Sony NEX 7 Review  -  Fantastic Compact System Camera for Photo Enthusiasts

Just like previous models, such as the NEX 3 and NEX 5, Sony’s newest model, the NEX 7 is a compact system camera that provides quality performance while at the same time maintaining its small and lightweight design. However, users may find that the NEX 7 is a bit larger and heavier than the said previous models. Still, though relatively heavier than most compact system cameras, it is far lighter than mid-ranged DSLRs.

One may find that its large design is attributable to the large handgrip of the camera. The handgrip was made bigger to improve the handling of the camera. Also, the kit lens adds to the size and weight of this compact system camera. Still despite the increase in size, the NEX 7 remains to be a favorite among photography enthusiasts as a compact and lightweight camera that offers both ease of use and quality performance. Having discussed the general physical features of this camera, this Sony NEX 7 Review will move on to the main features.

One of the most striking features of this compact camera is the electronic viewfinder or the EVF. One can easily look through the viewfinder and look at the clear crisp image. Some even say that the image in the EVF looks better than reality. Also, what is interesting about this feature is that the digital controls can also be seen.

Another helpful feature of the NEX 7 is the three dial system. Two of the dials are located at the top panel. These can be customized to function as adjustment dials for modifying the ISO, Aperture or Shutter speeds. Aside from these, a lot of reviewers, including this particular Sony NEX 7 Review, find that the tilting camera monitor is especially helpful in shooting low angles as it allows the photographer to select his composition without kneeling down. Other cool features of this camera include the various picture effects such as the retro, HDR and the toy camera effect. The NEX 7 can also be used to shoot HD movies with just a click of a button. However, the most surprising feature of this camera that caught the attention of many veteran photographers is the Intelligent Auto mode. Normally, the Auto mode in most cameras produces less than superior photos. However, the NEX 7’s Intelligent Auto function accurately adjusts the settings accordingly and produces quality photos truly worth printing.

All in all, this Sony NEX 7 review safely concludes that the NEX 7 is compact camera worth purchasing even for expert photographers due to its lightweight characteristic and quality shooting performance.
