We compared this digital camera to all the other 3D compatible cameras and we think the ST200, and the NX20 both from Samsung or the Olympus PEN E-PL3 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

We compared all the other digital cameras that support an MS PRO Duo|MS Pro-HG Duo|SD|SDHC|SDXC memory to this camera and we think because of it's better review score, the NEX-5 (£199.00), and the Alpha A7S (£1,339.99) both from Sony is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a digital camera with a better memory card type then you might want to look at the PEN E-PL3 (SD|SDHC|SDXC), or the PEN E-P5 (£429.99) (Eye-Fi|SD|SDHC|SDXC) both from Olympus which is also higher rated.

With a screen size of 3 inches, the Sony NEX-F3 has a relatively typical screen size compared to most of the other cameras of this type and age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 3" screen digital cameras currently available including the Olympus PEN E-PL3, the Sigma DP2 Merrill, or the Pentax Q7 (£356.37) which has better reviews.

If you are looking for a camera with a larger screen size then you might also want to consider the NX300 (£499.99) (3.31"), the NX300M (£269.99) (3.31"), or the NX2000 (£514.99) (3.7") all from Samsung which is also higher rated.

Average Megapixel Count

The Sony NEX-F3 has a pretty average megapixel count (16.1 megapixels) compared to most of the other MILC digital cameras that are a comparable age to the NEX-F3.

We compared this digital camera to all the other 16.1MP cameras and we think the NEX-5RK, and the NEX-3 (£299.99) both from Sony or the Olympus PEN E-PM2 (£349.00) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a higher megapixel count then you might want to consider the Leica X Vario (Typ 107) (16.2MP), the Pentax K-01 (16.28MP), or the Fujifilm X-E2 (£459.48) (16.3MP) which also has a higher rating.

If you are looking for a camera with a bigger digital zoom then you might want to consider the Alpha A7S (£1,339.99) (8x), the Alpha A5100 (£389.99) (8x), or the Alpha A5100L (£518.00) (8x) all from Sony which also has a higher rating.

Tilting LCD now allows portrait framing
Flash is now built in (but see Con about flash performance)
Generally very good image quality
Excellent high ISO performance for its class
Low shutter button position makes grip feel cramped
Menu layout seems arbitrary and takes a while to learn
Division between stills and video in playback mode isn't intuitive
Limited downward tilt for LCD
AF performance lags SLRs and the best CSCs

(Verified Purchase)

This board has been the heart of my Freenas build for 6 months. I've never had an issue, everything was recognized right away by freebsd, uses intel nics. Couldn't ask for much more for the price...

Decent layout, reliable, plenty of internal fan headers
Takes standard desktop memory
Several slots the ITX version does not have
Sips power
Lower power board with plenty of expansion slots
Could use more sata ports
4-pin fan headers would have been nice
Board was DOA
I had high hopes for this board as I planned on building a NAS box tonight but that all went down the drain after I attached the PSU to the board and realized nothing was turning on. My initial though
This is the second board I purchased from ASRock hoping that the first board I received was a hiccup. Unfortunately, it's a running theme with me and these motherboards as they refuse to work
