Have you ever thought of buying a DSLR camera but have second thoughts because of its colossal heavy size? The quality of the system camera is way too ingenious than compact digital cameras. But those small digicams are easier to carry around that’s why some people are stuck with the idea of keeping it. Believe me, I haven’t taken hubby’s huge cam when I go out with my friends. It would be heavier than my handbag and much more the same hanging from my neck. I’d rather slide my good old digicam in my handbag. Well, maybe it’s about time for you and me to keep up on the latest digital cams in the market today. Why not peek on Sony Nex-3A, the compact digital camera with interchangeable lens.
With this Sony Nex-3A, you can shoot pictures with DSLR-like quality and capture stunning HD videos. It’s brilliantly easy to use, no complicated buttons and menus. I fancy this red one but for non- red suckers, there’s black and silver for you. Available in shops come June. The preliminary price here is 5,600sek. Hmm, that would be $700 more or less. Ack!
Sony Nex-3A features/specs:
14.2 megapixels (total sensor pixels)
Interchangeable lens system
720p HD movie
Sweep panorama with 3D
Background defocus control
Intelligent Auto shooting
10x precision digital zoom
7.5cm LCD screen

Nice review Marlene, a good one. As a photographer you always understand better than me and I hope next time you put a hand on review to increase our knowledge.

Thank you. I’ve learned about cameras from hubby and I’m hoping to learn more. I must say I’m still not an expert on this.
This segment of digital cameras is a very interesting segment where they try to include the features of the DSLR cameras into the small digicams. By the way, I am interested about the zoom of this one. I mean the optical zoom. You have mentioned 10x precision digital zoom (I’m not sure if precision digital zoom is same as the optical zoom).

About the optical zoom, it depends on the lens. The lens that comes with the camera has a fixed focal length of 16 mm. In other words no zoom. There are 2 other lenses available. 18-55 mm with 3.1x zoom and 18-200 mm with 11.1x zoom.
Thank you for asking.
Thanks. Btw, I have written a post about it too, along with some history and tech terms about these compact DSLRs. Well, the CommentLuv is linking to that post.

Hehee, ok ra oi. Maayo gani nang gamay kay sayon bitbiton. Bitaw, nagkabarato na baya ron ang mga digicam.
Great review.Sony products are always good.One more thing I would like to share with you is that the I like the design.It is so simple.But I prefer the black one.

Oh, yes, I agree with you and this one is another smart from Sony. Sure, the black one will be yours, it looks cool, too.

what a lovely gadget and nice colour too. yup, dslr can be pretty bulky to lug around but it takes quality pics. i’ve a nikon d90 and the performance is excellent.
.-= life ramblings´s last blog ..RT- My trip to St Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City =-.
Yes, that’s what I don’t like about it. Oh, the same as hubby’s, not easy to use thisn nikon d90.
ScandinavianPhoto presenterar Sony NEX-3 och NEX-5 i en video på Youtube,
Kommer ganska mycket nya modeller nu. Själv är jag lite sugen på Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2. Har en elektronisk sökare, vridbar skärm och kan filma i 1280×720.
Tack så mycket för videon. Verkligen en fin liten kamera. Men jag måste kolla Panasonic också, låter bra som du säger.

I am a trying hard photographer. Really love to take shots of different angles. But my photography skills sucks! hehe.

Practice makes perfect. 🙂
We’ve been thinking of buying these kinds of camera. Imagine, the power of DSLR and the convenience of Point and Shoot camera, all-in-one package. I’m not a professional photographer and i don’t need an DSLR.

Then this a good alternative for DSLR. It’s smaller and cheaper, too.

Ganyan si Paul, matipid na tao. 🙂
Baka magulat na lang tayo pag nakita natin yan, meron pala lahat, hahaa!
I love the color! I haven’t seen that here yet, eh kasi pala sa June pa. I’m planning to buy a new Sony digicam kaso walang stock yung red color na gusto ko, black lang, pero pwede na. Wish ko lang DSLR na yun, kaso super mahal nun, di kaya ng budget hehe. Parang gusto ko tuloy abangan to, magkano kaya aabutin to dito.
Naku, hintayin mo na lang ito para solid na’ng digicam mo. Compact na, may dslr quality pa. At ang gaing pa ng video nito.
