Sony announces the NEX-F3

Sony has announced the release of their new entry-level CSC, the NEX-F3.
As a direct replacement for the NEX-C3, the F3 takes a closer resemblance in terms of appearance to it’s older brother, the NEX-7, with a deeper hand grip and taller stature – primarily due to the new built-in pop-up flash unit. Inside the plastic framework there’s an APS-C sized 16.1Mp CMOS sensor (the same seen in the newly announced A37) that now caters an ISO range of 200-16000; improving on the 200-12,800 range seen on the NEX-C3, and beating that of the Panasonic Lumix GF5 (160-12,800). The re-worked sensor can now capture full HD video, too (1920x1080 @50i/25p), and features a Clear Image Zoom – a form of digital zoom (stay with me here) that doubles the effective focal length, whilst still maintaining the full 16.1Mp count. On the back, the 3in, 921k dot LCD can now tilt an almost full 180° upwards so that it can be viewed from the front of the camera, aiding in self-portraits.
