As with all new technology.. there are always some glitches
As far as picture quality (the lens does work with the exception of the two things mentioned) I have been very happy. I do feel like adding a few steps of sharpness helps the images (custom picture settings are available for user to define), but I am wondering now if that may also be the lens issue.
Excellent image quality, straight-forward handling and quick performance
So while the Nikon D5300 doesn't add that many new features to the year-old D5200, what it does add makes it a unique product at the mid-range price-point, offering something genuinely different to the likes of the Canon EOS 650D, Pentax K-5 II and the Sony A65. The combination of a free-angle screen, great video mode, high-quality stills and new connectivity options mean that the Nikon D5300 is a worthy winner of our Highly Recommended award.
1080p60 HD video mode, Excellent image quality
The Nikon D5300 is what's often referred to in the technology world as an 'evolutionary' upgrade. Nikon has abandoned the D5200's optical low pass filter, which might have been considered revolutonary a year ago, but now looks, to borrow a fashion industry term, 'on trend'. That's not to say it's frivolous or unwarranted, given that it improves the D5300's image quality with no apparent drawbacks (Moire wasn't an issue in any of my test shots) it's absolutely the right move.
Built-in Wi-fi addition, Good build quality
Although the Nikon D5300 certainly isn't perfect, with the lack of a touchscreen and a high price-tag at launch two noticeable issues, it's among best DSLRs on the market and is certainly worthy of consideration if you're in the market for an upgrade from your first DSLR, CSC or advanced compact.
Built in Wi-Fi and GPS, Improved ISO performance
The Nikon D5300 takes the tried and tested Nikon D5x00 series and updates it with a new more compact body, upgrading the screen in the process to a larger 3.2inch version and adding built in Wi-Fi and GPS into the mix. Along with this the 24 megapixel sensor now features no optical low pass filter, which will give improved image quality when shooting with high quality lenses, and we would recommend using prime lenses to get the best out of the camera.
Better handling and importantly faster performance than its predecessor
The new Fujifilm X-E2 offers more features, better handling and importantly faster performance than its predecessor, which we already loved, making it our favourite X-series camera and one of the best compact system cameras around. Fujifilm have clearly listened to their users and produced a camera that may look very much like the original X-E1, but which improves on it in virtually all ways.
Impressive noise performance, Great build quality and handling
The Fujifilm X-E2 improves on the X-E1 and addresses a number of the issues we found with the original camera, including accidentally knocking the exposure compensation dial, this hasn't happened on this new model, as well as adding a larger higher resolution screen. Focus speeds and continuous shooting speed has also been improved with the camera feeling extremely responsive in use.
Image quality is unsurprisingly excellent
Ultimately the E-P5 joins the E-M5 as a fantastic compact system camera, albeit again a rather pricey one. It's different enough to its older sibling to warrant careful consideration - smaller, lighter, in some ways more flexible, and with some genuinely useful extra features - so much so that we can recommend the new Olympus E-P5 just as highly as our favourite compact system camera of 2012.
Beautifully-styled and built, with lots of external controls
The E-P5 is the most substantial re-working of the original PEN model, and it's the most impressive yet. It produces the same excellent image quality as the E-M5 and has a proper two-dial control system. This, combined with a better touch screen and arguably the prettiest PEN body, make it a more attractive and more complete camera than the series has seen before.
Excellent image quality, Excellent colour reproduction
The Olympus PEN E-P5 sits at the top of the Olympus PEN range and is the desirable premium mirrorless camera, while lacking weather sealing of the OM-D, the additional features and high IQ from the OM-D should make the E-P5 top of the list for a mirrorless camera. The VF-4 EVF (electronic viewfinder) with a high resolution, large view, and rapid refresh is an excellent bit of kit and well worth adding to the E-P5, making it a real pleasure to shoot with.
Super-fast autofocus, responsive touchscreen
Substance and style meld into one excellent camera. If you're after a compact system camera without a built-in viewfinder then the E-P5 is as good as they come. If a viewfinder is essential then the VF-4 accessory is great, but it might make better financial sense to buy an OM-D E-M5 instead.
Attractive retro design, Efficient and intuitive controls
All the staffers who had a chance to try out the E-P5 loved it, and we were sad to see it leave our hands. It's nicely designed, has a ton of features, and produces really nice images. The noise filter is a bit aggressive that results in less-than-sharp images, but this is easily fixable by adjusting the settings to your liking. The E-P5 is a camera that will do really well in any number of shooting situations, as long as you can handle the price tag.
Solid performance, good value, Nikon nails it again!
This camera may be the best APS-C in its class so far. After Nikon's quality control issue with the full-frame D600 (sensor oil spot problem), Nikon may be able to win back its trust with this new release, again aimed at enthusiasts and amateur photographers. Being an amateur photographer for years and have invested quite a sum in Sony, Canon and Nikon bodies and lenses, I myself settled with Nikon in personal preference.
Design is easy to use and comfortable to handle
The ultimate irony of these cameras is this: when the D5100 first came to market we awarded it both Camera of the Year, and Budget DSLR of the Year. It was just such an amazing deal, with rare levels of performance at the price point. But after two years and little improvement for the D5200, this great camera didn't hit us with the same impact its predecessor did. Like we've said countless times in the review, the D5200 is a fine camera, but it's not $300 finer than the old one.
Good still and video image quality
The D5200 is a nice little camera with no glaring deficiencies and would make a fine first DSLR for someone moving out of the compact digital ranks. It would be a great follow-on camera for someone who's cut their teeth on an earlier model Nikon DSLR but doesn't want to go all the way to the prosumer D7100. I'm just left wishing Nikon had added a few more external controls and some weather sealing.
Undoubtedly a great all-round DSLR
The new Nikon D5200 may not reinvent the wheel in any way, but it is undoubtedly a great all-round DSLR that's well-suited to a lot of different users and experience levels, exactly what a mass-market camera should be, and judged on that criteria, the Nikon D5200 is once again a very worthy winner of our Highly Recommended award.
Impressive 39-point AF system, Continuous shooting speed of 5fps
Costing £649 body only, or £719 with the 18-55mm VR kit lens, the D5200 currently costs around £320 more than the equivalent D5100 package. The developments to the D5200's internal specification - most notably the 39-point AF system and 24.1MP sensor - result in a truly impressive specification for a consumer model. It delivers stunning image quality and is a pleasing camera to use, but is it really worth the additional £300 or so?
Produces detailed images, Excellent ISO performance
When we reviewed the D5100 in April of 2011 we were impressed and gave it our highly recommended award. The biggest change on the D5200 is the upgrade to the 24.1 megapixel CMOS sensor, with the D5200 producing 5 star quality images. The D5200 can also shoot at a faster rate of 5 fps in continuous shooting.
The D5200 is compatible with a number of accessories such as the Wireless Mobile Adapter (WU-1a) allowing sharing of images with mobile devices.
Good picture quality, vari-angle LCD screen, decent autofocus system with motorised lenses
We love the D5200's low-mid sensitivity shots which are among the best in class, and the 39-point autofocus sensor is quality too. But a lack of the usual array of Nikon quick-access DSLR buttons, no touchscreen, banding hidden in shadow areas of raw files and poor movie clips hold the model back. The new sensor is a double-edged sword that brings both good and bad to the table from what we've seen.
Outstanding sharpness scores
The Fujifilm X-E1 is all of the fun and none of the frivolity of the X-Pro1. The decision to exchange the hybrid OVF for lower costs will make a lot of consumers happy, but keeping performance at basically the same level is the real achievement here. We loved having this camera in-house and hate to see it go. Anyone whoâ?? s been watching this series but put off by the price should take a second look.
Intuitive handling, fantastic image quality
Retailing for £749 in the UK and $1000 in the US for the body-only, or £1149 / $1399 with the new 18-55mm f/2.8-4 OIS lens, means that you can buy the X-E1 with a great kit lens for less than the body-only launch price of the X-Pro1 (although obviously this is now significantly less). It also pits the X-E1 directly against the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and the Sony NEX-7, both of which are great cameras, but both of which are quite different in their approach.
Excellent image quality, Superb high ISO noise performance
The X-E1 is a great follow up model to Fujifilm's X-Pro 1 providing most of what the more expensive flagship model offers at a significantly lower price point. For purists, an optical viewfinder on a rangefinder style camera will be a must-have feature and the X-Pro 1's hybrid viewfinder is a technological wonder. But if you can live without an optical viewfinder, the X-E1's EVF is one of the best around and is arguably better suited to an interchangeable lens camera.
Unique camera design makes you want to take pictures
Overall, we really enjoyed shooting with the Fujifilm X-E1, and I'm very pleased with the images I got out of it. The camera crashed on occasion (it wouldn't be a new X-series camera if it didn't have some bugs...), leaving buttons unresponsive, and focus and exposure sometimes delivered odd results, but powering off usually cleared the error.
Stunning image quality
While it might be tempting to think of the X-E1 as a stripped back X-Pro1, that does it something of a disservice in that the X-E1 is a great camera in its own right. Gifted with the same premium grade construction and finish, the X-E1 feels more refined and balanced than it's more expensive sibling.
Impressive colour reproduction
The Fujifilm X-Pro1 and X-E1 are the definition of retro digital cameras, and the moment you pick it up, you'll be reminded of an old film camera from the past. With manual controls on the lens and body it is very easy to adjust settings and the menus and controls are well thought out and easy to get to grips with. The electronic viewfinder is excellent with an extremely high resolution and is great to use, although it's a shame the 2.8inch screen isn't larger and a higher resolution.
Image quality is excellent, build quality is superb
It's not cheap and the autofocus speed isn't going to see off its nearest competitors, but the X-E1 is a tool that never takes its eye off the image-quality ball, all wrapped up into a super chic retro-styled body. It looks great, its images look even greater, and that's where this retro snapper wins. However the limited selection of current XF lenses may be seen as an issue and this pro-targeted model isn't going to suit all tastes or needs on account of its AF system.
Extremely low image noise up to ISO 6400
The Fuji X-E1 follows the X-Pro1 with the same 16 MP CMOS sensor that delivers class-leading image quality thanks to its unique X-Trans sensor which does not use an anti-alias filter.
The X-E1 is an excellent successor to the X-Pro1. While it does not address all issues, it improves upon the X-Pro1 considerably with a better EVF in a smaller body, faster performance and even a considerably lower price tag.
Retro styling, Less daunting than the X-Pro1
The 16.3 effective megapixel, 1920x1080 pixels Full HD video shooting Fujifilm X-E1 competes directly with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 in the retro styled compact camera system stakes. While, if you prefer the more modernist look, the Sony NEX-7 and cheaper Sony NEX-6 likewise offer an eye-level viewfinder, as well as the larger format APS-C sensor for almost DSLR-style picture quality.
Top Notch Entry Level Camera w/ Advanced Features
In conclusion, the Sony A37 hits the mark for the intended audience. It will provide good performance in typical shooting scenarios of amateurs. However, as you move into the creative realm of photography (think fashion and fine art), you will encounter some difficulty pushing the gear envelope. At higher ISO's you will experience significant noise and will need to move to prime or fast lenses and flash to get the ISO down.
5.5FPS continuous shooting speed puts it above competition
The Sony Alpha A37 is a fairly standard upgrade for the company's entry-level SLT DSLR lineup. It replaces the A35 with some basic upgrades to control, a new image sensor, but a largely unchanged design. The A37 is aimed largely at beginners, with most of its features designed for those adapting to DSLRs from point and shoots.
Image quality is excellent
The Sony A37 is a compelling entry-level DSLR camera with features, still and video image quality, and overall performance that beat its main rivals. Only the small, low-resolution, non-articulating LCD screen detracts from an otherwise outstanding camera that will more than satisfy the needs of its target audience. The A37 marries most of the core features of its bigger brother, the A57, with the more diminutive body of its predessor, the A33, resulting in the cheapest SLT camera to date.
Excellent image quality, Excellent value for money
The Sony Alpha A37 adds a tilting screen compared to the A35, although unfortunately it's smaller and a lower resolution than the A35 - this is partially made up for by the increase in viewfinder resolution, which is now 1.44million dots.
The Sony Alpha A37 is an extremely capable Digital SLR / SLT that produces excellent images with bright saturated colour and very good detail.
Has an arm-length list of features
The A37 is a patchwork of other Sony SLT cameras past and present. Its ultimate goal: to be as budget as possible. And it achieves that with bells on.
But not only is it affordable, the A37 is also a great camera. The continuous autofocus system will outdo anything at a similar price point, and the same can be said for movie mode's swift autofocus (just a shame it's 50i, not 50p). Then there's the 7fps burst shooting mode that's unrivalled for this kind of money.
Shooting 1920x1080 pixels Full HD video
As this a budget model costing a very reasonable £499 with the 18-55mm standard zoom supplied on test, we don't get the top plate function window found on semi pro models, but we are provided with a shooting mode dial crammed with 12 manual and automatic picture enhancing controls, including panorama and 3D stills option. Again this is more than we'd normally expect at this price point. Add in colour-rich, well-defined images and smooth 50fps video capture and you can't go wrong.
Seamless continuous autofocus in videos
Overall, the Sony Alpha SLT-A37 offers a good feature set, fast autofocusing and a useful tilting screen. Features which impressed us include its swift continuous autofocus performance in videos, the focus-peaking mode and inclusion of a 3.5mm microphone input port--aspects we think should appeal to aspiring videographers. Despite its smaller and lower-res screen, we think the A37 a worthy purchase and provides good value for money for shutterbugs looking for their first dSLR.
Ease of use, Affordable price
We'd recommend the 16.1 megapixel Sony SLT-A37 as a good option for anyone considering a step up from a humble snapper to a budget priced DSLR in the hope of a marked improvement in picture quality. This 'SLT' is more fluid to use than most DSLRs - we're not burdened down by a lot of controls we won't often use and all the essentials are here, recognisable from most compact cameras.
Love this Camera!!!
I am a proud owner of the Pentax K-5 and very happy with everything about it. I just received the Pentax K-5 II and tested it out. I tried it in a low light situation and the images are better. In addition, the LCD screen on the back of the camera is much better and I can better determine if the image is tack sharp or not. I would highly recommend to spend the extra amount and go for the K-5 II instead of the K-5 at a discount.
Vastly improved autofocus in low-light shooting
Photographers buying their first top-tier DSLR will have a tough choice ahead, but Pentaxians are likely to stick with the home team. If you're looking to upgrade from a K-7, K20D, or K-x and don't shoot in low light or with fast primes (brighter than f/2.8), the K-5 is a great choice and a real money-saver. But if you just love shallow depth of field and need the flexibility to shoot in extremely dim light, the K-5 II is your answer.
Image quality is excellent
The K-5 II's image quality is excellent, producing noise-free images all the way from from ISO 80-800. Noise starts to become apparent at ISO 1600, with a little more noise and smearing of fine detail at the higher settings of 3200 and 6400, while the fastest speeds of 12800, 25600 are suitable for smaller prints. The incredible headline-grabbing top-speed of 512000 is frankly unusable - Pentax should have followed Nikon's lead and stopped the range at 25600.
Good detail and dynamic range (even better in Raw)
A good, solid, weather-sealed camera with a tried-and-true sensor, the Pentax K-5 II remains a solid digital SLR that's easy to recommend. With a decided bent toward enthusiast users, the Pentax K-5 II pairs well with the company's line of Limited lenses, and is good to have along with a Weather Resistant lens on a rainy day.
Solid build, Ease of use, Decent sensor
Like its predecessor, the Pentax K-5 II succeeds where it matters most. It produces high image quality (although its resolution scores are a little low), boasts strong autofocus performance, high build quality and is easy to use. It is a pity we can't add the camera's exposure metering to the list of superlatives, because capable though it is, the few occasions where overexposure does occur can frustrate.
However, the biggest problem the Pentax K-5 II faces is the old Pentax K-5.
Impressive AF in low light
First and foremost, the Pentax K-5 II represents a relatively minor upgrade over its predecessor, the K-5. It's worth noting though that the original K-5 was a pretty impressive DSLR, so the lack of any great sweeping changes isn't necessarily a bad thing. The main improvements the new model does bring to the table are with regards to AF performance and the viewability of the LCD screen, both of which make a noticeable difference.
Fast operation, Outstanding colour reproduction
The Pentax K-5 II is a rugged, magnesium alloy bodied, weatherproof, well designed and high quality camera with a kit zoom that is really very good indeed, and provides a package that looks very exciting against its rivals. It is more compact, arguably slicker in operation and provides the highest standards at a relatively low price level. There's not much to dislike, so the K-5 can be totally recommended.
Excellent control over image noise
The Pentax K-5 II follows its predecessor by two years with an almost identical specification which hides the most sensitive autofocus system yet. The new SAFOX X AF system is sensitive down to -3 EV which is beyond any available digital camera. The simultaneously-launched K-5 IIs which lacks an anti-alias filter is the only DSLR to top the image quality of the original K-5. The K-5 II lands right between them.
Image quality, Colour reproduction
Pentax has followed up its highly regarded K5 with an equally impressive consumer dSLR. With good image quality and great interface design in both the hardware and software, it's a very enjoyable camera to use. Although a little more expensive than some direct competitors, it's well worth serious consideration.
Good camera but is it worth the money?
So in a nut shell if you are looking at a V2 should you buy it? The V1 price cannot be beat right now and the image quality of the V2 is not that much different than the V1. If I did not own the V1 already I would buy it in a heartbeat vs. the V2. Am I going to upgrade? No, not at this time, I am going to wait until Nikon discounts the camera to a price that is more reasonable as they have done with the V1 or wait for the V3.
Unmatched burst mode performance
We recommend the V2 only for users who spend the majority of their time shooting action, for whom a larger DSLR simply isnÃ¢Â? Â? t an option. The 1 series' small footprint is no longer compelling in the ever-more crowded mirrorless market (and don't forget the smaller, cheaper Sony RX100 either), while the sensor's indoor and low-light performance is worse than what we expect from this price point.
Attractive combination of speed, portability, image quality and handling
Nikon have made some big changes to the original V1 to make this new model more appealing to keen enthusiasts, and in most regards they've succeed in making the new V2 a much more serious proposition. The new handgrip, shooting mode dial and control dial in particular make the V2 quicker to use, while the pop-up flash makes it more versatile, albeit at the expense of the V1's stylish and slimline appearance.
Small body, Advanced controls
Whether it will tempt anyone away from the slew of larger sensored compact system cameras currently on the market seems questionable. While it does produce good images, those looking for something a little more advanced will probably be more at home with the likes of the Panasonic G5, Sony NEX-5R or Olympus PEN E-PL5.
That said, it's a nice small size, making it ideal for carrying around a lot.
Good range of useful shooting features
There's a lot to like about the Nikon V2 and it's certainly a big improvement on the V1. The addition of an exposure mode dial on the top-plate and a comfortable handgrip both make the V2 a much more enjoyable camera to shoot with. Performance impresses too, with the V2's 60fps burst mode and lightning-fast AF system being the obvious highlights, and well supported by a good range of shooting modes.
Fast high speed shooting at fast shutter speeds possible
The Nikon 1 V2 is an excellent advancement in the mirrorless camera market. There are stunning new features such as Slow View and there is fast high-speed shooting. Given you can shoot at shutter speeds up to 1/4000, it's possible to use the camera for sports photography if you purchase the 10-100mm (35mm equiv: 27-270mm) lens or attach a AF-S or AF-I Nikkor lens using the FT1 mount.
Super-fast autofocus system, impressive burst mode
There's a lot to like about the Nikon 1 V2: it's super fast, responsive and the new mode dial is a nod toward welcoming in the more traditional photo enthusiast. But the menu system is still a bit of a faff and the 1-inch sensor size won't quite match up to the competition. As much as the super speed may sway some, we find the £749 price tag to be too much of a stretch on this occasion.
Ultra-fast autofocus until very low light
The Nikon 1 V2 leads in terms of speed while placing itself right between most compact and most mirrorless cameras for output quality. This makes it one of a few mirrorless ones that can actually handle action photography, at least down to moderate light levels.
Compact body and lens system, Image quality, Colour reproduction
A beautifully designed and constructed compact camera with a lens system that brings out the strengths of the compact interchangeable lens form factor. Image quality is good and it's genuinely fun to use. Travellers who want the flexibility of a dSLR without the bulk or weight should look this way.
Ability to continuously auto-focus during movie recording
In summary the new 650D / Rebel T4i is the most complicated yet friendly mid-range Canon DSLR yet, truly a camera that you can grow into as your photography skills develop. It only misses out on our highest Essential award because of the still slow Live View auto-focusing and a small price increase over the 600D, but is more than deserving of our still-coveted Highly Recommended award.
High image quality with good balance between detail and noise reduction in JPEG output
With the EOS 650D, Canon faced the challenge of taking an already successful camera line and finding a way to offer more than a token upgrade without stealing too much thunder from its higher-spec'd DSLRs. By maintaining what has long been very good image quality for both stills and video shooting and addressing operational handling with a remarkably well-executed touchscreen implementation, the latest addition to the Rebel lineup carves out a niche as one of the more enjoyable to use entry...
Image quality and high ISO performance
Although it has an 18 million pixel sensor, Canon's EOS 650D/Rebel T4i doesn't use the same CMOS device as other cameras in Canon's range. It uses a new Hybrid CMOS sensor that is designed to facilitate a combined phase detection and contrast detection autofocus system that operates during video recording and when Live View is activated.
Touch-screen adds to user experience
The Canon EOS 650D is the first mid-range DSLR to offers touch-screen functionality and is all the better for it. While Canon has implemented the technology well, it hasn't made it obligatory to the camera's general operation. Autofocus performance has seen a fairly major improvement too, with the While other changes are more incremental they do make the EOS 650D a more enjoyable camera to use than its predecessor.
Excellent image quality, Excellent colour reproduction
Video is improved thanks to stereo sound and continuous AF, although this is still generally quite slow compared to mirrorless cameras, and the noise of the lens focussing is easily picked up by the internal microphones. In fact, the manual recommends the use of an external microphone if this is something you want to avoid.
Produces great quality shots
The 650D's improved autofocus system (as per the 60D) is a big step forward and the HD movie mode makes best use of the new touchscreen technology. The camera's 18-megapixel sensor produces great quality shots direct from camera, but the limitations at higher ISO settings and small buffer when shooting raw files in burst mode are sticking points.
Very fast in shot-to-shot performance and burst mode
Canon's EOS 650D is for users who want fast speed out of an entry-level digital SLR camera. It can pump out photos to the tune of five frames per second, making it perfect for budding sports and action photographers who don't want to spend more for an enthusiast-level body. It's an easy camera to use and get the hang of and Canon has included a touchscreen so that you can have more choice as to how you control the camera's settings.
Dedicated video switch
The Canon EOS 650D comes as an update to the 600D, which was announced early last year. The highlight of the 650D is its touchscreen display which makes it the first shooter in the dSLR segment to sport such a feature. This new 18-megapixel entry-level dSLR boasts better shooting performance and enhanced video controls with a duo of STM lenses. According to a Canon representative, the 600D will still be sold alongside the 650D.
Continuous AF in video
The Canon EOS 650D is packed with cool features, including a multi-touch touchscreen, full high-definition video with improved video controls and a faster auto-focus with better noise performance. It's a serious package for new SLR users -- but Micro Four Thirds and other lens-swapping cameras offer similar features for less money.
Excellent video capabilities
But at only $750 with a high quality kit lens included, the NEX-5R is a rather remarkable value. While the most heavily publicized features (picture effects, self-portrait LCD, Wi-Fi uploading to Facebook) might paint this camera as an entry level model, the hardware and performance are more high-end than you may have guessed.
Great image quality up to 6400, Fast focusing, Compact size
Sony's NEX-5R is overall quite a minor update to the old NEX-5N--but the changes that are there really count. The WiFi transmission feature is really quite cool for photographers, journalists or enthusiasts that need to shoot and share on the spot. The new sensor renders not only spectacular color but also excellent high iso results. On top of this, Sony decided to add in more ergonomic exposure controls.
Faster hybrid auto-focusing, wi-fi connectivity, downloadable apps
The new NEX-5R is an excellent all-round compact system camera that successfully reaches out to beginners and more experience users alike. While it looks almost identical to its predecessor, the new 180Â° tilting LCD screen, faster hybrid auto-focusing, wi-fi connectivity, downloadable apps and a more refined interface make the NEX-5R a great mid-range mirrorless camera.
Excellent image quality, 10 fps continuous shooting
The Sony NEX-5R is the update to the 5N, with the most exciting upgrade being the built-in Wi-Fi which allows you to share and edit images via apps, as well as utilising your smartphone or tablet as a remote release as well.
Picture quality is excellent and you can shoot full sized images at an impressive 10 fps. It has an excellent battery life, rated at 410 shots and the tiltable screen makes it easy to shoot at varying angles.
Low-light performance, Articulated screen
The Sony NEX-5R is a beautifully built camera that you'll have great fun using. The articulated screen puts it one step ahead of its competitors, and the innovative downloadable apps will expand its feature set over time. All in all, a great buy if you can afford it, but the reasons to upgrade from the NEX-5N aren't entirely convincing.
Compact, large-sensor interchangeable-lens camera with Wi-Fi capabilities
Sony's latest E-mount camera, the NEX-5R has a very similar body design to the NEX-5N but includes the flip-up monitor from the NEX-F3. Equipped with a brand new 16.1-megapixel APS-C sized sensor with overlaid Phase Detection AF pixels, it introduces WiFi connectivity and application support that will allow users to upload images and movies to the Internet.
