  • Trying out a Mirrorless

  • April 19, 2014
  • By: Parminder

Stepping up from a point and shoot was the best decision that I ever made. After researching a bunch of different cameras including the typical DSLRs and mirrorless options, I opted for this Nex-5 and had an incredible experience. The smaller form factor and lighter weight are definitely tremendous advantages, especially when traveling. The image quality is vastly superior to the Sony point and shoot that I was previously using and the option to use many different lenses (with an adapter) creates some very unique images. I would definitely recommend the Nex-5!
