More thoughts on my NEX 5

I've gotten to use the NEX 5 at the Easter get together at Ami's parents' house over the weekend. I have a better feel for the camera now, having used it in situations from shooting quick or miss the shot to having someone pose for me to taking macro shots of flowers. Before handling the NEX 5, I would've opted for shooting with a viewfinder in all of those situations. Now, though, I'm pretty stuck on this vari-angle (I think that's what they call it) screen.

I wind up shooting it like a lot of people do, by folding out the screen to face upward and I shoot it like a TLR, at chest height. That comes in real handy when you're going for candid shots that people don't know you're taking.

I got caught here.

Also, the video is very, very good. I'm shooting in the MP4 format just to save space and I still get video like this.

I'm loving this camera. I can't wait to try my hand at street photography with it!
