Having exhausted my camera lust I find myself back where I started a little over a year ago. The first camera I had that produced anything remotely sensible was the Sony NEX 5n. I was blown away at the quality of the images and couldn’t quite believe I had finally managed a decent shot or two.
Many, many, many camera brands and formats later I now have only one camera, a Sony NEX 3n. The budget baby of the NEX lineup, no bells or whistles, no frilly features. It’s a basic image making machine, and it does a perty fine job too.
I thought I had in mind a two camera setup, one small mirrorless compact to sling in a handbag, and a ‘proper’ camera – DSLR/SLT. Brands offer various features that the competition may not and whilst I liked something of each brand, nothing jumped out as ‘the one’.
So after much searching, testing, selling and returning I have decided to hang onto the little NEX as the compact option and take time to work out exactly what I really want/need from a DSLR………although there is one I have yet to try….
