    Firmware updates are available at the Sony website.

    The NEX5 is an awesome camera. To maximize its potentials as well as your own as a photographer, I suggest you enroll in a good basic photography course or at least grab a good basic photography book. That way, you will learn in a structured way.

    You were referring to "shallow depth of field".

    It's also called "Bokeh" which is captured by shooting with aperture wide open (Max Aperture = lowest number).

    Here's the proper definiton of Bokeh: Bokeh is a Japanese word that refers to the quality of out of focus blurring resulting from a particular lens. Please note: you cannot “add bokeh” or “have more bokeh” as bokeh is a subjective qualitative term in regards to the lens, not a quantitative term in regards to a photograph.


    The blurred background in itself is not Bokeh because bokeh refers not the blur but to the perceived quality of the blur.

    Salamat sa explanation ng Bokeh. I was able to update my firmware from version 2 to Version 3. I was also able to update the PB software. It took awhile to download it :-) Now I can take my time learning.

    I am attending a party tonight, so mostly indoors. Shoud I alternate between handheld twilight, nightview and night portrait options?

    Any experiences you guys would like to share in indoor and low light outdoor shots with this particular U-beaut camera?

    I am reading a lot of the reviews and it seems even for enthusiasts in SLR, the NEX 5 is capable. That is, if the new set up/user interface is ok to the SLR afficionados. I also read that the PASM modes are ok for a camera this size.
