Sony launches the NEX-F3 entry-level interchangeable lens camera

Sony just upgraded their interchangeable lens camera portfolio by launching the NEX-F3, which is essentially an upgrade (replacement?) to the NEX-C3 but at a lower price point.

Having used the amazing NEX-C3, it sure can still use some improvements which the NEX-F3 happily addressed. We’re seeing an increase in overall bulk which is a good thing for a more natural handling along with the now-visible grip. Then there’s the additional built-in pop-up flash we sorely miss on the C3, and also the rear display can now swivel upwards to 180-degree to help with those self-portrait shots.

It still uses the impressive APS-C sensor but now with a 16.1-megapixel count which can get to a max of 16,000 ISO. It can also take 1920 x 1080 videos at 60fps interlaced or 24fps progressive, whereas the C3 can only shoot in 720p. There’s also a new software feature called Auto Portrait Framing which crops portrait shots for those who find obeying the rule-of-thirds challenging.

The Sony NEX-F3 goes for Php 27,999 which includes an 18-55mm zoom lens, 8GB memory stick and carrying case. The price makes it the most affordable NEX camera around and is quite competitively priced compared to its competition.
