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.

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

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

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
Powerful supplied software
To help you refine and manage your images, the camera is equipped with computer software including Image Data Converter SR, Image Data Lightbox SR and PlayMemories Home software

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)
