Supports Full HD Video

supports Full HD video

The NEX-5 + E 18-55mm supports Full HD video, which is unusual. Most of the other digital cameras that have been available for a similar time to this camera do not support Full HD video.

We compared all the other digital cameras which support Full HD video to this camera and we think the SLT-A35Y + DT 18-55mm + DT 55-200mm, and the DSC-WX80 both from Sony or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ60 which has better reviews is also worth considering.
