Sony outs NEX-F3 camera

Promises DLSR results from a compact camera

Sony has introduced its NEX-F3 compact digital camera.

The NEX-F3 aims to bring quality results from a pocket-sized body with interchangeable lenses and a16.1 Mp Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor. We don’t know how much it will cost yet but it will be available next month.

Sony said: "If you’re looking for DSLR-style results with less to carry, the NEX-F3 compact system camera from Sony makes ‘big-camera’ picture quality refreshingly accessible."

The camera features a flip out 3-inch LCD screen for things like self-portraits and a built-in pop-up flash to save you carrying a separate one. Sony touts a battery life of 470 shots, an 18 percent improvement on the NEX-C3. The camera can be charged via USB.

Software includes Smile Shutter which takes the picture automatically for you and the Superior Auto mode "intelligently recognises a wide range of scenes and subjects, adjusting settings with the skill of a seasoned photographer".

The NEX-F3 is also capable of shooting video in Full HS 1080p resolution at 25fps.
