NEX-7 rendering from Tecnofotografia (not the real camera!)
Sorry if I didn’t post anything about the NEX-7 camera since a very long time. But there is a good reason for that. Sony itself was evaluating the current [shoplink 3003]NEX-3/5[/shoplink] response from the market before to define the NEX-7 specs and release date. I still don’t know those specs but I can give you a few info from my good sources.
1) The NEX-7 is coming by early 2011 and before the A77 announcement! One source told me that the NEX-7 will be announced in February-March.
2) Unlike the NEX-3/5 the NEX-7 has a built-in EVF. I heard the EVF should be very advanced and use a new OLED technology!
3) The NEX-7 is optimized fot video recording but unlike the older rumors it doesn’t come with ExmorHD. It will record 1080p with AVCHD 24mbit/s (same as the Panasonic GH2)
4) I received some specs from unkown sources but I am currently trying to “squeeze” more info from my trusted sources. Take it with a grain of salt but one new source (also not reliable for now!) said the NEX-7 will have In-body stabilization. I repeat take it easy, I also don’t know why the NEX-7 should have in body IS
I didn’t find any NEX-7 news on the world wide web. Only [shoplink 4664]asian eBay resellers (Click here)[/shoplink] are speculating with a NEX-7 release :)
I rated that rumor with SR4 so some things could not be entirely correct. I really hope to give you far more precise details soon! I also need your help to get more info about the NEX-7.
