Should I take Sony Alpha NEX-3\5?

I think habré quite a few people about photography.

Decided to buy a new camera to replace my PowerShot A80 the dinosaur, thought to take ixus 310 but I was convinced that it makes no sense...

The of course DSLRs images much better Yes, and sarawati possible, but the size, not the compact.

How about no mirror cameras? Attracted by the format — it is necessary compact screw pancakes, I decided on a serious approach took zoom, etc.

Going to take it off: something in travel, nature, etc. nothing special but at the same time, I want to be able to grow as a photographer.

upd: Took, have any questions please ask!?

Among intercalar is very delicious model:
1. a huge (compared to compacts) sensor with a 1.5 x crop factor. As a consequence of the low noise on high ISO (that can compensate for the weak flash).
2. a wide range of native lenses and the ground glass third party (via adapter and without). By the way, from nexow suitable optics and a video camera vg-10. And, you can put the glass from DSLRs Minolta/Sony (via adapter).
3. compact size (unlike SLR with pancake fits in your pocket)
4. good video

However, if you do not hurry, I would advise to wait, because replacing the NEX-3/5 in a short time will come the updated models (e.g., nex-c3), and there are already delicious characteristics.
Yeah, I read about the nex-c3 but so far it seems to know just what will happen a new outbreak.
And the nex-c3 is coming to replace nex-3 and nex-5 has no special differences between the case and the quality of the video better. - kailey_Stoltenberg commented on October 10th 19 at 07:59
On just maybe more information about the new nexø. And so while, Yes, the fifth NEX very tasty. But that will come to replace him is not yet known. - Jennie.Orn commented on October 10th 19 at 08:02

I also really liked Sonya until you've stumbled on samsung nx.
To take the nx10 with 18-55 — is happy as an elephant :) size a little more, but in the hands is better and flash is.
But if you want a thin camera (pocket) — take a closer look to the nx100.

My sister — Sonya nex-5. You can argue long what they say with a large lens, Sonya looks silly, and Samsung, the color transfer is much better, but essentially the same camera.

I would like to note that my money's worth. The photo quality is really very good.
Still a large sensor makes itself felt.

Himself long hesitated between a DSLR and a superzoom (as such yet was not). In the end we took the Nikon Coolpix P100 superzoom, which I regret because it didn't meet my expectations. Sony Alpha NEX-3\5 interesting just the fact that they use good (as in quality SLRs) matrix. He, unfortunately, this technique didn't work, but look very tasty(a large matrix as a result of lower noise at very high ISO, fast autofocus(again, on level DSLRs), fast continuous shooting(7 fps)). Clear the stump, the possible pitfalls of kotoroya can be found only from specialized forums, or if you personally use that are less than nice.
Autofocus fast, but NOT at the level DSLRs. In naksah (as in the other buttercake) uses the same contrast AF and not phase (as in DSLRs). - kailey_Stoltenberg commented on October 10th 19 at 08:03
Yes the rate is certainly surprising

Tested nexy at the exhibition in St. Petersburg last fall. I really did not like. The impression that you crossed an elephant with a Rhino... Nice optics and zoom, and a pancake, convenient to hold in hand. But the slowness of the camera, and autofocus is not pleased. To menu need long time to get used to. And the price tag... I'd looked towards Sony A55, not so she and larger, moreover, here we can use the whole range of alpha lenses.
Heard positive reviews of people who bought a NEX, so ask and test. Good luck!
The Sony a33/55, with all their advantages there are several negative aspects (such as the ghosting and weak battery) that will be resolved in the a77, its worth the wait if you plan on a55. - kailey_Stoltenberg commented on October 10th 19 at 08:05
About the battery at the a33/55 didn't know. I what is ghosting? ... Bunnies Ghosting when shooting against the sun? - Jennie.Orn commented on October 10th 19 at 08:08
not against the sun are called "hares". Hosted at the A33/55 is a technical problem with the feature-factor (a reflection from the inner surface of the semitransparent mirror), the images reflected in the ghosting of bright light sources (e.g. headlights/flashlights) in the dark without a flash. Promise 77 somehow fix it (and the bat.the block is rolled out). - Jennie.Orn commented on October 10th 19 at 08:11
Well as far as I know speed issues are already resolved in the 2nd version, and the 3rd reduced appetite so that work has become longer + made 2 programmable buttons - kailey_Stoltenberg commented on October 10th 19 at 08:14
To catch Ghosting still need to manage. The battery in the A33/A55 is exactly the same as in nexø. - Jennie.Orn commented on October 10th 19 at 08:17

Great camera. Like it very much. I have a NEX-5.
Megapixel screen night shooting.
The image quality no complaints.
As the owner of this miracle have a few questions:
— reflash? after the 3rd how does it feel?
— is it possible "it is necessary compact screw pancakes, I decided on a serious approach took zoom"?
— what you carry (case, pouch on the neck)?
— and at night how to shoot without a viewfinder, at random?
— how much battery is enough?
— the pancake is no stabilizer (in camera either) how much it interferes when shooting? - kailey_Stoltenberg commented on October 10th 19 at 08:07

The model is interesting, if not for a weak external flash with a non-standard connector...

What's the point of this camera??? for its price you can get a nikon d3100, a normal DSLR with a good selection of lenses. For the same as I understand lenses a little, flash custom. In terms of image quality, something I doubt that Nikon is worse. Size — there is a bit of a win at the Sony, but with a lens it is already not so small. And her battery is dead.
No one bothers to have a DSLR and NEX. SLR with all the kits often and everywhere, not shabby, the neck will go numb. But as a casual replacement Ala "thrown in a pocket and forget" NEX is even nothing. Lenses enough for him, and will be produced again (if interesting — PM). In summary and to answer your question "what is the meaning of this camera" reply "to the photo, better than normal soap, while in a compact body". - kailey_Stoltenberg commented on October 10th 19 at 08:11
