Sony Alpha a7

The Sony Alpha a7 Mirrorless Digital Camera is one of the most advanced mirrorless camera that Sony has ever produced. The a7 is the world’s smallest and lightest full-frame mirrorless camera and comes in two varieties: the a7 (with a 24.3 MP sensor) and the a7R (with a 36.4 million pixel sensor and no optical low-pass filter).

The Sony a7 (also named ILCE-7 in Europe) is the world’s first 35 mm full-frame compact system camera and incorporates a full-frame Exmor CMOS sensor into an E-mount magnesium-alloy body. The 24.3 MP full frame 35.8 x 23.9 sensor captures low-noise, high-resolution images with rich tonal gradation. The new BIONZ X image processor is also present on this camera, and offers the reproducing of textures and details in real time via extra high-speed processing capabilities. The front-end LSI (large scale integration) accelerates the earliest processing stages and enables more natural details and more realistic images.

The Sony a7 comes with an enhanced Hybrid Autofocus system that combines an 117-point phase-detection AF system with a 25-point contrast-detection system. The a7 can record Full HD 1080 video with 24p/60i/60p frame rates in AVCHD or MP4 codecs.

The Sony a7 also features a 3.0″ tiltable XtraFine LCD with 1.23 M-dot resolution and a high-contrast 2.4 M OLED electronic viewfinder that provides 100% coverage and that has the same 3-lens optical system used at Sony a99 DSLR.

Sony Alpha a7 reviews:

The a7 uses a hybrid AF system that allows the camera to ascertain not only the direction to move the lens to achieve focus, but also how far. More about these things you can read on website, that concludes:

The Alpha 7 is a nice step-up for current NEX owners, and will certainly tempt those who want something smaller than conventional full-frame cameras.

Another Sony Alpha a7 review comes from The Verge.

Also, you can find a lot of technical details about Sony a7 and tests results on Camera Labs website, that concludes:

The Sony Alpha A7 is a remarkable camera that delivers the full-frame DSLR quality of the Canon EOS 6D or Nikon D610, but from a body that’s considerably smaller and lighter, packed with more gadgetry and cheaper too, especially if bought with a kit zoom.

The Sony a7 produces images of outstanding quality with a very usable ISO range of 50-25600. ISO 50-1600 is noise-free, ISO 3200 and 6400 produce more than acceptable results, and ISO 12800 or 25600 are OK for emergency use. More about that you can read on Sony A7 review from Photography Blog, that concludes:

This camera really does deliver DSLR-like performance and image quality in a pocketable format, music to the ears of most enthusiasts, while the hybrid AF system, although not able to rival the best DSLRs and CSCs, is at least marginally faster than the more sluggish A7R.

Sony A3000 reviews:

The Sony A3000 produces photos of excellent quality with noise absent from ISO 100-3200. Colours are vibrant and the Dynamic Range Optimizer and High Dynamic Range modes work really well. More detail you can find on Photpgraphy Blog, that concludes:

While the excellent image quality and keen price are definite plus points, the Sony A3000 lags behind when it comes to handling and performance, especially when compared against the DSLR rivals that it’s trying to emulate. It’s not especially speedy to start-up, and shot-to-shot times and auto-focusing speed, while respectable enough, aren’t anything to write home about, and neither is the lackluster continuous shooting speed.

Another Sony A3000 review comes from Digital Photography School. There you can see a lot of sample images with different settings.

On Sony A3000 review from website, you can find details about the design, controls and features of the A3000.

The website reviews the Sony A3000 and concludes:

As an entry-level model the A3000 is bettered by all of its rivals in terms of features, performance and value for money, including cameras from Sony itself.  It must be noted that it’s a simple easy-to-use camera that produces good results, and as long as you’re not in a hurry it works very well.

Sony A58 reviews:

The Sony A58 produces images of excellent quality. ISO 100 – 800 is noise free while ISO 1600 – 6400 produces more than acceptable results. The effective Dynamic Range Optimizer function extracts more detail from the shadow areas in an image, without introducing noise or other artifacts. More about Sony A58 performance you can read on website, that concludes:

The new Sony A58 offers most of its predecessor’s design, features and performance at an aggressive price-point, which can only be good news for us consumers. Look under the hood and you do find a few corners have been cut to keep the cost down, but all things considered, this is simply a very good interchangeable lens camera at a very attractive price.

Another Sony A58 review comes from website, that says:

We’ve been impressed by the detail, colour rendition and generally good exposures in the images the Sony a58 shoots. Watch out when you’re shooting in lower light, though, and remember to dial in some exposure compensation in certain situations and you’ll soon find you’re producing very pleasing images. As with any camera, spending some time getting to know its particular quirks will be rewarded well.

The Sony A58 has a large grip, complete with logical depression where you can rest your middle and ring fingers as well as a good selection of controls located around the body. More such details you can find on website.

The website also reviews the Sony A58 and concludes:

The Sony A58’s AF performance is good for a camera in this class, with speedy AF acquirement most of the time, only hunting in low-contrast situations.

Sony HDR-PJ650 reviews:

The website reviews the Sony HDR-PJ650 camcorder and writes:

The most important addition is the new multi-control wheel on the front side, below and to the left of the lens. This feature was a good idea when it debuted at the high end of Sony’s camcorder lineup, though it’s the first time we’ve seen it on a $1,000-ish model.


Another Sony HDR-PJ650 review comes from website, that concludes:

The Sony HDR-PJ650VE is a very good camcorder that has a nice range of functions and features (GPS, 12x zoom, 5.1 sound, mic. and headphones sockets, built-in projector, SD recording more, etc.). The optical stabilisation system is particularly effective here, but picture quality isn’t quite on par with its main rival, the Panasonic X920, which also boasts Wi-Fi connectivity.

There’s a lot to like in the Sony SLT-A99. It’s a camera that combines very good image quality with a high degree of camera customization and an ergonomically well-designed control layout. It incorporates all of Sony’s recent technology advances in both stills and video performance. A900 users who’ve patiently waited for an upgrade and are amenable to using an EVF will be hard-pressed to find much fault with the A99, as it represents a significant step forward in just about every respect other than output resolution.


Another Sony Alpha a99 review comes from, that notes:

There’s no question that video is becoming an increasingly important feature for DSLR-style cameras. Sony’s DSLT design makes the new Alpha cameras more suited to video shooting than more traditional cameras with a reflex mirror.

The has tested the Sony a99 and writes:

The Sony A99 remains one of the best new cameras we’ve seen this year. It shows that the new perspectives being brought to photography by the likes of traditional electronics companies are having a positive effect on the progression of photographic technology.

The most substantial physical difference between the Nex-6 and its version 5 predecessors is the former’s inclusion of a viewfinder (a 2.3 million dot OLED panel with 1.09x magnification). You can find more about this on Sony Nex-6 review from website.

The images from Sony Nex-6 impress. They are well exposed, vibrant and full of detail. Noise is well controlled up to around ISO 3200. Colours are vibrant straight from the camera and the automatic white balance system copes well with most conditions. Other details about the performance of Sony Nex-6 you can read on NEX-6 review from website. The author of this review concludes:

 Sony has produced a very likable, capable camera that is complemented well by the new powerzoom lens. Its controls can be customised to suit the photographer, it has helpful technology borrowed from a smartphone and it delivers images of impressively high quality.


The comments of some professional photographers about Sony Nex-6 can be found on website.
