This is my girl with the much coveted Grand-dad’s Teddy bear
I decided to edit some NEX7 shots today, and it was like slipping in old, comfortable clothes. Those files are pleasurably malleable and super easy to deal with
I know this camera in and out, and processing its files is really second nature to me by now.
I love the DR and tonal gradation, I love the skintones and overall sharpness
Now look at this : A7…
… NEX7. Get me drift ??
I know the WB is different, but it goes beyond that. A7 skintone is pasty and unreal, N7’s is golden and full of subtle tonal nuances.
Noise output is also very different. The A7 seem way cleaner at first look, but if you go deeper into files, the N7 holds its own very well, and retains more detail
I’m really torturing both cameras though !! Horrible light levels, backlighting and shooting them at their usable ISO limits most of the time…
NEX 7 shot, sharp, rich, malleable file
Gosh, do I ever need another camera ??
I’m expecting delivery of a Voïgtlander Nokton 40 1.4 Classic tomorrow. I’ll be testing it on both the A7 and NEX7, but unless I have a true Alpha revelation with it, the A7 will go back shortly after. I’ll stick with the N7 for the time being, until maybe Sony releases a new NEX like flagship body with RF form factor and flat top plate.
I hope you enjoyed the pics and the post, stay tuned for the Nokton review !
