Re: NEX-5N review

"I "will" need some ND filters for outside shoots...which NDF did you use on your outside shots in the video?"

Fortunately both the 16mm and the 18-55mm lenses use a 49mm filter, so you can get just one. I used a multi-coated Hoya NDX8.

Re: NEX-5N review

I got the Nex 5N....unboxed today and played with it some. (18-55mm kit lens + 16mm)

Beautiful..cant wait to spend more time with it next week. The was a little hard to navigate, but I will get use to it in time.

The stills and video in the all "auto" mode look stunning to me. I like it much better than my XHA1 video...I think my A1 just became my "B" cam. If the VG-20 video is as good, I will have to purchase one and sell my A1.

Once I learn how to use the 5N..I will post some clips/stills.
