Big ones, small ones, cheapo cams, expensive, sell-a-kidney models, oldies, brand new futuristic ones. There are so many options out there. I’ve been a cameraholic for a long, long time. These days it’s all about the mirrorless cameras. Once you’ve tried one of those tiny, hybrid gizmos, it’s truly hard to go back to the bulk of a DLSR. Personally I’ve been shooting Sony NEX bodies for the past 7 months, and in all honesty find them NEXtraordinaires !
What’s so cool about my NEX camera ?? Hmm, let me see. The lens selection sucks, autofocus has previous generation (in best light) performance, the menus are wonky and the User Interface takes a while getting used to…
I love the NEX for being small, well built, with a tilting screen that I never thought I’d use at first but am actually addicted to. I have the high end version (NEX 7) that is super sleek looking, and very easy to use once you’ve configured it to work as YOU want. See, there is no label on the NEX buttons, because you can get them to do whatever’s most useful to you. That’s genius.
What I truly cherish with this camera is its ability to capture scenes as they appear to the naked eye. The Dynamic range and noise performance are state-of-the-art, which allows highlights, shadows, colors and textures to be rendered very faithfully. It’s also a very small camera. Stealthy.
The GX-1 does a lot of things well. It has a super useful touchscreen, top of the line autofocus module with great Face Detection, and a killer User Interface. But I still like the larger imaging sensor of the NEX way better….
And all things from life
