Yes, you can remove it. I didn't want to cobble something big enough to work together - first, it would not likely stay on through my mountain biking adventures, etc., second, it would undoubtedly look like the cat's ass. Which I do not want to stick my eye against. .
Thanks for the laugh.
keep your shutter speed up, as you don't have the extra mass that a DSLR has.
Interesting that you should write that, because both with my NEX 5 and with my 5N, with the camera restign on my left hand at waist level with the LDC turned up, I can get downn to ridiculous shutter speeds before losing sharpness. Now, if you handhold at eye level, which I never do, it could be another story. Just sayin'.. Oh, and one example to show it. Lens is Contax G 90, and the shot is a smallish crop.
Agreed. That's also another reason I like the tilt EVF, because I can lock my arms at my side, and it's very stable.
That leads me to another concern about the Nex-7. With Contax G lenses, I like to shoot with my left hand palm down (rather than the usual palm up,) with my middle finger and thumb on the focus ring, because it is easier to grab the focus ring that is so close to the camera body (and my left index finger is there to easily reach the EVF on/off button.) The 5N's tilt EVF gets my face up and out of the way, but, with the Nex-7, I'm afraid my left hand will be pushing right up against my nose/face when my eye is at the EVF.
Yes, up to my eye like my 1DIII, some days my hands shake like crazy, others I have no problem, it may be caused by not eating much before going out, but it's still an issue some days.
I also have used waist level method too, but the POV is too low at times(candid's) I've had some success using my shoulder bag which is fairly high, to support my arm and be able to shoot portrait style with the camera against my chest, and it doesn't look like I'm actively taking pictures.
