The NEX-7n is due for a release (maybe in May?). Meantime SAR reader “lhar Gil” (website: www.clickerbug.com) tried to imagine the NEX-7n Frankencamera and sent me this message with picture: “I personally cannot wait for the nex-7n. aside from the sensor improvements, processing, etc., i am also particularly excited about the physical improvements the 7n will bring to the table namely, new hotshoe, mode dial and wifi..so i decided to do a mashup of the nex-6, nex-7, rx-1 and a99 to create a franken-nex-7n as i would have designed it if i were a sony engineer. what do you think about it? close enough? ”
I will take the chance to remind you some unconfirmed NEX-7n specs. And if some designer has some time to waste why not design and send me the new NEX Full Frame camera too?
– New 24 Megapixel APS-C sensor with 1/2 stop improvement and increased dynamic range
– 3, 8 Million dot EVF
– Hybrid Contrast and Phase Detection AF
– Tri Navi design reviewed
– Focus Peaking will be much improved with choice of colors
– Wifi, but no GPS on board.
– Same size and form factor of the current NEX-7 but with a minor redesign
