What are your thoughts on this camera? Primarly using to film music videos. What other camera would you reccomend over this for someone just starting out in the same price range.
I use the NEX VG20 and love it. I think the f3 uses the same sensor. With the interchangeable lenses at that price range you should be able to get some good results.
Hi wade – the F3 will give you great images – but you will have a 30 minute video clip length limit and no viewfinder.
Assuming that you're planning to spend about $500 on the NEX-F3, I would spend about the same amounf of money on a used Panasonic GH1 with a viewfinder and no limit on the length of your clips. With this camera, an inexpensive Sigma 19mm f2.8 lens, and a free frimware hack, you can get images like these:

Hope this is helpful and good luck with your videos!
