Excerpt: Love this camera, I was looking for somthing easy to carry around. Great for every day use. Panorama and burst mode and some of my favorite features. Bummed there's no built in wifi but works great with the eye-fi card. Im really happy with the amount of information In the arw files.
Excerpt: I bought my first NEX-7 for >$ with Sony 18-55mm and loved it. Getting another body with another 18-55 plus the superb Sony/Zeiss 16-70 f/4 is a true bargain. The first NEX-7 was converted to Infrared. This new NEX-7 now serves as backup for a a6000.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Quiet, Tilt /Swivel LCD
Excerpt: low light performer better than my d7100 just set it to auto easy to use especially for beginners and just little tweak in ps cs6, its very nice for night photography coz most of the occassion happen at night..
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Tilt /Swivel LCD
Summary: Good mid sized camera. Pictures are amazing and regularly out do DSLR cameras. I would buy it many times over. Also doubles as a pretty extraordinary near professional; video camera. Only waning is that on video mode it can start to over heat after 10-15 min of straight video. So if you need long format video camcorder this is not your camera. But for multiple short clips or youtube type videos it is perfect.
Summary: The NEX-7 is an excellent camera. It has most of the functions of the larger Sony cameras. Example: a very good 24MP sensor, P-A-S-M modes available, Panorama, peaking color, white balance, DRO-HDR, ISO up to 16,000, several drive modes, shoots JPG and RAW+JPG, most of the top-line functions. I gave the camera 5 stars b/c it is a very fine camera - takes excellent shots. Not perfect. A couple of negatives: 1) Steady Shot IN THE LENS.
