After the massive leak of pictures showing these exact cameras on April 30th, their official release isn’t as exciting as it probably should be. But nevertheless, the new NEX-F3 and A37 are now an official part of the Sony lineup, complete with a new 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 lens.
The specs seem to be exactly what we had expected. The F3 comes with a 16.1MP APS-C sensor, 180-degree tiltable screen (great for self portraits), ISO 100-16,000, pop-up tiltable flash, 1080p video capability and “Clear Image Zoom” which is essentially a 2x digital zoom that somehow maintains full pixel count.
The larger, translucent mirror A37 also comes with a 16.1MP APS-C sensor, 1080p video capabilities, ISO 100-16,000, and Clear Image Zoom technology. However, the camera also boasts 7fps high-speed shooting with full-time continuous autofocus, in-body image stabilization, and a 15-point (3 cross-type) autofocus system.
Both cameras are expected to hit store shelves in June.
