Sony Alpha NEX-C3

The Sony Alpha Nex-C3 is the first of Sony’s second generation of mirrorless cameras, following the introduction of the NEX-3 and NEX-5 in 2010. If these two models showed how committed Sony to offering APS-C capabilities in a compact form factor, the point is underlined by the arrival of the still-smaller C3.

Get all the performance of a DSLR in about half the size and half the weight. The NEX-C3’s exquisitely compact dimensions make it the smallest interchangeable lens camera in the world with a large, image enhancing APS-C size sensor — you’ll want to take everywhere. Experience gorgeous HD movies, astounding low-light pictures, continuous shooting up to 5.5 frames per second, incredible panorama shots and Live View on the tiltable 3″ LCD.

Sony Alpha NEX-C3 reviews

There are a few reviews of Sony Alpha Nex C-3.

The says in his review that Sony Alpha Nex-C3 advantage is that can captures a 720p video, with a good quality but it can’t shoot in 1080p, then it is not full HD.

The 16-megapixel Alpha NEX-C3 builds upon the successes of its predecessor – the NEX-3 – sporting a slimmer body and redesigned APS-C sensor. It also adds a reported 20-percent boost in battery life, improved low light performance, and a slimmer, more attractive design.

In review, the advantages of Sony Alpha Nex-C3 are small dimension (than its predecessor), large APS-C sensor and tilting 3-inch LCD:

 The NEX-C3 is able to deliver D-SLR quality images in a compact body, one that is even smaller than the Olympus PEN E-P3  or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2, but packs a larger sensor than any Micro Four Thirds camera. The NEX-C3 follows the tradition of the NEX-3 as our Editors’ Choice for compact interchangeable lens cameras.

In his Sony Alpha Nex-C3 review, days that Sony Nex-C3 unique attraction is that is based on the APS-C sensor format, commonly used in DSLR’s and can therefore offer comparable image quality and noise performance:

Given the APS-C sensor concealed within, the NEX-C3 really is a miracle of modern miniaturisation. Measuring 110 x 60 x 33mm and weighing 225 grams with battery and card (but no lens) it’s smaller even than the NEX-5. It measures up well against the Lumix GF3 and, the curviness of the latter apart, with the kit lens attached they are similarly dimensioned. While the Olympus E-PL3 has a slightly thicker body thanks to its built-in stabilisation, the smaller kit lens makes it the least bulky of the three overall.

In conclusion of his NEX-C3 review, says:

…the new NEX-C3 compact system camera is more refinement than revolution in comparison with the original NEX-3 of 2010, adding a couple of million extra pixels, better battery performance, fun digital effects filters, and minor control layout changes. None of which make a huge difference. Still, approaching this model afresh, it is a very capable camera in its own right for existing snapshot users looking to up their game, delivering consistently sharp and colourful results.
