Looking for a camera that captures your memories in Digital SLR quality yet is digital compact camera? The NEX-C3 is an interchangeable lens camera weighing just 225 grams that’s slim enough to slip in and out of a bag or pocket. Like NEX-3 and NEX-5, this camera eliminates the mirror box and viewfinder optics found in conventional SLRs to offer a perfect combination of low weight, compact size and SLR photographic performance. It’s one of the lightest, thinnest interchangeable lens cameras in the world today.
Despite its size, NEX-C3 performs like a pro. On board is a large and powerful 16.2 megapixel Exmor™ APS HD CMOS sensor enabling you to take D-SLR quality images with intense colour, rich tonal gradation and subtle background defocusing effects. This sophisticated sensor is identical in size and performance to those used in Sony α digital SLR cameras and more than 13 times larger than the 1/2.4" sensors found in most digital compact cameras. Which is over 1 and a half times bigger than micro four thirds cameras. Combined with an advanced BIONZ™ image processing engine, the sensor provides crystal clear imaging with exceptionally low noise.
Put off by too much complexity? With NEX-C3, anyone can experience the artistic satisfaction of creative photography. The easy-to-use Photo Creativity interface gives quick access to a range of creative settings simply by pressing the centre button on the control wheel. Seven different functions and settings can be accessed via the control wheel including Picture Effect, Background Defocus Control, Soft Skin Effect, Color, Brightness, Vividness and Self Timer or Continuous Advance. The effects of various settings can be viewed in real-time on the LCD monitor for ease of operation.
Although lightweight and compact in size for easy carrying, NEX-C3 includes a large high resolution 16.2 megapixel Exmor™ APS HD CMOS sensor. Shoot D-SLR quality images with intense colour, rich tonal gradation and subtle background defocusing effects. This sophisticated sensor is identical in size and performance to those used in Sony a digital SLR cameras and more than 13 times larger than the sensors found in most digital compact cameras and over 1.5 times bigger than the sensors found in micro four thirds cameras. Combined with an advanced BIONZ™ image processing engine and high ISO sensitivity (ISO 100–ISO12800), the sensor provides crystal clear imaging with exceptionally low noise, even in low light.
Capture your memories anyway you choose. Press the MOVIE button to film HD 720p High Definition videos in razor-sharp detail with stereo sound, even in low light. Still pictures are clear and precise with 16.2 megapixels and the freedom to utilise a wide range of E-mount interchangeable lenses. You can also shoot high resolution landscapes in 3D with 3D Sweep Panorama. This impressive feature captures two Sweep Panorama images from a single series of photos, then creates a 3D image up to 23 megapixels in size for viewing on a 3D compatible TV.
The Sony NEX-C3 comes in black or silver with either a 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 OSS standard zoom lens (SEL1855) or a twin kit of 16mm F2.8 ultra compact wide angle lens and the 18-55mm standard zoom lens.
