Chris, Ripon Professional photographer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Lots of features to dabble with or if you want flip it to auto use is as a point and shoot. The built in flash is a real bonus. The HD video quality is superb. The quality lens with image stabilisation is really apparent, especially in low light conditions. The NEX-F3 camera is light, the weight is in the lens. The ability to change lenses makes it really adaptable. Also the programmable 'soft keys' are good. (see the bad points) . The battery holds a good charge too. I did buy another one for backup and a battery charger. A good value for money camera.
Bad points:
A few grumbles, saying that, only minor ones. I think sony did a bit of a cheapskate job with charging the battery still in the camera as standard. I did not like the tiny USB connection on the camera, it seems rather flimsy for continual use. To get over this I bought an external charger and battery. It's up to you, but there are non Sony chargers and batteries available, have a look on Ebay or Amazon to see the price range. - Another grumble and I think I will get over this with constant use. Most of the functions are menu driven, so not intuitive to start with. You can programme a few 'soft keys' to short cut to the functions you would use often. I knew this before I bought the camera via reviews. The last moan is, I would have liked the viewing screen to tilt down more. It flips up to 180deg to take self portraits, but down only about 10deg. I think down would have been better for viewing 'over the head' shots. I would use that situation more.But that is personal to what you would use the camera for. Again, I knew this via reviews. So I can live with that.
