3 Reasons For

Sony Cameras Have Good Reviews

Digital cameras manufactured by Sony have good ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all cameras (not just digital cameras) and found that Sony also has good ratings across its entire range.

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 around for a similar time to it. The most frequently featured flash mode is Second curtain synchro, 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 cameras of this age and spec range from 23mm to 430mm, and the average height is 100mm. The Sony NEX-C3 is fairly short (only 60 millimeters) compared to most of the other comparable spec digital cameras that have been on the market for a similar time to the NEX-C3.

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

The Sony NEX-C3 does not have an image stabiliser. Most of the other cameras that were released around the same time as the NEX-C3 also do not have an image stabiliser.

We compared this camera to all the other digital cameras with an image stabiliser and we think the Sony DSC-HX200V is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The Sony NEX-C3 does not support Full HD video. Most of the other digital cameras that have been available for a similar time to the NEX-C3 also do not support Full HD video.

There are a number of other cameras which also support Full HD video which you might 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

The Sony NEX-C3 does not support WiFi connectivity, although this is within the context that most of the other comparable spec digital cameras that have been around for more than two years also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in alternative digital cameras which also support WiFi connectivity including the Sony ILCE-QX1 ($498.00).

Does Not Support Video Recording

The Sony NEX-C3 does not support video recording, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other similar spec digital cameras that have been available for more than two years also do not support video recording.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Flash

Like most of the other digital cameras that have been around for around the same time as the NEX-C3, the Sony NEX-C3 does not have a built-in flash.

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

Not Waterproof

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

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a GPS

The Sony NEX-C3 does not have a GPS. Most of the other cameras that came out more than two years ago also do not have a GPS.

We compared this digital camera to all the other digital cameras with a GPS and we think the Sony DSC-HX200V is also worth considering.
