Sony NEX-F3 Point and Shoot Cam Spotted in the Wild; Packs AVCHD Capability and 16 MP Sensor

April 27, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

It isn’t just smartphone and tablet secrets that always get leaked. A new rig from Sony which is possibly heading to the point and shoot consumer camera market has now been spotted in wild with a comparatively good quality leaked photo.

But alas, the picture is half framed; giving shutter bugs the chance to see just a corner of the camera. But what is seen is enough to get good dreams till the rig sees day’s light in the official route.

Christened Sony NEX-F3 on its body, the off-white image of the device is presently sharing very little info on its specs. As you can see, the device has some markings on its body for us to make assumptions on its power and features.

Obviously, the writing on the wall is clear – it packs a 16.1 mega pixel sensor which allows you to get crystal clear pictures.

From the minimalist leaked picture, the cam possibly packs a built-in flash, not a horse shoe, which gives us enough reason to believe that the rig is heading for the consumer market to fight the war with other usual point and shoot cameras.

As you can see, there is a wedged curve on its body which looks like a hinge. In all possibilities, it points to the fact that NEX-F3 will pack a display which can be rotated to 180 degrees for easy shooting.

Going to the features front, it is obvious that the camera is elite in its abilities as the body tattoos show that it would bring along AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) shooting capabilities and playback.

Well, that is it for now. We will update you on any possible launch date or pricing details in a short while.
