For people like me, the price sometime hurts much deeply into our soul. Although, I really, really love so much to hand the NEX-7, well, its price makes me could reach it only in my dream world. Luckily, Sony also revealed NEX-5N in only half price, MSRP $700 with 18-55mm kit zoom lens or MSRP $600 for body only.
Of course, the half price sacrifices a part of its components. Sony NEX-5n digital camera comes without an integrated XGA OLED TruFinder , and only 16.1 MP Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor. However, you still could shoot smooth AVCHD Progressive Full HD movie with high-quality stereo at 60p. Plus, the new camera also still have right to hold the world’s fastest in bust speed (up to 10fps) and response (20ms release time lag).
In addition, Sony NEX-5N camera features a 3.0-inch Xtra Fine touch LCD angles up to 80 degree up or 45 degree down, powered by BIONZ image processing engine, USB 2.0, HDMI mini connector, a built-in stereo microphone, and a built-in speaker. Thanks to NP-FW50 rechargeable battery, it supports the camera to shot up to 430 images or up to 2GB MP4 format movie.
Fashioned in a rugged light magnesium alloy body in 110.8 (W) x 58.8 (H) x 38.2 (D) mm with 210g (body only), Sony NEX-5N interchangeable lens camera is expected to hit market in September 2011 in two colors: silver and black. Hey, don’t take picture on my girl! [Dandy Gadget Source]
