I own a DSLR chunky camera and let’s face it, it gets a little too heavy to carry all over the town. There’s such thing as living life in the moment and that’s when I wish we had a point-and-shoot camera that is more accessible to my photography skills.
Of course, my phone had always come to my rescue for those times where a DSLR couldn’t, but it was always missing something.
Except when I read about how point-and-shoot have evolved. These days, there’s so much more a point-and-shoot can do. From a faster sensor with continuous shooting mode to Interchangeable lens camera from Sony that allows for DSLR-quality images to be shot, yet remains as compact as a Cyber-shot camera.
With the introduction of the new NEX-5N camera from Sony with 16.1 mp and full HD video that caters to responsiveness, image quality and creative possibilities of a DSLR camera in a compact body – photographers can enjoy full control over exposure, video shooting, technical settings etc, similar to a DSLR experience. Minus the chunky effect, of course 😉
Who needs more chunkiness in their life? Not me, especially with all the junk I have in my handbag. All the time. Argh!
There’s too much photography jargons out there, but Sony’s introduction of a Compact system camera clearly amplifies the fact that we are heading in the right direction towards simplifying our photography equipment. NEX-7 all-in-one compact interchangeable camera with 24.3mp resolution offers quick, responsive autofocus, full HD movie, manual focus, improved audio and exposure control. That’s a whole lot of dimension (mouth-full) for a compact system camera.
I have my eyes on Sony’s new, lightweight compact NEX-F3 camera. I almost squealed reading the specifications! It comes with a tiltable LCD screen for easy self-portraits. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve had trouble taking my own photos. The girl behind the lens needs attention too and this fact is often overlooked. And approaching a stranger to take a shot gets me all jittery for 3 simple facts:
- What if he/she steals my camera?
- Argh! I’ve got to school him on how to use it.
- Bad photo.
I could go on and on, but let’s leave that up for discussion on another day
Personally, I was not given or had a chance to play around with any of Sony’s Apha Nex Cameras. But judging only by its specifications, I’m sure it’ll come in handy for any photography enthusiasts out there who find handling DSLR is more than they’d bargained for.
Are you a point-and-shoot or DSLR enthusiasts? What are your thoughts on Sony’s Alpha Nex Camera range?
