Pocket-Lint: Compact system cameras (CSC) have developed over the years and are now as much a part of the photographic tapestry as their DSLR cousins. It was only a matter of time before a high-end model would hit the shelves, and it’s Sony’s NEX-7 that takes that title.
Breaking the mould of the lower-spec NEX-series models, the NEX-7 has a built-in OLED electronic viewfinder and an APS-C sized sensor with a mahoosive 24.3-megapixel resolution. It’s also laden with more controls and dials than you could shake a stick at. But do all these components marry together to make the NEX-7 a winner, and will there be demand for a high-spec CSC that costs upward of a grand?
