- $648 NEX-5R body only
- $748 NEX-5R with 18-55mm lens (yes, this lens sucks… bulky and nothing to die for, optically speaking…)
If you were out last week driving your rover on Mars, let me sum the NEX-5R up for you real quick. The Sony NEX-5R is a wi-fi version of the NEX-5N mirrorless camera. It then has the same APS-C Exmor sensor of 16MP, 1080p at 60fps, 3″ / 921,600 dots tiltable and touch screen, multiframe advanced modes like HDR, handhelt nighshot… Now with the Wi-Fi, the camera can connect to the netire world thanks to your smartphone or tablet. You can also customize the camera software downloading new applications on PlayMemories Cloud service like Picture Effect+ that adds new digital filters or Smart Remote Control that turns your iPhone or Xperia into a remote control center like we have seen with Samsung and the WB850F / NX210F remote app.
Talking about smartcameras, you have to check the Samsung Galaxy Camera out, a real half-smartphone half super zoom camera.
