180° Flip LCD Screen A fuss-free way to capture beautiful self-portraits
NEX-F3 makes it a breeze for you to snap beautifully composed self-portraits. As its 180° Flip LCD Screen can be tilted upwards to face you directly, it is easy to create a perfect picture of yourself and your friends. All you have to do is flip up the LCD screen, frame the shot, and press the shutter release button. It's that simple.
Built-in Flash Brighten the scene whenever you need
Now you won't have to worry about forgetting to bring your external flash during your shoots. Whenever an extra burst of light is needed, you can count on the Built-in Flash to deliver the results you desire. The Built-in Flash provides ample light when combined with the APS-C size sensor's high sensitivity performance, to produce brilliant flash photography in all settings.
16.1 Megapixels Exmor™ APS HD CMOS Sensor Add more depth and drama to your images with a larger sensor
Thanks to its 16.1 Megapixels Exmor™ APS HD CMOS Sensor (APS-C size), NEX-F3 produces stunning image quality in almost any lighting conditions. The sensor's extra-large surface area – same size as sensors found in advance-class DSLRs – heightens sensitivity in low-light conditions and strengthens background-defocusing effects. As a result, every picture you take comes with rich details, accurate colours and smooth tonal gradation for a more dramatic feel.
AVCHD Full HD Video Recording Create cinematic moments with every recording
Start filming Full HD movies of life's treasured moments in AVCHD. You'll appreciate the natural smoothness that 60i (50i for PAL) brings to your movies. For a more cinematic feel, you can shoot at 24p (25p for PAL), which has the same frame rate as traditional movies. You can even apply different Picture Effects to enhance your recordings. And with the built-in microphone, you can play back your movies with crisp and clear audio quality.
11 Picture Effect Modes Transform everyday scenes into artistic images
Turn any ordinary photograph into a work of art with our 11 Picture Effect modes, which give you a total of 15 fun effects for endless creative possibilities. Without the need for a PC, you can instantly change colours, add textures or apply stunning visual effects to your photos or movies.
Auto Portrait Framing Capture perfectly composed portraits
Give your portrait photos a professional look with Auto Portrait Framing. When it is enabled, it identifies the subject's face with Face Detection before automatically cropping parts of the scene away to create a well-balanced composition. The original photo is also saved so you can compare and decide which version expresses the best mood.
Advanced BIONZ™ Image Processor
The lightning-fast Advanced BIONZ™ Image Processor employs powerful algorithms to generate high-quality images and movies with enhanced colour reproductions, richer tonal gradations and clearer details.
Easy Charging Via USB Port
Instead of removing your battery for charging, you can now power it up by connecting the NEX-F3 to either a PC or AC adaptor (included), via a micro USB cable (included). The AC adaptor is much more compact than bulky battery chargers, thus helping you save space during your photography trips.
5.5 fps Continuous Shooting
Shoot continuously up to 5.5 fps in Speed Priority Continuous mode with the large Exmor™ APS HD CMOS sensor and responsive BIONZ™ Processor. It's a great way to capture fleeting facial expressions and other fast-breaking scenes.
Make your subjects stand out from the scene by blurring the background, and use the live preview on the LCD monitor to see if you are satisfied before applying the changes.
Learn about Background Defocus »
Capturing three frames rapidly and digitally combining them into one image, you can create striking images with a super-realistic range of shadows and highlight details.
When power is switched off, a built-in anti-dust system enables a vibration that shakes off dust on the sensor to keep it clean, thus reducing blemishes on images.
Get fast and precise auto-focusing with Continuous AF that simultaneously refocuses according to movement, and Single-shot AF that locks on a subject in focus.
Face Detection Technology
Face Detection Technology is able to recognise up to eight faces and instantly focus on the faces to apply optimum exposure, white balance, flash and more; Smile Shutter automatically releases the shutter when subjects smile.
Clear Image Zoom For Clear, High-resolution Telephoto Shots
Clear Image Zoom extends the reach of the lens while maintaining superior image quality, making it an excellent way for you to expand your shooting possibilities when you don't have a telephoto lens by your side. When you can't zoom in close enough, simply activate Clear Image Zoom. NEX-F3 will utilise Sony's proprietary By Pixel Super Resolution Technology to enlarge the image up to an additional 2x, producing sharp photos despite the increased magnification.
Handheld Twilight Mode
By capturing six frames at a high speed and combining them into one, it results in exceptionally clear images with reduced noise, without having to use a flash or a tripod during low-light shooting conditions.
