Photography is going through a bit of a continued boom at the moment. It’s great to have a camera always in your pocket, but as with most things, size matters. How about a compact system camera that can also pack a heavy-weight punch?
Bigger is often seen as better. People above average height are happier than shorter people, bigger gorillas make better fathers, and the better the gamer, the bigger the brain. Check out the Size Matters infographic if you don’t believe us – it’s chock full of other interesting reading, too.
And when it comes to technology, reducing things is the name of the game, but my photography aspirations want the best of both worlds – huge camera capabilities with the ease of a small camera size.
That’s why Sony’s NEX range really caught our eye. It offers big in a small, neat package.
Bigger sensors, says the Size Matters infographic, make better pictures – and even if you are short and happy, you can’t argue with that fact!
What’s also cool about the Sony NEX as a compact system camera is that it boasts DSLR picture quality with a large sensor, interchangeable lenses, HD movie recording. All this, plus it’s light, compact, and easy-to-use.
It seems ideal for those stepping out of the confines of their camera phone, but still want the ease of a camera that can be carried around easily. Or for those more adept photographers who want some point-and-shoot fun without making compromises on quality.
The DSLR-sized sensor has up to 24.3 effective megapixels and you can experiment with full range of exposure modes, as you’d expect from a DSLR camera, or opt for the easy to use auto options.
Whether you’re taking pictures of big animals, big cities, or big ideas, size really does matter, and the Sony NEX cameras have huge capabilities in a small cameras.
