    A Closer Look at the Goods on the Turntable in HD Video!! Sony Nex-F3, ECM-SST1, OLED Viewfinder, and Yasuhara 5:1 Macro Lens!!

    Screen shot 2012-07-15 at 6.34.48 AM

    I put all the gear I got so far on the turntable for a 360 preview with informative information on each item. Starting with the Sony Nex-F3, I go over the key features and show you how the screen articulates. I then mount the ECM-SST1 Stereo Mic, and OLED Viewfinder, so you can see exactly what it looks like on the camera from every angle! Next I break out the Yasuhara Nanoha Macro Lens and show you how the LED’s work and then I mount it to the Nex-F3 for closure.

    I went with the turntable this time instead of the normal product photography I do, because the turntable is a little faster for me than taking all the photos and processing them. Let me know if you want to see any close-ups of anything in particular, and I’ll gladly take the photos and post them up asap. I’m on-call for work this week so time is especially limited, and I apologize.

    Check out this HD Video of all the goods, and be sure to select the HD option in the player settings!

    Sony Nex-F3

    Sony Nex-F3 Official Overview and Full Specs

    The Sony Alpha NEX-F3 Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens is not a point-and-shoot and not a DSLR, but it holds its place in the market, intriguing those who want the flexibility that interchangeable lenses and numerous manual and creative features can give them, without having to lug around a huge DSLR body. The body is packaged along with an 18-55mm Sony lens, allowing you to start shooting right from day one.

    Size aside, the Alpha NEX-F3 embodies a number of features that make it a worthy option for any connoisseur of digital cameras. First and foremost would be the 16.1Mp APS-C CMOS sensor. With 16.1Mp, your images will have lush color and impressive detail. Your options for making enlarged prints are boundless as well. Sony’s Exmor APS HD CMOS technology works together with the BIONZ image processor for excellent low light sensitivity and a distinct lack of sensor noise. On the back of the body is a 3.0″ Xtra Fine LCD that boasts Sony’s TruBlack screen which suppresses internal reflections. This LCD also tilts down 45° and up 80° for framing hard-to-get shots.

    In addition to capturing still images, the NEX-F3’s video capabilities do not disappoint. In addition to versatility in lens options, along with a small form-factor, the HD video capture is right up there in importance. Video can be recorded at 1920 x 1080 in a number of frame rates, including 60p and 24p. The camera also uses the AVCHD codec for high-quality capture, and the MP4 codec for easy upload to the Internet. The camera also sports an HDMI output for one-cable sharing of your favorite videos on the big screen (AKA: your HDTV).

    When it comes to what lenses the NEX-F3 takes, Sony made it compatible with their E-Mount series of smaller, lighter lenses designed specifically for Alpha compact interchangeable lens cameras. Using optional LA-EA1 and EA2 adapters you can also attach A-Mount lenses to the camera as well. The LA-EA2 also provides Phase Detection AF as well. The mirror built-in between the two mounts directs a small portion of light to the phase detection AF sensor in the bottom of the unit, making this feature available to you when the adapter is connected.

    As for shooting options and modes, the NEX-F3 has a number of them. First up is the 5.5 frames per second burst shooting mode, at the camera’s full 16.1Mp resolution. This mode enables great sports and kids photos. Another notable feature is Photo Creativity Touch. This mode allows you to be creative with your photos in-camera, right on the LCD screen, in real time. Sweep Panorama and 3D Sweep Panorama modes allow for capture of scenic vistas and 16:9 (wide angle) shots as panoramas and in wondrous 3D, respectively. Among the other features you’ll find Object Tracking AF, Auto HDR, Intelligent Auto Focus, iAUTO mode, and many others.

    APS-C Size HD Image Sensor
    The same sensor format that Sony builds into the full-sized DSLRs–with 13 times the area of the typical point-and-shoot image sensor–APS-C makes the difference between “snapshots” and “photographs,” delivering an exceptional combination of high resolution, high sensitivity and gorgeous, blurred backgrounds
    Full HD 1080 / 60i / 24p Video
    Record super smooth 1080 Full HD Video in either 60i or 24p frames per second. Records in your choice of 1080/60i or 24p AVCHD format, or in PC-friendly 1080/30p MP4 format

It virtually doubles the effective focal length of whatever lens you’re using providing greater shooting flexibility
    Built-in flash
    Perfect when an extra burst of light is needed to get the shot, the built-in flash combines with high ISO sensitivity to enable shooting in just about any setting
    Interchangeable lenses

    Capture expansive landscapes automatically. Press the shutter, sweep vertically or horizontally. The camera does the rest, continuously shooting images and stitching them together. Up to 23 MP image size. Up to 202 degrees maximum sweep angle (16mm focal length)
    Anti-Motion Blur mode
    Corrects for subject movement to capture amazingly clean and sharp images in low light. The camera leverages the large, APS-C image sensor and captures six images in a fraction of a second. Combining the data from all six creates a single image that minimizes subject blur
    Hand-held Twilight Mode
    Get cleaner and sharper nighttime pictures–beyond the capability of traditional cameras–without using flash or a tripod. The camera leverages the large, APS-C image sensor and captures six images in a fraction of a second. Combining the data from all six creates a single image of extraordinary detail and low noise
    Auto HDR built into camera
    High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography captures more scene contrast than a single exposure can handle by combining the best highlight detail from one shot and the best shadow detail from another for one incredible shot. Until recently, you needed a computer and editing software. Sony builds HDR in. Handles severe backlighting and other high-contrast scenes. Captures in a split second
    Live View LCD
    The LCD monitor is active full-time for composing shots. Provides a what-you-see-is-what-you-get preview of white balance, focus, depth of field, exposure and 100% framing accuracy, plus informative on-screen displays
    Tiltable 3″ LCD screen

    On-screen Help Guide
    Provides a ready-reference that explains the camera’s modes and settings. It walks through the camera’s operation so you get the best shot. Helps you advance from basic operation to greater sophistication
    Control Wheel + Customizable Soft Keys
    Unlike cameras that bristle with knobs, buttons and dials, the NEX-F3 features a simple turn-and-click Control Wheel and context-sensitive Soft Keys. It’s elegant, uncluttered and intuitive
    BIONZ image processor
    The brain of the camera is a refined version of Sony’s BIONZ image processor. Its chroma noise reduction delivers high-resolution, low-noise photos even at ISO 16000 sensitivity. Also enables fast processing for up to 5.5 fps continuous shooting of data-intensive 16.1 megapixel images, 2D / 3D Sweep Panorama modes and 6 image layering
    Dynamic Range Optimizer (DRO)
    Dynamic Range Optimizer improves results with backlit subjects and recovers details hidden in shadows. Settings include Auto, Level with a choice of five operating levels and Off
    Accepts Alpha DSLR A-mount lenses
    Using the LA-EA1 or LA-EA2 adaptor (sold separately), you can attach the full selection of A-mount system lenses, which includes 34 current models and an installed base of millions of lenses worldwide. Operational restrictions apply

    Optimizes exposure based on 49 segments. Choice of Multi, Center and Spot metering accommodates a full range of shooting situations
    Manual Focus Assist
    Greatly magnifies the viewfinder image when you touch the focus ring, making it easy to get razor-sharp images. Works with E-mount lenses only
    Peaking for Precise Focus
    The Peaking function makes precise manual focusing much easier by highlighting the edges that are in focus in your choice of three colors (white, red, or yellow). This is especially helpful during macro or portrait photography where your focal plane can make or break your shot
    RAW image capture
    The NEX-F3 saves your pictures as compact JPEG files or ultra-high quality RAW files. RAW files save images prior to compression, white balance, sharpness and color enhancement. This retains maximum latitude for enhancing the image on your PC
    “Background Defocus” control
    Cameras with APS-C sensors take beautiful pictures because they can blur the background. That helps make your subject stand out as the center of attention in portrait photography. But you’ve had to know about aperture f-stops and shutter speeds. Now Sony makes it easy. Simply turn the Control Wheel one way for backgrounds in focus, the other for background defocus
    Accepts image stabilized lenses
    Selected E-mount lenses incorporate Optical SteadyShot image stabilization to combat the effects of camera shake. Building stabilization into the lenses enables the camera body to be remarkably thin and light

    Eight Scene Selection Modes
    These help you get the shot by optimizing the camera for specific shooting situations. Select from Portrait, Sports Action, Macro, Landscape, Sunset, Night View, Night Portrait and Hand-held Twilight modes
    Six Creative Style settings
    Control how the camera processes your images with six finishing styles: Standard, Vivid, Portrait, Landscape, Sunset and B&W. You can even fine-tune contrast, saturation, and sharpness to your personal taste
    P/A/S/M operating modes
    The NEX-F3 offers a full range of controls from the beginner’s iAUTO mode to P/A/S/M: Program, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority and Manual. On-screen prompts help you refine your skills, build your confidence and exercise greater creative control
    Anti-Dust Technology
    Anti-Dust Technology helps keep the CMOS sensor clean, resulting in consistently clear pictures. First a static-free coating on the sensor’s low-pass filter helps repel dust. Then vibration automatically dislodges dust from the sensor
    Up to 470 Shots of battery life
    Take up to 470 shots on a single charge with Sony lithium-ion Stamina battery power. Sony’s InfoLITHIUM battery system enables you to see the percent of power remaining, so you can keep shooting in confidence

    Yasuhara Nanoha Macro Lens 5:1

    Yasuhara Nanoha Macro Lens – Official Overview and Full Specs

    The Yasuhara Nanoha Macro Lens 5:1 for Sony E Mount (NEX) gives you a true macro lens for photographing at 4:1 or 5:1 magnification. A removable lighting module has 3 LEDs for lighting very small objects – this is usually necessary because the lens itself is so close as to block light from the subject. Also included are 4 plastic holders, which can be mounted to the front of the lens to maintain a steady distance between lens and subject. These plastic holders can be easily modified by cutting them to fit your subject. Ten coated spherical lenses in seven groups reduce reflection and the sturdy mount is made of steel. Focusing range is 0.43-0.78″ (11-19 mm).

    • Macro lens offers 4x to 5x magnification
    • Removable 3-LED lighting for successful macro lighting
    • Focusing range of 0.43-0.78″
    • Four plastic attaching frames for photographing very small objects without a tripod
    Compatibility Sony E Mount (NEX)
    Groups 7
    Elements 10
    Focus Range 0.43-0.78″(10.92 -19.81 mm)
