Article of The Day: Sony NEX-7

Assalamualaikum and good morning to all Mirul Photography blog readers.

Today I want to write an article about the new Sony NEX-7 which is the high-end model in NEX family. Let's take a look at the camera first.

NEX-7 featured with 24.3 Megapixel APS-C and it was the same sensor as new Sony DSLT (a65 and a77), 10 fps continuous shooting (same as Nikon 1), the EVF (which the only NEX model that have EVF, neither NEX-3 nor NEX-5 have it), Dual dial button (to adjust Aperture Value and Shutter Speed), build-in Alpha Hotshoe for flash, ISO100-16000, and of course the FullHD Video 1080p!

What about the price? You can get it at retail store at $1,199.99 (, body only) which is around RM3,815.00 at Malaysia!! Wow what an expensive compact body! What about the lens? Sony offers their new line of E-Mount lens the 24mm Zeiss f/1.8 at $999.99 ( You can also use the old standard lens from NEX-3 and NEX-5 (the 18-55 zoom lens, 16mm pancake f/2.8, and 55-210 telephoto)..

Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 E-Mount
As a conclusion, this camera is quite perfect for journalist who didn't want to carry their heavy gears during outstation since most journalist used to traveled either with the 2.8 lenses (16-50, 24-70, 28-70, 70-200, 80-200, 200mm and more) or all around lens (18-200, 18-250, 28-300, 24-200) which is very heavy to bring together! Overall this camera just perfect for journalist that only wants to shoot landscape pictures, wide shot of actions and more since the E-mount does not offers the f/2.8 telephoto lenses...

That's all for my review. It's depends on what the photographers loves at.. A compact interchangeable camera or the DSLR for travel. The conclusion is only my opinion about it's sizes and weight. Those conclusion are not to argue those journalist who carries a lot of stuffs during outstation since I also bring the DSLR everywhere I go even it is heavy. Thanks for reading. Enjoy!

Stay tuned for more updates!
