SONY NEX-3 [Review]

Digital Photography School
11 May 2010
  • Excerpt: A few days ago I could tell nobody about this newbie. I was under an NDA (Non Disclosure Agreement) from Sony. The Sony NEX-3 was a hot camera! So Sony gave me a review unit of the Sony NEX-3 three days, explaining that they were so fearful of leaks that a Sony person would collect it from me when...

  • Conclusion: The Sony Nex-3 is not a cheap option, but it is a quality option. You can pick up the majority of features this camera has with an entry level Digital SLR and pay less if you prefer to. The main attractions are its picture quality and a portability that a Digital SLR simply cannot match.
  • Pros: Small size - clarity of pictures - build quality
  • Cons: Fiddly flash unit - limited range of compatible lenses with E mount - can overexpose photos

Sony Alpha NEX-3 review

expertreviews.co.uk
11 November 2010
  • Excerpt: Sony’s Alpha NEX series of cameras are two of the smallest system cameras available today. We looked at the Alpha NEX-5 a couple of months back and while it was undoubtedly a beautiful camera with DSLR-like image quality, some of the choices Sony had made meant the camera was often frustrating to...

Sony Alpha NEX-3

Pocket Lint
24 August 2010
  • Conclusion: For all the great advantages that the NEX-3 offers, there is always something that detracts. Great results from advanced shooting are obstructed by the controls. For all the work to shrink the camera in all directions, the lens still governs the pocketability of the NEX-3.
  • Pros: Vari-angle display, compact, well-built lenses, on-screen graphics can guide novices, excellent ISO noise handling
  • Cons: Controls are too obscured, screen reflections a problem in bright conditions, for best performance you have to dive into the settings and take control
