Photos came out "soft", fumbly menus, and poor autofocus.

FreshmanGREEN, Amazon
9 January 2012
  • Summary: I have a Canon Rebel XSi that I have had for 3 years that I have taken many great pictures with while traveling. But like many people who I think end up trying the Nex series, the Rebel along with it's lenses are very bulky and cumbersome to carry while traveling.

  • Summary: I have had my NEX 3 camera for just under a year and am really disappointed with the battery life and Sony service. The battery dies in its sleep in a couple of weeks. I have tried to use the camera to snap a photo only to be disappointed as the camera is dead...

Not even close to DSLR

Yogi, Amazon
26 August 2011
  • Summary: After reading all the hype about DSLR size sensor, my buddy bought a NEX-3. What a disappointment!!! If you are coming from a P&S cameras, yes, it is a lot better. I think most reviews here are from those who compare NEX with P&S and are amazed. However, DSLR users will have different opinion.

Beware firmware updates on Mac OS X

Gary, Amazon
24 May 2011
  • Summary: A warning: Due to battery drainage issues I decided to upgrade my NEX-3's firmware. The Mac version of the firmware updater installs a kernel extension (a driver). It caused a kernel panic during the update, crashing the Mac. My camera is now a brick.

Poor metering in bright conditions

R. Kerry "Bob K in AZ", Amazon
17 February 2011
  • Summary: This is a terrific camera for low light situations. Magic, really. I like most everything about it. But I bought it to use as my hiking camera and I was very disappointed. The metering is way off in bright situations. I tried the Auto setting and the Program setting with -.7 exposure compensation.

Sorely Lacking Lenses

BILL Bellows "BillB", Amazon
31 January 2011
  • Summary: This could have been a very positive review, except for one very significant issue. I bought the NEX-3 after months of reading and researching. I chose it over Panasonic based on its sensor size, unique features, form factor, weight and several very favorable reviews in professional newsletters.

Beautiful Camera But Bad Lense...

Floyd Goodrich "Jim G.", Amazon
7 August 2010
  • Summary: I suspect I received a used and previously owned camera as when I turned it on for the first time, the date and time were set, although the time was off by quite a few hours, and the location showed Europe, and the battery was nearly fully charged.

  • Excerpt: Не в коем случае...Цена не оправдана...
  • Pros: неплохое качество видеосъемки
  • Cons: полное отсутствие Зума. Вообще его нет и это в 21 веке. Барахло.Надо покупать дополнительный объектив по цене самого фотика.

no es para tanto

karoma, amazon.es
28 January 2011
  • Summary: Es cierto tiene un sensor muy grande para su gama y fácil de usar pero he hecho fotos y no es que sea mal fotógrafo pero tengo una compacta y hace mejores fotos. Personalmente al hacer alguna foto se ven aberraciones como si las figuras saliesen deformadas y también con poca luz no hace nada del...

Lo peor su pantalla, el sensor es bueno.

carlos+, amazon.es
26 January 2011
  • Summary: El sensor tiene una calidad aceptable, el objetivo cumple bien. Lo peor es su pantalla que tiene poca definición y no tiene 3 pulgadas útiles, dado que parte de la pantalla tiene una banda negra donde se superpone información sobre los controles.
