Summary: i love the f3. this is the only one that i would recommended among the 3-series (3,c3,f3,3n,a3000). I've owned all of them in the last 2 years. all of those bodies were designed with a big compromises. from no multi-port (nex3), no pop-up flash (3,c3), slow burst (c3,3n,a3000) or bad lcd (3n,a3000). the f3 has no glaring compromise.
Summary: This is the most amazing camera ive ever owned. I love the skin softening effect making pictures look soo smooth. Im not a pro, i like to take pictures of my son. They come out beautiful. I dont regret this purchase one bit!!
Summary: great camera, shoots good video as well. easy to use and very portable. pictures are amazing. some many setting- a little beyond my expertice. a true photographers camera. even the pros i see use this camera.
Summary: This item was purchased a a backup camera body for my NEX 6. The price was very reasonable and the camera was in new condition as advertised. During the last two weeks of use, the camera performed flawlessly. If anyone owns a NEX camera, this older model ,the NEX 3, makes a reliable backup even though it may lack some of the features found on the 6 or 7 model. Good to grab while these are still available! Shipping was prompt and the packaging was excellent.
Summary: I love this camera, and it's compact size is great without being too small. At first I was nervous that there weren't going to be enough buttons to quickly configure everything manually, but I have not found it to be an issue since the buttons can be reprogrammed. Image quality rivals DSLRs and the lineup of lenses for the Sony alpha cameras are great, too. Occasionally, in bright sunlight, the screen is hard to see, but tilting the screen a little usually fixes that.
Summary: Chose this camera after reading many reviews. It has the APS C sensor size, the largest available on moderatly priced mirror less cameras, at the price of much less capable cameras, as well as a great feature set. It does not disappoint! I also have a much more expensive Fuji XE1 and I wonder, after using this Sony NEX-3, if the Fuji is worth the difference in price. This Sony was cheaper than buying another lens for the Fuji and now I have a backup camera.
