White Balance and Colour
The auto white balance remains reliable in the NEX-7 for most scenes, giving rich colours in bright daylight and natural skin tones under the cooler evening light, and even remaining neutral under fluorescent lighting.
There is a full range of white balance presets, however, including four fluorescent modes, custom reading and colour temperature control.
JPEG images have more contrast than the raw files by default, but they are by no means over the top and they can be used straight from the camera.
A full range of creative styles is available in the colour menu for different effects, from a brash-looking vivid through to black & white.
