This model is not being launched yet, rumored (Read from Gizmodo) that it'll be available end of the year. The NEX-5 will be out in 3rd week of June and is already selling like hot cakes! I like the look of NEX-7 so am possibly going to wait for it! A DSLR camera with so much less weight is certainly a consumer's dream! I've been waiting for this for years!!!

About this digital camera


From EOSHD.com

In February when rumors of the NEX series first trickled in, we also had information about a NEX 7 as well as the 5 and 3 series. The numbering appears to mirror the Alpha range. Can we also expect a 9 series NEX camera?

Today I received more info from the same source as last time, who got the NEX 3 and 5 specs bang on right.

There is no NEX 9 planned but there is a NEX 7.

The NEX 7 addresses the missing enthusiast features from the NEX 5.

  • Full manual control
  • 1080p@60
  • 1080p@24
  • 720p@120fps and 60p
  • Revised sensor design

720p at 120fps will be absolutely must-have. The faster sensor is not a global shutter design like the GH2, but allows 120fps in 720p mode for super slow-mo, mirroring what's possible with current compact CMOS sensors at 640x480. This is a great achievement for an APS-C sized chip. The codec will not be XDCam as rumoured in February, instead sticking to AVCHD at a higher 24mbps bit rate.

Remember this is still a consumer grade camera, so XDCam is 'not a suitable format' according to my source. Oh well.

In body stabilisation returns - the larger body enables this to fit, whilst the main aim for the NEX 5's body was thinness and a consumer orientated sexy design.

Next question - why no simultaneous release with the NEX 3 and 5? Well, two reasons were stated - Firstly, Sony want to equip it with a more capable sensor, which is not yet ready. Secondly, Sony want to get the new Alpha HD range out of the door first - ...
