Make Sony NEX-7 videos more natural

Learn how to adjust Sony's NEX-7 camera to create smoother, more natural looking video.

I'm a big fan of Sony's Alpha NEX-7 and NEX-5n mirrorless cameras. They're practically more lens than camera, but both deliver exceptional image quality and advanced features for their small size.

For the past month I've been casually shooting photos and videos on the NEX-7 and scouring the Web for advice on getting the most from this camera. One tip that really changed the way I shoot video is Camera Dojo's advice on matching shutter speed with your camera's frame rate.

In the above video , I'll walk you through the steps to optimize the NEX-7's frame rate and achieve a smoother, more film-like video quality. The same technique can also be applied to the NEX-5n or any dSLR camera capable of shooting video.
