Summary: This is a great little camera sold in a nice bundle for a good price. I usually work with far more costly cameras, and I'm surprised at how well this one compares. Unfortunately, on my first outdoor test with it, I noticed a smudgy dot in the lower left corner of the LCD screen. Took it to a pro camera shop and they diagnosed it immediately: Defective sensor. So it had to go back. I don't hold this against either Walmart or Sony. These things can happen.
Summary: We needed to upgrade our digital camera at work, but wanted pro features on a limited budget. Found this camera bundle which will allow us to use the Sony E-mount lenses from a NEX video camera we already have. We did some testing and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the stills and video. The camera allows you to manually control all the settings, so for the price it's quite powerful. The interface is easy to learn and the multi-angle screen is handy too.
Summary: I use my NEX3N with my old OM lenses and an adapter and I'm quite happy with the results. This setup is not recommended for action photography of any sort because the old lenses don't allow for auto-focus. I still manage to take very good insect photos using my old Olympus OM extension tubes combined with my 50mm or 100mm lenses, and a Fotasy adapter for OM lenses. I had problems with the image resolution in the beginning.
Summary: I made many comparisons on the internet, including side by side photo comparisons. This camera seems to have a very good image quality, better than many more expansive DSLRs. I have been using it for few weeks now, it is easy to use, not as heavy and bulky as regular DSLRs. Image and video quality are much better than point and shoot cameras. It is a very good choice for entry to the DSLR world.
Summary: So I wanted a camera that would take quality photos and videos but did not want to invest in a DSLR and didn't not want to waste money on a point and shoot. I found someone on Youtube that used this camera in their vlogs and I was sold. I love this lens this camera comes with because it blurs the background of an image if you know how to perfectly place the subject at a certain distance away from the camera. It makes mediocre images look a little more professional.
Summary: We were looking for a camera that would allow some opportunity to play with the lenses while still being able to take good quality pictures quickly. This camera fits the bill. Ease of use is good and picture quality is excellent! We have been trying to replace one of the original sony digital cameras and have had a hard time.
