Digital Camera Review: Sony Alpha NEX-F3

14 April 2013
  • Excerpt: The Alpha NEX series of cameras straddle two worlds. They have the sensors of DSLR cameras but compact bodies reminiscent of point-and-shoots. The large lenses signal their serious semi-pro nature, though small pancake lenses are available, too.

Review: Sony Alpha NEX-F3

8 October 2012
  • Excerpt: When I first picked up Sony’s new NEX-F3 , I could only wonder whether its sensors would be dynamic enough to capture the giant chip on my shoulder. The camera is aimed squarely at what I think of as the purgatory market; “compact” with interchangeable lenses and mirrorless shutter.
  • Pros: Lightweight. Excellent manual capabilities and good lenses that lead to sharp pictures. Surprisingly good for a 0 camera.
  • Cons: Flimsy-feeling plastic body does not inspire confidence. Anemic hand grip. Touchy joystick interface can get in the way of the camera’s best performance. No external battery charger, so you have to plug the camera into the wall.

  • Cons: Consistently seems to underexpose by 1/3 or 2/3 stop, Menu-driven user interface still frustrating to use, even with addition of custom button, Design annoyances: camera's size advantage lost when a lens is attached; LCD's 16:9 aspect ratio not suited for still shooting; LCD doesn't tilt downward...

Sony Alpha NEX-F3

PC Magazine
23 September 2012
  • Conclusion: The Sony Alpha NEX-F3 is a worthy successor to the Editors' Choice NEX-C3. The latest iteration impresses with superb image quality, even at very high ISO settings, and you get a deeper handgrip, built-in flash, and support for an optional EVF.
  • Pros: Built-in flash. Optional EVF available. Great high ISO performance. Customizable controls. 180° tilting LCD. 1080p video support.
  • Cons: Front-facing LCD limits downward tilt. APS-C lenses are larger than some other mirrorless systems. Limited lens library. No dedicated battery charger.

  • Summary: We had a great time with the Sony NEX –F3. From its solid construction down to its usability, it’s really a great entry level NEX camera. In our opinion, this will be a good intro camera for photography beginners who are transitioning from their point-and-shoot camera.
