"It's rare that you can find a camera that delivers the ease of use that casual snapshooters are after and the image quality and performance for which enthusiasts strive."

Get great shots, minus the fuss. The interchangeable-lens NEX-F3 camera offers the quality, creative options and flexibility of its DSLR counterparts in a much smaller, pocket-friendly format you can take anywhere. Even better, it's simple to use with an intuitive interface and incredibly effective auto mode that makes it easy to capture gorgeous images in any conditions.
The NEX-F3 offers the convenience of a built-in flash right at your fingertips. Perfect when an extra burst of light is needed to nail the shot, the powerful pop-up flash illuminates the frame so no detail is left in the dark.
Now it's easy to create portraits with a truly professional look. Auto Portrait Framing mode uses Face Detection technology and the "rule of thirds" principle to produce an additional image that's cropped into a beautifully balanced portrait. And thanks to By Pixel Super Resolution technology, your portraits feature the same number of pixels as the original shots for crisp, clear images that make for gorgeous enlargements.
Take the guesswork out of self-portraits with a 180° tiltable LCD screen. Just flip up the screen, frame the shot, then press the shutter release button. The three-second timer gives you ample time to prep for the pic so you're smiling and ready. Since the LCD faces you with a mirror image, you can accurately compose perfectly framed self-portraits, star in your own video or get in on the group shot.
Does navigating camera settings seem like a daunting task? Just enable Superior Auto mode, and allow the camera to pick the perfect setting for you. Even under challenging shooting conditions—like fast action, low-light or high-contrast scenes—Superior Auto mode automatically detects the situation and activates the optimal setting for each scene. It's the easiest way to walk away with gorgeous, professional-looking photos every time.
Let your imagination run free with 15 in-camera creative effects for photos and video. Transform ordinary portraits into colorful works of art with Pop Color. Get the tilt-shift photography look with Miniature effect, or try Toy Camera for a nostalgic, lo-fi feel. And that's just the beginning. Effects are displayed in real-time on the LCD so you can test out your options and preview results before taking the shot.
All screen images simulated.
The quality of a DSLR in about half the size and weight. The Sony Alpha NEX-F3 interchangeable-lens camera boasts a large 16.1MP APS-C HD sensor for the type of incredible high-resolution photos and Full HD video you'd expect from a camera twice its size. Combined with an advanced BIONZ image processing engine, you'll get incredibly rich, clear quality with reduced graininess and noise—even in challenging low-light conditions. With a 180° tilting 3.0" LCD screen, you can turn the camera on yourself to snap self-portraits or star in your own video clip—a three-second timer gives you plenty of time to perfect your composition and smile for the camera. A built-in pop-up flash is there when you need an extra dose of illumination to make the shot. The included 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom lens features smooth and silent AF operation with a built-in Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM) to handle a full range of shots.

The NEX-F3 makes it truly a snap to take satisfying self-portraits. Just flip the LCD screen up, frame the shot, then press the shutter release button.

Give your portrait photos a professional look with Auto Portrait Framing. Enable it when shooting portraits and the image is automatically cropped to create a nicely balanced composition.
