Hi, my name's Rich Harrington. >> And I'm Robby Carmen. >> Rob, what we have here are two cameras from Sony, the A7 and the A7R. Sony is, of course, well known for their video cameras. These are still cameras. Where do these fall? >> Well, Sony also makes still cameras of course, their NEX lines very popular for the smaller size mirrorless cameras. They've made DSLRs for a number of years. These, in my mind, are kind of a new generation or a new breed of cameras because what makes these really fun and really interesting is that they're mirrorless full frame interchangeable lens cameras.
>> And this is kind of a newer technology. We had mirrorless before, but up until this point, more or less, the mirrorless cameras have been things like micro four third sensors or at least crop sensors. >> Yeah, a PAC. I mean, now there are couple companies that were making full frame mirrorless cameras, but they were a lot of bucks. Seven, eight, $9,000. Yeah, and I think this is a whole new range. I mean, you get the benefits of a nice small form factor, a full frame sensor, and interchangeable lenses. And you only have to take one look on the Internet to know that these cameras are really hot right now.
And people are talking about them all the time, and today, we are going to talk about how they work. >> Yeah, we are going to dig deep into these, and I know that it's a good camera, when Robby opens up his own wallet and buys one. Rob is the one who brought this camera to me and told me all about it. So, I know that if Robby Carmen owns this camera. >> Hey. >> You might want to take a good look at it. So, we'll dig into the new features next.
