The smallest interchangeable lenses money can buy

If you haven’t heard of Sony, they are these big time electronics distributors who are consistently redefining the technological world- and as of April 2010 they did it again, becoming the proud producers of the NEX-5, the world’s smallest interchangeable lens camera. Don’t let the size of this micro four-thirds camera scare you away, it can certainly hold a flame to the bulkier cousins in the DSLR world. Amongst its long list of top quality features is a 14.2 megapixel APS-C sensor, 7 fps shooting capabilities, an ISO sensitivity of 12,800, the ability to capture HD movies in 1080p, 25-point autofocus, a handheld twilight mode enabling you to capture crystal clear photos in low-light situations (not that you’ll need it with an ISO range like that), and the very cool sweep panorama function which can reach as far as 202 degrees. Oh, and its got a 3-inch LCD screen that can tilt! Whew, that was quite the mouthful. But, there is plenty more to discover about this teeny tiny $700 power punch of a camera, and you can find out the rest here.
