No fair not saying which camera you bought.


A Sony NEX-5N ... any camera is a compromise, but this has most of what I want. It feels good in my hands, takes good photos (for its price class), and has what is for me the least objectionable UI of the cameras in its price range.

The UI is a hodgepodge of pieces and it is decidedly "non-analog" in its nature. For a really good UX on a camera you need analog controls. This only has a good analog zoom adjustment. But the other controls are not as bad as other cameras in its class and the image quality is very good for a $600 camera.

Digital cameras UIs, particularly for consumer grade and prosumer cameras, still have a long way to go.
