Re: Nex 5n noisy lcd when shooting in low light

Yes it is normal. To show a usable picture in live view you have to use a kind of video mode, taking 25 or 30 fps,. In dark situations, the camera has to bump up the ISO, to give you a usable view, this can end in noisy liveview. The exposuretime off the picture in the end is shorter and at lower ISO and will not show the noise.Why your Canon did not have this? Maybe that camera used a larger apperture, or it applied more noise reduction in live view. Maybe the LCD was smaller, not showing the noise as much...
