The Sony A7: Initial Impressions on a Game-Changing Camera

A couple years ago Sony released a camera that turned heads and challenged the current cameras on the market. That camera was the Sony NEX, a mirrorless point-and-shoot-sized camera with a large APS-C sized sensor.

Fast forward to today and the tirelessly innovative people at Sony just recently released the A7 and A7R (basically the latest version of the NEX camera, but no longer called the NEX).

These are groundbreaking cameras that you’ll certainly be hearing more about (if you haven’t already read about them on every other photography blog!).

We recently picked up the A7, and have been putting it through its paces. We were curious to see if this was the camera we’ve been waiting for. This post will be the beginning of an informal multi-part review.Continue Reading →
