the long-awaited camera (Sony NEX-7)

Unlike Don who lives in picturesque Quincy near beautiful Boston gets the high class first priority treatment on all the latest gadgets, for poor person like Antony, I waited for more than 2 months for one camera.

I made my order on 2nd January 2012. While chatting to Rev. Dr. Wu Yi today, I got a voice mail today from the camera shop informing me that my long-awaited camera has finally arrived. Without further delay, I went to Bondi Junction to pick it up.

Presenting Sony NEX-7 (with 18-55mm lens kit) and Sony LA-EA2 (E-Mount Adaptor):

Sony NEX-7

Quick features of Sony NEX-7:

  • compact and light weight: 291g (body only) or 350g (body + battery + memory card)
  • Ultra-High 24.3MP Exmor™ APS HD CMOS sensor
  • World's fastest release time lag of 0.02 second (as of August 2011)
  • Full 1080p, H.264 video recording. Best of all, it works with iMovie.
  • "Customizable and intuitive TRINAVI operation "
  • High resolution XGA OLED Tru-Finder and built-in flash
  • 10fps continuous shooting (Speed priority continuous mode)
  • Tiltable 3" Xtra Fine LCD with TruBlack Technology

It's not just Full HD 1080p, but it also “Works with iMovie.”

I also bought a Mount Converter to convert α-mount lens (from my Sony α350) to E-mount camera (this one).

Finally, in DSLR world, this Sony NEX-7 is remarkably compact. To complement this compact high power camera, a compact camera bag is needed:

I do have to apologise the poor image quality. As my Sony Alpha 350 is currently in repair (under insurance), I had to take photos with my iPhone 4S or Laurent's Sony DSC-TX5 camera.

The timing can't be any better. I now have a good camera to take the super important delivery this Friday (hopefully).

Hi Antony,
Is that bag a Sony one? Looks nice...
Enjoy the NEX-7 - look forward to seeing some of your shots soon!

Thank you.
It is a Sony camera bag, designed for NEX cameras (with one kit lens). It fits your NEX-5N perfectly.
