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.
  • Cons: Software menu is a bit of a dog’s breakfast. Flimsy pop-up flash. At least 0 too expensive.

  • 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.

  • Summary: The NEX-7 packs an awful lot of features into its small body, including an excellent 24 MP APS-C sensor and large high-resolution electronic viewfinder. Its three-dial interface and extensive customizability makes for excellent handling, although its default setup leaves something to be desired.
  • Pros: Three dial interface offers extensive fingertip control, Superb build quality, Excellent 2.4 million-dot OLED EVF in compact, slimline body, 920K dot tilting rear screen, Very high-resolution 24MP CMOS sensor with impressive high-ISO performance, Exceptionally 'deep' feature set including Auto HD...
  • Cons: Out-of-camera JPEGs don't show off the 24MP sensor to its best extent, Auto ISO limited to maximum of 1600, Top-plate dials indistinguishable by touch (most problematic when using EVF), Mystifying default control setup ( e.g . easier to change JPEG sharpness than flash mode), No custom settings m...

7 February 2012
  • Excerpt: In the middle ground between DSLRs and point-and-shoot lies a vast plain filled with all manner of tweener cameras, in all variants of shape, size, price, and quality. Until now, no one has nailed the whole package, but so far the smartest middle ground — smaller body and price, but without losing...
