Sony NEX-3 has a whole host of features that include sweeping panorama, HDR and smile shutter. As you can see about a minute into the film, the camera is also weather sealed, though of course, it is always best to avoid extreme conditions when possible. Many comparisons are made to other companies as well as the NEX-5, which is the more advanced version of the NEX-3. Not only does this sleek camera look the part, when used properly, it will preform it as well.

It's a good idea to read the manual first ; 3 different types of focus ; Auto that seem to been used here, Manual, for the Pro's, and than the third sort of focus that you should have tested, a combined auto and manual focus. You use the Auto to "roughly" focus, then halve down the button and you can fine tune in zoom mode.

Note the awful sound associated with original sounf tracks, where we are allowed to hear it.
