Sony NEX-5

Published November 14, 2013 by lizzybeth

So, I love photography.  I’ve had several digital cameras, but never a really good one.  I recently decided I was going to buy myself a good one.  I wanted something with interchangeable lenses, but after lots of research finally concluded that at this point I didn’t need a true DSLR.  After LOTS of research and shopping, I decided on the Sony NEX-5.  The purchase turned out wonderful.  I was shopping at Best Buy for like the 10th time.  I saw they had the Sony NEX-3 out, but not the NEX-5.  So I approached a saleswoman and asked if they had the NEX-5.  She said they did and got it out for me to see.  Well, turns out she’s a photography buff and OWNS the NEX-5.  Perfect!  So she was really nice and spent a ton of time with me telling me all about it.  She talked me into it within 10 minutes.  I have not yet learned all the features or explored much, but it has an Intelligent Auto function that is AMAZING!  I mean, truly fucking amazing.  It knows what to do in almost any situation. So my cousin got married on November 2, 2013 in Grafton, Vermont.  It was the first time I really used the camera.  We got really lucky weather-wise.  I mean, early November you could have any kind of weather in Vermont.  The Saturday of the wedding, which didn’t start until 4pm, was about 63 degrees – a record high for the area.  My boyfriend, mom, aunt & uncle and I went on a hike that was simply stunning.  Great weather and great scenery – can’t beat that!  So I just wanted to put out my initial review of the camera and show you all some photos.  I hope you’re as impressed with their quality as I was.

The beginning of our hike on Saturday.

Grafton Ponds at the end of the hike. So beautiful. And the pond acted as a mirror for the trees and buildings, making for great photos!



A really cool covered bridge towards the end of our hike.

So, I’m very pleased with my new purchase.  Stay tuned for further updates and pictures!
