3 Reasons For

Sony Has Good Digital Camera Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all Sony digital cameras and also specifically for Sony cameras and found that in both cases Sony had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Features One Flash Mode

The number of flash modes featured on the Sony NEX-C3 is more than most comparable spec digital cameras that have been available for more than two years. The most frequently featured flash mode is Suppressed, but this flash mode is not featured on this camera. The flash modes Flash Off are also featured on this Sony camera.

Chart Edit

Very Short

The heights of digital cameras of this age and spec range from 23mm to 430mm, and the average height is 100mm. With a height of only 60 millimeters, the Sony NEX-C3 is one of the shorter digital cameras of this type and age amongst digital cameras of this age.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

The Sony NEX-C3 does not have an image stabiliser. Most of the other cameras of a comparable age and spec to the NEX-C3 also do not have an image stabiliser.

There are a number of alternative digital cameras which also have an image stabiliser that you might also want to look at including the Sony DSC-HX200V which also has a higher rating.

There are a number of alternative cameras which also support Full HD video which you might also want to look at including the DSC-HX200V, or the NEX-3NL both from Sony which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

There are a number of alternative digital cameras which also support WiFi connectivity which you might also want to consider including the Samsung DV151 (£65.00), or the Sony ILCE-QX1 (£229.00).

Does Not Have a Built-In Flash

The Sony NEX-C3 does not have a built-in flash, although this is within the context that most of the other cameras that came out around the same time as the NEX-C3 also do not have a built-in flash.

We compared all the other cameras which also have a built-in flash to this camera and we think the DSC-HX200V, or the NEX-3NL both from Sony which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Not Waterproof

The Sony NEX-C3 is not waterproof. Most of the other cameras that came out around the same time as the NEX-C3 are also not waterproof.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other digital cameras of this spec and age, the Sony NEX-C3 is not 3D compatible.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a GPS

The Sony NEX-C3 does not have a GPS, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other cameras that were released more than two years ago also do not have a GPS.

We think you might also be interested in other cameras which also have a GPS including the Sony DSC-HX200V which is also higher rated.
