Beginner's Paradise

Flickr has always been very popular but I stumbled upon it very recently. I was totally blown away by breath-taking pics people have posted there. Oh I so want to capture something like that as well. Got bitten by photography bug & started my deep dive into worlds of SLRs, cameras, lenses, photography, ISO, shutter, aperture, focal length & what not. A person who has always been satisfied with his smartphone camera for regular pics had to learn a lot in this expensive new world.

My first jo...

For travel with less luggage

I bought this camera for primary one reason, this is compact and good in image quality.
Even though I own a Canon DSLR with good L series lenses , nowadays I am more fond of using this camera for my all travel.

excellent image quality in relatively portable size.

i always look for a camera for best image quality.I have Canon dslr, olympus XZ1, Fuji XF1, Canon S90 etc.Some People may understand which type of camera are these.
All these are wonderful cameras, still i was looking for Sony RX100,.
After two months of research, i decided to buy RX100 because of its 1 inch sensor.But suddenly I thought of mirrorless models so I purchase Olympus EPL3.But its kit lens was very poor quality and was quite big in size, so i returned it.Again I went to purchase s...

Excellent camera in a small package

This review is based upon my first impressions as I received this item only few days back. I feel the camera is pretty fast in taking pictures(I've no experience with DSLR though) and the UI incorporated is pretty self explanatory. The images are excellent and I believe the product description here is not accurate, since they'll provide you camera bag and a 4GB Sony Card.

Highly recommend for who want to migrate from point and shoot to Pro

fast, easy to use, excellent image quality.

A Nice Camera for those switching from P2S to DSLR

Hi, I am the proud owner of this camera. Before buying this camera I had not really gone out to find out the difference between DLSR and Point to shoot camera. But out of curiosity I started to feel the difference and compared the camera under the same category. I was clear about what I wanted, I never wanted to buy bulky and big sized camera. The Sony NEX-3N was the right choice for me considering it size, grip the ease of use this was actually a camera for people like me.
I would highly rec...

I never thought that I will get DSLR quality pics with the compact camera. Sensor Size as APS-C, it is delight to do low light photography. Awesome Sony. Thanks to Flipkart and Seller for shipping within a Day.

Best of Mirrorless camera at entry level

It has same sensor found on entry/medium level DSLR. Hence the low light photos and videos are quite great and can easily replace the handy-cam for occasional use.

Photo quality is very good, especially the colour reproduction, somehow I also feel that the SONY cameras gives the best results for skin tones when shooting a group of people where skin tones varies a lot(specially for brown skins which we most Indians have) :P . What I mean to say that the in other cameras skin tones somehow com...
