In the world of computers and even high-tech in the broadest sense, it
is common for products from the same range of specific common resume.
This applies to the Sony NEX 3 and NEX 5, two digital cameras with a few
individuals that are called compact optical interchangeable. The
promise of these devices: provide performance close to SLR without the
size and ease of use with a confusing, according to Sony during our
interview. The other very attractive feature of these devices is the
possibility of changing objectives. Both devices offer all this and Sony
does, in fact, really stand by their case and their video mode. If we
were frankly impressed by the quality of 720p video in NEX 3, we still
wanted to assess the performance of NEX 5 films in full HD.
Note first that this test of NEX 5, using the same basis as its little
brother, we will not review the quality of photos or even the ergonomics
of the user interface. We invite you instead to read the test of NEX 3 to learn more about the strengths and
weaknesses of these devices. Let's review, however, the finish which
differs indeed on NEX-5.
While the NEX 3 was already very good impression with its quality of
finish and compact polycarbonate, the NEX 5 raises the bar a little
higher. In addition to the quality of its magnesium casing, the NEX 5
offers grip even more enjoyable with a few more prominent. The grip is
firmer and the camera seems, in fact, better balanced.
A very good video
Video quality has really nothing to envy to the rendering of pictures.
Not only the image is excellent, but the sound is also very satisfying.
One would expect, given that the two microphones (stereo quality
assured) are located on top of the unit and not the front. Little
caution, however, when shooting, it must handle with delicacy not hear
too much noise friction. Filming in 1920 x 1080 pixels, AVCHD, with a
rate over 17 Mbps, the video quality goes amazingly excellent record
obtained when testing the camcorder HDR-CX305.
However, the NEX 5 remains well back from it. It does not have as good
optical stabilization and, more regrettably, the focus is capricious.
For a given quasi-optimal, it is preferable to force the central
focusing, fortunately, the quality of the screen to judge immediately
whether the plans are unclear.
Panorama: 3D is finally available
A promise kept! As Sony announced last May, the NEX 3 and NEX 5 received
1 July 2010 to update their firmware (the famous firmware V02). First
good news, it is unnecessary to be techie to turn his camera up to date.
All goes well through a step-by-step clear enough. Big regret all the
same, the update is done from Windows compatible software only. Anyway, a
few minutes to unlock this new camera mode. Again, several modes are
available: small panorama, panorama normal or wide.
As a classical view, the views raised are as easy: you press the trigger
and scan the horizon from left to right or vice versa. The
