    Hello Nex-Folks.
    I'm new to this forum and to the world of system cameras as well.
    I bought a Nex-5N some weeks ago in ebay.

    First of all I sent the camera to service to fix the video clicking noise problem.
    Now the camera is back and i start exploring the possibilities and settings.
    I'm coming from a Canon G12 so I really like the combination of automatic and manual controls.

    My equipment contains:
    - Sony Nex-5N (black)
    - Sony SEL-1855
    - Sony SEL-55210
    - Sony SEL-16f28 + ECU1 + ECF1

    Software:
    - ACDSee Pro 6
    - Corel Paintshop Pro X5
    - Gimp 2.8 + RawTherapee

    I'm not a total newbie when i comes to photography and software but I still have a lot to learn!

    Greetings from snowy Germany

    Hi Markus, welcome to the forum. And that's a very capable equipment set. I used PSP before I switched to a Mac 10 years ago.

    Hi Markus. I love Southern Germany. We go there for winter sports every year, and sometimes to visit my wife's family. I expect to see some beautiful landscapes.

    Hi Markus, I'm not too far, in France, and have faraway German ancestors ;)
    Welcome to the club, your set-up is very nice, now you gotta share some pics !
    I'm the portrait and legacy 50 mm lens freak around here, so if any of that is of interest to you, feel free to ask.
