Summary: Bought it for video, along with an adapter for my nicer Nikon lenses. Sony has the best sensors and it shows, this camera takes excellent video. The sound is not great, but is sufficient for syncing up whatever sound you record off-camera.
Great camera! Takes good photos and handles my abuse

Summary: Great camera! Takes good photos and handles my abuse. Image quality is competitive with entry level DSLRs. Lenses are a bit more expensive than with the more common types, especially cannon. Only complaint is that without a viewfinder shooting in the sun can be problematic.
Summary: I love this camera! As a novice photographer I wanted a camera that had a great auto feature and some "extra" features that I could play around with. This fits the bill. Pros: The auto shoot mode takes fabulous pictures both indoors and out.
Summary: I really like this camera; I am interested in learn about photography for hobby purposes, so this was a great investment without breaking the bank. I really love the fact that you can use a SD card instead of just the proprietary Sony memory card.
Summary: This is the most awesome camera ever. The photos are great quality, it's the right size too. My previous sony Dslr a330 was just simply too heavy. This give you the quality without all of the bulk.
Summary: I bought this to replace my Nikon D3100 and one to replace my girlfriends Nikon Coolpix. This camera is the perfect size to carry around, I found that full size DSLR's are too big and it deters me from taking my camera. The picture quality is great and very easy to use.
Summary: The Sony NEX 3NL/B has been a great camera for work and play. I am always getting comments from friends and family about how cool of a camera it is, and "Oh, it takes really nice pictures" and "it's only how much?
I sold my T3i and bought a Sony NEX -- no regrets!
26 May 2014
Summary: I sold my T3i in search of a compact camera that takes crisp pictures in RAW while also capable of shooting HD video-- without the weight, bulk, and "Hey, I'm a tourist!" look of the dSLR. I thought I was going to go Olympus PM-2, but wanted a tilted screen. The PL-5 felt awkward and cheap.
Excellent camera for beginners who want to learn photography

Summary: This is an excellent camera equivalent to entry level SLR. It is equipped with so many features that can challenge any entry level SLR. Picture quality is awesome and it's 5/5 star is also considering it's light weight.
