Sony NEX-7 Review

If your expecting a detailed technical review, go ahead and stop now.  I’m not going to tell you about all the features and functions that the Sony NEX-7 has and can do. I’m going to  discuss my experience and impressions of the NEX-7 these past 5 weeks.

Let me start by giving some background on my decision to purchase the Sony  NEX-7.  I currently own a Nikon D90 with a lot of Nikon Glass. I thoroughly have enjoyed taking photos with the Nikon D90 for about 27 months. I’ve learned a lot about how to use it, take some wonderful photo’s on vacations, of my children, friends, families, couples, landscapes. In all I’ve taken about 14,000 photo’s with the D90. I want to get the new Nikon D800, saving my pennies for my real “Professional Quality” Camera.  It is a little pricy at $3000, but I still plan on getting one after the summer and most importantly after paying for Summer vacation to Mexico this year.

New Manfrotto Tripod and Manfrotto Ball Head

The UPS guy deliver my new Manfrotto Tripod (190XPROB) and Manfrotto Ball Head (496RC2) from B&N Photography today. I took it outside a few minutes ago to try it out. All I can say is wow!!!! It is so much better than the $49.99 SunPak 6200DX Tripod I bought at Best Buy April 2010. Don’t get me wrong the tripod I bought at Best Buy tripod was nice when I got it. The only issue I had with it was how long it took to adjust it. There were so many lever and arms and knobs to spin it, move it up or down or adjust the angle. Also the camera even after locked in, there was some minimal movement. I just never realized how much I didn’t like the Tripod until I started having to do a lot of adjustments when I began doing Portrait photography.
