Review: Sony NEX-7

Wired
10 May 2012
  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Excerpt: We were bowled over by Sony's mid-price compact system camera, the Sony NEX-5N , so we couldn't wait to get our hands on the flagship NEX-7. It's a seriously handsome camera, with bold, business-like contours constructed from magnesium alloy.

  • Cons: Dial-and-wheel interface can be confusing, Menu system is unnecessarily complicated, Auto ISO artificially limited, hampering low-light shots

  • Conclusion: The NEX-7 ticks some very big boxes. It’s got the electronic viewfinder department wrapped up and tied off with a big bow, the movie mode is great and the 10fps burst mode is an attractive option.
  • Pros: Great OLED viewfinder, decent image quality at high resolution
  • Cons: Low-light focusing is poor, some layout issues, need more pro lenses in range
