PPE 2013: Hands-on with Sony's new A7 / A7R and RX-series cameras
PPE 2013: Hands-on with Sony's A7 / A7R and RX-series cameras
Of all the major camera manufacturers, Sony has the most new product on show at the Photo Plus Expo in New York, after the flurry of new Alpha and RX-series cameras released in the past couple of months. We had a fascinating (and fun) interview this morning with Kimio Maki, the brains behind the A7 and RX lines which we'll be writing up soon, but in the meantime, click through this slideshow for a quick tour of the new cameras.
This is the 24MP Sony A7, one of two full-frame mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras that Sony launched recently, which are compatible with the E-mount (note that Sony has entirely dropped the 'NEX' designation). The A7 is a rather compelling mixture of design and ergonomic cues drawn from the RX1 and from Sony's longer-established NEX and SLT lineups.
