Sony Nex-5 Mirrorless Camera Test: The Future Begins Today

Igor Narizhny

The quiet evolutionary growth that started in the world of photo equipment after the final victory of digital over film suddenly came to an end, and it looks like we have interesting times ahead of us again. The Reason for this is the Major Breakthroughs in Camera Construction That Happened in the Last Couple of Years. Most Notable of these Two: Recording Slr Videos and Releasing Mirrorless Cameras. If the first one being by and large a separate from photography has so far only lead to the appearance of a new layer of “hobbyists” and has widened the opportunities of professional video, the second one can cause a deep plowing over of the photographic market and, perhaps, Will Soon Put us all before the New Choice.

The Sony Nex-5 Mirrorless Camera

What is a ‘Mirror -less’ Camera?

The Cameras of New Class Cuse Great Interest AMONG PhotoGraphers: According to Statistics of the LEADING World PhotoGRAPHY SITS 4 OUTS ABOUT MIRRORA CAMERAS ON THE AVEVERAG.

Of course, manufacturers do not ignore them either: in the 3 months from March to May, 4 of the 7 major cameras announced by manufacturers for release, non-smooth including the heroine of the current test Sony Alpha NEX-5 and its younger sister Sony Alpha Nex-3 . The Apparent Success of the Novelty Has Even Sparked Rumors ABOUT THE IMMINENT DEMISE of the DSLR, Incidentally, WE HEARD MORE THE ONENCE.

What is “Mirrorless”?? Their Main Idea Which IS Usual for Great Inventions Was on the Surface: Put a DSLR Sensor in A Compact Camera.

Or vice versa, when the rapid development of computer “brains” DSLR allowed the use of SLR sensor in Live View mode, constantly reading the image and displaying it on the screen – to throw out the SLR bulky SLR unit for lack of use. In General, Thwo Lines of Progress, Like Tank Wedges on the Front, Finally Came Together and Radically Changed the Overall Balance of Power.

IF You look at the Novelty from the DSLR SIDE, the removal of the mirror along with prism and viewfinder gives the user by and laarge one bonus – An Incredible CompactNes. And Also Lightness and Imperceptibiry by Shooting and High Mechanical ReliaBility There Much Less Moving Parts . And Compactness is the Main REQUREMENT FOR STYLISH CAMERAS. SO it Adds up to Quite a Lot.

The Mirror Less Cameras Have More Advantage Over DSLRS, Throw Not All Similar One Found on Models with the Live View Mode: The Constant “Passing Through The Matrix” OF THEM. e. Like digitizing it before you take a picture, it allows you to apply a lot of functions, like compacts, before you take a picture: face detection and others, the number of which is growing at an uncontrollable rate.

The Number of these Functions Is Growing At Annstoppable Rate. “Mirror” Photoographers are usualli not too -aware of these functions, but it is crus that avditis, IT does not makes, but be switched, Is aa switched, Is aa switched, Is aa switcheded. Besides, There SOME BONUSES Understandable for “DSLR’s” – For Example, More Accurate Auto White Balance in a Complex Illumination.

If to judge from the point of view of compacts, the novelty offers two bonuses, and each of them is, as they say, give it all – and not enough: full “mirror” image quality, with all its inherent gradations of tone, Volume, Depth and Plasticity, Low Noise, Absolutly Working High ISO Values, etc. D. And in Addition The Possibility to Change the Optics.

And all that in a Familiar Compact Body AdmitTedly, The Engineers Still Have to work on the Compactness of the Interchangeable Lenses . In General, if a Quick Glance on the Merits Inchert in a New Class of Cameras, The We CanDerstand Why The “Mirror -less” Cause Such a Stir.

The pioneers of the revolution were Panasonic and Olympus though they built their cameras on smaller Micro Four Thirds sensors , then they were joined by Samsung and so Sony entering the market as the second echelon had to offer something special to the public. But The Company is used to it: just look at the unpredented conquest of the Mirror Market with “Alphas” in the Shortest Possible Time . The Company Has Coped with this Task by Testing The Latest Sony Alpha Nex-5 Quite Brilliantly.

The Sony Nex-5 Mirrorless Camera

Appe their

The Novelty is not Just Compact – it is Significantly Smaller and Lighter than Any Competing Camera, Including Micro Four Thirds Systems, Whose Matrices are One and a Half Times ! Smaller in Area.

In addition, it is although this is a matter of taste, but I doubt many will argue made in an extremely spectacular design: If Olympus chose a successful but most likely short-lived retro styling, and the other predecessors don’t seem to have bothered with design at all, repeating established solutions, Sony has developed an absolutely innovative, just like the system itself, convincingly brutal minimalist style: straight lines, no rounding, nothing extra – and a huge, out of contour body mount.

The Camera is Easy to Hold Wen Shooting, The Front Tab Abo ABOVE The Battle Compartment, Althrow Not to Too Large, Provides a Firm Grip. The Housing Is Made of Magnesium Allloy, Which Emphasizes The Class and Durability of the Camera.

Unusually, The Design of the Flash Included in the Standard Camera Set – It is External, Very Small and is mounted in the Accessories Slot on the Top Panel, Which is Usupally Closed. More Jack Can be Used to Install An External Microphone Which, Incidentally, Along with a Tripod is Accessory for Good Quality Movies . SINCE THE FLASH Cannot BE Ussed Video, “Accessory Conflict” Is Eliminated.

In general, the entire design of the camera is carefully thought out, which is especially important given its miniaturization the developers did not have not that the right, but rather room for error.

It’s designed to be an iconic gadget like the Leica or Apple’s creations and is meant to be a long and pleasant process of getting to know and discovering the nice little things, whether it’s the thumb rest for the video record button and the index finger rest for The Shutter, The Rubberized Back Panel and the Unusual Joypad, EVERYTHING THAT COULD WARM The Soul of A PhotoGrapher for Years.

There are also retro features in the design: a touching toggle switch and aluminum lens barrels, which in the eyes of the young will once again emphasize style and overall brutality, and an experienced photographer will remind those days when aperture priority in a DSLR was unforgiving News.

Mirrorless Camera Sony Nex-5

Sensor and Processor

But The Most Important Thing, of Course, Not outside, but Intest Is The Latest HD CMOS-MATRIX Exmor Third Generation, The SIZE of APS-C and A Resolution of 14.2 Megapixels, and the New Processor Bionz, Also Third Generation. Here it should be noted that, along with high-profile innovations such as the removal of the mirror in the production of photographic equipment is a constant and intense, but not too flaunted work on improving the computer and calculating part.

This Includes Improvements in Noise Reduction, Digital Image Processing, and All Sorts of “Smart” Features, Among Others. The Image from the New Generations of Cameras, Especially Those Shot at High Sensitivities I.E., for the first time in a digital Camera, does not refresh the sensor and sages not retain its Brightness. e. That Undergoes Substantial Processing Is Noticeably Better than It Was A Few Years Ago.

For Reasons of General Compactness, The Sensor in this Novelty Was not Stabilized, and the Optical Stabilization System Moved Into the Lens. There is a System of Protection Against Dust Dust-Repellent Coating and High-Frequency Vibration, Which Isamemely Relvant When Using Interchangeable Optics Optics.

The Sony Nex-5 Mirrorless Camera

LCD Screen

Huge and High-Quality Display with 920k Resolution. The Pixels Cover Almost The Entire Back Panel and, as You’d Expect with Such a Tiny Camera, It Tilts 80 Degrees Up and 45 Degrees Down. It “provokes” the photographer to shoot from waist level, seeing from above, with two eyes, as in the old days through the viewfinder-chute, with the only difference that the screen is not afraid of direct sunlight and keeps the brightness and richness Of the Picture in Difficult Conditions.

Such A Shot Is More Comfortable than the Standard Method for Compacts, When The Camera is Held in Outstretched Hands, and Draws Less Attends. The only caveat: all this conveence extends only to shooting Horizontally.

The Screen IS Made by Sony’s Proprietary Clear Photo LCD Plus and Tru Black, Which ALSO Used In Sony Photo Frames, Providing Exceptional Image Quality.

In general, the subjective impression is that the screen is very easy to use, almost devoid of inertia of the picture and serves perfectly for menu navigation, and at the same time teaches the photographer: in the camera memory there are dozens of tips and explanations Of the Principiples of Different Modes and Camera Functions.

The Control

Here We Come to the Area Were Achievements in One Thing Into Difficulties in Another. Sony Has Made Such Advances In Miniaturization in Developing New Generation Cameras, With Displays SO Big that’s Very Little Room Left the Controls on the Body.

If you subtract the buttons with the most important fixed functions switch on, shutter release, video recording and playback then you’re left with the hardest minimum which is a rotating joypad and three buttons one of which is used to confirm SET in the joypad center.

EVEN AMONG The Simplest Compacts There Are Few Models with Such Minimalism. Interestingly, the functions of the remaining two buttons are not marked on the body: they perform different actions in different modes, and each time clarification, which of them is responsible for what is shown on the display. Actually The Most Important Control is the Display Itself.

The Control Organization of Any Camera Is Primarily a Question of the Camera Philosophy, Its Purpose and Shooting Style. It’s Clear That Sony Sees The Nex-Series as the Next Evolutionary STEP FOR THE AMATEUR PhotOGRAPER, WHO HAS OUTGROWN THE COMPACTS. Accordingly Organized and Management – SO that it was as USAL FOR THEEERDAYAS OWNER of A Compact and VOT CAUSE DISE DISE DISE DISE DISE DISE DISE DISE DISE DISE DISE DISE DISE DISE DISE DISE DISE DISE DISE DISE DISE DISE DISE DISE DISE DISE DIS.

HENCE THE ExpEcted Emphasis on the Automatic Modes, Which, AdmitTedly, Are Convenent and Well-Though -out. The Easiest and Most Natural Thing to do is to Install the Advanced Iauto and Forget ABOUT THE FINER POINTS OF CONTROL, TRUSTING THE CAMERAS AUTOMATICS AND FOCUSINING ON THE SUBS. There are some Control Possibilites Here too, but not Many: it is the shift of the Program, I.E. The Functions of the Control Are Very Important for the Audiovisual. e. Exposure Compensation Not as an Incomprehensible Figure, But with an Indication of the Result – The Rotating Joystick in this Adjusts The Depth of Field.

Each action and each scene program which here is not an overwhelming number, as in some compacts, but only seven, but their purpose is immediately understandable is accompanied by on-screen tips, so that the camera at the same time and holds some “master Class.

For Those Who Alread Mastered the Basics of Conscious Shooting, There All Professional Modes with the Necessary Adjustments. Of Course, The Nex-5 IS Inferior to A Reporter’s DSLR in Terms of Speed ​​of Change, But Anything Else Would Be too Amazing. In the Course of the Test Shooting, We Even Shot Sports in Aperture Priority Mode with Exposure Compensation, Even Thumbh this IS Hardly one.

The Menu is A Little Bit Unusual and Eveony Will I have to get used to it: Both Those Whoot with A Compact and Those Who is a DSLR. It’s Undeniably Beautiful and Informative, But as for Speed, I Wish Sony Engineers Had Come Up with Someting Else that Worked Faster.

At the same time, management, as already said, is a matter of philosophy, and here we need feedback, most likely now the company’s specialists will closely monitor the feedback on the forums and adjust their innovations. In General, We can lie we’ve Achieved a Satisfactory Balance Between the Simplicity and Efficiency of Fully Automatic Modes, Necessary for Owners of Compacts, And the Posibilts.

The Mirrorless Camera Sony Nex-5


For the New Class, The Company Developed a CompleTly New E Mount with A Fully Electronic Interface. It’s not Directly Compatible with Slr “Alpha” Optics, But They Canstalled Through An Adapter Though Autofocus Won ‘ . Three Lenses are Available for the New System So Far: The Discrete Wide-Angle 16/2.8 EQ. 24mm, a regular zoom 18-55/3.5-5.6 with Optical Stabilizer and R Regular Superzoom 18-200/3.5-6.3, ALSO Stabilized.

In Addition, Two Wide-Angle Converters are Available for the 16/2.8, One Reducing the Effective Focal Length of the Lens to 12 Mm EQ. 18mm, The Other – Fichai – Gives Even More Coverage with Characteristic Distortions.

Obviously, this is just the first Swallow and the Line of Lenses Will Grow. SHORTER BODY LENGTHS PrOMISE A Wide-Angle Lens That’s More Compact and Has Better Optical Performance than Ordinary Slers.

The Inconvenence of Switches to a New Mount Is Compensated by Its Amazing Possibilities, In Particular, Constant and Silent Focusing Speed ​​Isble for the Fourst Time Time Time! autofocus during Video Shooting. You’ll AGREE THET FOR MANY PEOPLE IT ITSELF WULD Be Reason Enure to Buy A New Camera.


The Novelty of the Camera Can Not only in its Internet Structure, But Also in the Process of Shooting, Which, In Fact, is What All Cameras Are Made For. About the control already mentioned above, but the practical conclusion from the above is the following: in addition to the whole range of usual applications of high-class compact, Sony NEX-5 is excellent for little-notice surrounding genre photography, especially “from The Belly “, with Raized LCD Screen.

In this case, the superzoom 18-200/3,5-6,3 showed good results, and during the shooting, the narrow end of zoom becomes more popular, because even on it the lens gives quite a satisfactory image although, of course , The Zooms of Such a Range Can Not Be Attributed to the Exte-Class Optics . It’s Worth Noting the Very Convincing Performance of the Optical Stabilizer in this Lens.

The Focusing Speed ​​Is Not the Strongest Point of the Mirror -less Cameras AS of Usual Dslrs in Live View Mode Yet, But The New Camera Focuse Fast, AT LeAST NOST AbFERIOR TOSPPPEN. You can be Sure that not only Owners of Compacts of Counse, But Also Dslr Users Will Notice Any Particular InConVeen. The Manual Selection of the Focus Point Is Very Convenent: You Can Select it with the Joypad and Orient it with the Display – Almost Anywhere in the Frame Except the Very Edges.

At the same time you can turn on the function of zoom for accurate focusing, which allows you to use the full potential of the large sensor and interchangeable optics: if you press the appropriate button once more the image is 7-times larger, if you Press Again – 14 -Times, The Third Press Returns The Image to Normal Mode.

AS Alread Mentioned, The Optical Stabilization System Is Implemented in the Lens, Not on the Sensor, Like in Slr “Alpha”. This Has Rather Worked to Its Benefit, In Any Case Pictures in Most Cases Come Out Sharp at Shutter Speeds up to 1/4 Andes 1/3 Sec – A Great Result Result.

Even Shooting Speed ​​is not Bad for a Camera of this Level – 2.3 FPS with Af Constantly On. But with the autofocus switched off the Continous Shooting Speed ​​is as much as 7 fps! So If You Can Anticipate Were to Expect an Interesting Event and Focus on it Beforehand, You Can Be Sure You Won ‘a Big Moment.


The Main Purpose of Any Camera Is to Take Pictures. Except that all cameras have different capabilities, and recent Sony advancements have made it possible to implement some interesting additional features in newer cameras, and the company leaves open the possibility of further revolutionary camera upgrades.

For Example, A New Function Is Announced for this Summer Which Will Be in Installed by Means of Firmware in Already ReleASDE SERIES CAMEIS CAMEIS THE LESS THE THE THEMENSIA. No One Can Explain What Its, Except Very Dedicated Sony Specialists, Who Keep Quiet and Ask to Wait Till Jolyy. Well, The Japanese Giant Also Has a Knack for Intrigue, So Let’s Wait.

Most of the “Smart” Features work on the Basis of Shooting in High-Speed ​​Mode Several Frames in A Row and the Gluing Them Into a Single Image. The Most Striking and Memorable of them All is Sweep Panorama, Which can beghly translated as “Panorama on the Fly. In this mode, the Photoographer Just Passes Hand with the Camera Along the Horizon Line and the Camera Automatically Takes a Series and Blends Them Into Indo Image.

You can set four options for the final size of the panorama resolution from 8 to 22 megapixels these very panoramas are planned to make three-dimensional in summer, and you can view them on Sony TVs, which will be released at the same time . You can sweep the camera with the Camera Held Vertically Or Horizontally, Which Results in a Different Ratio of the Final Image.

BUT Panorama is A Bit Exotic AFTER ALL OR AT LEAST THE FUNCTION IS Absolutly Separate and Self-Sufficient. For everyday shooting other options may be more useful, for example Auto HDR, when the camera takes three shots with a given range of exposure you can rely on the automatic camera, but it is pretty timid about setting the range, and sometimes the HDR result IS not Very Noticeable .

This way you can bring details back into the frame in shadows and highlights that Would Simply Be to too Much Contrast, and Generally Manag. We talked in detail about how this function works in the previous issue when we talked about new Sony Alpha-series cameras and we can now repeat only one conclusion: if done properly this extremely well-implemented and easy-to-use function can become a PowerFul and Expressive Artistic Tool.

Another Intersting ISTEA IS HANDHELD Twilight FUNHELD Twilight AS ITS Related Anti-Motion Blur Function Anti-Motion Blur . IT Shoots Six Frames In Quick Succession and Superimpose Them on Top of Each Other. The Result is Images with Considerably Less Noise than Usual and Clearer.

Image Quality

To Start with The Conclesion, Simply Saying that the Sony Nex-5 Delivers Dslr-Level Image Quality Would Not Be Enure. It Delivers a Very Good, State of the Art MID-RANGE DSLR IMAGE. The Modernity is Apparent Both in the Noise Reduction and in the Quality of the Final Jpeg Image. Particularly Impressive Is the Picture Quality When Shooting at High Sensitivities.

If you look at the frame at 100% magnification on the monitor, and at ISO 3200 the picture is absolutely “good”, and the whole frame without magnification, and at ISO 6400 is quite acceptable in most cases of course, that this is a Matter of Taste, Presisely, Personal Criteria of Quality, But My Own Feeling I Say that ISO 3200 In Sony NEX-5 IS Not Inferior in Image ISO 800 In Slr of Previous Generations .

EVEN THE MAXIMUM SENSITIVITY OF ISO 12,800 is, with Understandable Reservations, Working, IF You Donket the Picture in Large Size and Don’t Look at It Monitor). The quality of noise reduction is most noticeable in the background areas of the image without detail – there are considerably less colored dots than you would expect with such sensitivity, and most of the fine details of the image are preserved.

If we compare with today’s competitors both among mirrorless cameras and among mirrorless models with APS-C sensor we can find a lot of cameras inferior to NEX-5 in imaging quality but we don’t see much better ones, especially at high sensitivity. In general, we must pay tribute to the engineers Sony: over the past couple of years, they significantly, though not raising the noise about it, improved overall image quality in their DSLR models, and considered a novelty continues this trend.


Captoring Video Clips Is Still New For The DSLR, BUT in the World of Compacts It’s A Usual Thing. However, The Large Sensor Offers Unpredented Quality. I mean both the characteristics of the image and the creative possibilities of taking pictures: for example, even with the “kit” optics you can move the area of ​​the sharply imaged space in the depth of the frame, picking up one or the other element Of the Scene from the Blurred Background.

Sony Nex-5 Shoots Video In Full HD Resolution 1920 × 1080 Pixels 1920 × 1080 I AT 60 Fields Per Second and Saves Clips in Avchd Format. As Alread Mentioned, The Camera for The First Time Provides An Acceptable Speed ​​and Quiet Continous Tracking Autofocus in Video.

Autofocus is quite Goods with Fast-Moving Objects it Seems That The Sony Engineers Havy Come Up with Many Innovations in the Control System of Focusing . Besides, you can adjust the autofocus manaally, Which is Probably Even More Important for Video Shooting than Photography.

One more important advantage: during the video shooting the constant exposure measurement and correction take place, and a special silent micromotor in the lens changes illumination of the picture not by jumps, like in the majority of cameras, but smoothly the latest in camera’s firmware is Responsight for this . The Large Sensor Gives Very Good Image Quality Even in Low Light.

The Importance of Video Recording Is Emphasized by A Special Start Button On the Video – Very Fast and Convenent. It Remains to Add that is itself Writes Steereo Sound, But, of Course, A Serious Video Recorder Shoup Buy An External Microphone. After it it’s hard to Think What Else You Can Demand from the Camera to Improve the Quality of Video. All that Remains Is to Improve Oneeself, and the Technique Has Alread Done Its Best.


The new Sony NEX-5 is an exceptionally interesting and promising model, not to mention the intrigue with the announced three-dimensional image during the test not once there was a feeling that here it is, a bright future, flew right into the hands . IT PerForms Its Main Task – To Transfer Habitual Shooting with Handy Compact Cameras to Another LEVEL OF CALLITY – BRILLIANTLY.

But it has other applications: As a seasoned photographer who is used to carrying a heavy case on my shoulder and a two kilogram unit lens and flash are included on my neck, it was a pure pleasure to walk around in my hands and try to hold a nice Weightless Toy that Still Shoots Great Even in “Liquid” Light!

To Shoot Genre Photography Without Standing Out in Public and With attracting Too Much Attend IS an Experience Which is not easy to describe. And That’s withThout Taking Into Account The Features of Video, Which Are No Less That in PhotoGraphy Video IS, AFTER ALL, A Special Area that Deserves Its Own Review . In General, You Can Not Doubt the Novelty Will Find Its GratEful User.

Wegged the Sony Representative Office in New York for the Equipment Provided for the Test.

Althrow The Camera’s Exposure Metering in Mode Tends to Produce a Slightly Bright, Optimistic Shots, It Still Takes Care not to over the Bright Aright Aright Aright Aright Aright Aright Aright Aright Aright Aright Aright Aright Aright Areas. Here, The Pony’s Mane Is Even Slightly Darkended, But at No Point is it out of the Tonal Range Aperture Priority, 1/1250S, F/6.3, ISO 200, 18-200/3.5-6.3 Lens .

The Alleyway

Taken On a Bright Sunny Day in Quite Contrasting Lighting. The automatic optimization of the tonal range it can be compared to the tool Shadows/Highlights program Photoshop worked almost perfectly: shadows are not blown out, the bright spots are not highlighted, and the overall impression of a bright day is transferred in the best way Aperture Priority, 1/500 C, F/6.3, ISO 200, The Lens 18-55/3.5-5.6 .

Incandescent Light is Still Problematic for DSLRS. But The Sony Nex-5 Handled Quite Well: The Colors Were Reprodued Even Not Quite Adequatly, But Much Better To Slr Cameras Aperture Priority, 1/80 S, F/6.3, ISO 500, The Lens 18-55/3.5-5.6


A Crucible for Exposure Metering: A White Statue in Full Sunlight, Background Foliage in Deep Shade. the automatic tonal range optimization is again on top: all details in the highlights and almost all the shadows are preserved, and the image as a whole looks absolutely natural, as if it had not been processed at all aperture priority, 1/800 sec, F/6.3, ISO 200, 18-55/3.5-5.6 Lens .

In a crowd

During Genre Photography The Zoom Is Automatically Set to the Exteme Telepation – it is Very Tempting to Catch Expressive Close -Ups of a Scene from. With the Optical Stabilizer Making an Exceptional Contribution to the Success of the Shot. This is, for example, The Equivalent Focal Length of 300 Mm Aperture Priority, 1/320 C, F/7.3, ISO 250, 18-200/3.5-6.3 Lens .


Perhaps the most Natural Way to Shoot Genre Scenes is with A Surreptitious Eye. If you set the aperture priority mode all the necessary adjustments of shooting parameters are available there and automatic selection of sensitivity, you can just forget about problems with exposure metering: the camera does everything automatically aperture priority, 1/200 sec, f/7.1, ISO 250, The Lens 18-200/3.5-6.3 .

The Nex-5 Isn’t A Reporter’s Camera, of Course. But its Speed ​​is good enunch to try and shoot sports. As We Can See Even a Ball is “Caure” in the Frame. SINCE WEA WERE SHOOTING AGAINST A SKY BACKGROUND, I NEEDED A Small Exposure Compensation of +2/3, Which is also set Quite Fast Aperture Priority, 1/320 Sec, F/7.1, ISO 200, Lens 18-200/3.5-6.3 .
