The best camera is the one you don’t feel


And what is that supposed to mean ? Just that when a camera really suits you and your shooting needs, after a while it becomes invisible. So familiar and fuild its operation is seamless. Photographers talk about “an extension of their eye/mind”. And that’s exactly what the NEX7 does for me. I know it inside out, to the point that I naturally reach for it without thinking, and just shoot things as I see them.

MarlaMar13-20There is no grand scheme or ambitious design behind those pictures. Just a really faithful representation of life in our home. My daughter, the way she grows (read : “way too fast”), her puppy, and occasional glance of my husband when he doesn’t bitch about being in the frame…

MarlaMar13-26Being able to disappear is no little feat. To get such a shot you need a little help from your gear. A flip screen, for starters, a solid performing lens, pretty cracking awesome high ISO performance and good detail, color rendition and overall resolution.

MarlaMar13-18Not a great shot per se. Just a tiny instant of backlit childhood

MarlaMar13-16PMAahhh… Spring. Or at least a hint of it

MarlaMar13-30That looks like pretty intense concentration to me

MarlaMar13-21The NEX 7 handles flashless high ISO brilliantly. The trickiest part is getting white balance right in mixed light sources. Nearly damn impossible (and yes, even in RAW)

MarlaMar13-32The size ratio is getting alarming, lol


MarlaMar13-34Thanks Heaven for the my NEX. Now Sony has got me all curious and anxious for the coming 7n… Can’t wait
