About the NEX 5N screen
Apr 25, 2012

I just wanted to ask a couple of questions about the screen of the NEX 5n.

Do you feel you are losing valuable viewing space with the widescreen format?
Is it a problem looking at detail?

Why manufacturers chose this screen format for a stills camera i do not understand. Don't photographers complain about this?

When the screen is flipped out at 90 degrees to the camera body the screen comes level with the top plate and so no shadow is cast on the screen by any part of the camera.
Is it usable in this position on a sunny day?

With a larger zoom I will probably be holding the camera at waist level so the screen will be flipped up facing the sky.
