Sony NEX-7 prototype video test at the Denver Zoo

Sony NEX-7 prototype video test at the Denver Zoo from Justin Nystrom on Vimeo.

Not great art, but more of an equipment test. At a very cool event sponsored by Mike’s camera in Denver on October 15, I had about a half an hour to test out a prototype model Sony NEX-7. My impression is that this is an interesting little camera. All of this was shot in 24p mode because the event only had class 6 cards for sale. As you can see, the autofocus is a little slow. I used the Zeiss 24/1.8 lens on this, no color correction, and this is exported out of FCP7. Sorry now that I didn’t wait to test the A77, but I cannot stand zoos. The color banding that appears in this showed up in one other clip as I panned across the sandy-brown cement and rocks. Ideas?

Sony NEX-7 rumors, super powered pseudo rangefinder w/ righteous 24P video mode

Sonyalpharumors.com have been spilling some very interesting rumor details the last couple days. Of all the rumors that have been coming out, the Sony NEX7 rumors are by far the most interesting. What it sounds like is Sony is going to make a pseudo rangefinder similar to the Fuji X100 but with a way jazzed up 1080 24P AVCHD 2.0 (28Mbit/s) video mode. This is great news for all of us out there with shit hot rangefinder lenses looking for a compact body with a large(APS-C) sized sensor. Sonyalpharumors.com reports here that hands on testing reveals that Sony will be trying to market this is a modern day rangefinder with a special ad/rangefinder documentary web series to follow. Very interesting indeed, can’t wait to see what the low light capabilities of this camera are!

Here are the leaked specs supposed to officially announced on the 24th of this month.
