How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

The NEX-5N shoots great stills and videos, and will (sort of) fit in your pocket. If you're upgrading from a point-and-shoot, or want something a little lighter than your DSLR without skimping on quality, this is the one to get. Recent price drops mean the 5N is even more attractive as a great entry point into the world of interchangeable-lens compact cameras. However, those price drops coincide with the launch of the new NEX-5R, which adds WiFi, an improved autofocus system, and downloadable apps. The 5N remains a great camera -- and a great bargain -- but the 5R is now the one to beat, and a gdgt Must-have model.
