Sony Announces NEX-3N Mirrorless Camera
By Joseph Tepper, February 20, 2013 @ 04:59 PM (EST)

After photos leaked for it last week, Sony has officially announced their new NEX-3N mirrorless camera.

The 3N is an entry-level electronic viewfinder interchangeable lens (EVIL) camera that features a 16.1 megapixel APS-C sized CMOS sensor with an ISO range of 200 to 16000. It replaces the NEX-F3 as the company’s beginner EVIL camera, designed to serve as a stepping-stone from compact to interchangeable lenses.

Noticeable changes from its predecessor include a compact-style zoom lens around the shutter button and a built-in flash. Sony is claiming it to be the smallest, lightest camera with an APS-C sensor.

As for underwater photography, it is unknown if we will see a selection of housings down the road. The previous NEX-F3 didn’t attract attention of housing makers, but with more compact characteristics in a smaller body, the NEX-3N could see housings from the likes of Nauticam.

The NEX-3N will be released sometime in March with prices to follow.
