GREAT CAMERA, NICE QUALITY PICTURES

Amazoniac, Amazon
21 February 2012
  • Summary: This camera is a great performer. Its focusing is fast and accurate its color reproduction is decent. It produces Sharp and detailed photos that are very decent even great sometimes. Awesome for prints smaller than 8x10 (My 8x10's looked quite decent but not up to par with my old nikon d3100, just didnt cut it). The lenses are expensive, just too expensive and theres not many choices.

  • Summary: I really wanted to love this camera, but instead I just like it. It takes really nice pics, but I am really unsatisfied w/ the zoom. I bought another interchangeable lens and was not happy w/ the zoom at all.

16mm kit bad for point-and-shooters

J. Bowman "Bookworm", Amazon
14 March 2011
  • Summary: I bought this camera with both lenses, this review emphasizes the performance of the 16mm kit lens. (See the other kit for the opposite emphasis.) I had no preconceptions and bought it on a whim, amazed by its size. It's easy to hold, but also easy to cover the AF lamp. With the 16mm lens is actually fits in a large pocket. The 16mm lens is simply not acceptable for point-and-shooters, unless you enjoy performing manual correction on every image afterward.

Good image but with faults

Sambucka, Amazon
2 August 2010
  • Summary: The pancake lens it comes with is only suitable for landscape photography. You have to be in someone's face to take a portrait photo, so it's not a versatile lens like 20mm pancake on GF1 or 30mm on NX10. Flash is needed with some photos and it is really a bother to keep taking it on and off with a tiny thumb-screw. Also, there is no dedicated function dial, so you have to keep going back into the menu to change shooting mode and other settings.

Solid performer but short battery life

S. Yang "New Amazonian", Amazon
10 July 2010
  • Summary: I have been playing with the camera since June 25. The camera has excellent low light performance. Very low noise in general. I compared it side by side with my Canon T1i and found that in may cases, Nex-3 produces better quality of pictures. Auto focus in video mode is quick. The video quality in 720p mode is generally very good, but not as good as the Tx7 which is a Sony point and shoot supporting 1080p.

Got To Love a Panorama

Irvine Henderson, Photo answers
14 October 2010
  • Summary: The camera is well-made though I must say it's not the easiest camera to hold because it is trying unsuccessfully to be more of a 'compact' and the grip is too shallow. The best feature on it has to be the 'sweep panorama'. This 'takes' photographic stills at 7fps as you swing the camera to the right (or from the bottom to the top, in a similar direction - when shooting a skyscraper).

Sie hätte die Beste sein können...

Andreas Schiro, Amazon
23 June 2013
  • Summary: Als Berufsfotograf und Kamera-Operator war ich abseits meiner gewohnten "Spiegelreflex-Trümmer" auf der Suche nach einer Taschenkamera für den privaten Gebrauch. Zwar war ich für diesen Zweck mit meiner Lumix FZ-60 zufrieden, nachdem ich diese aber an "Bedürftige" verschenkt habe, gab es einen triftigen Grund die durch etwas Aktuelleres zu ersetzen.

Floja.

  • Summary: Esta camara tiene una estetica fantastica y unos resultados mediocres. La nitidez es mala y la navegacion por los menus a la hora de fotografiar en distintas condiciones es cansina. Es un error pensar en ella como un sustituto de una dslr basica con la excusa de poseer lentes intercambiables. Es una compacta avanzada.

  • Excerpt: Я любитель. Покупал аппарат дочери. Думал типа женский и все такое. Но ее, а потом меня аппарат в процессе съемок не впечатлил. Многие пишут в отзывах, что бледные цвета, бледное небо и т.д. У меня небо и цвета получаются насыщенные, как в Альпах. Но! Сейчас оч. жалею, что выбрал Соньку Некс. За похожую цену лучше б что-то типа Nikon D3100.
  • Pros: Довольно легкий, скорострельный (хотя серию снимаю мало), резкость
  • Cons: Цена, настройки через меню. Крышка объектива сразу потерялась.
