    "There was a time when you had to choose between the true photographic quality of a professional-looking SLR and the carefree shooting spontaneity of a pop-in-your pocket compact camera. Things have changed. Now one of the world's lightest, most compact interchangeable lens cameras - the revolutionary Sony Alpha NEX-3 - gives everyday photographers all they need to shoot high quality, impressive photos without having to master any complex photographic techniques. The NEX-3 is a small, easy-to-use camera that will help you shoot professional looking photos and stunning HD movies as and when the mood takes you."
