optional XGA OLED viewfinder - The optional FDA-EV1S OLED Tru-Finder? offers a large, bright and wide-view of the scene. With high resolution 2.395K dot, and unprecedented speed, contrast and color accuracy, the FDA-EV1S provides an extraordinary view.

3D Sweep Panorama Mode - Capture vast scenic vistas and 16:9 shots in spectacular 3D. As you sweep across the panorama, the camera records separate right-eye and left-eye images that make landscapes come alive on your 3D television4. Records both JPEG and MPO file formats.

Auto HDR - High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography captures more scene contrast than a single exposure can handle by combining the best highlight detail from one shot and the best shadow detail from another for one incredible shot. Until recently, you needed a computer and editing software. Sony builds HDR in. Handles severe backlighting and other high-contrast scenes. Captures in a split second. (Recommended for still subjects.)

iAUTO mode - Unifies and simplifies Sony intelligent technologies. Takes advantage of Intelligent Scene Recognition, Face Detection technology, and Optical SteadyShot image stabilization without leaving auto mode so you always get the best shot.

Accepts Sony E-mount lenses - Compatible with Sony's E-mount series of smaller, lighter lenses designed specifically for a compact interchangeable lens cameras. Opens up a world of creative options.

HDMI output - Enjoy HD movies and stunning still images on a compatible HDTV.12 The camera includes an HDMI output.

Up to 10 fps shooting - Capture the decisive moment in sports and get the ideal baby photo. Up to 10 fps continuous shooting at full 16.1 MP resolution. Standard continuous shooting speeds vary based upon shooting conditions and memory card speeds.

Photo Creativity Touch - The Photo Creativity interface enables you to easily enjoy the creative expression through direct photographic control in an easy to use interface. Changes can be combined/removed and viewed in real time on the LCD making it a breeze to make adjustments.

World's shortest release time lag (0.02 sec) - In photography, shutter lag, or release time, is the delay between triggering the shutter by fully depressing the shutter button and when the photograph is actually recorded. By initiating the exposure electronically instead of with the traditional shutter mechanism, release time on the NEX-5N is reduced to just 20 milliseconds - helping you to capture the decisive moment.

Peaking AF display - The Peaking AF display makes precise manual focusing much easier by highlighting the edges that are in focus in your choice of three colors ( white, red, or yellow). This is especially helpful during macro or portrait photography where your focal plane can make or break your shot.

6-image layering - The camera leverages the large, APS-C image sensor and captures six images in a fraction of a second. The camera then combines the data from the 6 different images to create a single image. This method is used to control blur in Anti-Motion Blur mode or to get cleaner, sharper nighttime pictures in Hand-held Twilight mode.

Intelligent Auto Focus - Pre-focuses as you compose the shot, further reducing focusing time to a bare minimum.

Dynamic Range Optimizer (DRO) - Dynamic Range Optimizer improves results with backlit subjects and recovers details hidden in shadows. Settings include Auto, Level with a choice of five operating levels and Off.

25-point Auto Focus - 25 sensors cover a very wide area of the scene, for accurate focusing even when the subject is far from the center of the frame.

5 out of 5 stars   SLR quality at half the size
By Lennbob (Seattle, WA) September 22, 2011
Review submitted for Sony NEX5NK/S - NEX-5N with 18-55mm, 16mm f2.8 (Silver) Ultimate Bundle (E2SNNEX5NKS)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Image Quality, Touch Screen, Soft key user options, Solid build, Light, Sensor size, Interchangeable lenses, Compact Size
Cons: No rear lens cap, Limited lens selection, No body cap, No manual lens control
Other Comments: Before purchasing the NEX-5N, I considered the Canon EOS 60D and Rebel T3i, and the Nikon D5100. My last SLR of any kind was the Canon AE-1; in comparison, all three of these models were bulky and rather heavy. Just handling the 60D in the store for a few minutes caused my hand to tire and nearly cramp up. I then began looking at the Sony NEX-5. Slightly lower pixel count (as a graphic designer, image size is important to me), but lighter, much easier to handle, and not so huge as to call attention to the fact that it is a more advanced camera. Oh, and a little over half the price of the 60D. Almost as soon as I'd begun considering the Sony, Sony released the NEX-C3, and announced the NEX-5N and NEX-7. While I would have loved to have the higher pixel count (and thus larger image size) of the NEX-7, it was more than I wanted to spend. So, I decided on the NEX-5N. The next step was to find a decent bundle at a decent price, particularly since I wanted both the 16mm prime lens and the 18-55mm zoom. Beach Camera turned out to be the only retailer offering such a bundle, which also included such extras as a memory card, spare battery, and (a particularly nice touch) basic filter set (UV, Polarizer, FLD). The camera has so far been a joy to use. Artistic merits aside, I already see a huge increase in image quality compared to the Olympus SP-510UZ that I had been using. Recovery time between shots (as the images are written to the memory card) is quick, even though I've been shooting RAW+JPEG, and changing lenses is quick and simple. The small size of the camera makes it easy to carry from place to place. And if you ever ask someone to take your picture, that person won't be intimidated by the size/shape the way they might with a standard DSLR. The construction of the camera and lenses feels solid, not plasticky. The only real complaint I have about the lenses is that the aperture cannot be manually controlled; you have to set it on the camera. (It's actually not a huge deal, but it would be nice to not have to interrupt the shot in order to turn the control dial on the camera.) The touch screen is useful, though sometimes I forget I've enabled it. Especially nice is that it isn't overly sensitive; I have yet to accidentally do something I hadn't intended because of the screen. (I can't say the same for the buttons, though, since I have large fingers.) There aren't many E-mount lenses available yet (I think there will be a total of 5 or 6 available by year's end), but a number of companies are making inexpensive adapters that enable the use of lenses originally designed for other mounts. Of course, none of these adapters have the electrical connections required for automatic functions, so apertures and focus will need to be set manually. Which is something that I'm sure a lot of folks will actually prefer. Either way, the availability of these adapters means not necessarily having to give up older lenses. I haven't been using the camera long enough yet to have a good feel for battery life, but, so far, it looks like I'll get about 450 images per charge (even with the touch screen function on), which I think is about what the specifications indicate. Overall, I'm very happy with this camera so far. In the past, I've been wary of Sony products, and I wasn't all that happy with the Minolta digital camera I used to have, but I think Sony have got this one right. I'm looking forward to exploring the capabilities of this camera.
