Sony’s newest entrant into the compact interchangeable lens category, the NEX-3N, is slightly smaller than the previous iteration and offers some cool improvements as well. The NEX-3N is the smallest and lightest interchangeable lens camera with an APS-C sized sensor – it weighs 210g (269g w/ battery and memory card).
With a pop up flash, it also includes a 16.1MP sensor with a max IOS of 16,000. There is also a 3-inch LCD screen that can swivel 180-degrees allowing you to quickly take self portraits or film full HD movies. And a single battery charge will give you around 480 shots.
The NEX-3N is compatible with up to 13 E-mount lenses that offer a wide variety of focal lengths, controllable by a simple switch mounted next to the shutter button. Adding to that is Sony’s TRILUMINOS Color feature, which offers a dramatically expanded palette of vivid, ultra-realistic colors when videos and still images are played back on any BRAVIA TV with support for TRILUMINOS Display”. Sony’s Auto Object Framing will auto crop the frame and hopefully produces the best possible shot composition.
No word on a US release date, but the Sony NEX-3N hits Europe sometime this month for a yet to be disclosed price.
