Amazing camera with incredible image quality and very friendly settings
12 November 2014
Summary: Amazing camera with incredible image quality and very friendly settings. The lenses are powerful and sleek. I have a canon adapter and a whole slew of old fd lenses look incredible. Now the bad. Video causes the camera to overheat after recording for anywhere between 3-20 minutes.
Summary: OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) dislplays are notoriously unreliable. They look great in the beginning, but they have a reputation for suddenly doing very dim or just pitch-black, with no warning, and with no way to get them back to original brightness.
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.
Summary: I come from a commercial and artistic photography background. I really thought this would be a great system to fill the gap that was left by cameras like to Lica many years ago. That is, small, silent and very hight res. imagery. Perhaps I could put aside my full CCD size camera for a while.
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.

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...
