I am considering the NEX-C3 as a nice camera to take on trips\shoots\vacation\outing\etc where my DSLR would be too large but I do not want to sacrifice my ability to set the exposure of my shots. I know it is possible, but I am concerned how quickly I am able to achieve it.
How can I?
My main flow with my DSLR is to have it set in aperture priority so that the front wheel operates the aperture and the back wheel changes the exposure compensation (+/-). I've found this method ideal since I mostly trust the in camera meter but can quickly change the exposure to taste, all without pressing any buttons or digging through menus.
I know I will not be able to achieve this sort of speed on the NEX-C3. So my question is this, are you able to mimic this work flow without digging through menus or an excessive amount of button presses?
Or is there a workflow on the NEX-C3 that allows you to set exposure in a similar fashion but faster?
I've picked the Sony NEX-C3 simply because it's the newest and has the largest sensor among it's competitors. But, if a competing camera in the same class is capable of doing what I described above please let me know.
Thanks in reading my long winded question!
