Product Details

Sony NEX-7 Black Digital SLR Camera With 18-55mm Lens, Model NEX7KB

More than a pocket camera, the 24.3 megapixel NEX-7 exceeds expectations. Here’s performance that would give most DSLRs camera envy, including interchangeable lenses, a 2359K dot OLED eye-level TTL viewfinder, up to 10fps shooting, and outstanding Tri-Navi™ 3-dial manual control. HD movies are superb with Full 1920 x 1080 resolution at 60p, 60i and 24p.

Features:

  • DSLR quality in your pocket
    Here’s the same APS-C sensor size as a DSLR, with higher resolution than most DSLRs and the interchangeable lenses that make DSLRs so attractive. Yet the camera is about half the size and weight of a typical DSLR camera. Removing the conventional mirror box and viewfinder makes it possible
  • 24.3 MP; best-in-class resolution
    You get incredible detail and gorgeous enlargements thanks to a 24.3 megapixel sensor. It’s the highest resolution among pocket cameras as of August 2011
  • World’s first OLED viewfinder
    There’s never been anything quite like the Tru-Finder™ OLED electronic viewfinder. For size, speed and brightness even after sunset, this is a gem. This eye-level, through-the-lens, viewfinder begins with 2359K dots for amazing resolution and high contrast ratio for incredible depth. OLED reduces motion blur to a bare minimum. You can also see the results of camera adjustments in real time with superb color and detail
  • Up to 10 fps shooting
    Capture the decisive moment in sports and get the ideal baby photo. Up to 10 fps continuous shooting at full 24.3 MP resolution with exposure and focus fixed at the first frame. Standard continuous shooting at up to 2.5 fps
  • DSLR-class APS C image sensor
    Sensor size is the key to picture quality. The APS C class sensor provides gorgeous imaging with 58% more area than Micro Four-Thirds sensors and an amazing 13 times the area of a point & shoot image sensor
  • Full HD Movies at 60p/60i/24p
    Capture HD Movies in your choice of super-smooth 60p, standard 60i or cinematic 24p, all at Full HD 1920x1080 resolution. AVCHD™ codec delivers stunning picture quality. MP4 codec offers smaller files for easier upload to the web
  • HD movies with full manual control
    Now you don’t need to surrender control when you shoot HD movies. Enjoy the full expressive potential of Program, Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority or Manual (P/A/S/M) control in HD movie mode
  • Tri-Navi™ manual control
    Perfect for experienced shooters, Tri-Navi control gives you three separate control dials for direct, hands-on access to three settings at a time. As just one example, the dials can set aperture, exposure compensation and ISO
  • Built-in pop-up flash
    Enjoy the convenience of flash photography everywhere you go. Guide Number 6
  • Hot shoe for a system flashes
    Take your photography even further with access to the entire range of Sony a system flashes and flash accessories
  • Accepts A Mount lenses via adaptors
    Both the LA-EA1 and EA2 adapters (sold separately) allow you to attach the full range of Sony A mount lenses
  • Phase Detect AF with adaptor
    The LA-EA2 lens mount adaptor (sold separately) is the world’s first with Sony’s award-winning Translucent Mirror Technology. This provides super-fast and accurate Phase Detection AF when used with Sony A mount lenses
  • Tiltable 3.0" LCD
    Sony's 3.0” Xtra Fine LCD™ monitor has 921K dots for superb resolution. The TruBlack™ screen includes a special resin layer to suppress internal reflections, increasing contrast compared to conventional LCDs. Sunny Weather mode boosts visibility even further. Tilts down 45° and up 80° to frame high- and low-angle shots that would otherwise be hit-or-miss
  • Object Tracking AF
    Locks onto a specified object and maintains focus even as the subject moves. Unpredictable subjects stay in focus even while zooming. You can concentrate on composition without worrying about focus
  • World’s shortest release time lag
    Helps ensure that the image you want is the image you get. Once auto focus occurs, release time lag is the delay between fully pressing the shutter release and when the camera actually starts taking the picture. Long lag makes it harder to capture fast-moving objects. The Sony NEX-7 boasts the shortest release time in the world (as of August 2011) at only 0.02 seconds
  • Accepts Sony® E-mount lenses
    Compatible with Sony’s expanded line of E Mount lenses. These smaller, lighter lenses are specifically designed for a compact interchangeable lens cameras. Opens up a world of creative options
  • Peaking function
    Manual focus becomes much easier because peaking highlights the edges that are in focus in your choice of three colors (white, red, or yellow). This is especially helpful during macro or portrait photography where your focus setting can make or break your shot
  • 3D Sweep Panorama™ Mode
    Capture vast scenic vistas and 16:9 shots in spectacular 3D. As you sweep across the panorama, the camera records separate right-eye and left-eye images that make landscapes come alive on your 3D television. Records both JPEG and MPO file formats
  • Sweep Panorama™ Mode
    Capture expansive landscapes automatically. Press the shutter, sweep vertically or horizontally. The camera does the rest, continuously shooting images and stitching them together
  • 6-image layering
    Leverages the fast BIONZ® processor to capture six images in a fraction of a second, and then combine the data. The result is an incredible single image that controls blur in Anti-Motion Blur mode or gets cleaner, sharper nighttime pictures in Hand-held Twilight mode
  • Auto HDR
    High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography captures more scene contrast than a single exposure can handle by combining the best highlight detail from one shot and the best shadow detail from another for one incredible shot. (Recommended for still subjects.)
  • P/A/S/M modes for video and stills
    Enjoy a full range of controls for video and still shooting from the beginner's iAUTO mode to P/A/S/M: Program, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority and Manual. On-screen prompts help you refine your skills, build your confidence and exercise greater creative control

    Pre-focuses as you compose the shot, further reducing focusing time to a bare minimum
  • iAUTO mode
    Unifies and simplifies Sony intelligent technologies. Takes advantage of Intelligent Scene Recognition, Face Detection technology, and Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization without leaving auto mode so you always get the best shot
  • BIONZ® image processor

Chroma noise reduction delivers high-resolution, low-noise photos even at ISO 16000 sensitivity.

  • Accepts non-Sony lenses via adaptor
    You can use the camera with a universe of lenses from Canon, Nikon, Leica, Olympus and others. The success of Sony’s NEX series, combined with the ultra-short 18 mm flange back distance has inspired third-party manufacturers to provide lens adaptors. In addition, Sony has disclosed the E Mount specification to Carl Zeiss, Cosina, Sigma and Tamron
  • 25-point Auto Focus
    25 sensors cover a very wide area of the scene, for accurate focusing even when the subject is far from the center of the frame
  • HDMI® output
    Enjoy HD movies and stunning still images on a compatible HDTV. The camera includes an HDMI® output
  • Stamina™ battery power for up to 400 shots
    Take up to 400 shots on a single charge with Sony® lithium ion Stamina™ battery power (using LCD monitor). Sony's InfoLITHIUM® battery system enables you to see the percent of power remaining, so you can keep shooting in confidence
  • Sony Exmor™ CMOS sensor
    Sony Exmor™ technology uses column-parallel A/D converters for high resolution and high frame rates. Double noise reduction minimizes image noise, even in low light

    I've never read so many negative reviews by people who know next to nothing about this product. At least I've owned and used a Sony camera (A900) for a few years and can attest to the capability of at least one of their products. This is a great new product. It's got the competition scrambling to develop a similar product and to incorporate some of these innovations into their own mainstream products. Regardless of what brand you buy, you'll ultimately benefit from the competition this product engenders. So relax with the one star reviews and step back and appreciate the photographic step forward this product represents. Peace. Greg

    A remote shutter control interface is a pretty important feature. Ask about this feature when buying a camera like this one or any camera you intend to use for creative photography. You cannot find this information in the specs on Nex cameras. I have always bought and owned Sony cameras with varying degrees of satisfaction, however I bought a Nex 3 and then (within 60 days of purchase) learned sometimes it is very important to use a remote shutter release. However the my camera did not have that interface. Very frustrating. A point and shoot you might not care, but cameras like DSLRs and Nex's you will care very much.

    Cheap product that cost a lot

    By Lukes

    from phoenix, az

    Comments about Sony NEX-7 Black Digital SLR Camera With 18-55mm Lens:

    I was excited when I bought it and loved the compact size and the three dial control and didn't mind paying the price. If I had rated this 6 months ago I would have given this 4 star like others. However i quickly learned a lot about this camra that i wish wasn't the case. Product is built cheap. The HDMI connector came out after first use and stopped working. I researched online and found a lot of simialr compaints on this model. Sony is not taking any responibility for the poor design. They are not even covering it under manufacture warranty. It is costing us $185 + shipping. Lenses are limted and expensive. Don't expect picture quality of a DSLR. You can pay less for a DSLR and get better picture quality. Pictures taken Indoor and in Low light are especially poor. I had to use really high ISO rating to get right exposure, which inturn made pictures relly grainy.

    Review/ what needs to be updated

    By fixDINODELETEplox123

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Sony NEX-7 Black Digital SLR Camera With 18-55mm Lens:

    I've owned this camera for about a year now, and I can happily say that it was totally worth the investment! The auto focusing with this camera is pretty gnar. The image quality is superb (I've made 40x32 prints) and wouldn't feel uncomfortable printing even bigger. Even though this camera is the epitome of awesomeness, I think there are some small things that need to be addressed if not in a firmware update, hopefully in the making of the new Pro nex. So here are my list of CONS: -The biggest CON about this camera for me is the delete takes WAY too long. PLEASE fix this with either a firmware update, or when you release the new (nex-8, 7n what ever your going to call it) -this camera should have a standard hot shoe -shooting at night with this camera, although I like shooting with the evf....I find it to be way more difficult then shooting with a regular dslr. So maybe there's a way you could implement a new feature exclusively for future nex 7 (nex-8) that can make night shooting more pleasurable. -the future nex 7 (nex 8) body needs a different finish....Something that doesn't attract so much dust. That's my small list of little peeves that I hope will get addressed in the making of the new nex 7. Really though, if you can fix the dino delete, that would be amazing! haha

    Remote shutter control interface

    Comments about Sony NEX-7 Black Digital SLR Camera With 18-55mm Lens:

    A remote shutter control interface is a pretty important feature. Ask about this feature when buying a camera like this one or any camera you intend to use for creative photography. You cannot find this information in the specs on Nex cameras. I have always bought and owned Sony cameras with varying degrees of satisfaction, however I bought a Nex 3 and then (within 60 days of purchase) learned sometimes it is very important to use a remote shutter release. However the my camera did not have that interface. Very frustrating. A point and shoot you might not care, but cameras like DSLRs and Nex's you will care very much.

    Love at first shutter click

    Comments about Sony NEX-7 Black Digital SLR Camera With 18-55mm Lens:

    I cannot say enough about this camera. The image quality is comparable to the world's best full size SLR's (including Sony's own), but it cost less than half the price of its full-size brethren. The NEX-7's nimble size, low weight, and amazing image quality has convinced me to shun full-sized cameras forever! With the new power zoom 18mm-200mm lens, professional quality video is also easy. In fact, amateurs may never need to change lenses with the new power zoom lens, Can't say enough good things about this camera. I have never been more satisfied with a camera purchase!

    excellent

    Comments about Sony NEX-7 Black Digital SLR Camera With 18-55mm Lens:

    if you are like me. ready to move up a notch, but don't have any lenses or gear beyond a basic digital camera (a Canon G12) - and if you are not a pro, this camera and its peers will bring you far. its basic lens is useful for most general users. the criticisms i have seen seem to come from the Pros - guys who have a zeiss lens that uses a different mount. or folks who will never need a video camera built in. so.... if you are a pro, you may not need this. if not, it really does the job. small enough to fit in a coat pocket, but really ready for your best work. it will bring up your game all the way.

    Not bad, but...

    By Manosso

    from Brazil, but traveling overseas A LOT!

    Comments about Sony NEX-7 Black Digital SLR Camera With 18-55mm Lens:

    I was looking for something better than a snapshot, but smaller than a DSRL to take on vacations. The NEX series seemed like a great option, BUT.... 1) Image quality on low-light situations could REALLY use an upgrade. High ISO images get very grainy, and any kind of movement kills the pic. So no natural pictures can be takes in the evening - you need to setup everyting first and ask everyone to stand still. 2) The flash has very few settings - it's either really bright, or really bright! So you need to step far away from the image if you just want a little bright. But then the zoom is not always enough. It does not seem Sony thought of the flash together with the low light situations. 3) All settings change have to be done by menu. And even if it does take just a few clicks and you're done... there goes the picture oportunity :o( 4) The video button ALWAYS gets in the way - and in the few situations where you actually want to use it, there's that clicking sound from something loose inside the camera. 4) Since we travel alone, we take a lot of "arm's lenght" self-pics. The 180degrees tilt LCD from the 5R would be perfect, but it's not there on the 5N, sadly. 5) The image layering does not make for a sharper image, but a blury one. 6) The HDR needs a REALLY GOOD upgrade. Having said all that, I really have always loved Sony cameras. I have a Canon and a Samsung as well, but they just don't compare (I gave them both to my nephews to play with), and I still use my Sony DSC-W300 with the sports pack when scubadiving (any chance of a scuba pack for the Nex series?). I'm considering the Nex-7 now as an upgrade from the 5N (specially for the control options), but would love to see the 5R pack included in it before making the purchase - especially the 180degrees tiltable LCD and self portrait framing. And of course, since I've already bought extra SD cards, bateries and remonte control for the 5N, it would be great to be able to use them with the new Nex-7. Any replies from Sony would be greatly appreciated! :o)

    Worth The Money

    By Arth

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Sony NEX-7 Black Digital SLR Camera With 18-55mm Lens:

    This is a great device. Takes brilliant pictures. This is my 4th Sony camera, before I use to own Cyber shot. This is my first Sony @ NEX series, I have to say this is a good freaking device. Those easy controls comes handy while taking pictures, you dont have to go in the menu to change them, they are right at your finger tip. Dont have to worry about focusing, just keep taking pictures it will focus really good. Also take good pictures in low light.I am adding example for low light pictures Really dont know what else to write, just got this camera like 2 days ago, still exploring this device :D looking forward what else sony will do with NEX series.

    My new Sony Nex-7

    By Cdub

    from Portland, Or

    Pros

    • Speed, size, technology, EVF, controls, on and on

    Cons

    • Not enough quality, affordable lenses

    Best Uses

      Comments about Sony NEX-7 Black Digital SLR Camera With 18-55mm Lens:

      This camera is fantastic. Images are amazing. Control, handling, fantastic. I love not having to carry around all the bulk of a DSLR. So much technology in this too. In camera panorama stitching, HDR, and the list goes on. Extremely well built also. Feels like a brick. I do wish it was built in Japan rather than Thailand but, nevertheless, very high quality. I just wish there were more high quality affordable lenses to really take advantage of the camera body. There are some excellent Carl Zeiss lenses but they are 'spensive! Hopefully Sony will remedy this soon as I think they are on a roll in Cameras with this Nex lineup.
