I am a student in high school and I have been saving up for this camera for a long time, and let me just say...it was worth it! I researched a lot about this camera and found it better than the alpha NEX-5n. I absolutely love this camera! Super easy to use and crisp high quality shots. The focus is great and its light weight doesn't put extra pounds into my already overbearing purse:) The camera itself is awesome for the price and I would recommend it to anyone who wants crisp wowing shots in a simple click!:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by bfltsnik Fantastic camera
I wanted to upgrade from my old point and shoot and purchased this camera a few months ago. I have not been disappointed! The quality of the pictures is terrific. Took some family portraits that were just as good as some we got with a professional a few years ago. Battery life is terrific. Low light performance is great--rarely need the flash. Video looks great too. Other reviewers said they couldn't see the LCD screen in sunlight--I wonder if they turned on the sunlight mode in the menu. When I do that I can see the screen fine in daylight. Having to charge the battery in the camera can be annoying. Wish video did 1080p, but video still looks great and very smooth. Easy to carry around. Much smaller than all my friends' DSLR's, but the pictures are just as good if not better! Very happy with this camera!

I have to say that this is one of the best cameras i have used in a while. The features are so easy to learn (since I am use to a point and shoot). I would recommend this camera to anybody. At first I had the C3K but then I upgraded to the F3 because of the video resolution. Full 1080 HD won me over because I am going to a lot of video recording. I am happy with the 180 flip screen. This really makes taking self portraits easy. I am going on a trip to Washington D.C. and Maryland and by having the flip screen I can include myself in all of the pictures and not have to worry about if the focus is off or the zoom is too close. Great camera.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JCoop My first DSLR
Before, I would use disposable cameras or my BlackBerry and would take horrible pictures of amazing things. I was always disappointed because it never would look as good in the picture, so last summer I broke down and decided to invest in a good camera. I didn't really have any experience using all of the settings, but I thought this camera was quite easy to use right out of the box.
I would have appreciated it if the owners manual gave an explanation on each of the settings and how to use them best.
The other complaint I have is the lens hood blocks part of the flash. When taking a photo with the built-in flash there will be a large shadow in the bottom left side of the image, unless I remove it or place it backward on the lens.
My last is more of a recommendation. I think the built in flash should be able to lock at multiple angels. This way if the user is trying to bounce the light off the ceiling he/she doesn't have to hold the flash at that angle.
Overall, I've been quite pleased with the product.

Overall my favorite Sony camera that I've used, actually my favorite APC Sensor included camera. I thought of buying a Nikon D90, but why would I want to lug around a big DSLR like that? I love my alpha, I love it's manual controls, some complain about the button overlay, but I love it and it's custom button setting as well. I say buy it! I'd highly recommend buying a 50mm f/1.8 lens for this camera too. It's great for starting out in Photography and even for the pro's this is the camera you'd want as a secondary carry on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by borjabobby Very good choice
I bought the camera a month ago and I'm very surprised of the quality of made and the picture that this camera gives for the price that it was sold and the size that has. I wasn't sure if buy the F3 or E-PL3 of Olympus, but I finally decided to be the Sony, becouse the features were greater and becouse I'm a fan of the brand.
