G1X vs Nex 5n for travel
Sep 16, 2013

I just spent a week in Manhattan with these two cameras,

The G1X was clunky and obtrusive because the flip screen sticks out sideways and fouls the camera strap, and worst of all lit is maddenly slow for street shooting,  but the photos were very sharp and well exposed, extremely sharp. I was going to get rid of the camera until I saw the results.

The Sony Nex 5n was a pleasure to shoot with, light, very fast response, unobtrusive, but the photos were badly exposed and out of focus and with strange orange or blue color casts. The menu system was Byzantine, really crazy and the color balance was wrong no matter what I did.. The camera was on loan, and after shooting with it but before seeing the results I was ready to buy one. But not now.

Now I am looking at the RX100 II.
