Why you can trust TechRadar
FOCUS: This outdoor image, taken in the light of a late autumn afternoon, witnesses the Sony NEX-5N's background defocus option to full effect, very effectively reducing the sharp portion of the image to the flower heads and blurring the backdrop.
SHADOW: A bright background and a dark foreground is a problem for any exposure system. Commendably here the Sony NEX-5N has preserved a lot of shadow detail, brought back with a subtle use of Curves in Photoshop and without introducing noise into the bargain.
LOW LIGHT: This low light shot, taken under low tungsten lighting at ISO 3200 and using the optically stabilised kit lens, reveals what the Sony NEX-5N and kit lens combo is capable of when performing at its very best.
PANORAMIC: Sweep Panorama mode creates up to 23MP images that can be 2D or 3D, by stitching together a rapid-fire sequence of shots into one wide photo.
