As you know our friend and professional fashion photographer Mike Kobal owns a Sony NEX-7. And he used that camera for a shooting with Katherine Crockett. She is the Martha Graham’s principal dancer! More about that here: http://www.mikekobal.com/blog/?p=5203. Ronmartblog posted the NEX-7 review: “My only real gripe about this camera are the annoying menu system and its lack of quick access to things like white balance and macro mode. I also hated that I didn’t have a zoomable live view like I would on a DSLR. If you are hell bent on going with a more compact alternative to a DSLR, then I think you’ll be happy with the Sony NEX-7.” Zelenpol announced some colored NEX-7 half cases. The Black version is already available on eBay (Click here).
NEX-7 price check at Amazon, Adorama, B&H, J&R, eBay.
One of the most annoying problems of the NEX-5N is the overheating issue. A very (non)practical solution is to use a cooling fan! Just check the video I posted here on top I hope the upcoming new NEX-F5 will not have that kind of problem anymore!
And here are some other NEX-5n, NEX-7 and VG-20 reviews:
Can the superexpensive new Leica X2 beat the Sony NEX-5n? Focus Numerique (Click here) posted a noise comparison. The difference is negligible. You just pay that Leica name on that camera
Our reader Randy made aLens test from Nikon and Mamiya lenses on the NEX 7 on Flickr (Click here).
Charles from Videoacademy (Click here) put the world up side down. The question was, id the Vg-20 videocamera good enough for still photography?

A huge discussion about Sony unsatisfying firmware update strategy followed the latest NEX-7 Redneck article. David Kilpatrick explained at Photoclubalpha (Click here) what’s going on with Sony: “Sony does listen, but it listens harder to new potential buyers than to existing owners. It listens to the untapped market, to the people who buy someone else’s camera instead of Sony. After all, it’s already got the existing owners. It only needs to listen to them as far as the next camera upgrade goes for the proportion who will be likely to change frequently.” And indeed he starts to talk about the new F3 and A37 cameras: “The new NEX-F3 is a perfect instance of listen to the unconverted market.” And at the end he says: “All Sony’s advances are geared to making these larger format cameras more satisfying to the upgrading user.Now we just wait for them to produce 2012′s models designed to keep the upgrading Alpha and NEX user equally happy.” Couldn’t agree more!!!
Lori Grunin from Cnet USA (Click here) posted the first full Sony NEX-F3 review: “Though it doesn’t wow us for any particular aspect, the Sony Alpha NEX-F3 is a nice overall package for photographers looking for something with better photo quality and more flexible than a point-and-shoot.”
Yesterdays NEX-F3 announcement may not be a hell of a story but we alreayd have a hell of a NEX-7 Here is a list of the latest news and test done with the camera. On top you can watch the video of Doug Kaye and Frederick Van Johnson discussing the NEX-7. The NEX lens range may be limited but you cans till use plenty of third party lenses on the cameras: Björn Utpott (Click here) tested the Canon FD 55mm f/1.2 lens on the NEX-7: “If you don’t mind the weight though, you’ll end up with a lens that not only has an impressive aperture number inscribed on the barrel, but one that actually produces fine images at that aperture.”
All Canon FD lenses can be found here on eBay (Click here).
Reghardware (Click here) posted a full NEX-7 review: “The camera is not flawless but is commendable, as it arguably delivers the best image and video quality of its class. But this comes at a price and in this respect I’m unconvinced that is particularly good value for money, especially when up against its stablemate, the NEX-5N”
Hi everyone. We rented the Zeiss Loxia 35mm f/2 and Sonnar 35mm f/2.8 this past weekend and took them out for a spin. I thought I'd share some photos here with this community. The in-depth review is here. http://ilovehatephoto.com/2015/03/03/zeiss-loxia-35mm-f2-0-vs-zeiss-sonnar-35mm-f2-8-lens-review-comparison/ We went to visit the Endeavour space shuttle at the California Science Center. What at sight! […]
Hi guys , I have the kit 16-50 and the sel 35. I like the 35 but in wideangle or exterior shots of landscapes / buildings its not enough. I'm contented with the 35 as my portrait lens although I think the sel 50 is also good for the job. In a recent trip […]
Hi guys, got my a6000 last july and I was wondering for those who have been with nex 5,6, 7 etc cameras. Do each upgrade aside of the new features / makes each new nex camera better than the one from the last year and previous generations ? I'm talking mostly of image quality […]
Hey Folks, for me the FE 28mm f2 is the most interesting lens of the four new lenses so I took the time to gather all the available information and full resolution samples images and the MTF graph and analyzed them to summarize what we know abut the lens so far. So if you are […]
So here is my experience. I now have two A7II. One is going to be converted to IR. I will get an a7000 as a back up when it comes out.Both cameras show vignetting in the upper right corner the is much more obvious than the other corners.I have been testing like crazy looking at […]
