Sony NEX6, NEX7 and A7 Comparison (low-light)

December 07, 2013  •  1 Comment
It's been a very long time since my last post, but I thought I'd ressurect the blog with a post about NEX camera and the new Sony A7. Particularly whether using E-mount lenses on the A7 in low light brings any benefit over using the same lenses on the NEX6. I've been using the Sony NEX system since 2011. It all started when I wanted a compact alte...

We don’t generally get much snow where I live on the South Coast of England, but this year has been quite fun with a few separate days of snow.

I’ve had the 5D Mark III for a week today, and one of it’s obvious great features if the ability to practically shoot in the dark.
