Sony NEX American Photo Editors Choice Award Winner

The NEX cameras have won an American Photo Editor's Choice Award.


The winners of this year's Editor's Choice Awards had to meet the highest standard ever: For American Photo's editorial team to choose them, they had to qualify as "game-changing"—to have transformed, or have the potential to transform, the very way photographers work. To be fair to all the other great photo products that came to market this year, that's a tough standard to meet in a field in which progress is largely incremental. But the rigor we brought to bear on the task challenged our preconceptions and helped us transcend our usual category-based thinking.


Many of our winners are exemplars of larger trends in the industry. Sony’s NEX system joins the burgeoning ILC (Interchangeable-Lens Compact) phenomenon, significantly advancing the convergence of still and video capture.


Maybe more unusual, though, is the NEX-5’s fraternal twin, a camcorder called the NEX-VG10. It incorporates the same sensor, lens mount and LCD screen as the NEX-5, not to mention most other features, including still capture. That’s huge news, because it’s the first of its kind with an APS-C-sized chip and silent-focusing inter- changeable optics, thereby offering filmlike shallow focus, low-light prowess and better video handling than any DSLR. And it costs a fraction of any professional equivalent.
