Sony NEX5 in hand, for a half hour anyway

Posted in Personal by Will on Sunday, November 14th, 2010 ~ 4pm

I played with the NEX camera (by Sony) at Mike’s Camera this weekend, and mmmmhhhhhhmmm, it was gud (with an umlaut). I was given two lenses to play with, the 16mm wide and the standard 18-something zoom. And the 16mm actually was better than the 18+, in terms of the field of view. I thought 16mm would be so close to 18mm as to make no difference, but the fact is that buying the camera with both lenses would in fact make the most sense. It is cheaper to buy it that way. Of course it is MORE cheaper to just but the 18+ lens and leave it at that. Which is sadly what will likely actually happen. I figure. I could always find the 16mm on ebay in a few years, once some people have outgrown the NEX5 camera.

Now all of this, and I don’t actually have anything but my life to photograph. Which is a bit of a waste so far, but I am working on that…

    I keep thinking I want to learn photography, but fear my poor old brain can’t handle the learning curve. You always write about cameras with such good knowledge that it almost goes over my head. Okay, it totally does. It really makes me fear that I couldn’t get the lingo down at all.

    You’ll pick it up just fine, Rodney. There’s just 2 main steps: 1) Try not to have your camera stolen. 2) Set it on auto and have fun!

    The rest you’ll pick up naturally by trial and error.
