Micro Four Third cameras have been garnering a lot of attention of late, especially from the digital camera manufacturers. These cameras boast of DSLR-like features and image quality, and come with interchangeable lenses, but are lightweight. They share image sensor size and specifications with Four Third system DSLRs, but do not employ pentaprisms for the sake of compactness, thus sacrificing flange focal distance.
The Sony NEX-3 is one such camera. Boasting of promising features and performance, this 14 MP camera with large barrel removable lens, with manual zoom and focus rings, can also capture images in RAW format. Thanks to support up to ISO 128000 due to its large Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor, low-light photography is very much possible. And it also supports 720p HD video capture at 29.97 fps with stereo sound. Read on to find more.
While the bundle is good, it would have been better to include an HDMI cable to connect to an HDTV. Also, you may find yourself running out of space with the 4GB card, especially while recording HD videos.
