By some accounts, Sony botched the NEX-F3. Positioned as the successor to the fantastic C3, it replaced that camera’s slim profile with a bulkier build, but sacrificed basic display tilt functionality in favor of a front-facing model. Image quality was fine, but focusing speeds fell short. Fortunately, the company has redeemed itself with the $750 NEX-5R. The mirrorless camera you’ll read about today represents everything a successful update should: performance has been improved all around, the touchscreen tilts in every which way and the design has changed only for the better.

It’s also the first Sony mirrorless cam to feature WiFi, along with the company’s new PlayMemories Camera Apps. Wireless connectivity is undoubtedly becoming a popular addition in higher-end models, but that doesn’t mean it’s a feature users are demanding. With Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Camera, connectivity — 4G in particular — makes perfect sense, but how does that web experience transfer to a tiny 3-inch touchscreen? And does it detract from usability overall? Join us past the break for a closer look at this very capable 16.1-megapixel interchangeable lens camera.
