Sony Alpha NEX-7: Fully equipped with a viewfinder, hot shoe, flash and many controls.
Many buttons and wheels
When operating concept leaves the familiar Sony NEX-philosophy with a few buttons and menu much use. The NEX-7 has so many controls as no NEX before - though not a mode dial. Three dials control almost all the camera settings. The button next to the trigger you change the function of the wheels. Each program has its own recording function assignment. You can activate three assignments and a fourth set itself. Ultimately you have with the various levels of exposure settings, focus modes, color illustration, HDR and dynamic optimization under control. However, an even greater freedom in the assignment would be desirable. About the play: all three wheels to move from image to image, an enlarged succeed but only indirectly through other keys.
The NEX-7 is filming in sharp full HD resolution. The maximum image quality can be obtained from a data rate of 28 Mbit / s and 50 frames per second. There are sound in stereo, on request from the external microphone. Sony has not provided manual levels. After all, you can adjust exposure while filming. The auto focus sharpens when needed continuously, smoothly and accurately.
As a battery used in Sony focuses on the many Alpha DSLR model NP-FW50. The energy is sufficient for good two hours of video or 630 photos. As with photographs of the Alpha 77 and 65 you more energy efficient if you use the display instead of the viewfinder.
