Sony CyberShot Nex 5 Compact System Camera + 18-55mm
The Sony NEX-5 camera offers the exquisitely high quality performance and flexibility of a DSLR, as well as Full HD video, but with the convenience and small size of a compact.
With the ability to swap E-mount lenses just like a DSLR, the Sony NEX-5 allows you to take a much wider range of shots than you could with a compact, from the most detailed macro to wide angle landscapes and distant telephoto images. You can even fit an A-mount adaptor to take advantage of your existing DSLR lenses.
However, rather than a bulky DSLR body, the NEX-5 comes with a slim and beautifully styled body that won't weigh you down, and will slip easily into a coat pocket or bag when you're out and about.
It's not just the lenses that make the camera, as the Sony NEX-5 has a stunning extra-large 14.2 megapixel Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor to guarantee phenomenal imaging performance. You'll really see the difference with richly detailed, low-noise pictures, even in low light.
As well as great stills, the NEX-5 will let you capture smoothly detailed 1080ip AVCHD video, with quick autofocus to track the action -even while you're zooming. Beautiful background defocus effects add an extra dimension to creative movie shooting.
All this advanced technology doesn't come with ranks of intimidating buttons and menus though. The NEX-5 is simplicity itself to operate, with an intuitive on-screen interface, control dial and soft keys that will even allow you to make one-handed adjustments of camera settings.
The Sony NEX-5 allows you to create extra-wide images that can be viewed in 3D on compatible televisions, using Sweep Panorama mode. Meanwhile high speed burst shooting allows you to capture up to 7 frames per second - great for wildlife and sports photography - and Auto HDR combines three images at different exposure settings to capture extreme shadow and highlight detail.
