Hahaha...very creative review
The NEx7 looks badass though :)
I'd really like to know if it experiences the same click sound issue during video capture as the NEX5N does.

Meh. It was interesting enough but hardly a review. More hyping the features to get more people to buy it. But hey, its a camera shop and I already want one so no big deal. :rolleyes:

Well, I don't know about you guys but I'm kinda hooked and wish I wouldn't see that. So many GREAT features, and that besides the viewfinder, hot shoe etc.
Maybe I will put aside a separate account to add on each month and in one year time make myself a real nice present :)

Here's a link for unboxing the NEX 7

OK for a video review. There is only so much that you can squeeze into a short YouTube video review and at least they tried to be a little creative ... although it would have been funnier if homeless guys wearing T-shirts with Nikon and Canon logos kept walking into the video trying to take the NEX-7 from him. ;)

The unboxing video from jebuskrust is interesting. I was expecting a little more innovation in the packaging based on comments from Sony reps (something more like the packaging for a Leica) but the packaging for the NEX-7 only looks "a little" better than standard NEX packaging ... just with black-painted cardboard. To be honest, I don't "really" care about the packaging as long as it protects the camera/lens during shipping ... I was just expecting more of a "WOW" experience when opening the NEX-7 based on the Sony comments.

The thing that strikes me in this video is how compact the camera is in his hands. It's large for a mirrorless, but looks surprisingly unobtrusive.

Not one of their better shows. I'm subscribed to the show in YouTube and generally they are interesting reviews but with the occasional silly show - the nex-7 one being in the silly category. Now, it could have been simply because it was a pre-poduction model and they couldn't give a full review so hopefully once it is on sale, we might get a proper review. But don't hold your breath on that one as the review of the X10 was done in the style of DigitalRevTV

There's a new review of the nex-7 in the new issue of Amateur Photographer. Gets a 90% in their tests.

Amazing how may reviews of the NEX 7 have been appearing considering the production problems. Perhaps Sony are happy to have the camera kept in the public eye in the run up to Christmas - hoping that potential purchases might hold off on going to alternatives?
