Two questions about NEX5 (N)
Aug 17, 2011

Hi, everyone.

As I'll have a lot of video shooting projects with good-quality sound options, I had to sell my beloved G3 since it doesn't have any option for an external microphone.

Currently, I am thinking of getting either NEX-5 or soon-to-be-available NEX-5N mainly due to their external microphone options. At this point, I have two quick questions.

First, I wonder if the current external microphone for NEX3/5 will be compatible with the NEX-5N. Or Will Sony introduce another dedicated external microphone for the NEX-5N?

Second, as far as I read, the current NEX3/5 shoot only in Automatic mode. I wonder how NEX-5N's option will be. If the next model allows manual shooting options, I will probably wait. Do you think the current C3 will be a hint for the 5N?

Any comments are appreciated.
Thanks,
