This camera may not look like much but it takes fantastic photo's! I was in the market for a dslr after our Casio exilim, which I love, let me down again with it's inability to produce acceptable night-time photo's. After a year of research, online and local, I decided upon the Sony Nex-3 and I am very impressed. It was the fastest processor for it's class, takes awesome night shots, action shots and macro; perfect for what I was looking for. The panoramic feature is the best out of all the camera's I tried...and let me mention that not all offer panoramic. Good luck in your search!

I bought this for because of the panorama setting and the tilting screen. Because of the funny name Wal-Mart gave the camera I thought I was getting the NEX-C3K not the NEX-3 which sells at Ritz cameras for $399. I still love the ease of use and picture quality inspite of paying $50 more for the camera then I should have.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I didn't realize there was no viewfinder when I ordered the camera, which would have been a reason for me NOT to buy it. Now that I have been using the camera for over a week under many conditions, I am quite pleased with it. My vision isn't the greatest, but the 3" LCD is very sharp and I can see fine even in bright sunshine! I now have an anti-glare screen protector on it, and it's still fine. This camera is very easy to use, there are lots of Tips right in the camera, plenty of auto settings to choose from, as well as choices for manual settings. This camera is much lighter than my DSLR A300, which can be a bit of a beast to carry around all day. I was a bit dubious of such a small camera being good enough to cover my needs, but so far I am VERY impressed and happy to have it! I am amazed at the high quality of the movies, I didn't expect them to be so sharp, and the sound is good, too, especially for a CAMERA. NOW, I don't have to carry the camcorder, which lightens my load even more! :) I am VERY HAPPY with this camera!

It’s not the high end NEX camera, but it delivers sharp photos with a very fast shutter speed. It has lots of great settings and user tips all easily accessible in its easy to use menu system. My favorite part is the panorama setting that allows you with the push of a button to create sweeping landscape photos. The battery does take a while to charge but I don't see that as a con. Overall it’s the best camera I’ve ever owned.

This thing does everything. Takes very good pictures and you can set it to take pictures whatever way you want. I really like the speed it will capture an image. The only downfall is that the flash is seperate, so its usually not on the camera when we need it in a hurry. Most of the time though we really don't need it so its not that bad.

We wanted DSLR quality with ease of use & not a huge expense & we found it here. I've had it about 2 months & have taken hundreds of pics of my kids & at events. I am more than impressed.

I bought this so that I could have a lightweight substitute for my DSLR camera. I use it all the time and love the results. It has the largers sensor and shoots RAW images.

I am a photographer, I carry huge DSLR Camera's around and yes they are heavy and tiring. So I had been looking a camera that I can take with me all around with my family and kids to be my everyday basis that will take great photos and less heavier and not as bulky as DSLR. This one take great photos, even in a bad lighting. You just have to set up your ISO and all that but I am very pleased and happy with this one! THis is a keeper.
