    The systems u guys using i will not named as i used both before... had a similar weakness... what u not used to is the dynamic range and color tonality of the NEX5 ... it had an excellent highlight and shadow detail.

    To ed9119 how u personally find the dr of this camera?

    I had adjusted NOTHING on the camera except make sure it is on AWB .... now having a look again at the scroll down setting in Brightness/Color icon..... AH ! I notice that it is on
    DRO-HDR Auto

    AND the Creative Style was set to Vivid

    Will turn both of that off today to see how it goes

    Yesterday was shooting on Everything Auto mode

    TODAY will shoot with the cam customized to my own needs

    a. Apature Pirority mode
    b. Single Shot mode
    c. Exposure Compensation at 0 or -0.3
    d. Spot Metering
    e Single Point focussing
    f Flash dialed down -1.0 stop
    g. Creative Style set to Standard (didnt realize camera was set at Vivid yesterday)
    h. ISO set at 200 (thats the lowest on this camera)

    Darned........... this camera does not have AE Lock ....... Helloooooo???..... hope that they can include this function in one of the external buttons via firmware

    looks fine to me. even a bit too mild, can touch up here and there, but i think ed wants to showcase unprocessed pictures.

    i am wondering if it is easy to change settings quickly. seems like you have to call up menu, and then got to brightness/color to change iso, exposure compensation, etc. that might be a bit unwieldy as compared to just pressing an iso button to change it. but then again, at this size, i think is hard to fit on that sort of button.

    changing modes not so much of a problem, when moving from different lighting, you want different EV/iso changed quickly without having to fiddle around too much.

    you have been using multi focusing? i wonder how to shift the spot for the single point focusing - hopefully don't need to call up menu and go menu diving..

    Does the sweep panorama support portrait orientation? Ie hold the camera in portrait and sweep left to right.

    I only know it can do up to down in landscape orientation.

    yes - the sweep direction can be changed - left to right, right to left, top to bottom, and bottom to top.

    The top to bottom/bottom to top can be turned for portrait orientation sweep from left to right.

    Was shooting this morning at St Andrew's cathedral and around the Golden Mile Complex area this afternoon with Tungtung and Nokkieg

    By end of day at 7pm battery was down to 2-3 % level..... this thing has got good juice.... i was reviewing pics, reviewing videos, and the LCD was turned on for about 4-5 hrs .... about 260 images and videos captured

    Today shot with the cam customized to my own needs

    a. Apature Pirority mode
    b. Single Shot mode
    c. Exposure Compensation at 0 or -0.3
    d. Spot Metering
    e Single Point focussing
    f Flash dialed down -1.0 stop
    g. Creative Style set to Standard (didnt realize camera was set at Vivid yesterday)
    h. ISO set at 200 when possible and higher at 1600 indoors

    Darned........... this camera locks Focus and Exposure simultaneously with the shutter button half depressed

    45


    another shot... this time zoomed to max..... ok image still nice and crispy
    46


    Without AEL Lock this below image was tough...... wanted to meter for sky/building but focus on the Road Sign..... but because the cam locks focus and exposure SIMULTANEOUSLY with half press shutter ..... just had to pray that f8 caught everything from 2m to infinity
    47


    sky like that my fault for saving it in lower res
    ok.... this image was shot with the cam pointing literally SKYWARDS UP....... with LCD screen flipped out it helped tons with the composition
    48


    the little flash was dialed down 1.7 stops in image below

    thanks to the larger sensor size..... got some bokeh
    60


    shutter lag was negligible enough to catch this birdie ..... but a DSLR's only a bit faster, thats all
    61


    spot metering worked fine...... exposed for his shirt
    62



    OK Have to return this cam to Sony tomorrow ...........IF I can have it for a few more days..........

    its a 3.5 to 5.6 zoom ....... dont apply 1.8/2,8 expectations to it ... not fair

    18mm with aperture of 3.5 = 5.14 of cos there wont be much dof, everyone knows that what. This is the limitation of the lens, not the camera.
