Excerpt: i think the camera overall is OK but there are too many features for my tastes. Also the record button is in a place where its easy to hit accidentally and begin recording. I prefer a bit simpler camera
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality
Excerpt: The Nex-7 appears to be a good camera with some drawbacks that may only be based on my expectations, experience, and preferences. The Mirror-less design makes it a compact and light addition to one's kit but and in smaller hands offers some formidable features.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Tilt /Swivel LCD
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.
Excerpt: I was excited about having a small camera that had speed and high resolution to substitute my large SLR's. Unfortunately, this did not make the grade. First, the viewfinder is too tiny for my aging eyes. I aso didn't like the controls with the two knobs on top of the camera.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality
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.
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.
Excerpt: Camera size and features are what attracted me to this camera as second system to carry when I wanted to go light. It lives up to the expectations for my still photography. Video is very good quality. There appears to be an issue with the video system.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Tilt /Swivel LCD

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

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...
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.
