Nikon just unveiled the new Nikon D3200 which uses the same Sony 24 Megapixel sensor of the Sony A77 sensor. It will be very interesting to see if there is any noticeable difference in terms of RAW image quality due the Sony’s transparent mirror and Nikon own “tweaks”. Price and specs info of the Nikon are up at Amazon (Click here). I guess DxOmark will soon test the camera and speaking of DxOmark they just published the Canon 5DmarkIII test. Why is it interesting? It has exactly the same score of the Sony NEX-7! CLick here to see the markIII versus NEX-7 comparison.
The video on top is a extremely long discussion about the NEX-7. I didn’t know Sergey Brin from Google was using the NEX-7!
Luminous Landscape (Click here) re-evaluated the NEX-7 after a six months use: “This is the mirrorless camera that other manufacturers have to recon with, and for the moment is, in my opinion, one of the best available choices in a compact system camera for the serious photographer.”
Full NEX-7 review at Stuckincustoms (Click here): “If you are a veteran DSLR shooter that is needs action-photography performance, low-light sharpness with excellent ISO performance, or the flexibility of a robust lens system, then the Sony NEX-7 may not be for you.”
Full Sony NEX-7 in Stock and Price check:
The NEX-7 and A65 got the TIPA price award (Click here to see the website). The NEX-7 won the best expert mirrorless price. You may would think that the camera has beaten the main contender the Fuji X PRO 1…but this isn’t true. The Fuji won the Best Professional mirrorless camera category. I don’t get the difference between “expert” and “professional” category
The A65 won within the category best advanced DSLR.
According to top sources the upcoming next Sony full frame cameras “main feature” will be the low price. What does it mean? There will be no new big special feature compared to the actual A77 camera (a part of course the bigger full frame sensor and improved EVF). Sony learned from the A77 customer reaction and improved many details. To me that sounds good! I don’t need new marketing bla bla features. The A99 should “just work”. The A99 will very likely feature a new 24 Megapixel full frame sensor. My suggestions? Improve the JPG engine, release the camera with a mature firmware (no more blackouts).
I have an A850 and 12 lenses and lots of accessories. I bought the A99 but now I am not sure. I am thinking of returning it and buying the A7R. And selling my alpha lenses and stuff and start getting the Es. I love the Alpha body. If I knew the line will continue […]
Hi Guys, I ordered two bundles. For the first bundle, Amazon shipped the camera and the grip, but not the bag and the SD card. For the second bundle, they haven't shipped anything at all yet, (order was placed on Saturday through 2-day shipping). My question is: Has everyone received their orders for this […]
