While its predecessor in NEX 3, NEX-C3, is so proud with “the smallest and lightest” in the world, this Sony NEX-F3 doesn’t really care about it. It’s focusing more to give you a better performance and features. Now you can do a self-portrait easier, because its 3.0-inch Extra Fine LCD touchscreen is able to be tilted up to 180 degree. As note, it’s the first E-mount camera that has 180 degree tiltable LCD.
Another extension compared to the NEX-C3, this new camera can do video recording in Full HD AVCHD 1920 x 1080 50i/24p and has more picture effects. Yes, it still keeps a 16.1MP APS-C HD image sensor with BIONZ processor, but it has more pixel gross, 16.7MP. A built-in flash is also included for helping you to get ready to face low light condition.
In addition, the NEX-F3 sports E-mount 18-55mm lens system, ISO 200 – 16000, up to 5.5 frames per second, optional EV, dual memory slot, USB, HDMI, and more. And thanks to ergonomic grip design, it ensures your comfort in carrying and shooting.
The release date and pricing
Sony said the NEX-F3 is going to hit market in June 2012, next month. In US, this new camera will cost you MSRP $600, including an 18-55mm kit zoom lens. Which one is your color: silver, black or white.
