1 Sony NEX-C3
Sony, $849 sony.com.au
★★★★★ THE last time Sony released a compact, interchangeable-lens camera, it was the smallest available. Somehow, the feat has been repeated with its new model, the NEX-C3. It now weighs 225g, and is shorter and thinner (at 3.3cm). The biggest thing about this camera is its lens. It delivers a 16.2-megapixel resolution and many new shooting options, for experienced photographers and beginners alike. All options must be accessed from the control wheel, which will take training. The C3 can also capture RAW format photos, 720p HD video, 3D panoramic images and it offers a 12,800 ISO rating. Out in July.
