Sony Alpha NEX-F3
An entry-level mirrorless camera from 2012.
By Hillary Grigonis, Last updated on: 6/19/2014

The NEX-F3 camera is the logical upgrade to Sony's NEX-C3, replacing the former with a slightly thicker build but adding a couple much-needed features. First and most importantly, the F3 now has a built-in flash, eschewing the former's bulky and awkward clip-on unit. The body is .3" thicker than the C3, but we think the pop-up flash alone is worth it. Video has also been improved to 1080/24p, and the flip-out screen now flips a full 180 degrees upward for self-portraits. Reviews have noted improved image quality over the C3 as well, a truly impressive feat, although autofocus isn't as good as Panasonic's G1X. The F3 looks to be a near-flawless entry-level mirrorless shooter.
