Sony announces NEX-3N

Sony has announced the NEX-3N, its entry-level NEX camera, replacing the NEX-F3.

Sony Alpha NEX-3N Key Specification :

  • 16.1 megapixels
  • CMOS sensor
  • BIONZ imaging processor
  • ISO 200 - 16000
  • 25 Number of focus points
  • 3″ tilting LCD Screen
  • 1920 x 1080 video recording

Sony claimed that it has smaller body than the F3, and it is the smallest, lightest mirrorless camera to feature an APS-C sensor, despite featuring a built-in flash. Sony Alpha NEX-3N will available in Europe from March 2013. Price to be expected with current NEX-F3. The camera will be bundled with the e-mount 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 power zoom lens, to make the most of the camera's zoom control.

My Opinion : Once a year, Sony NEX series is getting refreshment and I am getting tired remembering the model naming convention. Yes it confuse me too much :P Nevertheless, nice to see Sony tried to shrink to size of mirrorless camera while maintaining the CMOS sensor. Perhaps in future we could see pocketable sized mirrorless?
