The Sony NEX-F3 is a follow-up to the popular NEX-C3. While the resolution is the same as the NEX-C3 (via an APS-C 16.1MP CMOS sensor), the NEX-F3 steps up in a couple of departments. The NEX-F3 offers full HD 1920 x 1080 video capture in 60i or 24p flavors via AVCHD codec.
Additionally, the NEX-F3 features a 180-degree tiltable LCD screen, which allows you to live view from the front of the camera. The F3 also sports a built-in pop-up flash (something that was missed on the NEX-C3), making it all the more compact to carry.
The existing FDA-EV1S OLED viewfinder is compatible with the NEX-F3 for those preferring a more traditional camera view rather than the live view display. The Sony NEX-F3 will be available in June for $600 with an 18-55mm kit lens. Check availability at B&H Photo.
Alongside the NEX-F3, Sony introduced a revised 18-200mm E-mount lens (for NEX models). The new 18-200mm lens is smaller and lighter than the old version. It also comes in black rather than the original silver color. The new lens retails for $850 and should be available in July 2012. Check availability at B&H Photo.
