The camera is compact. The sensor is anything but. Bigger sensors equal better pictures. That's why the NEX-7 boasts a huge, 24.3MP APS-C sensor—the same size sensor used in most DSLRs-for ultra-high resolution and incredibly- detailed photos that make for gorgeous enlargements. With a sensor 13 times larger than the average compact camera, the NEX-7 offers the image quality and performance of a DSLR in about half the size and weight.
The APS-C size sensor is more than 13x larger than 1/2.4-size sensors, 3x larger than Nikon CX format and 1.6x larger than Micro Four Thirds sensors

Whether shooting a sequence of your preschooler's somersault, or the game-changing instant when ball meets bat, be sure you capture the most critical moments with up to 10 fps continuous shooting at full 24.3MP resolution (exposure and focus fixed at the first frame). It's ideal for high-speed sports photography or capturing the fast, fleeting moments other cameras miss. Standard continuous shooting is also available at up to 2.5 fps.
