The Sony NEX-F3, announced today, is the next generation in Sony's lineup of mirrorless interchangeable-lens compact cameras and is designed for ease of use, self-portraits, HD video, and high-quality images. Built around Sony's highly-regarded 16MP APS-C sensor, the camera offers intelligent autoexpsoure, excellent image quality in low light, and the ability to capture full HD video at 1080/60i/24p. Said to be pocket sized, the camera's 3-inch, 921k dot LCD monitor tilts 180 degrees so you can easily compose self-portraits. Sony claims 470-shot battery life, a significant improvement, as well as a class-leading 5.5 fps burst rate. For snapshooters looking for the flexibility of an interchangeable-lens camera combined with the simplicity of a compact digital camera,the Sony NEX-F3 may be a worthy candidate.
