Re: New NEX owner - Sony NEX-F3

First of all don't run before you can walk. So don't shoot full manual until you have mastered A or S mode.

Shooting in A mode with auto ISO is a good start. Then shoot A mode with manual ISO. Get to understand the relationship between aperture and depth of field and speed.

Use the centre ( moveable) focus point for more accuracy. Use Af-C and speed mode if shooting handheld macro, 'burp' shooting will get you more keepers than single shot.

Shoot JPEG if you are not good at PP. Shoot RAW if you are a competent post processor.

Turn off AF assist light.

Enjoy your F3. Its a very good little camera.
