Sony NEX-7 review

 

The Sony NEX-7 compact system camera takes some beating, but is it worth the price?

Packed with features ; Adjustable screen ; Electronic OLED viewfinder

Expensive ; Bulkier than rivals ; No in-body image stabilisation

Sony NEX-7 review

 

The space between compact cameras and DSLRs is where it's at right now. As we type, the cream of the world's camera designers is feverishly attempting to crack the nut that contains full DSLR features and control within a body the size of a compact....

Sublime photo quality, Compact design, Tilting display can be useful

Not as stylish as rivals

Sony NEX-7

 

Compact system cameras (CSC) have developed over the years and are now as much a part of the photographic tapestry as their DSLR cousins. It was only a matter of time before a high-end model would hit the shelves, and it's Sony's NEX-7 that takes that...

Great OLED viewfinder, decent image quality at high resolution

Low-light focusing is poor, some layout issues, need more pro lenses in range

The NEX-7 ticks some very big boxes. It’s got the electronic viewfinder department wrapped up and tied off with a big bow, the movie mode is great and the 10fps burst mode is an attractive option. Image quality is impressive, even more so when...

Sony NEX-7 review

 

Does Sony's new CSC hit the NEX level?

Excellent image quality ; Very good dynamic range ; Intuitive control layout ; OLED electronic viewfinder

AF struggles in low light ; Limited range of E-mount lenses available ; Setting up customisable controls may take a while to get exactly right

Just as many thought the race to squeeze more pixels onto camera sensors had ended, Sony announced a new flagship model for its NEX line of mirrorless, interchangeable lens cameras in August 2011, with a 24.3Mp rear-illuminated CMOS sensor.

Sony Alpha NEX-7 review

 

It may not be the ne plus ultra of interchangeable-lens cameras, but Sony's Alpha NEX-7 comes closer than almost any I've seen thus far. For this class of camera, the NEX-7 has almost everything: built-in flash, an OLED EVF, a large sensor, a tilting...

The Sony Alpha NEX-7 delivers excellent raw photo and solid video quality in a package that's beautifully and functionally designed, yet relatively compact. Though expensive for an essentially nonprofessional camera, it doesn't seem overpriced.

As with many competing products, the camera's JPEG algorithms need some optimization, some aspects of operation feel a little laggy, and it's missing some useful features.

With a lot to like and just a little to dislike, the Sony Alpha NEX-7 comes up a winner, albeit an expensive one.

Sony NEX-7 review

 

The vaguely rectangular shape of the NEX-7's rear panel lends itself to an easily recognisable layout of controls. Below the viewfinder is the NEX-7's tilting 3.0in LCD screen, which can pivot up and down to allow shooting from the hip or with the...

The next step in Sony's evolution of its NEX interchangeable-lens-but-no-bulky-internal-mirror camera system is technically brilliant: an amazingly detailed and clean image sensor shoehorned into a reasonably compact camera body that's incredibly well...

Sony NEX-7 review

 

All the usual NEX traits: outstanding image and video quality, lethargic autofocus, iffy focus from the kit lens. Sumptuous ergonomics only just help it to justify the high price

Sony NEX-7 review

 

The mass-market appeal of compact system cameras is essential for the category to work. High sales drive down prices and allow development into improved operations and performance.As photographers, however, we see compact system cameras from a...

Sony NEX-7 24.3Mp APS-C compact system camera

 

Review Sony's NEX-7 is its flagship Compact System Camera that's been graced with advanced features to justify the high-end price tag for a pocketable interchangeable lens model. Indeed this 24.3Mp APS-C shooter with a built-in OLED electronic...

The NEX-7 is certainly a great little compact system camera and one that comes closest to the performance and features of a DSLR – something I am quite sure endear it to many advanced and enthusiast photographers. Certainly the electronic viewfinder...
