Sony NEX-C3 is going back

I’ve been using this camera for a few weeks now, and I’ve come to the conclusion that it is not the perfect camera for me, after all. Here’s my reasons:

  • The lens is nice and wide, but has a small amount of noticeable distortion compared to my pro lenses. I know that’s an unfair comparison, but so be it.
  • The camera doesn’t fit as well in my pocket as I’d hoped.
  • The responsiveness and handling are good, but the menu-ing system is quite awkward, even after I spent quite a bit of time trying to customize it to my liking.
  • For the cost, I think I’m going to either upgrade my iPhone 4 to an iPhone 4s, or maybe look at a true compact. But for now, I am grateful for’s return policy.
Stay tuned for my next steps. Meanwhile, I’m going to look for more things to strap my new GoPro HD Hero2 to!
