Sony NEX-C3 camera
Reducing the size of its internal circuitry visibly shrinks the Sony NEX C3 camera size and achieves a body weight of just 225 grams (8 ounces) - nearly 6% lighter than its predecessor, the Sony NEX 3 camera. Image quality, functionality and usability of the Sony NEX-C3 camera also surpass that of the Sony NEX-3 camera model. The resolution of the Sony NEX-C3 large Exmor APS HD CMOS image sensor is boosted to 16.2 megapixels, capturing digital pictures and stunning 720p HD video with breath taking clarity. The large, DSLR-sized sensor of the Sony NEX-C3 camera also lets users produce pro-quality background defocus effects, whether shooting HD video or photos.

“Building on the great success of last year’s Sony Alpha NEX camera launch, the new Sony NEX-C3 digital camera takes the idea of ‘small camera body, SLR quality pictures’ to a whole new level,” said Kristen Elder, director of Sony Alpha digital imaging at Sony. “The Sony NEX-C3 camera’s brand new, large CMOS image sensor and updated interface will allow all digital photographers, regardless of experience level, to produce unique photographs. The new Sony NEX-C3 camera is a perfect combination of design, performance and creativity that fits a wide range of activities and shooting styles.”
Sony NEX-C3 battery
The Sony NEX-C3 digital camera works even harder to capture amazing pictures and HD video clips between battery charges. Improved energy efficiency boosts battery life to a generous 400 pictures per battery charge - a more than 20 percent increase from the both the Sony NEX-5 and Sony NEX-3 cameras.
Sony NEX-C3 features
Sony’s multi-shot technologies further broaden the possibilities of the Sony NEX-C3 digital camera. 3D Sweep Panorama photo mode captures extra-wide pictures that can be viewed in 3D on a 3DTV with compatible 3D glasses. Sony Auto HDR “stacks” a high-speed burst of 3 successive exposures to capture extreme shadow and highlight details in a single frame. Similarly, Handheld Twilight and Anti-Motion Blur modes automatically combine 6 exposures to capture smooth, low-noise pictures. This avoids hand-blur and subject-blur when shooting in available light.
