Sony Announces the α NEX-3N Compact Interchangeable lens digital camera

Sony Alpha NEX-3N Mirrorless digital camera has an Exmor APS-C CMOS image sensor with a resolution of 16.1MP and a BIONZ image processor. It accepts Sony E-Mount lenses, including the supplied Power Zoom (PZ) lens, which has an effective focal length of 16-50mm (35mm equivalent: 24-75mm) and is equipped with both ED and aspherical elements. The lens is retractable and compact, measuring just 3/16" at its shortest length.

The SONY NEX-3N also features a large 3.0" LCD screen that has a resolution of 460,800 dots and tilts 180° up and 13° down. Capture Full HD 1080i video at 60fps and 1080p video at 24fps. The NEX-3N is effective in challenging lighting conditions without using the built-in flash, thanks to a wide ISO range of 100-16000 and advanced noise reduction. The camera has an Intelligent AF system and manual focus capability. Auto Object Framing fills the frame with the subject by automatically recognizing scenes and cropping accordingly. Using the Photo Creativity feature, one'll enjoy easy access to Picture Effect settings and controls for Background Defocus, Brightness, Color and Vividness.

The Exmor APS-C HD CMOS image sensor with a resolution of 16.1MP allows for clear, detailed, low-noise shots in dim lighting conditions, often without the use of flash. The sensor has RGB primary color filters. Color space is sRGB standard (with sYCC gamut) and Adobe RGB standard, compatible with TRILUMINOS Color. Capture JPEG (Standard, Fine, Extra Fine), RAW, RAW+JPEG and 3D MPO images

BIONZ Image Processor Chroma noise reduction delivers high-resolution, low-noise photos even at ISO 16000 sensitivity. Long Exposure NR can be turned on or off and is available at shutter speeds longer than 1 sec. High ISO NR has High, Normal and Low modes. The processor also enables up to 4fps continuous shooting.

The 16-50mm features a motor zoom lever enabling effortless one-handed operation and smooth zooming--even when shooting self-portraits. Measuring just 3/16" when fully retracted, this compact lens has one ED (extra low-dispersion) element for correcting chromatic aberrations, as well as four aspherical elements for minimizing coma and other types of lens aberrations, even at the widest apertures.

Wide ISO Range The combination of a broad sensitivity range of 100-16000 (for stills; 100-3200 for videos) and advanced noise reduction allows the Sony NEX-3N to capture clear, detailed images in challenging lighting conditions--without requiring the built-in flash.

The NEX-3N camera features a built-in pop-up flash with pre-flash TTL metering has a guide number of 19.7' (6.0 m) to compensate for dim lighting when the CMOS sensor and high ISO sensitivity alone aren't quite enough to get proper exposure. Offers a coverage angle equivalent to that of a 16mm focal length lens.

At this time Sony also announced the Cyber-shot DSC-HX300 Digital Camera . Featuring 20.4 megapixel BSI Exmor R CMOS sensor and a powerful Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens with 50x optical zoom capability offers the 35mm focal length equivalency of a 24-1200mm lens, for wide-angle to super-telephoto reach. This is an incredibly long telephoto zoom lens able to capture subjects near and far. The maximum aperture of f/2.8 at the wide-angle end offers effective low-light imaging.
