From the Author:

What an incredible camera the NEX-7 is!  This flagship of the Sony Alpha NEX line shares many features with earlier models, but I decided it was important to write this book exclusively for the NEX-7. Clearly, this camera is an enthusiast model, and deserves a book written for both beginners and more advanced photographers.

But what if you're not an enthusiast -- but hope to become one, or simply want to take better pictures?  In that case, you really need this book to show exactly how to use every feature and option of the NEX-7.  If you're in love with photography, but so far haven't been in love with learning to use cameras, let me help you get the most from your NEX-7.

My Sony NEX-7 Guide to Digital Photography is divided into four parts.   Part I, "Getting Started with your Sony Alpha NEX-7" includes chapters that will help you set up your camera, start shooting great pictures and movies in minutes, and explain each control, button, and dial, and how to use them. I guide you through every menu option and offer advice on what each does -- or does not do -- and when you should, or should not, use a particular setting.  Rather than simply re-hash the Sony manual, I provide a wealth of useful tips. 

Part II, "Beyond the Basics," has chapters that show you how to use the NEX-7's amazing exposure modes, including Sweep Panorama and 3D Sweep Panorama. There's an entire section on using the camera's autofocus to get sharp images every time.

In Part III, "Advanced Tools"  The NEX-7's movie-making capabilities take you to the next level, and I've written a full chapter on the camera's video features, with plenty of shooting tips for those new to movie shooting.  Another chapter shows you how to choose and use lenses, with an analysis and review of the most important lenses available for the NEX-7.  I include a full-page focus chart you can use when fine-tuning autofocus using the AF Micro Adjust feature with the LA-EA2 Mount adapter. There's a chapter on working with available light and flash, too.

Read Part IV, "Enhancing Your Experience," to pick up tips for choosing software for  your NEX-7, and a chapter on troubleshooting and maintaining your camera.  The software advice is strictly an overview; I don't pad this book out with Photoshop how-to lessons that show you how to correct mistakes you made while shooting. This entire book is dedicated to helping you get the shot you want in the camera.
 
Whether you're a dSLR owner who is switching to the Sony Alpha NEX-7, a would-be enthusiast who wants to learn all of the camera's great features, or a beginner who wants to learn the basics of photography while mastering the camera, sit down with me and we'll explore this camera together.  You're in for a great ride!
