Background and Identification ¶
The camera was announced on August 24th, 2011. It is a step up from the first generation of Sony mirrorless cameras (NEX-3 and NEX-5). With the NEX-7, Sony introduced a digital viewfinder, a built-in flash, an external mic jack, and a number of other improvements to software and hardware.
