If you are looking to make the leap from a point-and-shoot camera to one where you can swap the lenses, you can’t miss the Sony NEX-F3. The NEX-F3 is the direct successor to NEX-C3, and takes over the bottom spot in the NEX lineup. It sports a 16-megapixel APS-C image sensor that delivers top-notch images in challenging light.

Above the average battery life for a mirrorless camera, the NEX-F3 records 1080p AVCHD video with a great tilting LCD that even lets you shoot self-portraits. Versatile video mode is available. The device went on sale in the US market since 2012. Three body colors for you to choose: silver, black and white.
