Sony Alpha NEX-7

consumersearch.com
16 May 2014
  • Conclusion: The Sony Alpha NEX-7 delivers impressive image quality -- approaching that of a big digital SLR (single-lens reflex) camera -- in a smaller package. But the Sony's lack of lenses, weaker body and video-overheating problems hurt its ratings.
  • Pros: Big-camera image quality in a small package, Exceptionally efficient control layout, Best-in-class panorama and HDR features
  • Cons: Disappointing lens selection, Video mode can overheat the camera, Not weather-sealed

Sony Alpha NEX-7

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: Sony's high-end mirrorless camera, the Alpha NEX-7 is a top performer brimming with features, but a camera of this caliber deserves a better kit lens.
  • Pros: Compact body. 24-megapixel resolution. Articulating LCD. Crisp OLED EVF. Built-in flash. 1080p60 video recording.
  • Cons: So-so kit lens. Proprietary hot shoe. Not as good at high ISO as other NEX cameras. Easy to start recording video unintentionally.

  • Pros: One of the most customizable models on the market. Sparkling 1080p video at 60 fps.

  • Excerpt: Sony hopes to shift the tide in the war between micro four-thirds technology and mirrorless DSLRs with their newly announced NEX-7. Its 10.3 ounce, magnesium alloy body contains the same 24.3-megapixel Exmor APS HD sensor that has made Sony’s Alpha line of DSLRs the talk of the camera town.

Sony's trying to cram a DSLR into a much smaller body, but can it pull it off?

7 February 2012
  • Summary: The lower-end NEX cameras are excellent, but they’re designed for a user wanting something between the simple point-and-shoot and the enormous and complex DSLR. The NEX-7 isn’t such a compromise: it’s not quite in DSLR territory without more manual control, but it’s probably close enough for most...
  • Pros: Excellent pictures and video, Fast performance, Very easy to use
  • Cons: Still doesn't have DSLR-level manual control, OLED viewfinder is mediocre, Lens ecosystem isn't as good as Nikon or Canon
