The studio compact?
Shot of beautiful Anastasia in my studio using SONY NEX-7 with 18-55/3.5-5.6 OSS, a milestone camera in term of compactness, resolution and flexibility. The studio flash was triggered with the use of Pocket Wizard Flex TT5 on a hotshoe adapter on the SONY.
Since 2010, photographers around the world have no longer much debate over if digital is better than film – such debate may go on forever but becoming irrelevant. The real question is where will the technology lead to? And how good they can be?
For example SONY NEX-7, which by number has the similar resolution as my studio DLSR workhorses – Canon 1DsIII, 5DIII or D3X – on a sensor less than ½ the size but with newer sensor technology that can produce very close result – close enough that it well suit the regular requirement of magazine print AD.
So will SONY NEX-7 become one of my studio cameras? No, may be not in 1-2 more generations because I prefer larger and heavier camera for studio use but it can certainly serve as a studio compact for point & shoot.
