Sony NEX-7 Prototype Shown In Leaked Picture

Spotify partners with Klout to get the word out

Sony’s NEX series of mirrorless cameras has gotten fairly positive reviews, and it appears Sony thinks there’s room at the top for a hotter model. The NEX-7 (big brother to the NEX-3 and NEX-5) appears to have leaked in this picture, though it’s clearly not final hardware. Observe, for instance, the rather non-traditional “OFF-NO” switch.

It’s not just a pretty picture that leaked, though: some specs are on the table as well. That’s not an optical viewfinder there, which would make this an electronic rangefinder like a Leica or X100; it’s a 3-million dot (slightly more than 720p) OLED electronic viewfinder. Could be hot!

The sensor is supposed to be an APS-C-sized one with 24 megapixels. The cool bit, though, is those dual dials on the top right corner. Shutter and aperture control? I certainly hope so.
