 The NEX-F3 was the ‘cheaper’ among the two but that doesn’t mean it has bad attributes. It is a pocket-sized camera but it compacts a 16.1 effective megapixel Exmor™ APS HD CMOS sensor which will let you capture high quality photos, built-in flash helpful in low-light conditions, and in addition to that, you can record crispy looking videos through the help of its Full HD video (50i/25p) ability. It also has the nice defocus effects that are often used in DSLR cameras to make your photo subject look great in a beautifully blurred background. Plus, an amazing 180° tiltable LCD screen for easy self portraits!
