BBC man in Vienna Johnnie Behiri has been rigging up with the NEX 5N to shoot for the BBC, which completely destroys the myth that DSLRs can’t be approved for broadcast work. Shot in 1080/25p with only the 18-55mm kit lens and 16mm F2.8 pancake, Johnnie says the NEX 5N “is a lot of fun to work with. Its low light capability is very nice and working in even 1600 ISO is a absolutely ‘worry free'”.
Here is the update to the old NEX 5. I’m surprised they didn’t dub it NEX 6 because it’s significantly different.
Full manual control in video mode – this is a huge surprise. We knew the A77 and A65 had it from the leaks. I was relieved when I saw the NEX-7 had it. I am frankly over the moon to see the affordable NEX-5 with it (according to the Japanese Sony website).
