The Sony Nex F3 is a compact system camera. It has a lot of the features you would expect to find on a Digital SLR, but the camera is a much smaller size. This type of camera is a good choice for someone who sees photography as a hobby.
It has 16 megapixels. Other features include manual exposure (Fully Manual, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority), a burst mode that can capture still images at a rate of 5 frames per second and 25 auto focus points.
You can shoot Full High Definition movies. The Nex F3 is capable of recording stereo sound.
The LCD screen is 3 inches in size. The screen can be tilted 180 degrees and flips up above the camera. This makes it easy for you to hold the camera at arm’s length and take self portrait pictures.
Other features include the ability to create 360 degree panoramas. There is also a special shooting mode that will throw backgrounds out of focus. This helps to highlight your subject and can be particularly effective when taking portrait shots. To get round the problem of loss of detail in the lightest and darkest areas of a scene there is an Auto HDR mode. This takes three pictures and combines them together automatically to give you more detail in those difficult areas.
The battery can be charged by attaching the camera to a computer via a USB port.
The Sony Nex F3 is usually sold with one lens to get you started. Two lens kits are available too.
