Nice photos but drawbacks to consider

David A Palmer, Amazon
15 October 2013
  • Summary: I got this camera after all the rave reviews, went out, took a photos and was floored by the quality of photos. Then I went out the next evening, took a bunch of photos and was floored that not one was useable by the amount of dust pumped in on the sensor by the lens.

The problem isn't the camera...

David Siegfried, Amazon
21 July 2013
  • Summary: As the title of my review states, the problem isn't the camera itself, which is a tight and innovative piece of equipment with one of the best APS-C sensors to date. The compact size, image quality, and ease of use (once you get used to the radical design) is among the best of any camera made.

Great camera but..

Anton Nichta "ton", Amazon
26 January 2013
  • Summary: For stills, this camera shoots great photos! As far as videos are concerned, it's pretty much useless if you are going to shoot more than 3 minutes at a time. During the video shoot, it eats battery power like there is no tomorrow! It shows the overhear Icon and will shut down.

HDR and autoexposure bracketing users: Can not use self-timer or remote release with AEB

Midwest Jim "Midwwest Jim", Amazon
18 November 2012
  • Summary: Sony's October 2012 firmware update finally expanded the NEX 7's autoexposure bracketing steps from an almost useless three exposures of +/- 0.3 or 0.7 EV's (or stops) to a more reasonable three exposures with up to +/- 3 EV's.

Great camera but failed in less than 2 weeks and terrible customer service

Andy B, Amazon
7 November 2012
  • Summary: Bought a new new-7 from amazon less than 2 weeks ago. Second time shooting a football match and the EVF failed - flashed an error saying it was disabled and allow it to cool (odd given it was not much above freezing) - over 24 hours later and still the same problem and no functional EVF which was a...

DSLR users might be disappointed.

MrsSmith, Amazon
25 October 2012
  • Summary: I bought this camera as an "upgrade" to my Canon XSI. The amazing reviews and small size drew me in, as well as its impressive specs. Well, I guess I didn't know what I didn't know, and I am honestly slightly disappointed. Side by side, IN GOOD LIGHTING this one beats my entry level DSLR hands down.

Examine your lens because it's not under the warranty and I think Amazon sent me a returned/used camera instead of new

Just another number, Amazon
25 July 2012
  • Summary: I bought the Nex-7 with the 18-55mm lens back in March. Nice clear pictures. Looks way better than a smartphone camera picture. Everyone I know who saw the pictures it produces can really tell the difference on how nice it looks.

Great camera except for the recording button.

Terry Hurst "Ter-", Amazon
17 May 2012
  • Summary: This is one awesome camera. It is light, and compact (even with my 18 to 200 mm zoom sony lens). With good light I am able to take very sharp pictures even when I am zoomed out to 200 mm. I have only one complaint (or I would give this camera 5 stars). That is the recording button.

Firmware Bug Unfixed

A. Gabriele, Amazon
12 May 2012
  • Summary: Auto-Focus operates continually while the camera is powered up, not just when the shutter button is partially depressed. This drains the battery very quickly and overheats the processor.

I was disappointed

Stephen Schneiderman, Amazon
20 April 2012
  • Summary: I received my Nex 7 with great anticipation. The still imaging was as I had expected very good, however when I went to use the camera for video I found that the camera overheat light came on in a short time. I was shooting 2 to 3 minute sections at a time.
