Those of you who have been following the blog for a while might remember that nearly a year ago ago I bought a Sony NEX5N as a ‘travel’ camera (https://ianbeattiephotography.wordpress.com/2012/09/15/thoughts-on-the-pocket-rocket/).

Ashamedly I must admit that although I loved the NEX and had the utmost confidence in its ability, until a couple of weeks ago I had clung to the big Nikon DSLR like a toddler to a safety blanket and despite my best efforts I just couldn’t bring myself to leave home without it.

While packing for a short sojourn to Singapore 2 weeks ago I finally manned up and with great trepidation put the Nikon, camera bag and associated gear back in the cupboard. The NEX, 16mm and 50mm lens and a small 6 inch tripod were thrown into my shoulder bag and we were off.

For 5 days I blazed away from early morning to late at night in all kinds of locations and in all types of lighting and was not once disappointed.
What’s more it’s so unobtrusive people either, don’t notice it or just choose to ignore it. Pull out a DSLR in an airport and security is all over you like white on rice, but not once was I given so much as a sideways glace as I roamed around happily snapping away.

And a warning for the purist amongst you, Turn Away Now……… all but a few of the couple of thousand photos I took were taken handheld with the ISO set at ‘auto’ and the camera set on Program mode.

It amazes me that a camera you carry in your pocket can packs that much grunt.
