If you’re like me and want to take great looking pictures, but don’t know anything about photography terminology (isn’t exposure when people get naked in public and white balance the ratio of white people relative to other races?), then Sony’s just announced NEX-C3 will be right up your alley. It’s the world’s smallest and lightest interchangeable lens camera and features a 16.2 megapixel APC-S size image sensor. What does that mean? DSLR quality photos without an unweildy DSLR sized camera. It also means you can record HD video. One of the bigger changes, though, comes in the form of the intuitive new Photo Creativity interface. It basically replaces fancy photog terms with what they actually mean. Alter the settings and they’ll show up in real time on the rear screen. And if you’re in the mood for altering your photos without the need of a computer, feel free to use any of the included Photo Effects like “Soft Skin” that removes wrinkles and blemishes from subjects.
The NEX-C3 will come in two flavors. If you like black (and who doesn’t?) you can get a 16mm lens kit for $600. For $650 you can get an 18-55mm kit zoom lens in either silver, pink, or the aforementioned black. Both versions will be available starting this August.
