Realistically, it’s the NEX-3N that would interest the modern photographer. Featuring a 16-megapixel sensor, a 180-degree tilting screen, and a zoom lever — Sony calls it the “world’s smallest, lightest interchangeable-lens camera with a large APS-C sized sensor” at just 210 grams. Support for the proprietary “Triluminous Color” for an expanded gamut when images and videos are played back on the company’s Triluminous Bravia displays is also part of the feature lst. The NEX-3N is coming to Europe next month; no word on American or any other availability.
Sony’s A58 gets by with a new 20-megapixel APS-C sensor and processing engine designed for low-noise results with poorly lit areas. A new OLED viewfinder, 8 frames per second shooting and a 15-point autofocus system with subject tracking and the whole catalog of Sony Alpha lenses round out the A58’s resume. It will come out in April; both cameras lack pricing details.
