I love the "Hand-Held twilight" program for lowlight shots
5 January 2015
Summary: Allows complete manual control. I love the "Hand-Held twilight" program for lowlight shots. I don't like the fact that bracketing for exposure & the timer (and remote timer) settings & are in the same menu that allows only one selection.
Summary: I know I will love the camera once I start using it the right way. I like the fact that it came with all the attachments for doing pro work, But its been a long time since I did any camera work .Managing a band these days you have to be very precise in recording and still pictures.
Summary: I bought this after seeing some great user reviews and technical evaluations. I have used a Canon 50D for several years but found I was getting tired of schlepping it and a bag of lenses around.
Summary: I'm giving the NEX 7 a four star rating and not a five because of the difficulty of operating the camera....just TOO many options! However, I bought the Sigma 19mm lens to go with it, and I am most pleased with the results (the pics) and amazed at the amount of detail that the 24MP's pick up in 8X10...
Summary: I love this camera. I would give it five stars if it wasn't for the location of the video record button. Others have complained about this and I thought it was a bit picky but I do find it annoying. I hit that button by mistake at least once every time I take that camera out.
Summary: UPDATE 7/20/2013 I bought a 50mm 1.8 prime and hoped to do some portraits with the camera but the non-standard hot-shoe was a pain (the adapter raised the wireless trigger so I couldn't fit camera in bag--little things like this drive me crazy). The bigger problem is focusing.
Extremely loud shutter but best of the NEX line and a good compact with adapters for any lens

Summary: I bought this on impulse, then bought an M-mount adapter and the 55-210mm Sony lens. The kit lens and the 55-210 are "ok", but I'd probably advise going for the body and one of the slightly higher-end lenses.
