NEX-5N: Sony’s Skinniest, Fastest Interchangeable-Lens Camera

29 October 2011
Published in Digital Cameras

Slimmed down to just 23.3 millimeters at its thinnest point, Sony’s α NEX-5N interchangeable-lens camera (ILC) may look odd with a giant lens strapped on its front, but it’s not meager in its speed or power.

Housed in a rugged, light magnesium alloy body, the 5N has an intuitive touch-screen interface and a shutter release time lag of approximately 20 milliseconds, the quickest ILC camera to date.

Published in Digital Cameras

Leica has added subtle changes to its redesigned M9-P rangefinder to make it more durable as well as stylish.

This latest rangefinder digital camera is still the smallest full-frame model on the market to date. Mechanically speaking, the M9-P is identical to its predecessor.

In terms of packaging, Leica has made a few changes with the M9-P. For starters, the red Leica brand has been removed from the casing and replaced with an engraved logo on the top of the camera. For added stealth, this model can be purchased in all-black as well as in the traditional black-and-chrome configuration...
