Editor's Review

An upgrade to the NEX-5, the 5N continues Sony's mirrorless line with a newer 16 megapixel sensor. As with all the NEX's, reviews have been very positive. That sensor is really quite good in low light and, as with all Sonys with CMOS sensors, the NEX-5N does 1080p video at 60fps and 10fps continuous stills. If you're looking for a capable, DSLR-quality camera in a compact package, the NEX-5N is a great place to start. The lens lineup is still relatively small but Sony has promised more lens releases soon. For more external controls and a much higher resolution sensor, check out the NEX-7.

Sony NEX-5N Reviews

Sony NEX-5N Reviews by Digital Camera-HQ Users

Over the past thirty years, Sony has been a leader in the consumer electronics industry. Sony produces cameras that are perfect for casual users, hobbyists, and professional photographers through dedicating themselves to using the latest technology with a sleek and minimal style, resulting in an end product of the highest quality.

The Newest Sony Digital Camera Innovation

Sony announced the release of the DSC-RX1, its latest camera, in September 2012. As indicated by Sony, this is the world's first full-frame compact digital camera. A 24.3 megapixel full-frame sensor attached to a capable 35mm f2 lens makes this a very desirable camera. This camera that fits in your pocket produces professional-quality photos in a comparatively small package.

Two of the finest digital cameras by Sony of 2012 as indicated by consumer ratings include the following:

* Sony Cybershot HX30V: This Sony digital camera is capable of great photos and video in a very compact yet versatile package ideal for someone on the go. The 18.2 megapixel camera is known for its fast performance, including full HD video capture and extremely fast continuous burst mode, on top of features like a GPS tracker.
* Sony Cybershot HX200V: Its fast burst mode and extremely large 35x optical zoom has resulted in this camera being rated as one of Sony's best digital cameras by consumers. The lack of RAW capture makes it quite apparent that Sony is intending this camera for a market that's more amateur than a lot of the competition. The HX200's image quality has been rated from good to excellent by Sony digital camera reviews, with the video quality being among the best you can get.

Sony has a vast array of digital cameras suitable for photographers of any skill level, and reviews of most of the cameras offered by Sony can be found on this site. You will be totally happy with the end result regardless of which Sony digital camera you decide on.
