Sensor on 5N and a57
I'm just looking for a quick answer to this question (too busy/lazy to do the research):
Is the sensor on the a57 the same as on the 5N. I really like the 5N and I need a backup for my a65. thanks!
Yes, with a few minor tweaks here and there.
Key differences based on tests available sofar:
A57 sensor runs cooler in video, allowing up to 4 full 30 mins 1080 60P clips with stabilization without overheating, where the 5N is reported to overheat much faster than that in video
5N has a lighter anti aliasing filter, typical for all NEX cameras, resulting in a bit more sharpness at pixel level at the cost of some extra moiré and stairstepping in certain conditions
