    Sony NEX-C3 Announcement

    Yeah, I know it was announced last week. But I was on the road and it's hard to stay on top of everything, all the time. Anyway, in case you haven't heard about Sony's latest compact system camera, or you'd just like my take on it, here you go:

    Sony Alpha NEX-C3 Announcement >>

    Incidentally, I didn't spot anything groundbreaking in the NEX-C3 specs. It has a few new exposure features and the resolution has been increased - and by less than 15% - not enough to make any noticable difference. The coolest thing appears to be the new "Focus Peaking" feature, which I didn't even mention in my article. It's also available as a firmware upgrade to NEX-5 and NEX-3 owners so it's not a NEX-C3 exclusive. It is pretty sweet, though. Check it out in this discussion: Nex firmware and focus peaking

    So what do you think of the NEX-C3? Am I missing something or is it just a small incremental update to the NEX-3?

    I agree that it appears to be incremental. Most of the new features are coming to the NEX-3/5 in a FW update anyway. That's why I bought the NEX-3 the day after the C3 announcement. Fedex is supposed to deliver it today actually. I'll be using it almost exclusively on my 10 day trip to the PNW starting this Friday..

    I think you will be well pleased. Have you compared DXO marks with other cameras? If not you should.
