Sony Nex 5N And Two Hot Models.


Not Us! Scroll Down.

We wanted to have a little fun with our camera tests and getting really hot models in bikinis seemed like a great way to do it. On a whim I decided to test the new SonyNex5N with a few models. I booked four different models with various skin types from Model Mayhem. Only two made it to the party. Rather than scrap the test we decided to make the best of the situation and test this tiny litte APS-C camera out. I called Nancy Schreiber and explained what our plan was and she suggested using both black and white backdrops. I am so glad that I called her. It made a huge diference in our tests. We also wanted to test the 1920 X 1080 60P frame rate. Hence the models with the garden hose. The camera is so small and lightweight that I was able to rig it to the rope swing in my backyard. I wanted a shot of the girls swinging! I literally attached it to the rope itself. We used two Cardellini mounts attached to each other for that. My right hand man Chirs Collins came up with that solution. We also used various Contax mount Zeiss primes and even got to sneak in the 28-70 f3.5 zoom lens that we just picked up. The Sony Nex5N has a lot of potential. This is one toy that I can really dig. Stay tuned for the test video. Here are a few screen grabs from our shoot. A huge Thanks to Chris Collins and our two lovely models Hazel Estrella and Li Zheng.
