I bought a Sony NEX-5N on close-out, from Best Buy, and was impressed enough to get a NEX-7, used, from Amazon. With the 5N I need my reading glasses to see the LCD screen. The Nex-7 has a viewfinder (plus the LED screen). I also wanted an external mic input. Before I go on, here is my video on how I setup and use the camera.
I’m about to do more video, so I bought a Sony NEX 5N with the 18-55mm kit lens. I was going to buy the Canon G1X, but many have said the Sony does better video. In any case, when the Sony kit went on sale for $500 I sold my Canon 5D (cry-sob) and Canon VIXIA HFS20 (hardly knew ye) and bought it.
I took those cameras to Cape Cod. My new (to me) DP2s is delivering the same stunning results as my DP1. I took many comparison shots with my friend’s Nikon D90 and zoom lens (sorry, forgotten which) and my SD14. For quick shots the D90 was better, easier to use, but for portraits the SD14 had that extra je ne sais quoi.
