Roullard and Dr. Brian Matsumoto. New users are shown how to master this complex and powerful camera, with everything covered from the basic features of the NEX-7 to numerous advanced photographic applications.

Finally, the third section covers how to take full manual control of the camera, and how to break some “rules” and capture images that are a unique reflection of creativity.
