      Limited range of E-mount lenses

    The Sony Alpha NEX-7 Black Digital Camera Kit with 18-55 mm lens is a razor sharp and excellent lens with their built-in image stabilization that produces great photos at any focal length and shutter speed.


    This camera conveniently fits into your pocket and it is an easy-to-carry package that you can take anywhere. It’s hard to find good cameras like this that fit your hands without literally being uncomfortable. This one has a great grip and it’s really comfortable to hold even for long periods of time. It is also fairly weight so you won’t feel like you are carrying it around. Most of the time, the lighter weight of this camera makes this a terrific choice for photographers on the run either in lowlands or highlands. As users of this camera you may observe that it may not be the ultra plus of interchangeable-lens cameras but Sony’s Alpha NEX-7 comes closer than almost any of a kind you have ever seen.


    The lens is too big for the size of cameras and its image stabilizer is usually not steady because it is shaky when capturing videos. The camera users must understand that if they zoom in to 55mm on the kit lens, they should physically need to keep it very stable to start with whatever focusing they do in picture taking. You can be sure of capturing more or less 10 photos in one second at the same time while using this camera. This is the first to include a built-in electronic viewfinder which is a move that will delight everyone who prefers using an eye-level viewfinder to an LCD screen. You will even be able to see the results of camera adjustments in real time through the viewfinder.


    It does not only provide a much more detailed view than you might be used to seeing on cameras of this size, it is definitely bigger and brighter. One of the advantages of an electronic viewfinder over an optical one is that it gives an indication of how your shot will look like with the currently selected settings. Videographers will be most likely interested to consider owning this one of a kind camera as it is capable of recording Full HD movies with AF tracking and manual exposure control. This level of control is absolutely satisfying advanced photographers as well. A one-touch video recording button is also provided and its placement is easy to reach without getting in the way or being activated accidentally.


    The battery life of this camera is good and it has a compact and small charger, too, which is really nice. It is proven to be providing plenty of power for a typical day’s shooting. Using the electronic viewfinder rather than the screen appears to wring a little extra life out of the battery which lasted around 400 shots during testing. Overall, the performance of this camera is very good and once you get yourself familiar with the control and features of this NEX-7 you will notice that is very rewarding to shoot with.
