  • Excerpt: Really superb cam, when travelling I usually carried a Panasonic FZ18 or FZ40(light, great zoom, no bag of lenses). This time I took my NEX too for some night shot because they are unusable with the FZs unless you use a tripod (mine is in garage for ages). Long history short I took 99% of pics with NEX. What a difference the APS sensor made! I am blown away. This cam is very light and fun.

  • Excerpt: I fell in love with Sony's NEX C3. I have the 2nd version that was released last year. I have some photos that I've taken (the above picture is an example). I'm just amazed at the level of quality it takes in such low amounts of light with its huge CMOS sensor. Check out my full review on a blog post @ <a ...

  • Excerpt: After having consulted many (dpreview being amongst them) reviews on that NEX-C3 I finally gave in and decided to try it out as I had a local over here in Belgium for 399 Euros with the 18-55 kit lens and the included little flash. My other camera is a Samsung NX100 with its 20-55mm kit lens and the SEF20A gun (good little flash).

Photography Review
13 March 2012
  • Summary: : I was looking for a replacement to my old entry level DLSR (which I only have the lens that comes with the camera). What I mainly shoot is my young child (in door + outdoor) as well as landscape. The size and weight of the DLSR kept me away from bringing it everywhere with me. Therefore I decided to go for ILC. I was looking for a replacement to my old entry level DLSR (which I only have the lens that comes with the camera).
  • Pros: 1. Stunning photo quality, 2. High ISO peformance comparable to entry level DSLR, 3. Responsive (short start up time + good AF speed), 4. Light weight * small size, 5. Good function (anti-blur, MF assist etc), 6. Good battery life (over 300 photos)
  • Cons: 1. Strange user interface (eg. red-eye reduction not within flash mode. Instead it is under Setup menu), 2. Quality of kit lens not the best among its competitor, 3. Poor flash (need to zoon in to around 24mm to eliminate the dark corners)

Good focus magnification, allowing for precise manual focusing 6. Excellent battery life (over 300 photos) 7.

  • Excerpt: In terms of image resolving power to the 5N (my main use), it does not really make much different, though I still prefer better dynamic range of the 5N. Handling is also an issue since most of the time I use 5N, using C3 is a bit less grip on my hand, and slightly differ button(s) placement compared to 5N. But portability (weigh, size, etc) is on par both of them, and that's why I chose them.
