Sony EX1 or NX5U for my trips?
on Dec 8, 2010 at 11:10:29 pm

Hi, I'm using Sony FX7 (PAL) and now I'd like to replace it with a
better camera. I'm a solitary traveler and I will use it in my trips
around the world but rainfores, mountains, desert, etc.
I don't know if I will buy an EX1 or a NX5U, I have confused ideas.
EX1: better image performance, less wide angle, heavier, more
expensive
NX5U: lighter, more wide angle, more zoom
Can I know your suggestions, please?
Thanks,

Depends what you are trying to do. Cinematic quality, neither doo well, but the ex-1 has far better image quality.

1: Ex-1 - 2hr battery life...
48minute record time on supplied dual 8gig cards...ships with one, I got free one when regitering cam.
excelent low light... .14 lux
Needs laptop with express port to offload SxS cards quickly or
slow usb2.0

2: NX5

2hr or so battery life
hours of recording with cheap easy hdsd cards 32gig = cheap...
poor light sensitivity 1.5 lux

I vote Sony Ex-1r for better quality image, light, and just carry a laptop...

EX-1 is also HDTV qualified...
