Small!Sony is a master of shrinking everything down, and it shows with the C3. Where the previous NEX3 is already a small beast, the C3 is even smaller – it is about 15-percent smaller than the diminutive NEX3. The only reason it is not any smaller is due...

The Sony NEX-C3 rounds out the bottom end of the NEX line; however, it’s still quite the full-featured camera. I’ve already raved about the Sony NEX-5n (aside from a now-fixed problem with the audio capture in movie mode). The NEX-C3 is just as impre...
