Sony A7R…Great Camera…Loud Shutter

Dad...that camera is noisy!

Dad…that camera is noisy!

 

So long story short…a Sony A7R with Sony Sonnar T* FE 35mm f/2.8 ZA lens showed up in December. Immediately noticed it had a very loud shutter, and you could feel it vibrate in your hands. Seemed lame for such an expensive camera. I sent it back and bought a Sony A7 24MP body instead. It has a different shutter, quieter and no chance of vibration.

Camera shake from the shutter would probably only happen with longer focal length lenses at certain shutter speeds…but again…I was worried it may bother me in the future so sent it back.

2013 Holiday Shopping Guide – Pocket Cameras – Which Digital Camera Should I Get?

In the PixelReeder 2013 Holiday Shopping Guide – Which Digital Camera Should I Get?  post…I discussed the 3 main categories of consumer digital cameras.

Pocket Cameras I would consider purchasing:

Canon PowerShot S120  Around $400 from B&H in NYC 

I reviewed a previous version (s100) here. Canon seems to upgrade this camera every year. 12 MP CMOS chip, decent 1080 HD video, high iso, RAW file capture, IS, fast lens for low light. VERY COMPACT

 

Cyber-shot Digital Camera RX100  – around $550

Sony Cyber-Shot RX100

20MP, 1″ CMOS sensor, fast Zeiss lens, RAW mode, HD video. This would be preferable to the Canon S120. They also make an improved RX100 II…for a few hundred dollars more. For most folks the original is good enough.

The lens showed up today, but no body. Supply is limited…hopefully it will show in the next few weeks. Check back soon for test report.
