A few portraits of Alex, shot with the mighty impressive Sony Nex 7 (available for preorder for march 1st!). Ah, you noticed the grip? Something I have been (and still am) missing on this camera from day one, especially when the shooting gets serious. More after the break
Ownuser, as seen on Sonyalpharumors, is about to release one but its bulky and ugly. I decided to play around a little and came up with this simple extension. I have no need for a vertical shutter and it shouldn’t add significant weight, though I wouldn’t mind a large built in (even non removable?) propriety battery. I am just looking for a full size grip here. The Nex 7 would handle much better, especially with the LA-EA2 and Alpha mount lenses attached. Let’s hope someone will take this idea and make one, maybe even Sony! My favorite lenses for this shoot: Tamron 90mm 2.8 macro and the original Minolta 28mm 2.8 (search on Ebay).
Shutter speed 1/640 F 6.3 ISO 100 LA-EA2 Minolta 28mm 2.8
