    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!

    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.
