Sony launches compact camera with DSLR quality images
The latest release from Sony comes in the form of the NEX-F3 compact and promises DSLR-style results without the fuss of carrying around heavy equipment. With interchangeable lenses this new camera is fun and accessible to use if you’re hoping to achieve more than just a snapshot.
The pocket-sized mirrorless NEX-F3 has the same features as those in the α E-mount family and bigger sensors found in your usual point-and-shoot. At 16.1 effective megapixels the Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor captures more light with little noise and sharp Full HD video. It’s great for taking self portraits with the 180° flip LCD screen and getting in close to your subjects with Clear Image Zoom, which doubles effective magnification on your lens.
The NEX-F3 is simple to use for inexperienced photographers who want to add a touch of professionalism to their images and is great for the everyday shooter who can just pop it in their bag.
• APS-C size image sensor with 16.1 effective megapixels
• 180° tiltable LCD for easy self-portraits
• Built-in flash, helpful in low-light conditions
• Auto Portrait Framing for easy, top-quality portraits
• AVCHD (50i/25p) ensures smooth, high quality video
• Clear Image Zoom doubles effective focal length while maintaining full pixel count
• Great results made easy with Superior Auto mode

An ideal travel partner for the NEX-F3 is the new SEL18200LE E18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS LE offers a powerful 11x zoom range and superb resolution in an easy-to-carry lens. Smaller and 12 per cent lighter than the SEL18200, the new E-mount lens features Optical Steady Shot to compensate for the effects of hand-shake. Direct Manual Focus gives precise control over touching-up focus for fine creative control over beautiful images.
The super-soft LCS-EMH carry case gives quick access to the camera and attached lens; while the LCS-EJC3 carry case fully protects the camera and lens.
The new NEX-F3 compact system camera from Sony is available in the UK from June 2012.
