Excerpt: I use this camera primarily as a back-up or when I am out and about and don't want to carry my full size DSLRs. This camera is loaded with features and preforms at a surprisingly high level. I have been involved in photography for more than 30 years and have managed my way through many different user manuals. I have to say that the manual that is provided with this camera is one of the most difficult ones to understand I have ever encountered.
Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Great Resolution, Small / Compact
Summary: The quality of the pictures from this camera is top notch. Navigation of the controls is fairly simple. I like the accessibility of camera functions that the two thumbwheels provide. If there is a con, it would have to be the placement of the video record button...have taken many videos unitentionally...which is a nuisance because when you try to take a photo, you have to wait for the video to finish processing - can miss some good shots.
Summary: I'll keep this short and sweet. Image Quality taken in RAW is among the best I've seen. I'm a Pro and use this camera with the Zeiss 24 mm and Sony 50 mm prime for weddings. I post process in Lightroom and the results are phenomenal. The added bonus is the small size and light weight. It beats lugging around a full frame Canon or Nikon all day. My biggest gripe is the lack of dedicated buttons for frequently used features such as Shooting mode, AF selection, ISO, etc...
Excerpt: I was looking for my first serious camera and did exhaustive research on the benefits of mirror-less vs traditional DSLR models. The NEX 7 was not on my list of possibilities due to cost but the bundled offer made it much more affordable. I had been considering the NEX 6 however; in the end I am more than pleased with what the 7 offers though I have to admit that not being WiFi enabled and not having the apps that Sony offers for the 5 & 6 series cameras is a bit...
Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Small / Compact
Excerpt: Overall this is a great camera for me. It's less bulky than my 5D Mark III, and has lots of fun features. I love having the option of an eyepiece when shooting outdoors, and the peaking for manual focus is awesome. There are some things about this camera I truly like more than my 5D. Now, here are the negatives. Short battery life, and battery takes a long time to charge. Camera overheats when shooting video.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
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. I did fined the price to be different from other places. Like around 100.00 dollars, but there was free shipping and no tax.
Excerpt: If you are used to fine focusing on ground glass of other cameras get ready to learn something new. Plan to take some time with the magnification that is suppose to help you focus. It can be cumbersom especially if your eye likes to scan the entire image and quickly manually adjust focus for different areas.
