Sony Alpha NEX-7

CNET
2 April 2012
  • Summary: With a lot to like and just a little to dislike, the Sony Alpha NEX-7 comes up a winner, albeit an expensive one.
  • Cons: As with many competing products, the camera's JPEG algorithms need some optimization, some aspects of operation feel a little laggy, and it's missing some useful features.

Sony NEX-7 review

theverge.com
28 March 2012
  • Summary: 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 too much quality or manual control — has been Sony’s NEX line.
  • 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

Sony NEX-7

19 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Sony NEX fans have been waiting for more controls to quickly adjust various exposure settings in a hurry, rather than dig into the menu, and I'm sure many had a wish list for this or that extra feature to make the existing NEX design just a little better. I say "just a little" because the satisfaction level with the existing NEX series is pretty high.
  • Pros: Exceptional resolution and crispness in images, SUPER body & user interface: The TriNavi interface is our absolute favorite UI, ever. Period., Built-in flash; a first for the NEX line, Excellent image noise, even at high ISO levels, Maximum ISO of 16,000 (good quality to 3,200), Very responsive; never had the feeling that we were waiting on the camera, Fast AF performance; competitive with SLRs, Very fast release lag when pre-focused, Good shot to shot speed and excel...

Sony Alpha NEX-7

PC Magazine
20 December 2011
  • 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.

Sony Alpha NEX-7 Review: A Top-Notch Mirrorless Camera

Digital Camera Review
7 December 2011
  • Summary: The NEX-7 is the Sony interchangeable lens mirrorless for folks who'd like to shoot with a DSLR but don't want the size and weight penalties associated with that sort of platform. Just to make sure they didn't limit their audience, Sony included typical point-and-shoot features such as a smile shutter, face detection and registration, automatic and scene shooting modes.
  • Pros: Good image quality, Good video quality, Good shutter lag and AF acquisition time, Excellent viewfinder
  • Cons: Cost, Awkward playback regimen, Monitor/viewfinder interface can impact battery life

Sony NEX-7 review

What Digital Camera
15 October 2011
  • Summary: The NEX7's design is an interesting mix: we're keen on the variety of controls, yet the ongoing lack of a mode dial and awkward placement of some controls does let the overall design down. Yet with customisation available to a range of buttons it's easier to command this NEX than any other model in the series - and that can only be a good thing.

Sony Alpha NEX-7

Camera Labs
1 August 2011
  • Summary: Until now the lack of proper manual controls and a built-in viewfinder compromised the suitability of NEX models as DSLR replacements, but the arrival of the NEX-7 changes all that. The NEX-7's ultra high resolution OLED has 2.4 million pixels making it the highest resolution EVF on any compact system camera by a large measure. It's big, bright and the closest you'll get to optical viewfinder performance in a mirrorless camera.
  • Pros: Big, bright ultra high resolution EVF., 10fps burst mode., 1080p60/50 movie mode., PASM modes for movie shooting., Continuous AF in movie mode.
  • Cons: Bracketing limited to +/-0.3 or +/-0.7EV., Poor menu layout and organisation., Movie button easy to accidentally press., AF struggles in poor light., Limited selection of native E-mount lenses.

Sony NEX-7 review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • Summary: The mass-market appeal of compact system cameras is essential for the category to work. High sales drive down prices and allow development into improved operations and performance. As photographers, however, we see compact system cameras from a different perspective. They offer a small creative solution, as a second camera or as a replacement for an old heavy camera bag.
