The first full days major test for my Nex7 at the RHS Flower Shaw at Tatton Park. Nearly 500 images and over 20 video clips in the day and I needed my third battery towards the end of the afternoon. I also had my first experience of the Nex7 overheating! It was after a particularly long video clip of the Baraka group. My Plan B - Nikon p500 had to step in for a couple of minutes or so. As I expected the 18-200 is proving to be a very versatile lens with the quality of the 100% crop being very good. I varied the iso to see how the camera fared in different conditions. Very little post processing in PS - a little sharpening.
