24.3-Megapixel SensorWith a 24.3-megapixel Sony Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor and advanced Bionz processing engine, the NEX-7 can shoot at ISOs from 100 to 16,000. The built-in, eye-level, 2,359,000-dot XGA OLED Tru-Finder is an outstanding EVF, and it's complemented by a 3.0-inch, 921,000-dot tilting LCD monitor.
Full HD Video CaptureThe NEX-7 also provides video with the new AVCHD Progressive v2.0 format, delivering 1920x1080 full HD video at 60p and 60i, and 1080/24p for a cinematic look. There's also 1440x1080 and 640x480 MP4 video at 30p, when smaller files are desired. The built-in stereo microphone provides Dolby Digital stereo sound.
Fast Shooting SpeedThe camera can shoot 24.3-megapixel images at 10 fps (with focus and exposure locked at the first exposure). An electronic first shutter curtain and the absence of an SLR mirror make for quick shutter response. The NEX-7 can correct chromatic aberration, vignetting and distortion in-camera, and there's an ultrasonic sensor-dust removal system.
Go Manual Or Full AutoIf you want to focus manually, the NEX-7 allows for "peaking," which outlines in-focus edges in your choice of white, red or yellow, making it easy to see just where focus is in the image.
If you want to go automatic, the iAUTO mode uses Scene Recognition, Face Detection and Optical SteadyShot image stabilization to automatically provide the best shot.
