Back to top
The Sony Alpha NEX-3 digital camera with 16mm lens combines the capability of Digital SLR technology with convenient interchangeable lenses in a neat design that can be carried easily in a pocket or bag. The Alpha NEX-3 is ‘mirrorless', making the camera extremely slim. The camera features a re-designed Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor with 14.2 effective megapixels. This makes it a much larger sensor than that usually found inside a compact camera and therefore makes the extremely low image noise and creative defocus effects normally found on DSLRs possible. A powerful Bionz processor enables even higher quality of still and video images – the Sony Alpha NEX-3 can capture the action at up to 7fps.

Sony E 16mm f2-8 Pancake Lens

The Sony E 16mm f2-8 Pancake Lens is a 16mm wide-angle bright lens that delivers natural looking photos even in low light. The lens offers a smooth, quiet autofocus operation in a high quality, sturdy build. The optional (sold separately) VCL-ECU1 Ultra Wide Converter and VCL-ECF1 Fisheye Converter give further creative opportunities.

More details on the Sony Alpha NEX-3

  • Digital SLR picture quality and responsive shooting
  • 14.2 effective megapixels Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor
  • HD movie recording with stereo sound, fast and silent autofocus
  • Intuitive new interface with Help Guide and Shooting Tips
  • E-mount lens system compatible with a DSLR lenses (with optional Mount Adaptor)
  • Sweep Panorama with 3D capability**

Never Get Lost Menu
Easy-to-use menu interface makes the features of the Sony NEX-3 easy to access to even amateur photographers. The menu offers an in-built photography guide to help make things simple, and shooting parameters can be easily accessed via an intuitive control wheel and two soft keys. For example, you can preview depth of field changes 'live' on the LCD (only when an E-mount lens is attached).

Big, bright 3" LCD
The Sony NEX-3 features a 3" LCD screen with Xtra Fine and TruBlack technology that tilts up or down for optimum viewing in any shooting position. There is an auto-brightness button to give you excellent visibility even when you're outdoors. The TruBlack technology means you can view your images in vivid, high contrast colours.

HD video recording
The Sony NEX-3 offers HD video recording at the touch of the dedicated Movie REC button and shoots video with stereo sound as MPEG4 files, making them perfect for storing or sharing. The smart-accessory terminal accepts the compact ECM-SST1 Stereo Microphone (sold separately) that captures high quality sound.

Auto HDR (as seen on the A550 DSLR)
The popular Auto HDR functionality seen on the Sony Alpha 550 Digital SLR has been further refined so that the NEX-3 can now shoot a high-speed burst of three images at different exposure values that are electronically combined in-camera. This produces a single High Dynamic Range image with extended highligh and shadow detail.

Super compact clip-on flash
The Sony Alpha NEX-3 is supplied with a super-compact clip-on flash that attaches via the smart accessory terminal when needed for low-light shooting. Other optional accessories include the FDA-SV1 Optical Viewfinder plus colour coordinated cases and shoulder straps.

Are you eligible for finance?

Applicants must be:

  • Aged 18 years or older from the application date
  • In permanent UK residence for a minimum of three years
  • Fulfil at least one of the following employment criteria:
    • In regular, permanent employment.
    • Retired from regular employment - With a minimum age of 50.
    • Not working through disability.
    • Self-employed.

Note: All applicants will be subject to a credit reference check by the lender.

Credit is subject to application and status. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photographic act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.

Can I repay early? If so how?

No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.

What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?

Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.

What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?

Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
