3D Models of Sony NEX-7 and A7R

Sony NEX-7 3D Rendering by Humster 3D



Check out these 3D renderings of the Sony NEX-7 and the Sony A7R. The 3D rendering of the Sony digital cameras are made by Humster 3D. These are only the 3D files not actual models. The files would then be processed by a 3D printer to produce a solid model in many materials and colors. We have not bought any of these files so we can't attest to their quality.

Sony A7r and NEX APS-C Lenses

Carl Zeiss 32mm Touit Lens on Sony A7r


Here are a bevy of autofocus lenses made for the Sony NEX system mounted on the new Sony A7r. The red boxes show a 1:1 or square aspect ratio and a 16:9 aspect ratio. The lenses have rear baffles which were not removed. Most of the prime lenses can provide a square image with a little bit of vignetting. 16:9 images show heavy vignetting, maybe we can extract a 2.35:1 Cinemascope / Panavision image with the A7r's 36 megapixels to play with.

Sony a6000 vs Alpha a65 vs NEX-7 Autofocus Speed

Sony a6000 vs Sony alpha a65 vs NEX-7 Focus Lock


Sony Korea puts the new 11 frame per second Sony a6000 up against the 10 frame per second Alpha a65 and the NEX-7. The a6000 best both cameras because of two new features.

Ultra-fast Response
Capture the perfect moment – the a6000 realizes 11 frames per second continuous shooting with AF (Auto Focus) tracking by making the most of the wide-area 179-point phase-detection AF sensor. Even when dealing with a moving subject the a6000's superb moving-subject tracking performance ensures you get the shot during still or video capture.

The Fastest Focusing Camera in the World
Enhanced Fast Hybrid auto focus combines speedy phase-detection AF with highly accurate contrast-detection AF, which has been accelerated through a new Spatial Object Detection algorithm, to achieve among the fastest autofocusing performance of any full-frame camera in the world6. First, phase-detection AF with 179 densely placed phase-detection AF points swiftly and efficiently moves the lens to bring the subject nearly into focus. Then contrast-detection AF with wide AF coverage fine-tunes the focusing in the blink of an eye.

The new Sony a6000 is a month away from release and is $750 with the lens.

Canon 6D vs NEX-7 with Speedbooster

Canon 6D vs Sony NEX-7 with Metabones Speedbooster


Tarocoo wanted to see what the NEX-7 with the Canon EF to E-mount Speedbooster can do against his full frame Canon 6D. He had access to a multitude of manual focus lenses which can be used on both E-mount and EF mount (EOS). The Speedbooster's final EFOV on the NEX APS-C sensor is about 1.1x the focal lenght - so the EFOV is close to the Canon 6D with the full frame sensor. The lenses used are:

  • Sigma 24mm f/2.8
  • Sigma 28mm f/2.8
  • Olympus 35mm f/2.0
  • Sigma 50mm f/1.4

The images will show the whole scene at wide open to an aperture of f/11. It will be followed by center and corner crops at same aperture range. Here we go...

Zeiss Touit 12mm f/2.8 in Cape May

sony nex-7 touit 12mm carl zeiss

We thoroughly enjoyed the Zeiss Touit 12mm f/2.8 Distagon on a recent trip. We spent a few days in Cape May, NJ with the Touit 12mm glued onto the NEX-7.

We are still learning this ultra wide angle lens, at 18mm efov on the NEX, most everything will be in frame. We are somewhat addicted to the NEX-7's level feature which helps minimize converging vertical lines with such a wide lens. We also depended on the NEX-7's autofocus mode while using focus-recompose to frame. Here are a few shots from the trip. They are all RAW converted shots.
