Sony NEX5RKW Compact System Review

Sony NEX5RKW Digital Camera

When it comes to a superb camera, the Sony NEX5RKW has excellent compact camera reviews. If you are looking for a camera that you can rely on, this little beauty is great for professional picture taking, as well as spur of the moment snap-shots and is most definitely the compact camera for you. A portable camera with all the qualities of a DLSR, this stylish camera is one of the best Sony Cameras available and can snap up to 10 frames per second, so you’re sure not to miss a thing.

With The 16.1-megapixel APS-C size sensor, you can be assured that you are taking beautiful stills that are superior quality to reflect the mood of the moment when you took the picture; be it on a hot sunny island, or during a thunderstorm. Maybe you are just having a family get together; whatever the occasion, the quality of the picture will help you immerse yourself in the moment so that every time you look back at your pictures, you can feel as if you only took the picture yesterday.

Ever been at a concert, football match or somewhere where you would love everyone to see exactly what you are doing when you are doing it? Well thanks to the built in Wi-Fi you can snap away and upload to your favourite social networking site the second it happens. As well as all this, you also have the world of apps at your disposal, so whether you want to make that show a little more elaborate or just to put a nice little frame around the picture before sending it to a loved one, it’s all here at the touch of a button.

Thanks to the very big NEX-5R sensor, you can also look forward to your camera capturing plenty of light and producing superior picture quality. With more light reaching the lens, the difference in quality really is noticeable.

Sometimes things happen on the spur of the moment and you need to be able to reach for your camera and take a super-fast shot. So if that moment comes when you see a friend falling into the swimming pool, or someone does something spontaneous on Christmas day, you can rely on your Sony compact capturing the moment before it has gone by. You just point and push and with up to ten frames per second you can go back and pick the best shots and delete the rest.

Thanks to the innovative Smart Remote app you can enjoy group photos with far more ease. You can connect the camera to your smartphone and simply see exactly how the photo is going to turn out, which will save you the hassle of having to continuously run back and forth to the camera every time the shot doesn’t turn out perfect.

If all this still isn’t enough and you are the artistic type, then there is plenty more features that will allow you to change pictures, add to the quality or just have plenty of fun. Before you know it you will have loads of crazy pics of all your friends.

As well as all this, there are 8 different lenses to choose from, so no matter what your environment or what type of picture you want to take, there’s bound to be the right one to suit the occasion.

For all the budding directors out there, you have full HD movies at your disposal. Thanks to Sony’s superior technology you won’t have to worry about focus or bad light, all you have to do is point and push and the autofocus and light adjustment will take over.

If you are out for an evening with that special friend and you want to capture the moment then just tilt the 180° lens and take the perfect image of you without having to endlessly repeat before you get it right.
