I wanted to compare up close the new Sony A7 with my Sony Nex-6 and in this article I will do just that with photos and a highly detailed HD video. In the video I go hands-on with both the full frame Sony A7 and Aps-c Nex-6, covering all the angles and pointing out a lot of the differences between the two cameras. Besides the obvious sensor size differences, we have buttons and controls, drastic build quality and design differences, size and weight, plus completely different menu systems. The video is pretty detailed so be sure and check it out 😉
The Full Frame A7 is significantly larger than the APS-C Nex-6 and weighs a bit more as well. Is it worth the size and weight? I say yes, but you can judges for yourself as you look at all the test results, sample photos, etc..
Sony A7 VS Nex-6 – Size
Courtesy of Camerasize.com, were able to compare cameras very easily with scale and size reference measurements everywhere. Pretty awesome to say the least and I highly recommend checking it out if you want to compare camera sizes in particular.
Click the Photos for the full size, real scale versions. ~800 – 1000px.
Select the hd quality once the video starts playing then go full screen for the best viewing experience 😉
That is about it for now everybody, but I’m working on a new “LAB” scene downstairs to test and compare the Sony A7 vs Sony Nex-6 head to head. Hopefully using the Lab scene will help illustrate the advantage of the full frame over the crop factor pretty clearly. The High ISO comparison should be night and day and the very least 😉
In any event, I need to eat breakfast and get to work on the Lab scene. Layla is going to help me, so it’s possible some Lego might get involved in the process and/or incorporated into the lab scene. Studio photography and Lighting with the A7 is also coming!
